Default ginger pills???

Where do you get ginger pills, what do they taste like, how many do you take, can you take them after you are sick?

you can get them at any health food store. Anything ginger works fine, i like crystalized ginger candy, ginger snap cookies and gingerale. You take it at the first sign of the queezies, and get outside into the fresh air.

you can get the ginger candy anywhere. It depends upon what your local health food store stocks, if they will have it or not.

Wal-marts or most drug stores also carry the pills. Swallow them with water (there is no taste). I took two every morning on our cruise and was never bothered by any kind of motion sickness.
