I googled some suggestions for relief from nausea for someone else and thought I would post them here, as others might find them useful. This is not a comprehensive list and there may be items on it that are clearly unsuitable or don't work. Everybody is literally different. Identifying the underlying cause of your nausea should always be your goal and subject to the caveats that follow, this information list has been compiled as a quick reference/reach for tool. Also exercise good judgement, common sense and knowledge of your own personal health circumstances. For example if you suffer from GORD/GERD, vinegar and citric acid or a food intolerance such as milk, might aggravate this condition and make the nausea worse, so clearly you would not try remedies involving such. Similarly some substances in the remedies might not be advisable to take in conjunction with certain medications. If you are not certain as to whether a remedy on this list will work or make matters worse, then seek medical advice first. Use the guide: if in doubt - don't. For newbies to ME and CFS, who are just learning about what works and what does not with regard to your body and your symptoms, the last point is especially important. Remember that these remedies may or may not work, and may not be suitable for everyone and or anyone in certain circumstances and so, are not a substitute for seeking medical advice and treatment and discerning the underlying cause of your nausea, which you should do as soon as your able. Again this is, a quick informational reference list/tool only and does not constitute medical advice, general advice or recommendations. It is compiled from shared knowledge and in the hope that people knowledgeable about their own bodies and medical conditions and limitations, will be able to put it to good use and or find something on this list to provide some temporary relief, if they feel it is appropriate to their individual circumstances. Ultimately, you are responsible for choosing a remedy from the list and if you are in doubt as to its suitability for you, seek medical advice. Ultimately you are responsible for your health and your health choices. Please note that an [*] denotes remedies that have worked at various times, for different nausea related causes, for some PR members. If people feel strongly that there is something on this list that should be removed, then please also leave comments to that effect too. Its all helpful and appreciated. I will try to add to the list and edit it as it progresses/and or subject to general interest. Increase water intake* The first thing that is recommended is to make sure you keep well hydrated. I think this is important if we have lots of toxins floating about in our bodies. A naturopath told me the other day, that when we are not taking in enough fluid, the body draws it away from the bowel (resulting in constipation), but - think about it - that fluid is coming from the bowel and being redeployed elsewhere !! You wouldn't drink out of your toilet would you? so fresh fluids are important. Avoid Spicy and Oily Foods* Avoid spicy and or oily/fatty foods whilst feeling this way. Protocols and supplements for liver support might also be worth considering too. Smaller Meals* As nausea can arise from poor digestion, smaller meals, and or digestive enzymes - can help. Home Remedies The following are said to give relief from nausea: 1. digestive enzymes (if is due to digestive issue) * 2. pro biotics - increasing, and or changing to different more effective strains* 3. a little fresh ginger in your tea or ginger ale (also good for tummy upsets)* 4. Fizzy soda* 5. peppermint/chamomile tea 6. short term use of peppermints* 7. 1tspn of apple cider vinegar with 1tspn of honey in a glass of water 8. boil half a cup of rice in half a cup of water for 20 mins strain and drink the rice water 9. half a tsp of ground cumin seed (what you would mix this in I am not sure - may be warm milk with a bit of honey and cinnamon?) 10. wheat germ in milk 11. increasing fibre in your diet - bananas, rice and apple sauce, grains, veg (but also increase the water to help your bowels) 12. encouraging a bowel movement/dissipation of gas * 13. smelling a freshly cut lemon 14. a little lemon or lime juice squeezed into a glass of water 15. clear broth 16. grazing on simple carbs (crackers, dry toast) or protein* 17. Charcoal tablets* 18. marijuana oil (on prescription) -if none of the above work* Dont have these ingredients handy? Try this: If you dont have any of the above ingredients in your cupboard, then try massaging the acupressure puncture point between the thumb and forefinger. That is supposed to reduce queasiness. Devices you can buy ''Sea Bands'' * They're wristbands that have a "bump" on the inside that is placed on an acupuncture point on the inside of your wrist for nausea relief. For painful bowel spasm and wind:* Finally, if you have bowel spasm and or wind - with or without nausea, I have found a glass of raspberry cordial works every time to stop wind and spasm very quickly. There is something in raspberries apparently that helps the gut.
