Home Remedies That Will Surely Stop Your Nausea

Experiencing nausea can be an arduous affair and nobody wants to experience that. If you leave nausea unattended, you can feel too dizzy to function and you can even make yourself throw up if you aren’t careful. Thus, you should rest up or do something about it once you’re starting to feel it.

With that said, you can use medication to treat it as long as it’s safe and recommended by your doctor. Of course, it’s not good to be dependent on medications to treat yourself. If you can, try and treat your nausea with some home remedies first.

Check out some surprising home remedies for nausea first before you resort to something else. Look at some of them below.

 

Ginger

One of the most frequent and natural remedies that you can use to treat your nausea is ginger.

Nobody knows exactly how that works, but Ginger is something that people have used to treat nausea. However, gingerol is what scientists believe is where Ginger gets its medicinal properties.

Of course, before you chug down gingers left and right, you have to make sure that you get the right amount and the right frequency. Otherwise, you might get some symptoms like heartburn or even diarrhea if you are not careful about your portions.

The great thing about ginger is that a lot of experts consider it to be relatively safe for pregnant women as well.

 

Crackers

If you feel like you want to vomit or have an upset stomach and are feeling nauseous, then you should consider eating some plain crackers to ease your stomach.

This is an especially effective solution when you have got an empty stomach and are nauseous. It will even help if your nausea is caused by your morning sickness.

It helps get something in your stomach without overwhelming it. If you get something too hearty to eat, it might not help you get better from your nausea. Instead, getting something a little more bland like a salty plain cracker should be good enough to get you to be stable.

 

Peppermint

One other unconventional nausea remedy that you might not have tried is peppermint. The leaves of peppermint, as well as its oil form, has a lot of medicinal properties. However, when it comes to dealing with your nausea, it is really the scent of peppermint oil that you should try.

The scent of nausea can help calm you down which will make it easier for you to avoid giving in to nausea. Aside from that, one thing that might help you feel your stomach be more at ease is by ingesting some Peppermint tea as well.

 

Meditation

One of the things that you can try that does not involve food to ease your nausea is meditation. Of course, meditation is easier said than done. Although it appears like meditation is just you sitting and closing your eyes, it requires a bit of focus on your part.

However, it does help ease you when you are blanking out your mind. Since it is quite tricky, it might not be the best for an immediate situation but it is a skill that you might want to get into if you get nauseous often and it hinders you a lot.

 

Acupuncture or Acupressure

If you are not afraid of trying something new or something a bit more unconventional and out of your comfort zone, then you should definitely try acupuncture or acupressure. It is a traditional Chinese medicinal practice that plenty has been using to treat their nausea and even vomiting.

Acupuncture or acupressure stimulates or put in needles into parts and very specific points in your body. Each point addresses a specific issue in your body that can help reduce symptoms of nausea in you. If you just came out of operation and you feel like nausea is something that you might get worried about, then consider getting an acupressure or acupuncture session in.

 

Essential oil

It was mentioned before how Peppermint oil’s aroma can help ease nausea in people. However, peppermint is not the only essential oil that can help ease it in people.

Grapefruit oil is one thing that you can try if you do not particularly like the smell of peppermint. All you need to do is put a couple of drops in a tissue and place it close to your nose and inhale deeply.

The deep breathing is also a big help when it comes to easing your nausea.

 

Baking soda

Baking soda is useful for a lot of stuff. Not only is it good for baking and even cleaning the house, but you can also use it to make a nausea remedy for you.

All you need is to mix half a teaspoon of baking soda in around 4 oz. of water. Drink that so that you can ease the stomach issues you’re having.

However, you should make sure that your doctor thinks that it will not be an issue for you health-wise to this at-home remedy.
