Nausea is defined as an uneasy feeling in the stomach that makes you feel as if you need to vomit. It can be associated with other symptoms such as clammy skin and feeling lightheaded.
Whether it’s caused by motion sickness, an illness, pregnancy or cancer treatment, nausea can be debilitating.
Regardless of the cause, if you or a loved one is experiencing nausea, there are a few ways to ease the discomfort associated with it. Here are five ways that can potentially help you find relief from your symptoms:
Try either sitting or lying propped up while keeping your head elevated. Regardless of which position you choose, avoid crunching your stomach. Try not to move around so you don’t exacerbate the symptoms.
Sometimes, stepping outside and breathing in some fresh air can make a difference. While you are outside, try practicing controlled and deep breathing to help relieve the symptoms.
Make sure you are staying hydrated. Try slowly drinking clear liquids or cold drinks. Lemon water and peppermint tea can both soothe symptoms of nausea. Because carbonated beverages can make nausea worse, steer clear of soda.
If you want to try munching on something, go for bland foods — preferably at room temperature. You can try saltines, bread, plain pasta or mashed potatoes.
When you are feeling nauseated, avoid foods that are acidic, sweet, fried or greasy because they can upset your stomach even more.
Sometimes, nausea does progress to vomiting. When that occurs, you can become tired and dehydrated quickly from losing fluids and nutrients. When the fluid loss is great, sometimes just sipping on liquids is not enough to replenish what was lost.
