You can also ask your doctor for marinol, which is a synthetic anti emetic made from marijuana that is mostly non intoxicating. You can also get edible marijuana if its legal in your state... Low doses shouldn't be intoxicating.

I take two with a very large glass of water (because the ginger can burn the throat) and it works for me. I have a lot of nausea due to a medication I must take and I do not know how I would function without the ginger.
If you can use ginger tea, wonderful. But if you cannot, the capsules may work for you as they do for me. And they are cheap. I pay a little over four dollars on amazon for sixty capsules.

(Just one thing from personal experience: have the tea all by itself, and don't have it, if at the same time you have lemon juice. They seem to chemically react in the stomach - ouch.) And, make sure you let the leaves steep for a good five minutes at least in the water, with a lid over them to prevent all the peppermint oils from wafting away. You want those oils in the tea.
