Once in a while, we have been nauseated. Feelings that are common when you are nauseated include feeling sweaty, dizzy, and shockingly hot or even feeling like vomiting. Being nauseated means that there is something wrong with your body, for example, it could be reacting to something you have taken, and the body wants to eliminate it. Nausea can be said to be a vague symptom of various health conditions such as a migraine, stomach disorder, heartburn, acid reflux, dehydration, motion sickness, morning sickness, infectious illness and food poisoning. Usually, most occasional nausea cases do not require you be attended by a doctor, home remedies can be of help to you. Going for natural remedies is advantageous because in some cases the medication prescribed by a medical practitioner may be hard on your body, leaving you not feeling any better.
Below are some home remedies for nausea
You can apply warmth on the stomach using a heating pad or a warm towel. There is always that soothing feeling that comes from the applied warmth. The warmth and heat distracts you from any stomach pain such as cramps, relaxes your muscles and reduces nausea. Be sure not to apply the warmth for a long time as this may damage your skin.
This is a quick option which can be used when you got no time to make tea or syrup for nausea reduction. A quick stop to the gag reflex can be achieved by you taking deep breaths. Sit in a quiet place and inhale through the nose and exhale through the mouth slowly. Do this repeatedly for a couple of times for the feeling to disappear.
Get some air
Your nausea could be requiring you to simply step outside for fresh air. You can also choose to calm your body by letting plenty of air flow over you, for example by sitting or lying under a fan. Letting that air blow gently over you can send away that sweaty and flushing feeling.
Replace any lost nutrients and fluids
You could have suffered from stomach illnesses or diarrhea and still nausea has not disappeared. This could have resulted to dehydration which means that you need to replace the fluid lost during the sickness. Drinking plenty of water can be an efficient and steadfast way to relieve your body from feeling nauseated.
Apply a cool compress on your neck, at the back. It is going to ease anxiety which could be the reason you are feeling nauseated.
Let it out
In most cases, nausea makes us feel like vomiting. Vomiting can be a way of getting rid of any different item that the body is trying to repel. When the urge to vomit comes, do not compress it but rather let it out. Compressing it may harm your esophagus because by doing so you are letting stomach acid to stay in your throat which may cause irritation.
