Acid helps! What?
Today we were supposed to call on Ishigaki Island in Okinawa. However, due to a typhoon approaching the sea conditions were not perfect so the ship is returning to Taiwan one day early.
If the waves get intense it will be a little rough for some people who are not accustomed to sea life.
So if your stomach starts to stir, eating sour food is the magic bullet. It is not clear how the acid causes a chemical reaction but it’s been an outstanding solution for me. since I started working with Princess Cruises, I have never taken medicine even on days when I thought I would be tossed out of bed.
Apples and citrus. When you eat fruit, please have a side bottle of mineral water. This combination will alleviate your strained stomach very quickly.
And if it’s a alcohol drink, I recommend strong acid champagne it’s also effective. Of course, drinking, too much will make things much worse. So that’s why I prefer the safe and sure way of apples, citrus and mineral water.
And if you are already feeling terrible, eat the above mentioned plus, simple bread such as French bread. Just remember a ship is not on the ground, it’s on the water and sometimes it can move a little. 😉
So, does this really work? Are you skeptical?
The method I introduced is from a few physical emergencies 🙁 I had early in my sailing days. But you would be wise to keep it in the back of your mind, before a nightmare happens in a few minutes it will become heaven ….
Try it next time!
