Don’t let Seasickness stop you from Sailing Turkey

Motion sickness can be a terrible experience, but there are things an individual can do to less or remove symptoms. No conclusive scientific evidence exists that suggests why a person suffers from motion sickness, but the agreement amongst the scientific community is that it is caused by incongruence in the sensory system.

Sea sickness is a prime example of this. For example, when on a slowly moving boat, your eyes might perceive that your body is not moving. The problem of seasickness occurs because a person's vestibular and somatosensory systems are telling the brain the body is in fact in motion. Your optics nerves are telling your brain one thing and your body is telling the brain something different.

When suffering from seasickness, you will feel at least one or more of the below symptoms.

  • Constant dizziness
  • Sinus pressure and headaches
  • Extreme nausea (can lead to vomiting)
  • Heat flashes and sweating
  • Stomach pain (gastric distress)
  • Hyperventilation

If you suffer from motion sickness in a car, train, plane, or boat, you can still travel. By understanding what you suffer from and why you can begin to make changes that will allow traveling to be safe and comfortable.

Seasickness should not be the only thing that is stopping yours from sailing Turkey. Turkey sailing charters have tricks and tips to help their passengers enjoy their time on boats.
