Nausea Remedies

Sea Sickness Remedies
Posted by Robyn (Perth, Western Australia) on 02/27/2013

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.

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).

MotionEaze available in US pharmacies, or on

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

I don't know why, but for the past couple of days my stomach has just been so queazy. So this morning I decided to look up remedies. I read all the comments on this one and tried it. At first I didn't think it was going to work and then out of the blue I realized I felt fine. It really does work and I'm gonna carry these in my purse today:)

I am going on my first cruise in seven days and would like to know how to prevent sea-sickness. Has anyone had any experience and know what to do to prepare oneself before hand, or what to do if you experience sea-sickness once on board the ship? Any and all advice is appreciated!

Sea wrist bands, found at Rite-aid, CVS, etc. They are better that any drugs I've used. The principle is accupressure point.

Clarity, thank you so much for your reply. I am going to buy the sea-sickness wristbands for my family and myself. Will let you know how they work out for us on our return!

Stop at an Oriental store and purchase some Ginger Candy. Take this as needed. Drink Ginger Ale on the ship, WASH YOUR HANDS a lot.

Thanks 7zeropoints for the seasickness remedy! I'm going tomorrow to buy the ginger candy and use it along with the seasickness wristband. Since we are permitted to bring our own soda on board, I'll have a stash of ginger-ale too. We will most certainly keep purell handy at all times. I appreciate the information that you've provided. It will be put to good use! Tahiti

Get some organic cotton balls. If you are right handed, put a cotton ball in your left ear, if you are left handed put a cotton ball in your right ear, this helps some people with seasickness.

I developed nausea about 1.5 hours after eating dinner and tried using the alcohol swab suggestion after reading it. I had immediate relief of what I thought was going to turn into a lot more than just the nausea. I feel 100% better now. I love this site.

It's also really good for indigestion. A true friend to expectant mothers, what with the morning sickness and heartburn that can occur!

Bitters are 44% alcohol. Good for what ails you, great for indigestion and a few other things (wiki it), but it is an alcoholic beverage. When I first quit drinking, I used to have a little in a glass of soda. I was informed by sober friends this is not kosher. Just a head's up.

Diandra, what was it that caused your nausea?

Baking Soda
Posted by Kelly (Clearwater, Florida) on 03/22/2017

Yeah I take Phenergan because of chronic severe nausea and it takes me 2-3 hours now before it really kicks in and finally gives me relief. I will try the baking soda tomorrow. I pray it works!

Apple Cider Vinegar
Posted by Ken (Waldorf, Maryland) on 11/27/2009

I just had gallbladder surgery almost two months ago. I suffer from nausea, stomach aches and irregularity--to include diarrhea--referred to as "dumping." Seems like anything I eat, I feel nausea, stomach ache, gas, bloating, etc. I am willing to try apple cider vinegar.

Question: How much should I try everyday and at what dosage? I've read where some people have drank a half glass of water with two teaspoons of water; but how many times a day? Any suggestions? Some people have taken apple cider with baking soda. Should I try both? I really could use someone's recommendations. My life has really changed since my surgery...for the bad more than for the good; I don't want the stomach doctor giving hooked on prescriptions that may or may not help my condition.

I have been using charcoal tablets for 26 years! I suffer from stomach problems although I am much better since using natural remedies. I have recently started using baking soda and have seen amazing results!

Hello, I'm going to use charcoal for the first time. I'll be using it for nausea. Can you please tell me how I should use it, and in what quantity? Do I dilute it in water, etc? Thanks a lot, Laurie
