Motion Sickness

Motion Sickness

This is a disorder of the vestibular part of the middle ear, caused by a discoordination between messages received by the brain from the eyes (which may indicate that the world is still) and the ears (which tell the brain it is moving).

First Aid

If you are suffering from motion sickness on a boat, go out on deck and look at the horizon; this will confirm via your eyes that the world is moving underneath you. If you are in a car, avoid reading and look out of the window.

Herbal Treatments

Chew a piece of fresh Wild Ginger root or crystallized stem ginger.
