My wife has had trouble with nausea all of her life. We take lots of supplements and they make her sick. Every time she eats a meal she has a bout with nausea. Sometimes the alcohol trick or mint or charcoal works to relieve nausea and sometimes not.

She started 150 mcg of molybdenum once a day and after about a month of this, the nausea is just about gone.

We learned this trick right here on EC.

Slippery Elm Tea

I've been experiencing nausea every night for months. Went to the docs twice, said it could be gastritis or acid reflux.

I was reading up on some Edgar Cayce remedies and his suggestion of slippery elm bark (the loose powder form) is the one remedy that has been helping me.

I put an 1/8th of a teaspoon in a cold glass of water in the morning. Let it sit for a few minutes, stir, then drink.

I've tried nearly every other home remedy and nothing else helped. I figured maybe it could help others out there as well. Cayce also suggested American saffron tea. Haven't tried it but I will be soon.

Note: don't take other supplements 2 hours before or after drinking this as it may hinder absorption.

In early 2016, I noticed an inverse correlation between regional diets high in molybdenum-containing foods and morning sickness. While I was writing up a medical hypothesis about the morning sickness issue, my sister tried molybdenum glycinate for a stomach bug. She discovered that when taken before the vomiting had gotten underway, molybdenum was extraordinarily effective at doing away with nausea and vomiting (the other symptoms remained, including intestinal distress and some diarrhea). Two other families that I know of have since used it when a stomach bug/virus hit their home, and it is effective at ending the nausea. Not just alleviating it. The vomiting is gone.

We've been using the molybdenum glycinate (molybdenum chelated to glycine) powdered supplement because it's easy to open the capsule and stir the powder into beverages. 500 mcg seems to be enough for a regular adult (less for children, of course). We don't take it chronically, just when a stomach bug comes around.

Someone should test molybdenum for motion sickness. Also, based on what a friend reported to me, it might help relieve chemotherapy-caused nausea.

Hope this helps some people! Nausea and vomiting are just awful.

Baking Soda

Posted by Romanbreeze (Sugarcreek, Ohio Usa ) on 01/26/2011

My grandma had used this remedy in her house for decades. I still use it to this day. I use a shot glass and put enough baking soda in it to cover the bottom of glass, add some room temperature water, stir, plug my nose and take my shot of baking soda. I have found it works if I ate something that didn't agree with me, but not when I had the flu. I just found out that I am pregnant so I'm sure I will find out soon if it works for morning sickness, as long as it's safe for baby. :-)

Apple Cider Vinegar

About 6 months ago, I suddenly woke up with severe nausea and constant burping. Everything I ate and drank made me feel sick. I woke up nautious and went to bed nat ious every day. My quality of life started changing. I did not want to go out anymore and do things because I constantly felt sick. Being newly engaged, this really put a damper on my relationship. Who wants to be around someone that feels sick everyday and to be honest..when you are sick everyday you reach a point where you just want to be alone. I am only 27 years old and I felt like I had put on 10 years or more in the last 6 months. I even told my mother if I had to live the rest of my life like this I might kill myself. Everything made me sick. Even riding in a car. I had a colonoscopy which came back fine. I then had a scope done and showed that I had erosions all in my stomach, throat, and esophogas. I have been on prevacid and aciphex, which did not seem to help at all and the constant burping was just nasty and embarrassing. I got online and found this site and figured I would give the ACV a chance. This is only my 4th day and oh my goodness thank you god!!! I am not nauseous anymore. Riding in a car no longer makes me sick. If I burp it is one good one instead of a million tiny ones and I have energy like I haven't had in years. I have lost 3 pounds in a few days and I am not having bad cravings. I also notice my skin looks better. I also have battled depression for a long time and I actually feel happy. I woke up at 4a.m smiling thinking why am I so happy. This is truley amazing and I can't wait to keep taking it and see what else it does. If you have battled acid reflux believe me I know how horrible it is. Please just try this and you will not regret it!!!
