Natural remedies for Nausea
Nausea, treat naturally!
In this article I am going to discuss about natural remedies for Nausea, a stomach distress with distaste for food and an urge to throw up. Nausea generally occurs along with stomach ache, vomiting, headaches, stomach discomfort, feeling of restlessness, etc.
Nausea is a vague symptom, which can be caused by many diseases or illnesses or conditions. The treatment for Nausea depends on the causes. Generally, it occurs due to stomach problems. It is not a disease, but it may occur as a symptom due to a health condition. It may also be a symptom of serious diseases like heart attack, jaundice, kidney disorders, and sometimes related to chemotherapy, etc. In any case it is highly advisable to seek the help of a Medical Doctor before going with any home remedies.
