Blue Traveler

Manage your motion sickness

(HealthDayNews) -- According to the American Academy of Otolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery, if you feel nauseated and dizzy when traveling by car, boat, or plane, you can ease your queasiness by riding where your eyes will see the same motion that your body and inner ears feel.

For example, ride shotgun in cars and watch the distant scenery; look at the horizon from a ship's deck; grab a window seat on airplanes and look outside.

You should also avoid:

  • Reading while traveling and sitting in a backward-facing seat.
  • Talking to fellow sufferers when you're feeling lousy.
  • Strong smells and spicy or greasy foods just before and during your journey.
