 Herbal Medicine: Motion Sickness 
A disorder caused by repetitive angular and linear acceleration characterized primarily by nausea and vomiting.

Motion sickness is a syndrome that occurs in some people when they travel in a vehicle such as an automobile, airplane, or ship. Its symptoms include dizziness, nausea, vomiting, drowsiness, pallor, and sweating. Why some people experience motion sickness and others don't, is uncertain. The syndrome appears to arise from a disturbance in the organs of balance found in the inner ear. Psychological factors may also be involved. In the course of a long journey, the problem may disappear on its own, and in general such symptoms quickly cease once travel is ended.

Specific Remedies:
Ginger can usually be relied upon. Research published in the British medical journal The Lancet, showed it to be more effective than Dramamine in preventing the symptoms of motion sickness. It may be taken as a cup of fresh infusion, eaten as candied ginger, or as capsules of the powder. For people who do not like the taste of ginger the capsules are ideal, usual dosage of such capsules is 2 to 4 as needed. The herb Black Horehound (Ballota nigra)will also reduce this kind of nausea. One of the more effective allopathic treatments involves a dermal patch of scopolamine, a constituent of Belladonna.

One possible prescription:

Black Horehound
Peppermint equal parts to 5ml taken 20 minutes before travel.
Ginger eat a small piece of candied ginger as needed, just before travel.
