It is always annoying to wake up to a feeling of being sick and nauseated. But don’t worry if nausea has been taking the better of you nowadays. If you have had a rough time trying to get rid of nausea, whatever its causes, you are in luck. This article will give you common and easy-to-prepare home remedies that can save you from this awful feeling.


1. Use a Ginger

Appearing first on my list is an all-time home remedy, Ginger. It is the kind of remedy that can be consumed as ginger ale, tea, or even in its raw form. It is a substance that assists the digestion system and restores normal body function. Ginger works by reducing hyperactivity in the stomach which is a common cause for nausea.

2 inches of a ginger root

You will need…

  • Some honey
  • A knife
  • A chopping board
  • 3 cups of water
  • Wax paper


  1. Start by washing the ginger root before peeling it.
  2. Then slice the ginger root into small pieces and then cover the slices with wax paper.
  3. Continue crushing them into extra small pieces.
  4. Boil the 3 cups of water to a medium temperature before adding the ginger and boiling further for about 5 minutes.
  5. Finally, strain the mixture and pour the liquid into a mug.

You can choose to add honey before, slowly sipping the drink while you relax. This will definitely make that nausea fade away.

2. Milk Toast

Milk and bread form part of the bland foods that are useful towards taming your stomach. The bread in the milk toast helps by absorbing the extra acid as the milk coats your stomach walls against the acid.

The only downside to this remedy is that it is not recommended for patients with stomach flu. Apart from that, milk toast can really come in handy, especially when you get nausea from using over the counter drugs. Here is how to go about it.

You will need…

  • A cup of milk
  • A piece of toast
