Small tricks to fight against car sickness

Many people suffer from car sickness while driving. Luckily, there are a few little tricks that can help prevent the feeling of nausea in the stomach. 

Generally speaking, sensitive people are best to be kept in the front passenger seat. You should never read maps or your cellphone while driving, as many feel worse when they are not looking in the direction of travel. 


On curves the information provided to the eye is mixed up with fluctuations in the brain, which are sensed by the equilibrium organ in the inner ear. Chewing gum is a helpful tip against nausea. Alternatively, you can nibble on apples or carrots. In addition, take many breaks in the fresh air. If all of this does not help there are also non-prescription medications for nausea in every pharmacy. Be sure to use non-drowsy while driving. 

Lastly of course, the driver can make a significant contribution to the well-being of their passengers by avoiding sudden lane changes, high accelerating and sharp braking.
