               TO TOP

Basically, the results and effects of seasickness are not very alarming, except for those who have important matters to attend to while aboard a ship. The people who have duties on the ship will have the tendency to not perform their duties well if they get to experience seasickness.

People who experience seasickness are those who are not conditioned to travel by sea or who cannot stand the swaying motion of the boat brought about by the waves. Though, there are others who experience seasickness as soon as they step aboard, even if the ship is not yet moving.

Causes of Seasickness

Generally, the human body conditioned to stay upright by maintaining the center of gravity directly in line with our feet. If motion is applied, the body tends to have visual confusion. Here, seasickness starts.

Moreover, the irregular pressure on the bowels, wherein the diaphragm tends to move along with the movement of the ship, can also cause seasickness.

With the advent of medical advancements, you can cope  with seasickness through medications. These medicines have special components that normalize the condition of the body so as to adapt with the changes in the environment.

Tricks to Deal With it

Aside from medications, there are different ways how to cope  with seasickness. Here’s how:

1. Waves trigger seasickness.

Most experts say that it would be better to focus your sight on the horizon. It would be better not to look at the waves because the motion that it entails will render more confusion on your body’s ability to keep the center of gravity directly above your feet.

2. Adults should be more prepared with medications that will help reduce seasickness.

Studies show that seasickness is more prevalent in adults than children below 12 years old. Particularly, cases of seasickness are higher in females. According to the statistical reports, there are seven cases of seasickness in females to only one in males.

3. When sleeping, you should lie on your backs.

4. People who are prone to seasickness should stay where the fresh air is available.

Indeed, seasickness is not a problem when people know how to cope with it
