Alright - SO...I bought the following:
1. Ginger chips;
2. Ginger candy;
3. Fresh Ginger;
4. Ginger Gum;
5. The "Psiband" (Wrist band); and
6. Prescription patches.
I went out this last Saturday and it wasnt extremely rough or anything, but it was definitely enough to get me sick if I didnt take anything.
I woke up 2 hours before my sail and ate half a dry bagel (boring!) and a couple of the ginger chips/ginger candies. Just before getting on the boat I put the band on my wrist (tighter than recommended) and crossed my fingers. I was prepared with a pocket full of Dramamine JUST IN CASE...
I am SO happy to say that either the ginger or band (or a combination of both) worked just fine for me! I would still get a small hint of nausea here and there, and when those hit I would just pop in a piece of the ginger gum - which would work GREAT.
I cant say that I'm 100% nausea free, but I can say that I'm 95% better off with only these natural remedies. I am going to try the 72hr patch (behind the ear) just to see what sort of effect it has on me!
Hopefully you others out there who suffer from this find some relief as well!
