Why do people get sick in transport?
Do you know why you suffer from motion sickness? Why do you feel nauseous every time you travel for more than a few minutes? If you think about it, it's pretty obvious. When a person walks, their eyes and body send the same message. It all happens in the inner ear, in the vestibular system. This sensory organ manages the balanceThe brain receives information from the body's movement and transmits it to the nervous system. At the same time, the brain also receives the message delivered by the eyes. The person moves, the brain sees and feels it, the message is coherent.
In contrast, when travelling by transport, whether by train, car, plane or boat, the brain is faced with an information conflict. While the eyes signal movement and vibrations are felt, the body does not move. The messages sent are not coherent, the body fails to adapt to the movement. The effects felt are similar to those caused by intoxication, so the brain reacts as if it were facing a poison, this is called kinetosis.
This is why transport can be so complicated for some people.
What are the symptoms of motion sickness?
Perceived inconsistency with this sensory conflict pushes the brain to defend itself. It therefore triggers the response that it would for food poisoning.
These are the main symptoms caused by seasickness, motion sickness or airsickness:
- Cold Sweats
All of these symptoms are directly related to movement and therefore do not represent a direct risk of complication. However, it is essential to maintain good hydrationThis is true in all contexts. Stopping movement altogether should stop the symptoms, although they may persist for a few hours. Again, the priority is to avoid dehydration.
When travelling at sea, the body gets used to the swell after a few days. To avoid losing precious holiday days, you can also choose natural solutions for motion sickness.
