How to pump the vestibular apparatus
Categories: Health and MedicinePictolic
The scientific name for motion sickness is kinetosis, which means motion sickness. For the first time, mankind encountered this unpleasant phenomenon at the beginning of the era of sea travel. Hence the entrenched name - "seasickness". In the Middle Ages, sailors simply had to get used to these terrible sensations throughout their lives. Now we have learned how to fight the disease, but we began to experience its symptoms in any other transport. Car, bus, train, plane - that is, any vehicle that creates monotonous vibrations.
There are quite a lot of people who are prone to this unpleasant ailment, and they extremely negatively endure any transport movements. Even driving a car can cause nausea and dizziness. Trying to read a card or SMS on the go is tantamount to disaster. And any winding road will turn into real torments of hell. But not everything is so bad - there are several working ways to deal with this scourge once and for all. But first, let's understand why this happens.

1. Where motion sickness comes from
All this happens because the vestibular apparatus, which reports the position of the body in space, confuses our brain, which perceives visual signals, and they begin to work not synchronously, but each on its own.
It is this contradiction that causes sensations of motion sickness, including all derivative consequences that are sad for us. Fortunately, it is quite possible to fight it - at one time such great people as Julius Caesar, Charles Darwin and even Admiral Nelson successfully fought and defeated it. We do not know exactly what means they used, but we are well aware that it can help you.
It is enough to make just a few fairly simple movements so that the nauseating dizziness decreases several times. First, press your head against the back of the seat so that it moves as little as possible. Secondly, focus on your own breathing - count the number of breaths and try not to think about anything else.
Oddly enough, your favorite music also helps with seasickness. The fact is that the brain is too busy getting pleasure from listening - there are no resources left for unpleasant sensations. So, when you go sailing or traveling by car, don't forget to take your player with you.
Our body is able to adapt to any conditions. Even if it seems to you that seasickness will haunt you forever - do not be discouraged. This is wrong. The more trips on the "unpleasant" mode of transport you make, the sooner the vestibular apparatus will return to normal and adapt to new conditions. There are only 5% of people in the world who cannot get used to enduring the roll: your chances of becoming a sea wolf are very high.
A group of antihistamines is actively used to treat motion sickness. They suppress nausea and significantly increase the rate of adaptation of the body to new conditions.
The so-called homeopathic remedies are very popular. They work only due to the placebo effect, as they do not contain any active ingredient. Are you going on a long voyage? Read some rave reviews about these drugs, take one, and enjoy the brain's magical ability to turn wishful thinking into reality.
7. Acupuncture bracelet
These mysterious yet powerful devices originated in China, the birthplace of acupuncture medicine. They really help, but the result should not be expected immediately. Forty minutes may pass before the start of the bracelet's action - well, all that remains is to clench your teeth tighter and try to look at one point.
Gel patches can also play a positive role. The gel contained in the patch usually consists of various extracts of ginger and mint. These substances have a very beneficial effect on the nervous system, providing a calming effect in general.
