How to cope with nausea?

By  |  0 Comments
Nausea can make you feel miserable. Unfortunately several things can trigger it off. Nausea may be caused by infections or medications. To help manage nausea and vomiting, yet make sure that you get enough nutrients  here are some tips:

  • Opt for six to eight small meals a day rather than three large ones.
  • Go for bland foods (not too spicy, greasy or sweet), that aren’t too hot or cold.
  • Between meals, sip cool drinks such as fruit juices, sports drinks and nutritional shakes. If you’ve lost fluids through vomiting this helps. Avoid drinking fluids with meals.
  • To relieve nausea, try dry toast, plain biscuits and cereal as these are are often easy to keep down.
  • Relax for half an hour after eating, but wait at least an hour before lying down. Recline, rather than lie down, if you have to.
  • Avoid working with food: cooking smells and the sight and smell of raw food can trigger nausea.
  • Ask your doctor about anti-nausea medication.

After more than a decade in the corporate corporate work, I retired from my corporate career at 33 to focus on family. A change in priorities, and a passion for writing inspired me to start working from home and I am now living my dream as a writer and editor. I write content for clients, blog for businesses and edit manuscripts for publishers/authors. With six blogs of my own and published contributions across the web (The Huffington Post, PTPA, World of Moms, SheKnows), I writes to collect smiles and donate to charities. I shares stories about all the things I enjoy in life; parenting, mindful living, conversations, coffee, books, food, music, health, DIY, travel, photography and showing my diabetes who’s boss.
