3 Natural Remedies For Nausea That Really Work

Anyone who deals with nausea on regularly knows that it is one of the worst feelings in the world. I have vertigo and it’s something I wouldn’t wish on anyone because the feeling is horrible and debilitating. I don’t like taking medicine when I feel nauseous because I always think it’s going to make things worse. On that note, here are three at-home remedies for nausea.

1. Ginger. I carry ginger capsules in my bag at all times just in case I feel sick during the day. Ginger is a natural remedy for nausea and stomachaches. It’s unclear exactly how ginger helps with nausea, but it’s proven effective. In fact, the Chinese have used ginger to treat many issues for over two thousand years. A lot of doctors even recommend ginger to cancer patients who experience nausea from chemotherapy treatments.

2. Peppermint. In both oil and leaf form, peppermint is great for easing nausea and settling your stomach. Since it’s calming and numbing, it allows your stomach to relax and that allows the bile in your stomach to break down fats and food. You can suck on peppermint candy or apply peppermint oil to your skin.

3. Acupressure. If you experience nausea, it might be highly beneficial to learn acupressure, which is very similar to acupuncture. Acupressure is when finger pressure is used to stimulate trigger points on the body. By pressing these trigger points, you’ll release muscle tension and increase blood flow. You should focus on the point P6, which is on the inside of your wrist. Use your thumb and forefinger to apply pressure in a circular motion for 2-3 minutes.
