Remedies & Tips to Stop Vomiting and Nausea

Your brain, not your stomach, tells your body when to vomit. Vomiting is often your body’s way of purging a contaminated substance. It's also possible to feel queasy and not vomit. Although in some cases, nausea goes away after vomiting.

Whether it's a hangover, motion sickness, or a bug, most remedies for vomiting are universal. Read on for ways to stop vomiting and nausea.

Try deep breathing

Take deep breaths by breathing air through your nose and into your lungs. Your abdomen should expand as you breath in. Exhale slowly through your mouth or nose and relax your belly after each breath. Repeat this several times. You can use the image below to help pace yourself.

taking deep, controlled breaths from the diaphragm activates the parasympathetic nervous system. This helps keep the biological response that causes motion sickness in check. Deep breathing also helps calm anxiety that may occur when you’re feeling sick.

Eat bland crackers

Dry crackers like saltines are a tried-and-true remedy for morning sickness. It’s thought they help absorb stomach acids. For morning sickness, try eating a few crackers about 15 minutes before getting out of bed to help settle your stomach. Other bland foods like dry toast or white rice are also good to eat while recovering from a stomach bug.

Wrist acupressure

Acupressure is a popular traditional Chinese medicine remedy. It uses pressure to stimulate certain points on the body to relieve symptoms. Applying pressure to pressure point Neiguan (P-6), a spot on the palm side of the forearm near your wrist, may help relieve nausea and vomiting.

To massage this pressure point:

1. Place three fingers across the wrist.

2. Put your thumb under your index finger.

3. Rub this point in a firm, circular motion for two to three minutes.

4. Repeat on the other wrist.

Drink more fluids

If you’re vomiting a lot, it’s critical to drink plenty of fluids to help prevent dehydration, even if you vomit some of them back up. Sip the fluids slowly. Drinking too much when your stomach is upset may cause more vomiting.

Fluids that help keep you hydrated and may ease nausea are:

-ginger ale

-mint tea

-lemonade

-water

Try ginger, fennel, or cloves

-Sipping a cup of warm ginger tea when nausea strikes. Or slowly eat a small piece of fresh ginger root or candied ginger.

-Fennel seeds are thought to help calm the digestive tract. But scientific studies on fennel for vomiting are lacking. Still, anecdotal evidence suggests it may be worth sipping a cup of fennel tea the next time nausea strikes.

-Cloves are a folk remedy for nausea and vomiting caused by motion sickness. They also contain eugenol, a compound thought to have antibacterial abilities. To make clove tea, add one cup of boiling water to a teaspoon or so of cloves. Steep for ten minutes, and strain before drinking.
