The makers of Zentrip have sifted through their user and physician research surveys and compiled the best ways to beat seasickness and other forms of motion-sickness before it strikes.
Seasickness is very common and very treatable. But, it can afflict a toll on those who have it through its sensations of dizziness, vomiting, sweating and the general facial appearance of pallor (not the kind that’s easily disguised with makeup).
Before learning the tips, you should know the cause of seasickness: it’s generally thought to be an imbalance in the inner ear, creating an internal battle to keep one’s balance and spatial orientation in light of the fact it does not match what our sensory system is telling us.
In a way, seasickness can easily be triggered when your eyes focus on a stationary page while your body continues to register the movements of the vessel. This confuses the brain and sets off “alarms” that may result in dizziness or other symptoms of seasickness.
Any of these tips can work alone or in tandem with an inexpensive over-the-counter medication that contains meclizine which blocks a chemical messenger to the brain. It is also an antiemetic, helping to prevent or lessen the effects of all the uncomfortable sensations before or after they strike.
1. Eat light before going aboard. Avoid greasy and acidic foods that can come back to haunt you if you become seasick. Light, salty crackers, are good snacks. Once aboard, try to avoid food odors if you feel the effects of seasickness.
2. Avoid alcohol but drink plenty of water. Keep hydrated.
3. Get plenty of fresh air but avoid irritating gasoline and diesel fumes. If you do get dizzy when down below, get outdoors.
4. Try to stay in the middle of the boat, amidships, since there is less lurching. Often, the lower decks of a ship are calmer, with less horizontal and vertical motion, both contributors to the turbulence that precipitates seasickness.
5. If you have suffered a bout of seasickness, then do not read. Leave the book at home or in the cabin.
6. Stay away from folks who are sick since it could trigger a sympathetic response in you the same way someone coughing in a theatre can incite others to cough.
7. When on deck, look off to the distance, focusing on the horizon a point away from the rocky boat or ship you are on in order to keep from getting dizzy. Avoid looking at fast-moving scenery, such as boats passing quickly.
8. Try facing forward. This way, the forward motion of your body will closely match what you see.
Zentrip is a fast-dissolving, fast-acting, citrus-flavored meclizine hydrochloride formula in a thin-strip. Without the need for water, the strip dissolves on the tongue in 15-seconds to prevent or relieve the severity of motion sickness.
