Experiencing motion sickness is an unpleasant thing, and something that all of us could easily do without. But is there a way for motion sickness sufferers to avoid experiencing it, or better methods for dealing with it if it occurs? With a busy holiday travel season coming up, YouTube channel SciShow explains what causes motion sickness, and offers helpful solutions for those of us who suffer from it.
Yep, ginger definitely helps. Mom makes ginger tea before a long trip everytime, and the one time I didn't have it, the sandwiches came out the hard way.
Having to travel across a wavy, up and down ocean jammed in a troopship once upon a time, what saved me was being able to munch on saltine crackers I had "liberated" from the ship's mess. A thousand or so G.I.s all vomiting more or less at the same time was definitely unpleasant, but the crackers seemed to keep my stomach settled. Needless to say, neither the Army nor the merchant marine provided ginger.
