How to Naturally Prevent Motion Sickness
Even people who are not normally plagued with motion sickness can become nauseous on a particularly turbulent flight, boatride, or busride. But there are certain things you can keep on hand to help alleviate these symptoms, whether you have a history with motion sickness or just want to be prepared.
If you know you’re going to feel sick when flying, drink small quantities of fluids (20-25 ML) every 15-30 minutes or sip something every 5-10 minutes. You’ll have enough in you to keep you hydrated but not enough that will trigger becoming sick.
If a particular fragrance is pleasing to you, you can spray it on a handkerchief or your clothing and keep smelling it throughout your trip. While you can use what you like, the recommended fragrance for nausea is lemon. You might not be able to bring a lemon with you on an international flight, but you should be able to find something that smells like lemon easily.
Another idea from Dr. Prashanth is to keep cardamom seeds in your mouth. Pop in two at a time and keep them there until they dissolve, then replace them. Alternatively, bhavana shunti, a product made of natural ginger will work as well. Bhavana Shunti looks difficult to buy online but ginger anything should help to alleviate nausea, digestion pains, and elimination issues.
Dr. Prashanth also recommends getting up out of your seat and walking around every one to two hours to divert your mind a little and to get exposure to other smells going on around the plane, if that’s where your nausea comes about.
