If you have ever experienced feeling so dizzy that you have the sensation of throwing up, you know that you are having a bad case of nausea. Nausea often occurs when you are having some trouble in your stomach, such as indigestion. Nausea is the uneasy and uncomfortable feeling that arises from the stomach. Nausea can result from certain drugs. Nausea comes to a person whenever one comes across a dirty and unhygienic place. Nausea can also occur if a person is traveling in a fast driven car to a hill station through a zigzag road.

Nausea and vomiting can occur in both children and adults. Nausea is often indicative of an underlying condition elsewhere in the body. Nausea is also an adverse effect of many drugs. Nausea may also be an effect of a large intake of sugary foods.

Suffering with anxiety nausea is difficult for people with a panic attack disorder or an anxiety disorder. Most of the advice we all get from non-sufferers is to eat a saltine or just calm down already.

Protein: Protein is the best source of sustained energy and will be one of your biggest allies in preventing nausea. Eat some just before bed to avoid feeling queasy in the morning.

Ginger is the best natural and herbal remedy in case of severe nausea attacks. Effective research shows that the natural properties of ginger are the most effective agents for anti nausea. Ginger relaxes and soothes the human stomach and in the process combats nausea. It is safe and has no side effects too.

Digestive teas such as fennel, spearmint, and chamomile may also be of benefit if indigestion leads to your nausea.

An easy home remedy for nausea that costs nothing is acupressure to a special point on your wrist. It's called "P 6" (because it's the 6th point on the Pericardium acupuncture channel).

Another way to get rid of nausea is to eat crackers whenever you feel nauseous. Doctors suggest that if you eat a few low-fat crackers per day, it will help you get rid of nausea. Don't eat too much of crackers, though. While a few crackers are good for you, eating too many crackers will only worsen your situation.

Orange Peel: Perhaps the simplest of all these home remedies for nausea, but not necessarily the least effective. Peel an orange and bruise the skin by twisting and crushing it with your fingers. Hold the skin to your nose and sniff the scent.

Ginger Milk: Boil 250ml of fresh, whole milk, 25ml of ginger juice (made from crushing fresh ginger) and 25g of brown sugar for 10 minutes. Sip slowly while it's still hot.

Eat smaller meals: Eating in moderation will keep the blood sugar levels under control. Large fluctuations in blood sugar is known to cause nausea and vomiting.

B vitamins are recommended by many medical experts to ease nausea and vomiting --as many as 70 percent of women report nausea relief from either vitamin B6 alone or B6 in combination with the antihistamine doxylamine.

Have a snack before bedtime to try to keep blood sugar levels up during the night time. Low blood sugar levels are thought to be one reason why nausea can be worse in the morning after not having eaten for many hours. Nuts or a protein bar and a glass of milk would be ideal.
