Nearly everyone has experienced nausea at one time or another, but not everyone get nauseated from the same thing. Nausea caused by a number of chemical changes in the body, and can be triggered by many different factors, ranging from motion to emotional upset to foul odors .
Nausea is usually a passing symptom that will almost always go away by itself. In most cases, natural remedies are preferable to cure nausea. I recommend natural remedies to cure nausea because they are often as effective as some of the prescription antiemetic drugs, but they do not cause unnecessary side effects.
Here are some natural remedies that cure nausea:
Ginger – Ginger root has a long traditional history as an effective cure for nausea. Ancient Greek physicians knew about ginger’s positive effects and, in more modern times, it was used by Queen Elizabeth I as a digestive aid. In one double blind study reported in The Lancet,a British medical journal, ginger was more effective that the drug Dramamine in preventing nausea associated with motion sickness.
Another study treated sixty women who had had major gynecological surgery with either ginger or a placebo. Those receiving ginger had fewer incidences of nausea, and those who received the placebo required larger doses of anti nausea drugs to cure their symptoms.
Chamomile tea – This tea traditionally been used as a digestive aid. Chamomile oil appears to have a relaxing action on the smooth muscle lining of the digestive tract, making it an antispasmodic. Many people are allergic to chamomile, however, so if you have hay fever, I would recommend that you avoid it.
Basil – This green herb is more than a delicious addition to Italian food, it is an effective remedy for a variety of digestive disorders, including nausea, vomiting, and stomach cramps.
Caraway – These seeds are often used in baked goods, and are known for their mildly spicy, aromatic flavor. Brewed in a tea, caraway helps improve digestion, expel gas, and reduce nausea.
Other natural remedies that cure nausea are ginger root tea, peppermint tea, and cinnamon.
