How to Stop Nausea Without Medicine

Save

Nausea is depicted by the compulsive urge to vomit, a queasy stomach, or pains in the abdominals. Many experience nausea symptoms and suffer with these feelings on a daily basis. While over-the-counter medicines are available to treat nausea symptoms, home remedies can provide symptom relief without the inconvenience of leaving home.

Things You'll Need

  • Club soda
  • Salty crackers
  • Ice pack
  • Tea bags
  • Ginger

Crackers and Club Soda

  • Consume two 8-oz. glasses of club soda within a 20-minute interval. Club soda will help calm the acidity levels in the stomach; high acidity levels may contribute to an upset stomach and additional bloating in the abdomen.

  • Munch on four salty crackers slowly. The crackers will provide a light coating in the stomach to absorb acids. However, if more than four crackers are consumed, they may upset the stomach even more and contribute to the nausea.

  • Wrap an ice pack inside a small towel. Make sure to wrap only a few times, so coldness is still felt on the skin. Place the ice pack on the back of the neck. This will cool and regulate the body's temperature.

Ginger Tea

  • Place one tea bag into a mug and fill the mug with water. Try using an herbal green tea. Green tea contains antioxidants that enable the body to resist infection and other health complications.

  • Microwave water on high for about a minute and a half. Steep the tea until the hot water turns dark brown and discard the used tea bag.

  • Measure 2 tsp. of ginger and mix into the tea for one minute. Ginger is commonly used to treat nausea because it increases the appetite and eliminates the seepage of acids in the stomach.

  • Consume this ginger tea as often as needed for nausea relief.

Tips & Warnings

  • Avoid sugary carbonated beverages, such as Coke, Sprite, and energy drinks.These may cause the stomach to become more upset. If a beverage contains a high level of sugar, this may complicate the digestive tract and increase symptoms of nausea.
  • Drink the ginger tea as needed, twice if nausea persists after first cup.
  • Tea may be hot when removing from microwave. To avoid burns, allow tea to cool before consuming.
