Electricity to Avoid Motion Sickness

Seasickness—debilitating dizziness and nausea—from the rocking motion triggered by boats and ships can be avoided by applying mild electricity to the head. The application will also relieve suffering from motion sickness as a result of long trips by airplane, bus, car, or train.

The research, originally published in 2015 in the medical journal Neurology, used the increasingly popular transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) to treat motion sickness. A major advantage for the use of electricity is the absence of any apparent side effects.

Electric Fields to Treat Cancer

Bill DoyleLow intensity electric fields called “Tumor Treating Fields” were revealed to be effective even with cancers that recur after conventional treatments. During a TEDMED talk in October 2011, Bill Doyle explained the device is portable as connections placed on the skin allow the patient to go about daily activities.

Widespread Health Benefits Using Electricity

Research using gentle levels of electricity to heal is on the rise. No less than 14 different studies published in medical journals are tagged to a Science News article published in November 2015.

The studies revolve around the electrical stimulation of the vagus nerve. “With outposts in nearly every organ and a direct line into the brain stem, the vagus nerve is the nervous system’s superhighway.” Research stimulating this far-reaching nerve is showing benefit to reduce headaches, epilepsy, depression, diabetes, improve heart function, and more.

Discovery of yet another function in the body that is controlled electrically is heralded as it has promise to treat cancer. The researchers discovered a “molecular switch” that controls cell growth causes cancer when it malfunctions. The scientists are based at the University of Texas in the USA.

“Scientists discover electrical control of cancer cell growth” was published by ScienceDaily on August 24, 2015.
