This is a form of motion sickness caused by erratic stimulation
to the brain from the sensory receptors. This is prompted by constantly
changing movement. Mal de Mer is a rather pleasant and unassuming
French term for the debilitating effect motion sickness may have
on your body.
Symptoms generally consist of dizziness, fatigue, and nausea, which
may progress to vomiting.
Motion sickness is a very common disturbance of the inner ear that
is caused by repeated motion such as from the swell of the sea,
the movement of a car, the motion of a plane in turbulent air, etc.
In the inner ear (which is also called the labyrinth), motion sickness
affects the sense of balance and equilibrium and, hence, the sense
of spatial orientation.
Homeopathic Remedies & Homeopathy Treatment for SEA
SICKNESS , Motion Sickness
This is by all odds the most frequently indicated remedy in seasickness.
Dr. Bayes says it is the only medicine that he found to be of any
use; he used the 3d potency. Hughes also praises it in this affection
and the writer has used it with success. The special symptoms are
nausea, which is accompanied by vertigo, the vertigo coming on especially
when the a patient raises his eyes. These symptoms are worse from
motion or riding; there is rather a persistent nausea and qualmishness
than vomiting, although bilious vomiting also occurs. It undoubtedly
has prophylactic powers and may be taken night and morning for a
week or two before sailing.
This is perhaps one of the oldest homoeopathic remedies in seasickness.
Great nausea is one of its characteristic symptoms; it is provoked
by motion, change of posture and of posture and especially from
riding in a carriage, on the cars, or on a boat. This nausea is
accompanied by vertigo, with a tendency to faint.
This remedy has gained quite a reputation for the cure of seasickness.
There are no special indications for its use, except that it has
vomiting of cerebral origin. It should never be given lower than
the 6x potency Theridion has proved useful in seasickness in nervous
women; they shut their eyes to get rid of the motion of the vessel
and grow deathly sick. Staphisagria has also attained some success
in the treatment of seasickness. Glonoine is the remedy especially
when there is giddiness, warm sickening sensation in the chest and
stomach and a faint feeling. Tabacum produces an astonishing resemblance
to seasickness and car sickness and car sickness, and in the higher
potencies is sometimes very efficacious.
