Whether it’s caused by food poisoning, a stomach bug, morning sickness, or something that just doesn’t agree with your stomach, nausea is no fun. Fortunately, there are many ways to treat it. These drinks that help relieve nausea can soothe your stomach when nothing else sits right.
Remedies can range from prescribed medications to resting and letting it run its course to treating it with home remedies that incorporate food and drink. For those looking to go the more natural, home-remedy route, there are several drinks that are recommended for relieving nausea.
Just a simple glass of cold water can do the trick. Additionally, warm, herbal teas such as ginger and peppermint are also good for soothing the stomach. And even drinking soda works for some. These drinks that help relieve nausea may be able to help better and faster than other remedies will.
One of the most reliable ways to relieve nausea is by slowly sipping a glass of ice water.
2. Ginger Ale and Ginger Tea
Ginger is commonly recommended for soothing nausea because it contains substances called gingerols and shogaols, which help relieve inflammation and digestive discomforts such as gas and an upset stomach. Ginger also provides a soothing sensation in the stomach.
Peppermint is another herb that that is soothing to the stomach and is said to relieve nausea almost instantly.
Other herbal teas in addition to ginger and peppermint can also help relieve nausea. Some that are recommended include slippery elm, red raspberry, feverfew, barberry, catnip, alfalfa, chamomile, mint, or licorice.
Lemon juice and lemonade are good remedies for nausea because lemons contain neutralizing acids, which form bicarbonates, compounds that help relieve nausea. The juice from the lemon also stirs up the saliva in your mouth, also helping to relieve nausea. (Note: Citrus can be a migraine trigger for some; track it and be sure it’s safe for you).
As strange as it may sound, drinking baking soda dissolved in water is one way to cure nausea, but if you have medical issues, you should check with a doctor before using this remedy. It’s recommended to mix half a teaspoon of baking soda into a 4-ounce glass of water.
While drinking soda can be soothing to the stomach for some, its carbonation can be irritating for others. (Note: watch the caffeine and avoid migraine-triggering artificial sweeteners if possible).
It’s worth stocking up on these on your next trip to the market — before nausea strikes.
