Keep these 3 medicinal plants at hand and never worry about nausea and threw up

This problem is more common than you might think. It can be caused by strong odors, type of food and some medications

Threw up and dizziness can be caused by excitement and nervousness, stomach upset/gastrointestinal infections, due to motion sickness from a car or boat trip (motion sickness), migraine, food intolerances, certain medications, as a side effect of anesthesia and chemotherapy, or from pregnancy.


One could say that the origin of nausea is in the head. In our brain stem there is "a vomiting center" that is in constant communication with the cerebellum, the gastrointestinal tract and the organs of balance. Information is received through the sense of smell and blood.

To control this problem, there are different natural options that you can apply at the time of any of the symptoms. If this problem persists, it is advisable to see a doctor.

Aniseed, fennel, caraway

Aniseed (Pimpinella anisum), fennel (Foeniculum vulgare) and caraway (Carum carvi) belong to the same family of plants. The seeds of the umbelliferae have an antibacterial, anticonvulsant effect and relieve nausea, for example, in case of food intolerance.

The sweet taste makes aniseed infusion popular with children. Caraway is sour for many adults; this is why the three plants are usually combined.

It is important to note that they should not give exclusively aniseed and fennel infusions, they should not be drunk every day nor should they be given daily to children under two years of age.


Basil and lavender.

Chewing two or three leaves of fresh basil (Ocinum basilicum) has proven to be effective on nausea of various types. The aromatic herb calms the stomach, nausea and clears the mind.

Lavender (Lavandula officinalis), as an infusion, or in the form of a few drops of essential oil to inhale, can be useful for nausea, dizziness and circulation problems.



Ginger (Zingiber officinale), fresh, as an infusion, as an herbal and dietetic preparation, or even in sweets, is a good remedy for nausea. Not only does it soothe the stomach; the root has a number of highly active ingredients that fight nausea from its source. Recent research by Heidelberg scientists has shown that ginger inhibits certain messengers from the vomit center (they act by inhibiting nausea, like synthetic products). Thus, the vomit center is not activated and nausea does not occur.

According to the study conducted by Beate Niesler and her colleagues and published in the journal Neurogastroenterology and Motility, ginger can be effective even in nausea caused by chemotherapy. It is also useful in conditions that occur as a result of taking certain medications.

In the case of conditions caused by movement, the root has long proven effective. Even sailors use it because they know its good properties.
