How To Stop Nausea
There are many things that can cause stomach nausea and this video shows some good ways to help ease the condition with both natural and pharmaceutical methods.
I am going to talk to you today about how you can reduce nausea. Nausea is when people feel sick, but they don't actually vomit. And it's a general feeling that lasts throughout the day.
There's a huge number of reasons why people get nausea. Most commonly, these are, for example, motion sickness, people who are pregnant can feel nausea, not just in the morning, but it can be throughout the day. Medication can make people feel nauseous.
And also, you can have nausea in conjunction with any normal virus or normal illness. So, people might feel nauseous if they have a cold or an ear infection. If you don't know why you feel nauseous, and you've been feeling this way for two or three days, I would recommend you go to the GP.
Because nausea can be a sign of an underlying stomach problem or something a GP needs to investigate. If you know why you have nausea, there are certain things you can do that can help. First of all, if you are able to rest, then resting and taking the stress out of your life can help nausea.
There are certain foods that you can eat that can help calm down nausea. Traditionally, people have always eaten products containing ginger, and this is thought to calm down the feeling of sickness and nausea that people get, particularly with pregnancy, but also with other forms of nausea, for example, travel sickness. So, taking ginger biscuits or ginger ale can help some people with nausea.
As well as eating ginger, I would be very careful about other foods you're taking that could worsen the nausea. So, for example, dairy products can worsen nausea, very rich foods can worsen nausea, and very smelly foods such as fish can make people feel more nauseous. So, I would recommend sticking to a very plain diet, plain biscuits, plain bread, plain toast, all of which can calm down the stomach.
For some people, dealing with nausea is about mind over matter. And if you are suffering from nausea, for example, in pregnancy, or because you are taking medication, then very much it can help if you concentrate on other things. People find the nausea goes away when they are busy with work or concentrated on doing something that they enjoy, like watching television or reading a book.
For acute nausea, when you're feeling unwell with a cold or virus, it can help if you calm yourself down, as often feeling nauseous is due to a fever. So, open the windows and get some fresh air as this can very much help. You can also buy medication to help with nausea from the pharmacy, as well as acupressure bands that some people do find helpful for nausea, although they are not scientifically proven.
So, there's some advice for how to reduce nausea. .
