    What is Nausea?

    Nausea is the sensation of unease and discomfort in the stomach with an urge to vomit or empty the contents of the stomach. Nausea can occur as a result of ‘morning sickness’ in pregnancy, flu, motion sickness, infection, food poisoning, overindulgence, blocked intestine, illness, concussion or brain injury, appendicitis and migraines.

    Nausea doesn't always lead to vomiting (the forcible voluntary or involuntary emptying of stomach contents through the mouth) but can certainly create queasiness in the stomach, a sensation of biliousness and upset stomach. Nausea can originate from problems in the brain and it is also associated with organs of the upper gastrointestinal tract (esophagus, stomach, small intestine, liver, pancreas, and gallbladder). Nausea may also be caused by pain, certain motion, certain medications and diseases of non-gastrointestinal organs.

    It is recommended that if nausea is prolonged and symptoms persist that you consult your doctor for further investigation.

    Natural Remedies


    Many herbal and homeopathic remedies have been formulated with specific ingredients to provide a stable foundation for queasy stomachs. Ginger has long been regarded as a gentle natural remedy for relieving the symptoms of nausea, vomiting, indigestion and flatulence. Nat sulph is a homeopathic remedy used to help prevent nausea as well as calm and soothe the stomach and stabilize delicate constitutions – addressing waterbrash (excess salivation) as well as abdominal cramps and digestion problems.

    Tips to prevent Nausea
    • Try not to let your stomach become empty. To keep your blood sugar levels from dipping - and to prevent nausea from occurring - eat healthy snacks at regular intervals throughout the day. Some good choices include crackers, toast, dried fruit, popcorn and granola bars – try to choose things that aren’t rich or too strong in flavor.
    • Protein is one of the best allies in preventing nausea – as protein is a great source of sustained energy. Try to eat protein the meal before you tend to feel nauseous (if you experience nausea in the mornings, eat protein at night).
    • Dehydration can be a major factor in contributing to nausea, so try to drink 8 glasses of liquid (water, unsweetened juices, and herbal teas) each day.
    • If certain smells, tastes, and textures trigger your nausea, try to limit your contact with these triggers and ask others to be respectful of your feelings.
    • Digestive teas such as fennel, spearmint, and chamomile may also be of benefit if indigestion leads to your nausea.
    • Avoid foods that can cause gas and stomach bloating and avoid sucking on hard candies on an empty stomach. Although this may provide temporary relief - the digestive juices you stimulate could make matters a lot worse!
    • Lack of sleep can aggravate nausea, so try and get adequate amounts of quality sleep at night.
    • CO2 buildup in the blood can contribute to nausea, which can be reduced through exercise and cardiovascular activity such as walking and swimming.
    • Learn to relax! Anxiety and stress can lead to nausea, which in turn can lead to more anxiety, creating a cycle of stomach upset and emotional distress. Try relaxing in a warm bath or listening to a calming CD.
