Get Rid of VR Sickness

Actually this phenomenon is also called VR sickness. It is similar to motion sickness like seasickness. Many people told me the reason I suffer this kind of sickness is because that I have a great sense of balance.

But it is just a kind of hypothesis. It still needs more scientific support to determine the true causation.
