Someone endures a flight on an airplane with ease, someone, on the contrary, experiences severe torment during the air "roll." If you feel motion sickness in your car, you can stop at any time and get some fresh air. On the plane, this option is not possible - so you have to adapt to the discomfort.
Don't get on a plane hungry. In fact, this will not only not help to cope with air sickness, but, on the contrary, will increase the discomfort. On the day of departure, as well as during the flight, lean on protein foods. If your flight is in the morning, do a “carbohydrate hit” on your body at night: eat pasta, porridge, muesli and a cheese sandwich. Avoid black tea, coffee, alcohol, nicotine, fatty and spicy foods.
Have a cup of ginger tea before your flight. Ginger can help relieve nausea without medication.
Take vitamin B1. It helps to get rid of problems with the vestibular apparatus for everyone who suffers from air sickness.
If possible, select a suitable seat on the aircraft. This can be done by contacting the airline representative at the check-in counter. Ask for a seat near the center aisle in the wing area. In this part of the aircraft, the abrupt change in flight altitude is the least noticeable.
Before landing, gently but firmly tighten your wrists with elastic bandages. This will prevent discomfort during air travel. The bandages will be in contact with the specific point on the wrists, which will prevent nausea.
During the flight, do not look out the window and twist your head as little as possible if you know for sure that you will be seasick. Close your eyes, listen to soothing music or an audiobook. Try to relax and distract yourself.
If, despite all the measures taken, you still feel seasick, do the following. For several minutes, use your fingernail to rhythmically press the points under the earlobes.
You can resort to improvised means. Sucking on something sour, such as hard candy or lemon wedges, distracts from the unpleasant sensations. Chewing gum also helps with air sickness symptoms.
If the signs of motion sickness are so severe that none of the above helps, use an anti-motion sickness medication.
