A note about Possible Causes of Nausea - Common Triggers
In natural health and healing, we believe in holistic health and healing, as we realize that different parts of the human body are highly interlinked, often beyond Man's understanding. We also believe that the body has the ability to heal itself of any disease, even supposedly incurable diseases.
In order to do so, the body needs the support of some basic dietary and lifestyle good health habits, such as a full body detox and a proper understanding and application of nutrition. No matter how remote or unrelated a health condition may seem, these fundamental health steps will greatly magnify the effects and benefits of any of our health-promoting efforts, including the use of specific natural health remedies.
Pregnancy is one of the most common causes of this ailment. Although nobody is exactly sure why nausea develops during early pregnancy, it probably has something to do with the influx of hormones that a woman experiences. So-called "morning sickness" can occur at anytime throughout the day and may or may not be accompanied by vomiting.
Food poisoning is another of the common causes of nausea, and is usually accompanied by vomiting. In most cases, nausea occurs directly after eating a meal if it is food poisoning. However, in cases that involve salmonella, symptoms might take longer to show up.
Although it might be unpleasant, it is usually better to let the nausea run its course, so that your stomach can empty itself of the contents that are making it sick.
Stress and Anxiety
Anxiety and stress can be culprits in nausea as well. If you find that you tend to get nauseated in a stressful situation, then learning some stress managing techniques, such as meditation and deep breathing exercises, might help you relax enough so that the nausea does not occur.
Side Effects of Medications
Reactions to certain medication are also one of the causes of nausea. This is particularly true of strong pain medications and some antibiotics. Make sure that you read any medication labels before you take anything. You might need to take the medication on an empty stomach, or on a full stomach, in order to forgo the nausea.
You can also talk to your doctor about natural methods of pain relief without resorting to pain medication if you feel more comfortable.
Motion sickness is another of the causes of nausea, and it can bring nausea to quite a few people. Some people find that they are unable to ride in the backseat of a car without feeling sick. Others have difficulty with nausea if they are unable to see out a window.
It's important to know what you can do to make yourself more comfortable in these situations. Most health food stores also sell arm bracelets that help with nausea that is triggered by motion, and these can be a good natural way of combating the sickness.
Infections can often cause stomach cramps, abdominal pain, and nausea. Viral infections such as the rotavirus can cause nausea, as can infections by the bacteria in H. Pylori. Parasitic infections might also cause diarrhea, as well as be causes of nausea and vomiting.
Treatment and Relief
In most cases, nausea can be alleviated with natural methods. However, if there is vomiting present, then it is important not to become dehydrated, which is a very serious condition. If you find that you are vomiting excessively, then it is important to try to hold down liquids, even if it means sucking on a Popsicle if you are unable to drink any water or juice.
If the vomiting continues with treatment, then you should pay a visit to your doctor in order to ensure that there isn't something serious going on.
Do you now have a better idea of some possible causes of nausea? This should help you in your attempts to tackle this condition. To learn more about remedies and treatments for relief from this ailment, read the other related nausea articles and pages on this website.
