For me personally, there is nothing worse than nausea. Apart from making me winey and grumpy, it seems like I can never do a thing to get rid of the feeling. TipNut, however, begs to differ. There are lots of home remedies for nausea that you can make with items you most likely have in your possession. Some you may have heard of, but most of these were completely new ideas to me. Here are some of the remedies you can try the next time a wave of nausea comes over you.
Note: Just keep in mind that these remedies are not necessarily recommended for pregnant women. Consult your doctor before trying any remedy for morning sickness or nausea caused by pregnancy.
- Ginger: you can either eat ginger snaps or candied ginger, or sip ginger ale or add 1/2 ginger power to a glass of water and sip.
- Teas: the following teas should help a bit: peppermint, ginger, chamomile, lemon, raspberry and cinnamon. You could also make a tea with fresh ginger and lemon juice or hot water with cloves seeped in it.
- Add 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar and 1 tablespoon of honey to 1 cup of hot or cold water (whichever you prefer).
- Sip some dill pickle juice.
- Add 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda to a glass of warm water and sip.
Be sure to keep the following in mind:
If the cause of nausea is unknown and persists for more than a couple days, see your doctor. If you’re in physical pain and vomiting, or know of a recent head injury (even the seemingly silly bad bumps) and you’re nauseous, see a doctor.
