5 Natural Remedies for Motion Sickness

Have you thought about going on a cruise this summer or a long road trip? If you suffer from motion sickness in general you may have reason to be concern. This can turn a family vacation or an otherwise enjoyable tripe into a nightmare. Many have turned to medication, both prescribed and over-the-counter, but for less severe cases there are many who have reported success with a few natural remedies you may already have at home.

Gingerale, ginger tea, and even ginger candies have all been recommended for those dizzy spells and in their prevention. Take a little ginger with you wherever you go. Though it can be good for an upset stomach it has been used by most as a preventative treatment,so make sure to get some in your system before you hit the road.

Special Measures
You may be able to prevent motion sickness by taking certain precautionary measures leading up to your trip. Limiting your intake of food, alcoholic beverages, and other substances that may upset the stomach before you take your trip. You may also want to try and position yourself accordingly. You may do this by taking test rides to determine which allows you experience the least motion.

Some have also turned to other coping mechanicsms like avoiding visual contact with the road or any close objects. Sometimes it's best to keep your eyes closed altogether. Some evidence has shown, however, that drivers are less likely to experience motion sickness on car rides. This is because their brains are partially focused on the task at hand rather than stomach tickle, road bump, and moving object. You may want to find a distraction.

Pressure Points
You may be able to experience effective results by learning about your pressure points and how to use them, especially in the most dizzying of times. Some have even turned to sea bands, a product specially designed to utilize pressure points to help cope with sea sickness

Hydrating with Water or Herbal Tea
Dehydration can be both a cause and a result of certain nauseous symptoms. Staying hydrated may be a major step towards preventing motion sickness. Chamomile tea may also help to settle the stomach, and as a natural sedative may help to ease the anxiety of the mind that may also cotribute to the motion sickness. Peppermint tea is great for a light head too. You may also use peppermint essential oils in aromatherapy.   

Licorice root has been shown in some research to help with motion sickness, you probably won't get what you need from sugary licorice candies, however. Instead you may want to consider investing in licorice tablets, to give you the healthy boost you need.

Making your own tinctures at home is a great way to max out those benefits.

Generally, these will be made with alcohol, which is known for breaking plant material. For this reason, food-grade alcohol can be used in making your own tinctures at home to be enjoyed in small doses.

Tinctures are easy to make but the process requires patience and dedication.
