Seasick sailors- New App to banish seasickness

Seasickness, cartoon by www.Phillipmartin.info .. .
If you ever feel like the guys in this clever cartoon by Phillip Martin when you go sailing, you may want to know about what seems also very clever - an App that can cure your seasickness. Don't believe it? Read on.

The actual product has been around for a while, but what's new is that you can now download it to your iPhone, iPad and or Android device. The claim is that, because seasickness is connected with your ears, it can cure seasickness without any drugs, just using sound.

It's called Nevasic, and it uses specially constructed audio signals to generate a reaction which reverses your feeling of nausea.

It is a new form of antiemetic (anti-vomiting), with no drugs, no chemicals and no side effects. Due to the nature of the product there are no age limits, no language barriers and no geographical barriers to its use and Nevasic is re-usable and highly cost effective.

How does it work?
The manufacturers say that the ears together with the brain and gut are the three primary organs involved in the process of vomiting.

They say they have discovered that issuing the specifically identified and constructed tones, frequencies and pulses in this programme to the ear in a direct mode they can disrupt the normal signal chain at the Vestibular level and therefore affect the chain. By affecting the chain in this manner they claim they have also demonstrated the ability to stop and prevent emesis or sickness.

The unique specialist audio programme contains specific tones, frequencies and pulses concealed by an over-layer of music. Many of the frequencies and pulses that desensitise the Vestibular system are bordering our recognizable audio spectrum, but still have a profound effect on the ear. In other words your ear is still picking them up but you may not recognise it - much the same as a dog whistle, your ear receives it but you don't register it.

If you want to give it a try, https://itunes.apple.com/au/app/nevasic/id349098250?mt=8!click_here to go to the download information. It costs around $12 depending on where you purchase it.

By giving a location, date, identification if possible, and any other relevant information you can help scientists better understand where marine mammals are at risk for strikes

In fact, changes in the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (AMOC) — the same deep-water ocean current featured in the movie “The Day After Tomorrow” — could occur quite abruptly, in geologic terms, the study says.
