One Mythbusters episode found that ginger worked fairly effectively to reduce motion induced nausea:
But can it do the same for chemo-induced nausea?
According to this Cancer Network article it can!
"So, where, if anywhere, does ginger fit into prevention of nausea in patients receiving chemotherapy? Given the limited data, evidence-based literature supporters would argue against its use in practice. However, patients without bleeding risk or diabetes who desire incorporation of ginger into their preventative treatment may be able to do so without harmful effects, after understanding the risks and benefits." (My emphasis).
What has been your experience?
