Are my stomach problems significant?


Nausea - A couple of drops of peppermint oil in honey can soothe this; in an emergency, just inhale the peppermint and surprisingly the nausea often recedes quickly. Liquid Maalox also helps. In a pinch, try eating something starchy that will absorb excess stomach acid – it often relieves the nausea as well. It seems perverse to recommend that someone who is nauseated eat something – but think about pregnant women with morning sickness and how they get relief by eating soda crackers. An over the counter liquid called Emetrol is also pretty effective at controlling nausea although it tastes pretty foul.

Ginger is great for helping to alleviate the nausea: candy, tea, soup, etc.
