2 Amazing Alternative Medicine Therapies for Nausea and Vomiting
There are a great many reasons for feelings of nausea, or actual vomiting. Often this is a temporary reaction, for example to over-eating drinking, food poisoning, a gastric infection, violent coughing, travel sickness, or associated with a migraine; if nausea or vomiting is persistent, then professional help is essential. Children in particular can easily become dehydrated from repeatedly vomiting.
These alternative medicine therapies are top notch when it comes to treating nausea and vomiting.
Herbalism for nausea and vomiting
The remedy of first choice is probably Ginger; either take frequent sips of a weak tea, or of 10 drops of tincture in a little water, or chew a small piece of fresh ginger. Another possibility – say, for travel sickness – is to chew a little crystallized ginger, or drink flat ginger ale. Other potentially useful herbs to settle the stomach are Chamomile, Lemon Balm and Peppermint; try weakish herb teas. All these herbs aid digestion generally, and ease flatulence, so can help to sort out the causes of nausea as well as the symptoms themselves.
Aromatherapy for nausea and vomiting
Warm compresses over the stomach may be of help. Choose from oils of Chamomile, Lavender or Peppermint, up to 5 drops in a small bowl of water. Taking 1 drop only of oil of Cloves or Peppermint, n a sugar lump, may help to directly settle the stomach. A useful oil to spray around the sick room is Lemon, this is not only helpful to allay feelings of nausea but also is much fresher smelling and less sickly than some oils, so will be generally appreciated by the household.
