Has motion sickness improved or gone into remission with Paleo?

Whether it be seasick, carsick, playing 3D video games etc.

If so - what did you do?

It's good to know there's hope! I've been paleo for 3 months with no noticeable improvement. I can't even swing on a swingset. I keep Dramamine in my purse at all times. The worst thing is getting to the airport (parking shuttle or taxi) because I don't take the pills until 15 min. before boarding. Apparently it's common for migraine sufferers like myself to have motion sickness. So embarrassing at age 41. On the plus side, no one on the plane wants to chat up someone who practices her quick-draw with the barf bag before takeoff. I get a lot of work done that way.

Ugh, I wish. Always had motion-sickness but now it's worse ever since I had my daughter. Also, more balance and fear-of-heights issues. Paleo has offered no relief for any of it.

Good luck!

Quite the contrary. I used to get carsick when I was a kid. Haven't been carsick in 20 years. Started paleo last July, and have been airsick twice since.

I know I DO get sick when I eat crappy before I kayak in a nice swell. I've also noticed I'm MUCH better adapted to altitude now.

I used to get carsick, if I was not driving. Even in the passenger seat, I could not read, watch movies, or even help with directions. In the back seat, I had to keep my head against the back of the seat and look out the front window. On long trips, I pretty much had to put my head back and close my eyes, if on either of the sides in the back seat.

I now can ride any where in the car, without having to put my head back and close my eyes. I can help with directions, on trips I read and watch movies. No sickness at all! I can also watch 3D movies without having to take the glasses of an close my eyes various times throughout the movie. I don't know if an airplane ride has changed, but I am sure it has.

This all started clearing up after about 3-4 months of paleo :)
