I will pop a ginger capsule or sip on some flat ginger ale (make sure the ginger ale actually contains ginger). I take deep breaths and if the ginger's not around, sucking on an Altoid peppermint will soothe the nausea.
For nausea when you feel that nothing will stay down, this works: take thin slice of peel from a lemon, not the white part, just the yellow, and no juice. Put it in about 1 cup of water and boil for 2 minutes. Add sugar. You can sip it or drink with a spoon.
Ginger helps, but this is fast and reliable.
slicing small coins of ginger in a pot of hot boiling water is great. drink the ginger infusion afterwards.
but lets not forget, most commonly medical marijuana users medicate to soothe extreme nausea.
I have found that the 'wet mouth moment' right before you vomit, will ease and go away with short small sniffs of a medical alcohol sanitizing pad. The smell of the alcohol deadens the nerve to the stomach temporarrily and will keep you from vomiting at the wrong moment, IE work or in front of others with weak stomachs.(DO NOT inhale the pad, only a passig sniff.)
Oregano boiled w/ water and a little bit of sugar works miracles for me every time i get nausea. I know it sounds wierd but it really works. It helps relieve the gases in the stomach.
A Japanese friend of mine suggested gari - the pickled ginger you get with sushi. It worked wonders for me.
I get nausea often.
I find taking a motion sickness tablet is the most helpful.
If not that..then I keep a cold compress on my head & on the back of my neck & try eating salted crackers and/or dry toast.
I have suffered from nausea (morning sickness) for 2 out of 3 pregnancies.
Following are some non-medicine remedies that have worked well for me.
* Red Raspberry Leaf tea
* Peppermint tea - or a peppermint candy
* Papaya and fruit enzymes chewable tablets. These work to help your digestive system by breaking down food in the stomach. Nausea is sometimes triggered by food that doesn't break down and just sits around in the stomach. These are taken after a meal.
(Available at virtually all health food stores)
* GINGER - in all forms:
Ginger tea (bring water to a boil and add slices of a 2 inch piece of ginger; simmer for 15 minutes; strain and drink - can be sweetened if necessary)
You can also try sucking on a piece of ginger - or eating some ginger candy. Ginger pills work too - they just take a bit longer to kick in.
Real, old-fashioned ginger ale is tasty too.
Gingersnaps or gingerbread cookies made with real ginger are great too.
* Crackers - typically saltines work best.
* Dry toast
* Vitamin B-6 is believed to be very helpful with relieving nausea. However, if you have a difficult time keeping down vitamins - take them 30 minutes before bed (it's best not to lie down immediately after taking any vitamin or medicine).
* A diet with lower fats and higher in proteins and carbs will also help. But make sure those carbs are healthy ones such as whole-grains. Also eat smaller more frequent meals as opposed to large meals.
* Yogurt helps with replenishing good flora in your digestive track - which also helps. I like to make a strawberry smoothie with just plain yogurt, water, frozen strawberries and a bit of sugar...
* Olfactory remedies include: sniffing ginger, lemon peel, lavender oil and peppermint oil. Your brain will trigger responses to these smells which can alleviate nausea
* Sour food and/or drinks can help too. Freshly squeezed lemonade (go easy on the sugar)... pickles worked well for me too.
* Try not to drink with your meals - but between them.
I've tried it all... all of these work - even if only for a short time, they work. =)
I have no idea why this works, but i have nausea everyday due to a new medication and the only thing that works for me is salt & vinegar potato chips. Crazy i know, but if it works for me it might work for you.
If you are having nausea and vomiting try to lay as still as you can.The stomach is churning already and movement will make things worse.Also keep your head still.
