can ruin a trip or outing very quickly. The best way to avoid this unpleasant
situation is to prepare for it.
1. Drink a cup of ginger, lemon balm, or chamomile tea before the trip.
After the first cup, it is also fine to sip a thermos of these teas periodically
during the trip.
2. Slowly eat a few pieces of crystalline ginger before and every half
hour of the trip, a treat found in all health food stores and many grocery
stores. This works well for big and little kids.
3. Buy a motion sickness or nausea homeopathic combination remedy at a
local health food store before the trip. It will work in a matter of minutes
will be effective in the majority of cases. It should contain some combination
of Cocculus, Tabacum, Nux vomica, Bryonia and Petroleum in homeopathic dosages.
4. There are also acupressure wrist bands available at many pharmacies and
health-food stores that apply pressure at a point roughly 1/6 of the way
up the forearm to the inside of the elbow from the crease of the wrist.
Laterally, the point is midway between your two long bones of your forearm.
Massage or just apply pressure with your index finger for 1-2 minutes to
relieve the motion sickness.
