home remedies for vomiting

Asian cultures discovered the healing properties of ginger centuries ago and have been using it to ease digestive problems since time immemorial. Take a piece of ginger root and chew on it to ease vomiting. Ginger is a natural anti-emetic. If you cannot stand the taste of ginger, take a spoon of honey while chewing it.

Mint Leaves:

Rather than going for ready-made herbal teas to stop throwing up, brew a cup of mint tea! This can be done by steeping some dried mint leaves in a cup of boiling water for an hour. Strain and consume. Alternatively, you can chew on fresh mint leaves to ease vomiting.

Vinegar:

Sounds strange, I know. But vinegar can surely ease vomiting. Trust me when I tell you that it is quite effective. Of course, be sure to avoid smelling it, as the overwhelming odour of vinegar will force you to rush to the bathroom to give respite to your heaving stomach! Take a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar and dilute it with half a cup of water. Use this solution to rinse your mouth. This will prevent you from throwing up and also get rid of that stale taste in your mouth.

Cinnamon:

Cinnamon is known to be an effective home remedy for vomiting and nausea. That is why it is often given to women who are in their first trimester when morning sickness can hit hard. Take a small piece of cinnamon stick and steep in a cup of boiling water for about 10 minutes. Remove the stick and sweeten the cinnamon tea with some honey. A tablespoon should do fine. Sip the tea slowly. Drink at least three times a day to cure vomiting.
