What is good for motion sickness?
Motion sickness is due to the physiological deviation from "normal" conditionsthe body and brain are wired for. Susceptibility varies. Most agree that youwant to eat something prior to flying. Empty stomach = no breakfast = nonutrition = makes it worse.But there are several universal factors such as hydration, no alcoholconsumption prior to flying, and certain physical positions to avoid. Turningyour head to get something in the back of the airplane at the same time thepilot enters into a turn is one example of what NOT to do.There is no "one stop" shop quick cure. Some things help certain people alittle. Ginger has been found to have the best results with fewest side effects incounteracting motion sickness. Crackers work for others.The military teaches one universal method: flight time. The more time in theair, the more time your body rewires itself to be less sensitive to it.You're not aircrew until you puke. Don't let it discourage you. Puke and getback up in the air!
