Natural Remedies for Motion Sickness

Motion Sickness is a very uncomfortable condition. It occurs when there’s a conflict among your senses. For instance, if you are on a spinning ride moving you around and upside down but your eye sees one thing, while your muscles feel another, and your inner ears sense something else, then your brain will receive mixed signals, and it will lead to you feeling dizzy and nauseous. Your inner ears help control your sense of balance and are part of the vestibular system network. This system sends information about what’s going on around you to your brain to decipher the data, such as if you are standing or lying down. Sometimes the brain gets confused, and you get motion sickness. Who might get motion sickness? An estimated one in three people experiences motion sickness at some point. Women and children age two to 12 are most at risk. Still, the condition can affect anyone.

Let’s explore how you can treat it naturally.

DIY Tips to Remedy the issue

  • Breathe in Fresh Air
  • Relax. Some people concentrate on counting backward from 100. Closing your eyes may help.
  • Fix your gaze on a stable object. For example, look at the horizon if you are on a boat. Look through the windshield if in a car.
  •  Eat lightly before traveling but do not fast.
  • Avoid reading while in a car, plane, or any form of transportation. Do not sit in the back of the bus or airplane.
  • Do not travel on a full stomach. Avoid grease and spicy foods before travel. Rather than a large meal, offer snacks and something to drink. Stay hydrated because dehydration can exacerbate motion sickness. Keep healthy snacks in the car to use throughout roadtrips.

Natural Remedies

Try a combination of these remedies to see which one works best for you:

Raw Ginger helps prevent nausea.

Mint. Chewing peppermint may calm the body. 

Stimulating specific points just below the wrist helps ease nausea. 

Hevert Pharmaceuticals offers a homeopathic remedy for the prevention and temporary relief of symptoms of motion sickness, such as nausea, vomiting, and dizziness.

A little preparation goes a long way and knowing the vestibular system is tricking the brain really helps put things into perspective.

Safe and healthy travels to all.
