When you get nausea do you turn to over the counter nausea medicines because if you do you shouldn’t. There are several foods and healthy drinks out there you can use as an alternative nausea medicine for treating and relieving your nausea that work effectively if not better than some of the over the counter nausea medicines.
One of the most effective foods you can use as an alternative food medicine is ginger root. Ginger root contains substances in it called gingerols and shogaols. These substances help relieve inflammation and digestive discomforts such as gas and upset stomach that can sometimes cause nausea. Ginger also provides a warm soothing sensation to the stomach and helps calm it done so you don’t feel so nauseas. One of the best ways to take ginger root to help relieve nausea is by making a cup of ginger tea. You can also try sucking on a pieces of hard ginger root candy or take a supplement pill form of your choice. Heck you can even sip on some warm ginger ale and the would help relieve the nausea as well. I know it does for me anyways. The best time to help ease nausea away with ginger root is on an empty stomach right when you start to feel the nauseas feeling coming on.
Lemons also work with relieving nausea. Lemons contain neutralizing acids in them that help create bicarbonates in the stomach which helps relieve nausea cause by the flu, gas, bloating, heart burn, and upset stomach. The juice of the lemons help get the saliva going in your mouth more which helps relieve nausea as well. The best way to relieve nausea with lemons is either by sucking on pieces of sliced lemon until the nausea is gone, by squeezing some lemon juice in some warm or cold water and sipping on it, adding lemon juice to an herbal tea and sipping on it, or by simply sipping on a lemonade aid with crushed ice throughout it.
Sometimes nausea is caused by dehydration and water is sometimes all we need to cure nausea. The way you can use water to help relieve your nausea is by placing some crushed ice in cup and pouring some water into it and sipping on the ice cold water. The water will help hydrate you right back up so you don’t feel so nauseas anymore. Sometimes warm water honey and a lemon helps to because it helps hydrate and provide some sugar to your blood stream which also helps relieve the nauseas feelings you have. Sometimes just sucking or chewing crushed ice helps as well.
One of my personal favorite food remedies to use as an alternative nausea medicine is chicken broth. Chicken broth is salty and helps once again get that saliva going in your mouth which helps ease nasuease right away. The salty broth may even help get you to drink some more fluids such as water and juices to help get you hydrated again which again will help relieve nausea. Plus chicken broth contains a lot of potent nutrients in it such as vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that can help nourish your body and help give your belly a full feeling so you don’t feel so sick. Sometimes I like to even crumble up some salty crackers and toss them into the chicken broth and eat it slowly until my nausea is completely relieved. This usually works the best for me.
Another great food I like to use for easing my nausea right away are peppermint candies and candy canes. Peppermint provides the stomach with a cooling soothing sensation that helps relieve nausea almost instantly. When I don’t have candy canes or hard peppermint candies on hand I sip on peppermint teas and that helps a lot as well. However, it does take a couple piece of peppermint candy and peppermint tea to help relieve the nausea, but it does work well.
Pretzels are an excellent food to eat for treating your nausea. Pretzels are salty and help get that saliva going in your mouth. The more saliva you have in your mouth and swallow the better you tummy will feel cause saliva helps aid in digestion. Pretzels also contain carbohydrates in them which helps provides you body with a bit of energy so you are not feeling so tired and sluggish which can sometimes cause nausea. Pretzel even help make your belly feel full which eases the sick feeling you get when you are nauseas.
All natural fruit juice popsicles are another way I know of to help relieve nausea. They help hydrated and nourish the body so the nauseas feelings go away. They as well help create more saliva in the mouth to swallow. Plus fruit popsicles help cool you down from being way to hot or feverish. Being too hot and feverish can cause nausea.
One last drink I know of that can be used as an alternative nausea medicine is flat cola. Cola helps ease and upset stomach pretty well which relieves nausea. Cola is one of my favorite natural remedies for nausea cause it works well. Just make sure it isn’t really carbonated or it could make you feel sicker. Those who are sensitive to caffeine shouldn’t use cola to treat their nausea either because it will make nausea worse.
These are several great foods and drinks you can use as an alternative nausea medicine instead of those nasty over the counter nausea medicine. I wish you all the best of luck with easing your nausea right away naturally.
