Treatments - Activities[edit]

Looking at the history of the article makes it seem that a lot of people have added the wisdom from their own personal experience and their own personal remedies. However, Wikipedia is not a recipe box, and giving medical advice is not the purpose of Wikipedia either.

The problem is the complete lack of sources in these paragraphs. In the activities section for instance, the fresh air part is the only sourced part. There is a "citation needed" tag at the sentence about the chewing, but really the whole section is, at best, original research.

If there are no reliable sources to be found for this content, some of which has apparently been sitting in this article for years already, we really should get rid of these personal health recommendations. -- (talk) 22:13, 30 April 2017 (UTC)

Starting to edit, I just now saw that this "citation needed" tag has been sitting in there for six years already! This is ridiculous. I will take out that "chewing" part right here and now, and anyone restoring this or adding new health recommendations please don't forget to bring along the sources. -- (talk) 22:17, 30 April 2017 (UTC)

Shouldn't this statement be under the Nausea article?[edit]

As follows is a quote from the Motion sickness article: '"Nausea" in Greek means seasickness (naus means ship).' This seems, at least under my opinion, belong more to the Nausea article itself. Should this be included under there? (Note that this statement could be adding context to Seasickness) TheDragonFire300 (talk) 07:32, 10 July 2017 (UTC)
