Nausea Info

“I do not keep a diary. Never have. To write a diary every day is like returning to one's own vomit.”

Enoch Powell

  
Nausea is a sensation of unease and discomfort in the upper stomach with an involuntary urge to vomit. It comes from the Latin term: nausea, from Greek “nausia,” which means "feeling sick.”

Nausea may or may not lead to vomiting and can be accompanied by dizziness and fainting.  Nausea has many possible causes. 

Some common causes are overindulgence in rich fatty food, motion sickness, migraine, gastroenteritis (stomach infection), intestinal parasites, alcohol or food poisoning. Environmental toxins like traffic or factory pollution can bring on nausea.

Nausea may also be caused by anxiety, disgust, nervousness, stress and depression.

Food poisoning usually causes an abrupt onset of nausea and vomiting one to six hours after ingestion of contaminated food and lasts for one to two days.  It is due to toxins produced by bacteria in food.

"Morning sickness" is associated with nausea and is common during early pregnancy (but occasionally it continues into the second and third trimesters. In the first trimester nearly 80% of women have some degree of nausea. Pregnancy should therefore be considered as a possible cause of nausea in any women of child bearing age.  It is usually mild and self-limiting but occasionally severe cases known as hyperemesis gravidarum may require treatment.

A number of conditions involving balance and inner ear disorders such as motion sickness and vertigo can lead to nausea and vomiting.  

Nausea can be a side effect of many medications, particularly including anaesthetic and chemotherapy drugs. 

Reliable herbal treatments for nausea include ginger, kawakawa, peppermint, chamomile, slippery elm, red raspberry leaf, fennel and many more.

Product Reviews

  • Great natural digestive support

    star

    I used to use an alternative brand of slippery elm powder, that was considerably more expensive. Then I found this Biobalance product at a much better price, and I find it works just as well. I find it is very useful, maintaining bowel regularity for myself.
