Plane Sickness

Although it carries no serious symptoms, air sickness can be quite an annoying occurrence, especially during longer flights. Nobody wants to go through dizziness, nausea, chills and vomiting on their dream flight.

Fortunately, there are many ways you can reduce the chances of any discomfort.

Causes and Symptoms of Motion Sickness on Planes

Air sickness occurs due to different movement interpretations of various body organs. The inner ear and eyes send conflicting information to your brain and cause it to raise alarm signals. But how does this happen?

Well, the human eye sees a fairly stationary environment and lack of movement even when the plane takes off. However, the inner ear – which contains the vestibular, a human balance mechanism – notices the oscillations and a change in the position of our body in relation to gravity. Therefore, these two opposing signals confuse your brain, creating the feeling of nausea and sickness.

There are many symptoms of air sickness, including:

  • Nausea
  • Sweating
  • Headache
  • Disorientation
  • Loss of balance
  • Fatigue

Even though every person is susceptible to these symptoms, some groups are more vulnerable. New pilots, first-time passengers, children and older people are at a higher risk of experiencing air sickness. Avoiding certain activities before and during the flight could prove helpful.

​Remedies and Preventive Methods

Surprisingly, even some of the most basic activities can induce the nauseating feeling.

The night before your flight, you should focus on:

  • Having a well balanced meal. Eat some bland food without spices or strong flavouring. Never fly on an empty stomach, but be careful not to overeat.
  • Drink a lot of water. Chamomile tea and ginger ale could also help soothe your stomach. Avoid sodas and drinks high in sugar.

On the day of the flight:

  • Pick the right seats. Those closer to the wings and around the middle are going to be more stable than the front row seats.
  • Avoid reading. Constantly moving your eyes from word to word can make the situation even worse. Instead, try to look out of the window and focus your sight on the horizon.
  • Turn up the air vents. Getting in that extra oxygen can make all the difference, especially when you’re in a cramped airplane seat.

How does it work?

What causes motion sickness?

The inner ear which is responsible for balance notices a change in the surroundings such as a boat rocking.

However the eye does not notice any change in the surroundings for example in a boat the eyes do not notice a change in the surroundings because the cabin is rocking with the ocean.

The mismatch between the inner ear and the eyes causes a message to the vomiting centre of the brain to induce vomiting and a message to the gut causing nausea.

How does our treatment prevent motion sickness?

The combination of well researched ingredients prevent the message from the inner ear to the brain which induces vomiting and settles the stomach to prevent nausea.
