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.

  • Lovely flavour

    star

    These are the best chamomile teabags I have used - even hubby who is not a fan of herbal teas, thoroughly enjoys drinking this tea. There is no strong "paper teabag" aftertaste and I several friends have requested the brand name.

  • Fantastic early stage cold prevention

    star

    We always keep a bottle for winter time and as soon as we feel like a cold or other virus is getting hold in our bodies, we slug back some Bush Bitters. Nine times out of ten it works. You have to take it right at the early stages though.

  • The BEST remedy for travel sickness

    star

    This product is so great I even buy it online from the UK as it is not available there.

    I get really sick on most forms of transport. 20 minutes is the most I can last on a bus. I first found @ease on a trip to NZ in 2004 and it was liberating. Since then I have been able to travel the world on small group adventure holidays with my trusty @ease where previously I could only do centre-based holidays. One tablet lasts for 6-8 hours and they don't make you drowsy at all. All other homeopathic remedies for travel sickness I've come across only last for 1 hour and all medicines send you to sleep, and most don't work well anyway. @ease has kept me travelling without missing the scenery for 13 years now, and I've also used it to counter the nausea caused by some forms of maleria tablets.

    Thank you SO much, Healthpost - PLEASE keep stocking it so I can keep travelling. NZ is definitely on my return list.
