Remedies, treatments and care for Nausea
Morning sickness, also called nausea and vomiting of pregnancy (NVP), is a symptom of pregnancy that involves nausea or vomiting.
Nausea is a sensation of unease and discomfort in the upper stomach with an involuntary urge to vomit. It may precede vomiting, but a person can have nausea without vomiting. Some common causes of nausea are motion sickness, dizziness, migraine, fainting, low blood sugar, gastroenteritis (stomach infection) or food poisoning.
You body uses vomiting to get rid of poisons and toxins that have been ingested. This could be food that has gone bad, drinking too much alcohol, an allergic reaction to food, ingesting poison, or virus. In most cases, vomiting will stop without specific medical treatment. The most important point to remember when you are suffering from vomiting is to keep yourself hydrated.
