Did you know that we have good homeopathic remedies for motion sickness?
Do you have kids that get car sickness or are you dreading a flight or going on a boat ride because of motion sickness?
Motion sickness can be greatly reduced with a few homeopathic remedies such as Cocculus Indicus of Tabacum.
Car sickness is a nuisance since most of us use a car at least once or so a day. Can you imagine having to bring a spare plastic bag with you every time you go on a car trip?
One of my girls tends to suffer from mild carsickness, but she is lucky that her mum (aka me) is a homeopath! She rarely needs any acute carsickness remedies because she is treated all year round!
Motion sickness is caused by repeated movements when we travel that send different signals to the brain from those we are seeing. Generally, the symptoms disappear when the movement stops.
But wouldn’t it be great if you could rely on some natural small little white sugar tasty pills that help to reduce nausea?
I have yet to meet a child who has refused to take a homeopathic remedy! Conversely, mums tell me that their children cry after taking a remedy because they want to have more!
BEST HOMEOPATHIC REMEDIES FOR MOTION SICKNESS. COCCULUS INDICUS AND TABACUM
COCCULUS30 You may be experiencing a lot of dizziness and nausea when watching the car, boat or plane moving.
Feeling as if you were a bit tipsy or intoxicated.
The nausea is worse if you eat or drink, so you will find yourself refusing to put anything in your mouth!
You may need to lay down to feel better.
PETROLEUM30 Dizziness is felt as if you were placed on a swinging object.
A headache felt mainly in the occiput may accompany the dizziness and a feeling as if the brain is wrapped in fog.
One interesting keynote about this remedy is the fact that you may feel better laying down but with your head up.
TABACUM30 This is for dizziness that comes with excessive and copious cold sweat and vomiting, which is worse by having the eyes opened.
You may feel better after vomiting and having some fresh air, so you may want the car window opened or may need to get out of the car for a brief walk. If you are on a boat, you may want to go to the deck to breathe some fresh air.
BANERJI PROTOCOL TIP
For air sickness use:
Sanguinaria 200 every few hours and Pulsatilla 30 every 2 hours if the ears are blocked
NUX VOMICA30 This remedy is good if you are experiencing dizziness with a lot of nausea and you are also experiencing a headache with tension and pain in the forehead with it.
The nausea is characteristic; there is a lot of retching, feeling like vomiting but actually not being sick. The more the retching and the less the vomiting, the more this remedy is indicated. You may find yourself saying, “if only I could vomit”
You also may have a lot of saliva in your mouth while feeling sick and pain or pressure in the stomach from cramps.
One very strong keynote of this remedy is the fact that the person feels worse by any smells so if your child is carsick and you are either smoking or eating in the car, he may tell you to put it away as the smell of it makes him sicker.
