Nausea

Symptom

Is there anything worse than that queasy, clammy feeling that comes with nausea? It’s hard to think, it’s hard to relax, and sometimes you wish you would puke so you could feel better. Persistent nausea is common with many conditions and their treatments, including illnesses like Lyme and viruses like Epstein-Barr. If you’re on antibiotics, nausea is definitely on the table. Nausea is also a commonly reported symptom of electromagnetic field (EMF) sensitivity, and may be linked to small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) and parasite infections. Fortunately, easy-to-find herbs like peppermint, chamomile, and ginger can help quell this symptom. If you’re dealing with nausea, it helps to keep these herbs close at hand! Massage and stress reduction can also help. Remember, if you’re feeling nauseous, it’s okay to step back from whatever you’re doing and rest. The nausea may not pass right away, but give yourself a moment to breathe. Don’t feel like you have to “power through”—that’s way easier said than done. With nausea (and chronic illness in general!), it’s okay to take 5 when you need it.
