Motion sickness happens when our equilibrium is upset by the motion of a car, plane, or boat. This happens when our eyes adjust to the movements we're seeing but our inner ear does not, causing our sense of stability to be thrown off.
This can cause us to feel nauseous, dizzy, we can sweat, go pale/green and even vomit. That's no fun, especially when we're travelling!
Homeopathy can help to restore this balance and leave you feeling much better. Here are some of the more common remedies that can help with motion sickness:
This is the most common remedy for motion sickness. The person needing this remedy will have dizziness, waves of nausea with belching, and an empty feeling in the stomach with a metallic taste in the mouth.

They feel anxious, dazed and confused.
Motion sickness with great irritability and impatience. There is continual nausea and vomiting which can feel like food poisoning. They produce excessive amounts of saliva and have a hard time vomiting.
