Slow Deep Breathing Prevents Motion Sickness

A study from Pennsylvania State University shows that slow, deep breathing can help control motion sickness. Two major organs control balance: your eyes and your inner ear. Motion sickness occurs when your eyes and your balance apparatus in your inner ear don't agree, causing nausea, vomiting, rapid breathing, headache, dizziness, sweating, weakness and inability to concentrate. For example, reading a book tells you that you are still, while being shaken in a boat tells you that you are moving, confusing your brain and making you sick.

Some people can prevent motion sickness by not using their eyes when they are on a boat or plane or by looking at the waves so their eyes agree with their ears telling them that they are moving. This study in Aviation Space and Environmental Medicine shows that controlled slow deep breathing helped to decrease motion sickness symptoms. Sometimes attacks can be prevented by taking 50 mg of over-the-counter Benadryl one hour before getting on a boat or applying a special skin patch containing scopolamine four hours beforehand. Once you suffer a headache, nausea and dizziness, no medication is particularly effective in controlling your symptoms.
