The feeling can begin as a slight queasiness then accelerate to vomiting or in some cases, passing out. There are lots of causes from overeating, food poisoning, viral infections, motion sickness, stress,anxiety, migraines, strong odors and more. Good news is, there are many of natural remedies to ease nausea. Pills can be damaging to the liver if used very often. If you are a frequent nausea sufferer, then considering natural solutions are a must. It is also recommended to talk to a health care professional about any persistent nausea or nausea that recurs and ask them about natural remedies you plan to try. You should always discuss with your doctor any about any new remedy you plan to try. No matter if it's ingested, inhaled or applied topically. Here are the best natural remedies to help ease nausea: • Drink Ginger Tea Via: Essential Oil Sanctuary (http://essentialoilsanctuary.com/5-essential- oil-based-remedies- for-nausea- vomiting-upset- stomach/) “Ginger is great at stopping nausea. It promotes neutralizing stomach acid by increasing digestive secretions. It relaxes the stomach muscles and sedates an overactive stomach. It also helps move foods and toxins through your system faster. You can buy ginger tea bags, or steep your own fresh ginger.” Simple directions for fresh ginger root tea:
- Wash your ginger root
- Slice it into pieces
- Add to your empty tea mug
- Boil water, pour over fresh cut ginger
- Let steep for 5+ minutes
- Either strain or just drink with ginger chunks (I use a yerba mate bombilla.)
- Oh, and add some honey if you’d like.
• Acupuncture and Acupressure Via: Everyday Health (http://www.everydayhealth.com/digestive-health/four-natural-remedies- for-nausea.aspx) “Eastern practitioners have been manipulating pressure points throughout the body to address physical symptoms, including nausea, for thousands of years,according to the NCCIH. One version of this approach, acupuncture, involves inserting long, thin needles into the skin. Although there are many hypotheses for exactly how acupuncture works, many scientists believe the needles stimulate certain nerves in the body, which then send signals to the brain to release hormones that reduce feelings of pain and nausea. When researchers compared acupuncture with medications to control nausea in cancer patients, they found that acupuncture was at least as effective. Acupuncture also reduced the need for anti-vomiting medications after chemotherapy in a 2015 study published in Gynecologic Oncology. Acupressure is similar approach — instead of needles, physical pressure is applied to certain points of the body — that can be performed at home or by a massage therapist. A small 2015 study published in Complementary Therapies in Medicine found that acupressure to the wrist significantly reduced nausea and vomiting in cardiac surgery patients. Both acupuncture and acupressure can help ease nausea caused by pregnancy, cancer, acid reflux, and other situations. “Again, these therapies are particularly useful in pregnancy, where drug interactions are critical and most drugs are to be avoided,” Richter notes. “There are good reference books out on the market to instruct people on how to do acupressure at home on their own.” But if you do decide to pursue acupuncture, make sure your acupuncturist is a licensed professional, she advised.” • Aromatherapy Blends Via: Livestrong (http://www.livestrong.com/article/107214-aromatherapy-nausea/) “In addition to mints like peppermint and spearmint, which are known for their ability to help calm the stomach, ginger is a common aromatherapy recipe used to ease nausea. Other aromatherapy blends for nausea may contain ingredients like basil, clove, lavender, sandalwood, rose, chamomile and anise. For severe nausea, mix a blend of one drop each of peppermint, basil and lavender essential oils with two tsp. of carrier oil. Rub your hands together to warm the oil before gently massaging it over your abdomen.” Use your Bellasentials Aromatherapy Oil Diffuser to make your surroundings calming to sooth your nausea. Remember that scents are personal so explore and have fun trying out blends until you find the most comforting. Let the essential oils take effect and take advantage of these natural benefits. If persistent nausea occurs, always consult with you physician.
