Combating travel sickness: This really helps against motion sickness

The anticipation of the holiday is great, but the fear of dizziness, nausea & vomiting even greater? It doesn't have to be ➤ Stop to travel sickness

The tension is rising. Only a few minutes left until departure. The bags are packed, the travel tickets are already there, the sunglasses are on the nose. Now the most beautiful time of the year can begin. Holidays are knocking at the door. If only it were already with us. Because to reach it and let the sun shine on our bellies on the beach, we first have to get on a plane, a ship or at least a car. Easier said than done for all people, who suffer from travel sickness. Because just one moment on a winding road, a bumpy wave or an unexpected air pocket can turn our stomach and make the rest of the journey an ordeal - dizziness, nausea and vomiting are then the result. But fortunately we know a solution for this! 

Causes and symptoms of travel sickness

Travel sickness can occur in all means of transport (such as bus, boat, car, train, plane). Although it mainly manifests itself in gastrointestinal complaints, its point of origin is found in the brain. When travelling, different sensory impressions are perceived here: The eyes perceive only little movement, but the organ of equilibrium in the inner ear registers intense movements. The brain cannot understand this discrepancy, gets under stress and releases messenger substances (such as histamine) which stimulate the vomiting centre. The result is then:

  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Dizziness
  • Sweating
  • Headache
  • Racing pulse

 

Diagnosis of kinetosis: What helps with travel illnesses

Since motion sickness originates in the brain, distraction is the best medicine. For example, if you fall asleep before it sets in, you have the best chance of surviving the journey unscathed. If this does not work, you should try to distract yourself with music, radio plays or conversations, but never by reading, as this only encourages the confusion between body and eye. Instead, it is better to look outside at a fixed point, breathe in fresh air if possible and simulate chewing movements to alleviate the stomach's overreaction. Other tips include drinking enough, avoiding alcohol and cigarettes and eating only light meals beforehand - but those who actually suffer from severe travel sickness know that these home remedies may be enough for journeys to the next city, but not to the next country. If you are highly susceptible, we therefore advise you to take more effective measures and fight travel sickness with these medicines:

Vomex A: This medicine can simply be taken as a syrup, suppository or lozenges about 30 minutes before travelling. The dimenhydrinate contained in it blocks the histamine receptors in the brain and thus prevents nausea. The journey can then be enjoyed for up to six hours without any nausea or stomach rumbling.

Superpep: These particularly practical chewing gums for on the go can be used preventively or acutely for or acutely for mild travel sickness. They are H1- antihistamines, which are particularly well tolerated thanks to their low-dose active ingredient and are and are suitable for children from the age of six.

Zintona: This natural preparation relies on the positive effect of ginger on nausea and vomiting. and vomiting. As a side-effect free and herbal product, these capsules are a good a good alternative to conventional medicines.

Nausyn: These tablets can regulate the hypersensitive interplay between conscious sensory-nervous sensory-nervous processes and unconscious metabolic processes. The should therefore be taken two to three days before travelling.
