What Causes Motion Sickness?

Motion sickness is a common issue that people experience when they're on the road. While it can ruin road trips, it is treatable. By understanding what causes motion sickness, you can take the steps to control it.

Motion sickness is caused by your inner ear, eyes, and brain. It happens when one part of your body senses motion but the other doesn't. On the road, your inner ear may feel the motions of the road while your eyes only see a stationary cabin interior. Essentially, your brain thinks you're in trouble and will try to save you by causing you to throw up. To combat this problem, you need your body's various mechanisms to work together. The best way to do this is to sit in the front seat and focus on a point on the horizon. You'll be able to see the road moving around you while you're feeling bumps and hills.
