Any opposition to moving ginger from the chemical treatment portion of this article to the natural treatment section? Also, I've heard that ylang-ylang essential oil is an active ingredient in one of the over-the-counter medications. Does anyone have experience with using ylang-ylang essential oil to relieve motion sickness? If so, could you share specifics as to application technique and results?

Is there any basis for the bald statement that ginger is ineffective in treating motion sickness? As far as I am aware there is ample evidence that it is quite effective and crucially with no side effects. This is a naturally occurring medication and has been found effective in tests by the Danish navy among others. Erwfaethlon (talk) 08:00, 26 March 2016 (UTC)

there is a source, right there in the article. Jytdog (talk) 08:44, 26 March 2016 (UTC)


"Video game related motion sickness (VRMS)" appears to be a made-up term unique to this article. I'm not saying the phenomenon isn't real, but I can find no reference to that specific term outside of this article. (talk) 19:26, 13 November 2015 (UTC)
