    In addition to herbal treatment, here are a few more things you can do to minimize your chances of experiencing motion sickness.

  • Avoid alcohol, both before and during a trip.
  • If you are travelling by boat, stay in the middle of the boat and on the upper deck, if there is one.
  • If you’re in small stature, sit on a cushion so you can see straight ahead and focus on distant points.
  • Don’t sit in a seat that faces backwards.
  • Wear headphones and listen to soothing music.
  • Don’t take nutritional supplements on an empty stomach; they can cause nausea. Some prescription drugs also need to be taken with food; check the label carefully.
  • Avoid reading or other activities that cause you to put your head down. Likewise, don’t move your head round to converse.
  • Try an acupressure wristband, available in marine and travel shops. These devices use a trigger point in the wrist to calm nausea.
  • Avoid heavy meals with a high fat content, but don’t travel on an empty stomach either.
  • When booking a flight, reserve the low fat, vegetarian, low sodium, kosher or diabetic meal. Or skip the airline food and bring your own biscuits, melba toast, crystallized ginger or bananas. The goal is to avoid stomach- upsetting fats, but still have something to eat that easy on the digestion.
  • Keep your area well ventilated; overly warm or stuff conditions aggravate nausea.
