Answer: Hello dear. Here are home remedies that help you get rid of nausea without using medications:- Ginger is a popular natural remedy commonly used to treat nausea. Peppermint Aromatherapy-Peppermint aromatherapy is another alternative likely to help reduce nausea. Those exposed to a peppermint smell rated their level of nausea significantly lower than those given anti-nausea medications or a placebo  Try Acupuncture or Acupressure-Acupuncture and acupressure are two techniques commonly used in traditional Chinese medicine to treat nausea and vomiting. Slice a Lemon-Citrusy smells, such as those from a freshly sliced lemon, may help reduce nausea in pregnant women. Control Your Breathing-Taking slow, deep breaths can also help reduce nausea. Use Certain Spices-Several spices are popular home remedies often recommended to combat nausea. Fennel powder: May reduce menstrual symptoms, including nausea, and help women experience shorter periods. Cinnamon: May reduce the severity of nausea that women experience during menstruation. Cumin extract: May help improve symptoms such as abdominal pain, nausea, constipation and diarrhea in individuals suffering from IBS. Take a Vitamin B6 Supplement Vitamin B6 is increasingly recommended as an alternative treatment for pregnant women preferring to avoid anti-nausea medications. Some common tricks to avoid nausea:- Avoid spicy or fatty foods: A blander diet made up of foods such as bananas, rice, applesauce, crackers or baked potatoes may relieve nausea and decrease the likelihood of an upset stomach. Add protein to your meals: Protein-rich meals may fight off nausea better than meals high in fat or carbs. Avoid large meals: Opting for smaller, more frequent meals when you're feeling nauseated may help reduce your symptoms. Stay upright after you eat: Some people are more likely to experience reflux or become nauseous if they lie down within 30 to 60 minutes following a meal. Avoid drinking with meals: Drinking any liquids with meals may increase feelings of fullness, which may worsen nausea in some individuals. Stay hydrated: Dehydration can worsen nausea. If your nausea is accompanied by vomiting, replace your lost fluids with electrolyte-rich fluids such as flat mineral water, vegetable broth or a sports drink. Avoid strong smells: These may worsen nausea, especially during pregnancy. Avoid iron supplements: Pregnant women with normal iron levels should avoid taking iron supplements during the first trimester because they may worsen feelings of nausea . Exercise: Aerobic exercise and yoga may be particularly helpful ways to reduce nausea in some individuals  Hope this helps.
