Nausea Remedies

I am a young college student who has been having some strange symptoms over the past week including; nausea, organ tremoring, intense fear of death, painful headache on the right side of my head, feeling like bugs crawling up and down my leg, pain on the right leg all the way from my sacrum to knees to toes, an odd rash that a doctor told me was fungal but wont go away with the topical treatments, and restlessness/anxiety especially at night. I thought maybe I had candida or toxic shock but this is not so.

I have been trying to detox for the past 3 weeks using designs for health and opticleanse ghi drinks (though innaccurately folllowed as I was having too many shakes and too many of the wrong foods -- even though they were seemingly the right ones I. E. Dates, honey, nuts, seeds). My above listed symptoms lead me to contact the nutritionist who recomended the diet and she pointed out I was really not detoxing the right way. So I've been in a nutshell researching ways to recover while fearing that in any given moment my body could go into toxic shock... fortunately this has not happened yet and I am certain it will not happen.

SO... last night I ate some of the wrong foods again (now im just eating simple foods to get off the detox -- college detoxing is somewhat difficult) but they seemingly could be the right ones; I. E. Eggplant, tomatoes, salt, raw miso. AND I ate late at night. So I woke up feeling exhausted, super nauseas, super congested in my belly, and I thought holy shit I might vomit or die.

So I grabbed 3 pellets of Arsenicum Album, a remedy I recently bought under suggestion by a homeopathist. Arsenicum Album says its for food poisoning, but its really for bad food combinations, anxiety/exhaustion, neediness in case the Arsenicum person may die or get sick (I was calling everyone who could help me, which lead me to here).

So an hour after taking this I am already feeling much better. Nausea is gone, belly still sensitive and gassy, but I feel like my body is clearing. I will be taking a second dose in an hour and a half if these remaining symptoms are still here. I will also be eating simple foods like miso soup for the rest of the day.

When you take a sniff of the alcohol, it numbs the nerve that controls the stomach. Remember that this is only temporary. If you have to use these more than once, you should probably go to a doctor.

I am currently sitting in my bathroom feeling very nauseated, I came across this post and grabbed the rubbing alcohol out of my medicine cabinet. I just took a big sniff of it and felt immediate relief. I still feel a little sick but I definitely feel much better.


Mint Gum

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.

This really works! I recently had surgery and was prescribed painkillers to help ease the discomfort. I've been able to get by without taking them for a week now, but last night my pain was unbearable so I decided to take half of the pill. Well, about an hour after I took it, I became incredibly nauseous. I ended up vomiting a couple times which I thought would help make me feel better because it usually does, but I still felt nauseous. So when I could finally get myself to the computer, I went to this website for a remedy. When I saw alcohol packets help, I grabbed one from my medicine cabinet, opened it up and began sniffing it. You would think that sniffing alcohol would make the nausea worse, which is to say that it didn't exactly feel good to inhale that first sniff, but after a minute or two, my queasiness subsided. I couldn't believe it. This will definitely be my go to nausea remedy from now on!

Wow, can't believe how fast this works! My daughter was complaining of nausea tonight and I read about this on EC. We didn't have any alcohol swabs, so I just poured some rubbing alcohol into a small cup and let her sniff it. She said she felt better almost immediately! Thank you!

I was fascinated to come across this post as I just had surgery last week, and became very nauseated afterwards. My sweet nurse put an ice pack on my neck and gave me the alcohol swap packet to sniff because she said it helps lots of people. I couldn't believe how well it squelched the waves of nausea!


Chewing Gum

I would feel nausesated about an hour after taking my medication, even taking it with food. I tried chewing (sugar free), wintergreen gum for at least an hour and a half after taking my medication and I have not experienced any nausea since. A friend going through chemotherapy was also experiencing nausea and it is much less severe when chewing the gum too.

Alcohol Swabs for Nausea:

I tried this immediately after reading the suggestion and my nausea vanished. I was just about to call into work sick. Thanks.

I have no idea. For a few days I got nauseous every time I ate. It eventually went away.


Unsweetened Blackberry Juice

My family has used blackberry juice for nausea for as long as I can remember. My mother always had some on hand, and most of us have adopted this practice. One of my brothers used it faithfully when he was going through chemotherapy. He said it was the thing that kept him going. He had a very difficult time keeping anything down.

I had been a bit drained and tired all day. About an hour ago I was shakey, a bit nauseous and weak. I sent my bf out to get me some apple juice. The moment I had 1 cup of apple juice and 2 TBL spoons of ACV, i felt INSTANT relief. I was definitely not expecting it. My bf had food poisoning or some kind of stomach bug over the past day and I was scared I might get it too. I went ahead and took the concoction and I feel fine besides the heartburn which will reside in a few minutes. I dont have as much gas in my stomach and my shakiness has lessened. :) I hope I had enough liquid with the ACV since this is my first time trying it.

Laura, your symptoms sure sound like an H-Pylori infection. I had this and it caused ulcerations like you described, as well as constant nausea, gas, burping for months. Anti-biotics will usually clear it up. They can do a blood test for this. I realize your post is a couple years old, but maybe this will help someone else. Clearly ACV worked for you.. It can work like an antibiotic. So glad you got relief.

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.

Wormwood

I don't often get stomach aches, but when I do, I take wormwood. It also treats and prevents nausea, so I'll take wormwood if I'm anticipating nausea as well (like from certain supplements). It is absolutely foul tasting, so if you plan on taking this for when you get sick, you might want to familiarize yourself with the taste first. That said, there really is nothing better for digestive issues.

You can take it as either a tea or a tincture. You can take the tincture by putting a dropperful in a small glass of water. For the tea, I use one teaspoon in one cup of hot water and steep for five minutes. When I have a stomach ache, I won't bother bringing the water to boil since I want to drink it as soon as possible.

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.
