Motion Sickness Prevention -- Naturally!
When it comes to motion sickness prevention there are all sorts of remedies on the market from ginger and wrist bands to a variety of drugs.
How effective they are I don't know, but this natural remedy for motion sickness is very effective and definitely worth a try.
It's easy to learn (even a child can do it), it costs nothing but a bit of time and it might just outdo all the other remedies combined when it comes to effectiveness.
In this case study I worked with a lady who had severe motion sickness every time she had to fly. This was the worst case I had ever heard of so I was interested to see whether EFT would help her.
Motion Sickness Prevention Case Study
This lady was from Argentina and when I met her she was visiting her sister in Perth, Western Australia who she hadn't seen for years.
Her teenage daughter had also flown with her and she also suffered stomach sickness or nausea and severe vomiting every time she had to fly.
They flew from Argentina to Sydney and then on to Perth and both of them threw up the entire way!
It was towards the end of her stay that I met her and she was understandably dreading the flight back home so I asked her if she would like to give EFT a try to see if it would help.
Of course she jumped at the opportunity to try anything that may help her and because she didn't speak a word of English this session was done with her sister interpreting.
The 0-10 intensity level just thinking about the trip back home was at a 10. With her sister interpreting we did a couple of rounds of EFT on dreading the flight back home to take the edge off of it.
Because she couldn't speak English I then focused on the flight from Argentina to Australia. She was at a 10 thinking about it so we did a lot of "chasing the pain".
We worked on her:
- stomach sickness and nausea,
- the heaviness in her chest,
- lump in her throat,
- and other physical symptoms.
Although this all took place in her mind, it was as if she was reliving the experience of that flight to Australia all over again.
It took about 15-20 minutes with her sister interpreting for her intensity level to come down to a 1. As a way to test I asked her to vividly imagine the flight to Australia as well as the impending return flight back to Argentina and she was unable to get those feelings back.
I generally like to get to a 0 but she was tired by this stage and didn't want to continue any further so we left it at that.
There was no way to test whether it had worked or not. We had to wait and see what happened on the flight back home to Argentina.
Motion Sickness Prevention Outcome
Well I spoke to her sister about 2 weeks after she had left Australia and was told:
"I can't believe it. She wasn't sick once. Isn't that unbelievable?"
It was a great result but what was even more interesting was that I didn't work with her daughter at all and she threw up the entire way to Argentina.
EFT is one of the best motion sickness prevention techniques or remedies I've ever seen, hands down. It's certainly worth a try before popping a motion sickness pill don't you think?
