Combating Seasickness

Share on: Share on Google+

Seasickness can put a damper on your trip, so if you think your stomach might be rolling right along with the waves, you’ll want to plan ahead of time.

You may have heard of the old standbys for fighting seasickness: staring at the horizon and getting fresh air. Those can work, but you’re better off preventing seasickness altogether.

Although it may seem like a no-brainer, don’t stuff yourself when you’re on board.

A full stomach, and even spicy foods, can make you prone to seasickness.

Dramamine and other over-the-counter medication can lessen your symptoms, but you have to take it at least an hour ahead of time, if not more.

Another approach that has been getting great reviews is an acupressure wristband, which finds the right pressure points to combat nausea.

The Bio Band costs about $12 and is FDA approved, and the waterproof Psi Band costs about $15 and was actually invented by pregnant women.
