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.

  • Awesome!

    star

    Self Heal Swedish Bitters is the Kiwi version of a very old and well proven herbal tincture.

    Bitters have been eliminated from our taste spectrum and as such most people will find it shockingly strong and bitter. Worry not, bitter flavour is what gets your Liver up and running.

    Pretty much everyone should take a 500ml bottle of this stuff in the spring season to help your body do a "spring clean".

    Take this stuff to cleanse your Liver and Large Intestine with a diet high in good soluble fibers. After that, your body will be able to heal itself of it's own accord.

  • DID NOT WORK!

    star

    After loading up with three boxes of these convinced they were going to help my daughter not suffer from Travel Sickness they did not. She flew to the UK on Monday and threw up violently on both flights so would not recommend. She took these in conjunction with The Ginger People Gin Gins Super Strength Ginger Candy which I was also convinced would work - and they didn't. :(

  • Great first food for baby

    star

    I used BioBalance Pure Slippery Elm Powder mixed with breastmilk as a first food for my 6 month old baby. After a couple of days we moved to pureed veggies and I added this slippery elm powder to them to help keep baby regular. We've also started adding it to smoothies for us and our toddler.
