Tips to Prevent Motion Sickness
30 July 2017
As part of its awareness campaign dubbed: “#سافر_بصحة” – which means "Healthy Travel", the Ministry of Health (MOH) underlined the importance of consulting a doctor if motion sickness symptoms continue after arrival of travelers to their destinations, pointing out that children and pregnant women are most vulnerable.
 Motion sickness is a condition in which a disagreement exists between visually perceived movement and the inner ear's sense of movement. The condition is associated with different means of transportation.
Through an awareness infographic published on its Twitter's page, MOH indicated that symptoms of motion sickness include vomiting, nausea, dizziness and pale skin.
According to the MOH, motion sickness can be prevented by using a pillow or headrest to help keep one’s head as still as possible, gazing towards the horizon, opening windows to get fresh air, relaxing while focusing on breathing, avoiding heavy meals before travelling and drinking plenty of water.
