Homeopathic Remedies for Travel/Motion Sickness

 

Travel/Motion sickness, whether from car, boat or air travel, is a most unpleasant experience, especially for small children.  There certainly is no fun in travelling with children or adults that are struggling with Travel/Motion Sickness.

Motion sickness is caused by repeated movements when we travel that send different signals to the brain from those we are seeing.  Generally, the symptoms stop once the movement stops, however, they may linger for a while, until the body re-adjusts.

Below are some remedies that will help.

Travel/Motion Sickness

ARSENICUM ALBUM 30c

Nausea and vomiting with a burning sensation in the throat or stomach.  Very anxious, restless people.  The nausea is made worse by the sight and smell of good but also odours of any kind.  May desire frequent sips of warm water.

NUX VOMICA 30c

Queasy feeling with headache at back of head or over one eye.  Food, tobacco or coffee aggravates.  Painful gagging and retching, feels chilly and is likely constipated.

IPECAC 30c

This remedy can help relieve nausea and vomiting with increased salivation.  Vomiting does not bring relief.  Nothing brings relief.  Stomach will feel cold and empty with bloating and belching.

COCCULUS 30c

There maybe lots of dizziness and nausea, feeling as if tipsy or intoxicated.  The nausea is worse if you eat or drink, you will find yourself refusing to put anything in your mouth.  You may need to lay down to feel better.  Increased saliva is accompanied by feeling worn out.

PETROLEUM 30c

Dizziness as if placed on a swinging object.

A headache felt mainly in the occiput may accompany the dizziness and a feeling as if the brain in wrapped in fog.Homeopathic Remedies for Travel/Motion Sickness

Again, you may feel better for laying down but with your head raised.

TABACUM 30c

This is for dizziness that comes with excessive and copious cold sweat and vomiting, which is worse by having eyes opened.

You may feel better after vomiting and having some fresh air, if in a car open the window, or stop and have a brief walk, if on a boat you may want to go up on deck to breathe in some fresh air.

This remedy is good if you are experiencing dizziness with a lot of nausea and you are also experiencing a headache with tension and pain in the forehead, as if band around head.

There is a lot of retching, feeling like vomiting but actually not being sick.  The more the retching and the less the vomiting, the more this remedy is indicated.  You may find yourself saying “if only I could vomit”.

You may have increased saliva with pain and or pressure in the stomach.

The person needing this remedy will be very sensitive to smells of all kinds.

 

 

Dosage: These remedies can be repeated as often as needed, so hourly, every 30 mins or every 10 mins as the sufferer requires.  As always if one remedy does not bring relief after a few doses it’s not the right one, so look to switch to another.

 

Now here is the thing…….  Do we want to wait until we are having these symptoms to respond with a remedy, well in Homeopathy the answer is yes we should, so that we can match the remedy to the symptoms being experienced but for this condition, we are going to bend the rules a bit 🙂

 

To give the best chance of prevention of Travel/Motion sickness try this combination:

COCCULUS 30c/PETROLEUM 30c/TABACUM 30c *

This combination can be given once an hour for 3 hours prior to travel.

It can then be repeated as often as is needed, hourly, every 30 minutes, every 10 minutes.

Option to pop into a bottle of water and have the sufferer sip the water if they can.

 

 

Tissue Salts for Travel Sickness

These are a great support to give alongside the most indicated remedy to support the digestive and nervous systems.

Combination Mix –  Kali Phos 6x, Nat Mur 6x, Nat Phos 6x, Nat Sulph 6x  

Dose:  Give every 3 times during the day of travel.

 

I hope this has been helpful and will enable you and your family to enjoy your travels, sickness free.
