    Default Helpful Hints for Nausea/IBS

    Hello all... Here are my tips for curbing nausea. I hope they work for you.

    1. Put a few drops of peppermint oil in ice water and drink it (alternately, make some peppermint tea)
    2. Go for a walk
    3. Slowly chew on some pickled ginger root
    4. Smoke some herb
    5. Listen to some meditation tracks or ambient music (like this one)
    6. Deep breathing
    7. Heat some water, soak a small towel or washcloth in it, and use it as a hot compress on your abdominal region
    8. If you can, turn the AC up or turn on a small fan to cool down

    If you have some tried-and-true tips for dealing with stomach aches and digestive woes, post 'em below!
    Over 40 years ago, we were passing through South Carolina - possibly on our way to Florida.
    For reasons unknown to this day, we were shot to death, execution style, on the side of a dirt road.
    We were a young couple, probably in our early to mid-20s, and may have been French Canadian.
    Our identities have never been established.
    So... Who were we?

    Fresh air.

    It's pretty crazy but true. I take medication that makes me sick AF-it's been compared to chemo sickness or a hang over-none of the tried and true methods help, not even "Some herb" does a thing but opening a window and getting some fresh COOL air almost immediately improves the nausea.

    Hot water bottle or electric heating pad.

    I have trouble sleeping on a full stomach. So when I'm occasionally passing out from exhaustion after a big meal, I strap an electric heating pad to my stomach with a cloth belt, set it on high, and then I can sleep like a charm. With the extra heat, apparently my stomach digests great even in my sleep.

    Ginger's good. Also, nowadays there's a whole array of antacids and other OTC stomach meds for common stomach upsets.

    I don't know if other people have done it, but I drink lemon juice water to help my stomach after a hangover with terrible nausea. I wouldn't say it cures it, but takes away the feeling of it. Then if you throw up, it doesn't taste terrible. xD

    Be careful with that. Earlier this year, my grandmother fell asleep with a heating pad; it heated her bra clasp and left a burn. Also there might be a cancer risk with those things.

    As for the cancer risk: They've been studying the cancer risk of heating pads and electric blankets for decades and still haven't found any connection. So I use both. But if anyone else is worried, use a hot water bottle.

    I'll grant the danger of burns from metal parts. I mentioned that I strap the heating pad to my stomach using a web belt. The web belt has a metal belt buckle, and when that buckle is in contact with the heating pad it gets almost too hot to touch. The pad itself doesn't seem overly hot, but somehow the metal of the buckle really soaks up the heat. It's worth cautioning anyone playing with such things for the first time.

    Peppermint Altoids. I care them around on me all the time (I'm emetophobic) and I've found they help soothe an upset stomach.
