Eliminating Lactose From Diet

Just wanted to say that this is what worked for me. I used to have intense bouts of nausea, absolutely awful. I could barely move, I just felt so sick. I couldn't leave the house for long, it was just nightmarish. I hope I never go back to feeling that bad, and it just went on and on and on.

Until... I gave up lactose. And then ta-da, no nausea! As you can imagine, I was very happy!

Now, I still have other digestive problems and probably Candidiasis or some other kind of infection down there, but in terms of the intense nausea, it's all gone!

Sometimes I get mild nausea such as after acidic food and stuff, but really, it's very mild. I have also made some other overall dietary changes, but the lactose was the main nausea trigger.

Oh, also, ginger and baking soda are both godsends!

Best of luck :)

I usually add 1/8 teaspoon to half a glass of water and take small sips you should feel better within 5 minutes or so. Make sure the baking sooda is completely diluted and mixed well before drinking...Hope this helps.

Homeopathy works. About 25 years ago, for less than $5.00, I picked up a bottle of 500 1-gr tablets of "NATRUM SULPH 6X" for nausea, and this products has worked very well for me ever since.

The tablets are soft and small and dissolve in the mouth in a couple of minutes. Despite directions to the contrary, I have never taken more than 4 tablets per day, and I have always taken the tablets sublingually.

The tablets come in a flat plastic bottle that can be pocketed easily. Its label says, "500 1-gr tablets of NATRUM SULPH 6X for nausea and vomiting. Directions: Acute: 4 tablets ever hour. Tonic: 4 tablets 4 times a day taken dry, or dissolved in water. Children: 2 tablets as above."

For nausea, try a capsule of baking soda - sodium bicarbonate this you can take with you & a easier way to take it, tastes nasty in water.

It helps with Diarrhea and real fast to. For the nausea try CBD capsules either type will work, no need for full spectrum. I use this for it.

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.

Peppermint definitely works very well. I felt very nauseous on a long and important train journey I was on!

I went through 2 or 3 packs of Polo mints but I survived, lol

1/8 tsp of Baking soda in a small cup with warm water worked to rid the nausea I have had for a 5 day.. Much better and easier than OTC medications.

Better But With Side Effects

I suffer from Cyclic Vomiting Syndrome and everything with ginger I try always works. It could be candied, tea, fresh ginger boiled in water, fresh ginger itself, pickled ginger, with or without other foods as well. Even ginger supplements in capsule form work. Everyone is different so you should find out how your stomach reacts to ginger in these different forms in case one of these ways causes stomach cramps which I have found each one has a different effect.

This is a very dangerous habit. When one inhales alcohol, the fumes enter the lungs, which causes some of the alcohol to get absorbed into the bloodstream. Side effects include headaches, trouble breathing, gastric issues, and even death. Look up isopropyl alcohol huffing, and read about the host of side effects people suffer from doing this.

I am 7 weeks into my 3rd pregnancy and got on here to look up remedies for my nausea. When I saw applesauce it reminded me that I used to eat a tablespoon of it everyday when I felt nauseous with my last baby! So, thanks for the reminder, now I have to go get some LOL.

Have you been checked for Lactose Intolerance? No one could figure out my nausea/diarrhea after eating. Years ago I diagnosed myself by reading about someone just like me in a popular little health magazine. Turns out allergic to dairy products, ..which I learned I can still eat as long as I take Lactaid Pills. Spent years trying to figure out what the problem was. Lots of stomach pains! Solved it all by reading that article and a ten dollar bottle of pills! I feel for anyone who does not know about this and is going through what I went through. I love this site. It has helped me so much.

Nausea Cure: I have had a few surgeries in the past 20 years and each time I would wake from the anesthesia I would be extremely nauseous. Vomiting after surgery is never a pleasant experience. Last year I underwent 3 treatments in as many days from my chiropractor, Manipulation Under Anesthesia. I wasn't thrilled at the thought of waking up 3 days in a row and vomiting post-anesthesia.

On the second day as they were wheeling me out to my waiting daughter the nurse saw me turning green and she handed me an alcohol packet. She tore it open and said sniff this. I could barely comprehend but I did sniff and it was amazing. The urge to be sick left me immediately. She sent several more of those little packets home with me for the long drive back to my house and I did not get sick once.

This was a first for me to not vomit post-surgery. I haven't tried it for any other types of nausea or motion sickness, only after anesthesia but it's worth a try if you are nauseated for whatever reason.

EC: Alcohol packet = alcohol swabs sold in drugstores (wound care section) ,which contain 70% isopropyl alcohol. If you mean something else, please let us know!

Hi Ken. My wife had her gallbladder removed about 4 years ago. She sometimes suffers, what is similar to gallbladder attacks. It has been said somewhere, that people still get stones in their BILE DUCTS after the gallbladder has been removed.

What we do for her is a shot glass or 2 tablespoons of raw applecider vinegar/ unfiltered in a glass ( 8oz ) of room temperature apple juice. She will down this and the pain and nausea is gone pretty fast. She just does this when ever she has pain or bad nausea.

You may also want to consider charcoal tablets as they are suppose to help with all kinds of stomach issues...Gas, bloating and nausea.

And I know this is not a natural remedy and I do still have my gallbladder, but when I have severe nausea...I take motion sickness pills and it goes away quickly.

Hope this helps.

Rubbing Alcohol to Help Nausea

My granddaughter used this remedy and it almost worked immediately. Her nausea disappeared, and it was an easy thing to do.

Alkaline Water

I have found that high alkaline water is a godsend for nausea. The best part is that it tastes just like regular water. It is available at any health food store and my brother and I have found that it settles our stomachs greatly. I highly recommend it.

I was feeling very nauseous one morning before I ate breakfast and vomiting was imminent. Tried the alcohol swabs on EC and it didn't work. So I tired 12 drops of Lugol's iodine in about and ounce of water. Within about 15 minutes, the nausea went away.
