How do I prevent seasickness?

Ginger in its many forms ( candied, tea, pickled, sliced raw) is an excellent natural nausea prophylactic for seasicknes if taken the night before and the morning before sailing.

Although it's very rare that students get seasick during instruction, we have found the Seaband - wrist bands are very helpful in preventing queasiness. They are sold on the Internet, in any drug store or West Marine Products Store( Cost is under $10.00. There is another sea band worn on the inner wrist, called the nausea-quelling ReliefBand ($60.00; Relief Band). It helps avert motion sickness by emitting gentle electrical signals that interfere with nerves that cause nausea. It's reusable and side effect free. We've seen it work well for many students especially those prone to motion sickness.
