Sea sickness cure

Mental is everything. Though try consulting with your local doctor too

A decent wellspring of pre-cruising guidance is your neighborhood drug specialist.

We always found lying down flat in our cabin works. There have been occasions when our feet and heads have alternatively been hitting the ends of the bed in turn but as long as we are flat we are OK.

I also keep a bag of crystalised ginger in a pocket. I don’t know if it works but it tastes nice!

Grandson is sea sick and his parents bought him special wrists bands for their last trip across the Irish Sea (which can get rough). It may have been psychological but when wearing them he didn’t have any problems…

I have those wristbands, @ESW and though I rarely travel where rough seas are likely, I have worn them when sailing to and from Southampton, and psychological or not, they worked for me, when others around were quite ill.

A good source of pre-sailing advice is your local pharmacist.

Hello @Patientgardener

There are many old wives tales about green apples, ginger etc but to be certain visit the onboard doctor who will give you an injection that will work.

We are going on a cruise which leaves Bristol in Jan and sails across the Bay of Biscay, which may be slightly rough! Any hints on medicines or methods to avoid/cure sea sickness would be appreciated.
