In the language of medicine, known as motion sickness sikcness. In some individuals, for unknown reasons, very sensitive to certain movements that activate the vestibular system (balance center in the inner ear) and cause symptoms of dizziness (dizziness) and nausea. According to Dr. Margareta Komalasari, SP.A, motion sickness occurs when the vestibular system is impaired. Disruption of the balance centers in the inner ear will stimulate the production of histamine substances that will stimulate the brain, giving rise to reactions of nausea or vomiting.
Here are some tips to overcome motion sickness:1. Choose the right positionIf the ship ride, choose a cabin in the middle because at this point at least felt the ship shake. If flying, ask for seats near the front edge of the wing. If you take the train, sit near the window and facing forward. If using a car or bus, you should sit in the front near the driver.2. Sit with a relaxed and not too tallKeep glued to the position of the eye can see about 45 degrees above the horizon line. In sitting, do not try too much head shaking and sedapatnya made tercekap the back of the chair.3. Fill your belly before travelingDo not leave an empty stomach while traveling. For an empty stomach will produce gastric acids in excessive amounts that would irritate the stomach and stimulates reflex nausea, which can ultimately affect vomiting. But remember, do not overeat. Reduce high fat foods, limit a drink, juice, including fruits, before departure. Because this will also trigger motion sickness.4. Benefits of Ginger to reduce nauseaThe researchers in the Digestive Disease Week meeting stated ginger proved highly effective in reducing the nausea due to motion sickness. How: on the way, drink the infusion of 1 / 2 gram of powdered ginger or 1 / 2 teaspoon fresh ginger every 15 minutes for 1 hour before travel. Continue if in the course of visible symptoms of illness. Chewing ginger can also be induced stimulation of saliva and digestive juices, it also reduces nausea and vomiting. In the toddler should be smeared on their abdomen grated ginger. Or by bringing the sweet potatoes are not peeled raw or boiled or cooked for lunch on that journey.5. Bring the fruit as stock in transitFruits provide enough water bidder thirst, a glut of fiber, fruit sugar as energy providers as well as relieving headaches due to starvation, and a number of nutritional antioxidants, which can reduce the appearance of fatigue. Choose fruit that is practical and not bother to eat it like apples, oranges, grapes, pears, and bananas. Citrus aroma and flavor is quite helpful and re-invigorating the body when the nausea started to attack. Try not to buy food and drinks on the sidewalk. Therefore, the quality of food and beverages are not necessarily well preserved because it is always exposed to hot sun.6.Mengiikuti motion of the car with easePrepare the body to accept the style and turn right to the left and flopping in the cab of the vehicle so that the body was not surprised. Follow the turning motion of the car with ease. During the trip try to pay attention to the road ahead. Concentrate far forward toward the scene or object that is not moving. Do not get used to look left and right to see the sights as this will trigger motion sickness. Do not close my eyes and forced myself to sleep unless it is absolutely sleepy.7. Do not readReading it can eliminate boredom during a long journey, but this activity can actually make us nauseous because we have to fix the eye. The eyes are also something to do with balance.8.Mengepalkan fingers and toesIf the nausea began to emerge, eat fruit that you bring. If nausea does not subside, clench and relax your fingers and your feet repeatedly to increase blood circulation. To get rid of mild dizziness, massage fingers and the palm of your hand.9. Breathe fresh air outside the carOpen the car windows to circulate fresh air into the cabin. If allergic to smells, like perfume or AC car, then turn off the AC and open the window of your car's vehicle so that fresh air into the car.10. If more severe nauseapull over and stop for a moment. Exit and take a walk around the car to neutralize the accumulated effects of vibration nuisance. The action was very effective in preventing nausea or a feeling of wanting to vomit, especially for children. But this can only be done if you drive a private car.11. Anti Drinking Drunk / MaagWhen physically too tired, you should take anti-vomiting medications / anti-hangover (sleep) on the trip or before setting off. These drugs work for eight hours. Some drugs also need to be prepared before and during the trip, such as antidiarrheal medication, antimuntah drugs, heartburn medications, and migraine headaches. These drugs are very helpful as a first-aid medicine. Especially for those who have ulcer disease, should consumeulcer drug that type of gastric acid suppressors. Generally, these drugsworked for 12-24 hours.12. Often berisitirahat momentDuring the trip, do not hesitate to use the rest to be able to do little exercise and stretch out. Take advantage of the time are also here to pee aka urine. Do not hold urine because it can result in urinary tract infections.
13. For those who travel by public transportIf you ride public transport try to not put the whole carry-on luggage. Some can be placed on the floor of the car cabin to the load distribution front and rear wheels do not really changed. Passenger cars are designed so that the front wheels receive a 60% weight of the car and the rear wheels 40%. When heavy items are placed in the trunk, the front-rear weight distribution is no longer 60-40. These vibrations disturb the character of the car. In these circumstances, the most uncomfortable speed is at about 40 km / hour. Leisure precisely obtained at relatively high speeds are rarely achieved. On the load distribution 60-40 most uncomfortable speed is generally low (below 12 km / h).
14. For those who travel by private carWhen modifying the suspension system, it could still choose a new spring with spring stiffness constant is relatively similar to the old spring which is the result of design optimization. As a benchmark, a comfortable ride is usually obtained if the deflection of the spring-forward about 20 - 30 cm, or 30% larger than the deflection of the rear springs.Noting the suspension seat is also important. Seats usually consist of steel springs, foam rubber, and foam plastic. Spring is elastic enough to give vibration frequencies from 2.3 to 2.8 cps, but quite convenient if a large pothole. Springs are more rigid able to isolate the vibration is only about 1.5 cps, but less comfortable when the car through a large hole for holding the steering wheel disturbing and difficult to give a precise pressure on the pedals.The important thing is driving in comfort. Cars do not gassed, brakes, suddenly deflected because these are things that are most influential in the "shuffle" man in the car cabin. In addition to reducing car sick, driving with a convenient also fuel efficient, cheap, safe, and environmentally friendly.15.
