Motion sickness is the worst — especially when you are traveling. Imagine yourself on a romantic cruise but, instead of enjoying the sunset on the lido deck, you are laying on the bathroom floor, suffering from nausea. While there’s not necessarily a cure for motion sickness, there are ways to prevent it and The New York Times shares tips from Dr. Jennifer Derebery, a physician at the House Clinic in Los Angeles, to help you tackle the problem.
“Motion sickness happens when there is an imbalance between the eyes, inner ears and spinal cord, but fortunately, there are ways to reduce the chances of it hitting you,” Derebery tells The Times.
So what does she suggest?
One way to tackle the sickness after you begin to feel nauseous is to “let your eyes see the movement.”
“The key to recovering from motion sickness within minutes is to look toward the movement that’s happening because doing so will reorient your inner ear,” she tells The New York Times.
