5 natural ways to get rid of nausea

How to get rid of nausea

At times, vomiting relieves you the discomfort while at other times you just can’t vomit and it gets uncomfortable.

Whether the nausea is due to pregnancy, digestion problems or use of certain medications, there are natural tips you can use at home to get rid of it.

Check out these home remedies for nausea:

1. Ginger

Ginger has been used for thousands of years in treatment of nausea resulting from pregnancy, chemotherapy and C-section. You can either chew the root or drink ginger flavored tea. It is readily available in the market and grocery shops and works even better compared to some to some drugs.

2. Controlled breathing

Studies have shown that deep breathing is an incredible way to control nausea. Take a deep breath through the nose, then exhale through the mouth for a count of three. Although deep breathing can be done anywhere, it is more effective when done in an open place where there is fresh air.

3. Lemon

Lemon not only cleanses the toxins in the body but is also a remedy for nausea. If you ever suffered from travel nausea, you might have heard people tell you to try lemon. And yes, it works. All you do is cut a fresh lemon and smell it every time you feel nauseous.

4. Peppermint/cinnamon

Studies reveal that cinnamon is very effective in relieving nausea caused by menstrual cramps. It’s mostly used as a flavoring in cooking and you can also chew cinnamon flavored gum. Peppermint also does a great job in dealing with chemotherapy nausea and you can use it in your tea just like ginger.

5. Stay hydrated

If you are feeling nauseated, you must drink lots of water to help in digestion and remain hydrated all through especially in hotter days. Dehydration heightens your nausea feelings and can even cause dizziness. If you are vomiting, keep on drinking water to replenish your fluid levels.
