When traveling through airplane, boat or car some people experience nausea, vomiting, sweating, pallor, dizziness or even vomiting,

Our eyes and inner ear work closely together to give us a sense of stability. Motion can disturb this equilibrium and hence lead to motion sickness.

Motion sickness happens due to the disturbance in the balance mechanism of the eyes and the inner ear which sends signals to the brain to interpret the outside environment.

The symptoms first start by creating an uneasy feeling in the abdomen and chest. A person then breaks in sweat and have a feeling to throw out.

Motion sickness is common with children and women but can happen to anyone.

Though anyone can face this condition occasionally, some may experience frequent episodes of such symptoms and may require treatment.

What Causes Motion Sickness?

The vestibular system comprises of the inner ear, semicircular canals and two sacs saccule and utricle.

This system collectively helps send information/signals to the brain as to what is going around.

When your brain gets mixed signals from eyes, inner ears and muscles, it may not be able to interpret the outside environment.

As a result motion sickness is caused.

If you have had the symptoms of motion sickness before, we recommend you to have a homeopathic treatment where the suitable remedies will prepare you well in advance to face such journey in future.

This means you can instead enjoy your journey without worrying about the motion sickness symptoms.
