Motion Sickness


About
Motion Sickness can occur during traveling or other types of motion like riding on an elevator or swinging. Other factors that may cause motion sickness include genetics, anxiety, and eating close to traveling.


Notes
  • Make sure you are taking supplements for overall good health. If you are not taking these basic supplements, we recommend Enfuz from Vitabase. When you take a small packet of pills each day, you get all the basic nutrition you need. Each packet contains a multi-vitamin, CoQ10 (for heart health), Omega 3, Vitamin D-3, a probiotic, and a powerful set of antioxidants to help your body fight off disease.
  • Be careful of over the counter products that may not be effective and cause side effects.
  • Most of motion sickness is psychological.
  • Papaya may aid in helping motion sickness.
  • Talk to your doctor as a last resort for a prescription.
  • The liver needs to be looked at if you have nausea symptoms.


Advice
  • Carry whole wheat crackers and olives with you to help nausea.
  • Foods can cause an digestive imbalance such as spicy, sugary, salty, fatty , and heavy foods.
  • Need to eat more smaller meals through out the day.
  • Odors and smells can bring on motion sickness.
  • Sipping on green tea could help the stomach for long trips.
  • Take deep breaths and be still, stay cool and have fresh air, do not read while traveling, and traveling at night helps with motion sickness.
  • The inner ear should not be altered by alcohol. This will cause motion sickness.
