I keep ginger candy on hand because it cures my occasional indigestion. But yesterday I had terrible nausea, likely from something I ate. All I could do was lay there with my eyes closed. I didn't believe that ginger could help but my husband convinced me to take a piece of ginger candy. Within 5 minutes I felt 90% better, the nausea was totally gone and I just had a little bit of yucky feeling for the rest of the day.
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.
Ginger is one of the best remedies for nausea. You can get fresh ginger root at the health food store and make your own ginger tea. Just carefully cut off or peel the skin off it first. Cut off a few small pieces and soak them in a cup of hot water for 10 minutes or so. Then when it's cooled off enough, you can drink it like tea.
Ginger tea is also sold in tea-bag form, too.
I struggled with headaches associated with motion sickness and nausea for years. I was told to take ginger. I take ginger capsules, I get them at walmart and it does wonders when I travel. jus passing info along.
YEAH .. ginger tea is quick fix for nausea. I use to take it during pregnancy. i use tea bags.
Ginger cures nausea. Fresh ginger, peeled then chopped or grated, any amount; then boiled or boiled water poured over it in a cup. Also, most health food stores and some food stores sell bagged ginger tea to make a cup. You can add sweetener if you please. Also ginger ale, crystallized ginger and sometimes even ginger cookies.
I get nauseous a lot, and I swear by crystallized ginger after eating, especially if I feel bloated or ate too much. In Ayurvedic medicine, 500 year old East Indian medicine, they believe that ginger fires up the internal digestive fire.
Ginger is very good for cancer patients and AIDs patients, cause they get nausea a lot. I've suggested it to many friend and they say it worked for them
Other cures I've used for nausea (they do not have to be used together) are:
a warm hot water bottle, wrapped on my abdomen.
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."
A hot bath helps too. It reduces nausea and cramps.
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.
The remedy my family has used for nausea is a big drink of pure lemon juice.
This usually takes care of the problem right away. In case of persistent nausea, I take a lemon with me and bite it whenever the feeling comes back.
Chewing mint gum significantly reduces my nausea. Usually the nausea is from feeling dizzy or car sickness. It doesn't completely take it away, but it keeps me from feeling worse.
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.
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.
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
For the past couple of days, I've been feeling really nauseous after eating. I tried ACV thinking it would help since it works for a lot of ailments, but it didn't. I knew that probiotics are really beneficial to the digestive system, so I thought why not give it a try. I took 2 capsules each time and felt relief in a matter of minutes. I was so amazed. I used the real-deal type of probiotics that you have to keep in the refrigerator (bought from the health food store).
