How To Prevent Seasickness! | ⛵ Sailing Britaly ⛵

Do you want to know the simplest way to prevent seasickness? Watch this video to see a very simple trick that prevents you or your loved ones from feeling sick whilst on a boat. Seasickness is caused by conflicting signals in your brain caused by the difference in what you see with your eyes, and the movement felt by your inner ears. This very simple technique encourages your brain to ignore the information being sent to it by your inner ears, and as a result you don't feel seasick! You can buy cheap earplugs from Amazon here: http://fave.co/2x0ZCY5 ⛵ Sailing Britaly ⛵ brings you the sailing shenanigans of Chris (British) and Rossella (Italian), as we sail our 30ft sloop. We make sailing vlogs of our cruising adventures and share any tips and tricks we can along the way. After all, sailors are one big family!

Wow does this really work? I am working as a musician on a big boat and I have been having problems with being sick 😞
Sailing Britaly (1 месяц назад)
Hi there, yes it works for many people. Try it and let us know how you get on. Fair winds! Chris, Rossella & Emma 😊
Mike Clifford (1 месяц назад)
I’ll definitely try this!! I can’t seem to fix my problem with sea sickness. Taken Dramamine ect but still get sick. The patch behind the ear sent me into a dizzy state. Was gonna try anti Nausea medicine prescription or the wrist band. But I’ll try this first. So frustrated planning a whole fishing day on my boat then coming in after a couple hours because I’m sick. I’m a grown outdoorsman and I’m the only puking on the boat. I have to choose the right day to go out and fish certain areas that are calmer.
Sailing Britaly (1 месяц назад)
Hi Mike, those patches can affect people very badly and sometimes the effects of those are almost as bad as seasickness itself (I've seen it offshore) Good luck with this and report back to tell us how you get on with this, Fair winds, Chris 👍
Thiam Hin Saw (2 месяца назад)
Thanks for the excellent tip Chris. Will it work the same if I have 1 earphone in my ear listening to music from my device?
Sailing Britaly (1 месяц назад)
Hi there, that is an interesting question that I don't know the answer to. Give it a try and let us know if it helps! Fair winds, Chris, Rossella & Emma 😊

Absolutely fool proof way to stop sea sickness is to sit under a tree. It's worked for me EVERY time! x

Lots of positive comments from people who planned to try it. Couldn't find a user review. Purely from a Data aspect of course. Now me. I really need this to work. xxx
Margaret Reaves (7 месяцев назад)
Thanks for this tip and is there a form of severe seasickness that you can help with? I wasn't aware I had this problem unfortunately until it was to late. -_- Anyway 2 others on the boat were seasick. One laid down and took a rest the other ate a little something. I was shocked with both of them because there was no doing either of these things with me. I constantly threw up until there was only stomach bile left. After throwing that up I dry heaved the rest of the time(6 hours maybe). People kept trying to get me to eat saltines and ginger ale but were not understanding the fact that my stomach kept contracting and it wasn't possible. I think my seasickness goes beyond others and they don't seem to understand this. Any advice will be greatly appreciated guys! D:
Andrea Salvetiu (5 месяцев назад)
I have this exact issue. Just recently came back from a fishing trip. I had a prescription patch, sea bands, and took Dramamine and still got sick. It's so frustrating and I don't know what else I can do.

was out in the solent sailing recently with an ear infection, in one ear. had the same effect as your ear plug trick. was able to read the newspaper without feeling queezey. usually when I go ashore to the toilet or shower cubicle everything is swaying about up to 48hrs after, no such problems with an ear infection. not suggesting you start poking things in your ears or swimming too deep in dirty water, but if you haven't packed your ear plugs it's another option. usually use Biodramina tablets though, may need prescription.

Ginger! Always have real ginger on board. Earplug in ear is prevention. Garlic is the cure.
Sailing Britaly (11 месяцев назад)
If only somebody would invent ginger and garlic scented earplugs!... 😂 Fair winds, Chris & Rossella 👍
Melanie & Jazz (1 год назад)
Oh my gosh... really?!? I paid $90 for my patches and I could have used an ear plug? I have packets of those in my bedside table (yup husbands a snorer). Oh well, I'll try the ear plug and keep the patches for backup. Thanks for the great tip. It's so inexpensive. Gonna share it for sure. Thanks again Chris 👍
Sailing Britaly (1 год назад)
Hi Melanie, yes it really works! THe good thing about Harish's snoring is that you'll always remember to take earplugs with you when you go to the boat 😉 Fair winds! Chris & Rossella 👍

Melinda Spinler (1 год назад)
Will give this a try as well. We keep motion relief bands on board for those in need. They will even stop a bout of illness after it's started. It's weird to get used to the slight electrical impluse but since it works those in need welcome the sensation.
Su Z (3 месяца назад)
A friend of ours uses the band. Works for her.

How wonderful! The babe is here. Take care of your ladies and enjoy this special time. Look forward to the introduction of babies aboard.

