Ginger works very efficiently when it comes to nausea, just sip a cup of freshly prepared ginger tea, flavored subtly with lemon and honey. There is yet another tasty way of handling your nausea triggered by gastritis or upset tummy. Wash and remove the peel of a 2 inch ginger piece. Finely grate it and add to a small mixing cup. Add the juice of 1 lemon and about 1 tbsp honey. Keep sipping this concoction every now and then to calm down your frowning tummy. If you are in the first trimester of your pregnancy, then please do check with your doctor before trying this home remedy for morning sickness.
