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.

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.
peppermint tea
Good luck

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.


Molybdenum

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).


Sea Sickness Remedies

I am about to do a 14 day cruise (first time) but am prone to sea sickness and am worried about being on a ship this long without some good standby remedies. I know ginger is reputed to be beneficial but also would like to be able to take a range of possible cures with me. Would like to hear from the EC community on this one. Thanks.

Go to your pharmacy and get a Seaband. These go on your wrists and work by accupressure.

MotionEaze available in US pharmacies, or on amazon.com

Also ginger chews (ginger/sugar) sweets to suck on, help prevent motion sickness.

Debbie, my small craft flight in had me filling the sick-bag to the brim. A week prior to my flight out, I acclimated myself with about ten minutes swinging on the children's rig daily. All went well as I first fell asleep for a good while, then I was awaken by my mates for a view of Mt McKinley and without any sickness on a Cessna 210 was very fine.

Hi Debbie, Ginger tablets are brilliant but the secret is to take them 30 mins before boarding. I see no reason why you could not take fresh or powdered ginger. Some comercial opperators on boats offer ginger tablets on boarding. These help some but for most people it works best if taken 30 mins before you board. You can top up with them onboard. I forget the recommended intervals but you do need to take them more than just the initial dose.