We are going sailing for a few days in the Azores and I'm going to bring some ear plugs, and give it a try. On a side note when my wife gets sea sick she uses Motioneaze, we buy it at West Marine. . It saved a lot of sailing days. Thanks
Sailing Britaly (1 год назад)
Hi there, thank you for watching and commenting. Enjoy your trip to the Azores and let us know how you get on with the earplug trick. 😊 Fair winds, Chris & Rossella 👍

As others may have commented, your cochlea is where your body converts sound to nerve impulses to the brain. Balance and movement is sensed by the semi-circular canals, not the cochlea. Otherwise, fascinating way to prevent seasickness. I'll keep it in mind.
Sailing Britaly (1 год назад)
Hi Mike, you are correct that it is indeed the semi-circular canals and otoliths which send impulses to the brain regarding orientation. I should have continued to use the term 'inner ear' so that the video would have been 100% correct. In my defence though, having a single earplug inserted does not have any effect whatsoever on the signals produced by the semi-circular canals or otoliths - it only has an effect on the impulses being sent to the brain by the cochlea (the sound in that ear is muffled compared to the other ear). The brain presumes a damaged inner ear 'assembly' 😂 and ignores all signals being sent from the inner ear. The main point though is that this trick can help people feel seasick! Thank you for watching and commenting. Fair winds! Chris (& Rossella) 👍
George Canakis (1 год назад)
It works great for me Great video also if you eat a plain bagel toasted well done helps a lot. Cheers.😀

Hi George, we are very glad this works for you 😊 Thanks for the bagel tip. Fair winds! Chris, Rossella & baby Emma 👍

I get horrible motion sickness and for years have been using chewy ginger candies as well as chunks of candied ginger from the market. More recently the herb craze has made ginger capsules available. When I leave for the boat I down two caps with 16oz water. I bring ginger beer (no alcohol) answer sip on that if things get funny. I also bring th various ginger remedies with me. It's what has enabled me to go out in weather much worse than I ever should have been in!
Sailing Britaly (1 год назад)
Hi Mike, thank you for watching and commenting. We've hear quite a few people recommending Ginger so that sounds like a great tip. Thanks for sharing! Fair winds, Chris & Rossella 👍
Sli Fauxe (1 год назад)
Wow, thats brilliant! Ive been looking at tricks etc for the gf to make sailing more... Pleasurable so perhaps someday the live-aboard idea wont be too bad. Lol cause id hate to have to live-aboard without her... But im sure id get used to it. Lol
Allen Shisler (1 год назад)
Also drink ginger ale.
Melanie & Jazz (1 год назад)
Nice one. Gonna try this too 👍
Sailing Britaly (1 год назад)
Hi Allen, we've heard that ginger can help too. Ginger ale, ginger tea etc. Fair winds, Chris & Rossella 👍

The Florida solution is to smoke a joint. No more nausea. The earplugs are cheaper though. :)
Sailing Britaly (1 год назад)
Isn't it dangerous to smoke earplugs? 😂
Brian Starr (1 год назад)
Would this perhaps mean that people who are deaf would not suffer from seasickness?
Sailing Britaly (1 год назад)
Hi there, I'm no expert, but don't think that would be the case: seasickness is caused by the signals being sent by the inner (the vestibular system) to the brain, not matching with the information being sent by the eyes. This trick works because the brain senses that there is something wrong with one of the ears and so is more inclined to ignore signals being sent to it by the inner ear in question. If a deaf person inserts an earplug into one ear then I don't think the brain would have reason to change any of its calculations. You do pose an interesting question though... Do blind people get seasick?... Fair winds, Chris (& Rossella) 👍
Norman Boyes (1 год назад)
The only sure way to avoid sea sicknesses is to sit under a tree.
Sailing Britaly (1 год назад)
Or to be really sure: hug a tree whilst wearing one earplug! 😂
SY Tiki (1 год назад)
This is definitely good tip but Oh I wish! Sailed for over 10 years and lived aboard for 6 and tried everything including a version of this - somewhere recommended similar using headphones in one or both ears listening to music/audio. The science seems sound and I know for some it works but for me I am doomed to be green. Hey I get carsick even when I am the DRIVER on windy roads 🤢
Sailing Britaly (1 год назад)
Hi there, thanks for watching and commenting. Sorry to hear that you suffer so badly from motion sickness. It might be worth another try wiith one earplug put really deeply inside your ear so your brain thinks there's a problem with your inner ear. If it does work you might even be able to use it on your car journeys! If it doesn't work then you've lost nothing... Fair winds, Chris & Rossella

If you do happen to get seasick, ginger candy or pickled ginger really helps with the nausea.
Sailing Britaly (1 год назад)
+Vaughn Herren Hi there, thanks for the comment. We have heard of ginger tea being helpful (also for nausea during pregnancy) so your suggestions make sense. Fair winds, Chris & Rossella 👍
Victor Raymond (1 год назад)
Wow, can't wait to try it tomorrow on my wife who suffers from this affliction. We take all sorts of ginger concoctions which seems to help a bit if started early. Thanks again.
Sailing Britaly (1 год назад)
Hi Victor, we're glad it was hepful for you. One thing to check is that your wife had the earplug in really deep into her ear - Rossella had a tendency to put them just into the outermost part of the ear but that didn't work, the earplug has to be rolled between your fingers so it becomes very thin and then pushed right inside the ear canal. After what I have read on the comments here, it may also be worth trying the earplug in the other ear. The seas you were certainly a good testing ground anyway! Fair winds, Chris & Rossella 👍
Victor Raymond (1 год назад)
Sailing Britaly worked great for me but not so well with my wife. On the other hand it was pretty snarky out there, 2m in 6 secs with occasional 3 meters in there just for fun, ugh.
Sailing Britaly (1 год назад)
+Victor Raymond Our pleasure Victor - let us know how your wife gets on tomorrow. Fair winds! Chris & Rossella 👍

the best way to prevent seasickness is to sail and in case you need to puke do so ... do this a few times and you wont have it anymore
Earthwatcher (1 месяц назад)
Not true. I've sailed plenty in rough seas and still get seasick. It's true that the threshold at which you become seasick will go up, but if the sea's big enough and you're prone to it, you'll get it. I'd like to try this suggestion.
