Nausea

What is Nausea?
There are few things in life that feel more uncomfortable and awful than nausea, or the sensation of needing to vomit. Whether it is caused by the stomach flu, food poisoning, motion sickness, drugs, or something else related to the nervous or digestive systems, nausea is a symptom and result of a variety of medical conditions. While many cases of nausea are the body’s attempt to heal itself from a condition, the perpetuation of nausea through vomiting can lead to dehydration and deprivation of vital substances needed for sustained health.

How can I treat Nausea?
Traditional Chinese medicine uses acupuncture to treat cases of nausea through balancing the stomach energy and addressing underlying causes of the symptoms. Nausea can be relieved through the consumption of wholesome foods such as apples, papayas, pineapples, yams, potatoes, brown rice, oats, black sesame seeds, and especially ginger. Other remedies include drinking six glasses of room temperature water per day, sucking on ice cubes, drinking ginger tea made from fresh ginger root, and drinking cinnamon and clove tea. It is also helpful to practice meditation.

What should I avoid in my lifestyle for Nausea?
To prevent nausea, it is best to avoid overeating, cold and raw foods, spicy and hot foods, fatty and greasy foods, dairy products, onions, garlic, medications that cause nausea, alcohol, and smoking.
