Acupressure For Motion Sickness

by Ken

What is the best way to prevent motion sickness?

My wife needs prevention for flying, but will be in her 3rd trimester and has to be careful.

Matthew's reply: Hi Ken, to ease and prevent motion sickness she should try acupressure. Click the link and see the first point, which has various uses including for nausea and vomiting. Finger pressure works well and you can also buy motion sickness bands or sea sickness bands that do the same thing. Google "motion sickness band" for more on this option.

Any questions or comments about motion sickness and acupressure just post below.

All the best,

Matthew

P.S. Herbal medicine may also help. As I mentioned to you in my reply to your other posting, Korean traditional medicine is along the same lines as Chinese medicine. It may be a good idea to consult a herbalist in Sth Korea before your trip.

Also, ginger is a well known remedy for motion sickness and morning sickness. Ginger tablets are available and can be taken prior to and during your flight. Or a thin slice of fresh ginger can be placed on the tongue before and during the flight.
