A year and a half ago she suffered a brain injury that left her with severe vestibular issues...“They were so bad I felt like I was always on a boat. The constant sensation left me with chronic motion sickness. Despite numerous doctors and specialists the best they have come up with is to have me on a constant course of meclizine (prescription strength Dramamine.)”
When the family trip to Hawaii came along she was not about to miss out.“Under doctors supervision my meclizine dosage was adjusted and I boarded the plane. Needless to say I was a drugged out mess. When the family wanted to go to Lanai for a day trip I was terrified.”
Would she go and be a mess? Or would she simply stay behind?“A trip to the Snorkel Store changed it all. Lisa (the store manager) suggested Hana Tonic. I was very skeptical, but did not want to miss out on an activity with the whole extended family.“ “I boarded the boat with two bottles in hand. I drank one bottle for the ride over. My family peppering me with questions the whole trip. I felt great!! The ride over was smooth as silk, but I could even move around on the boat without even a flaring of any motion sickness.”
The ride back was a true test...
“Upon boarding I drank the second bottle praying the ride over hadn't been a fluke. The ride back was over a very choppy channel and involved a boat ride that would have been my undoing. However, I was able to ride the waves for the roller coaster it was almost enjoying every moment. It felt so foreign and I kept waiting to feel sick. It never came. The next day I waited for the hangover that usually accompanies any activities that strain my system... itnever came. I am leaving Maui today and last night bought an entire display case of 9 bottles at the ABC store so I can continue this. “
