Top Foods to Consume to Fight Off Nausea

When we get to say that you have the urge to vomit, the first thing that comes to our mind is that the patient must be expecting. While it’s true that it’s one of the most common symptoms when you’re pregnant, but let’s be realistic in a sense that not all stomach bugs with vomiting symptoms pertains to pregnancy. If anything, feeling nauseous and the urge to vomit can signify a lot of stomach bugs and illness our body may be experiencing. Nausea is a nasty symptom to deal with especially if you’re out in the public and you need to be presentable when dealing with your coworkers and customers. How do we deal with this? Here are our top recommended foods to consume in order to fight off the nauseous feeling you’re having.

Water

We’ll never get tired of reiterating how important water in our life is. Water is a source of life since 70% of our body is made from it. It helps you stay hydrated so that your body will be able to function well. Aside from that, water can help ease your digestive tract which lessen your likelihood to have nausea. Settle your stomach with a cool glass of water in sips – or all the way down.

Nuts

If you felt like munching some foods just to kill your nauseous’ symptom, then we definitely recommend you to eat nuts. Nuts contains proteins that helps counter the effects of nausea. You can also restore your energy levels (which has been depleted from vomiting and dehydration) when you eat pistachios, almonds, and peanuts. And what’s more? They’re also packed with nutrients because it’s a great source for healthy fat foods. You can even go for a butter, if you like a smoother texture. Just a precaution though, those patients with peanut allergy must avoid this at all costs.

Bananas

Bananas are an excellent source of potassium, which can help restores your energy levels and depletes your dehydration and vomiting. Bananas are usually the food recommended to help you ease back into eating solids again.

Apple

If you don’t like banana, then apple should do the trick for you. Apples are rich in fiber that helps flush our nausea-inducing chemicals out of your system. And we also know how fibers help promote healthy digestion. Moreover, we all go by the phrase “an apple a day keeps the doctor away”, so we really recommend you to eat this powerful and nutritious fruit.  It can also be eaten in the form of applesauce, apple juice if digesting solid food requires too much effort. Apple cider vinegar can also help; just mix a teaspoon of it with honey in a cup of water, then drink this at least four times daily.

Crackers, bits and pieces of bread, and toast can help lower down your acidity and eases queasy stomachs. It is best eaten in the morning before you start your day. Keep this close by for times when the churning in your stomach becomes uncontrollable.
