Ailment: Jet lag
Remedy: Ginger tea
Take a piece of fresh ginger, the size of your thumbnail, or bigger if you like your tea strong. Crush it, put it in a mug and fill with hot or boiling water. Leave it to steep for 5 minutes.
Fresh ginger is available at most grocers and Asian stores. Dried ginger powder has different properties and is not as effective. Similarly, ginger tea bags are not very effective.

An hour before flying, drink a quarter teaspoon of ginger powder stirred into a cup of water. Alternatively, drink ginger tea. A quarter teaspoon of nutmeg is also soothing, and helps with jet lag
