– Citrus or lemon has a characteristic aroma and taste that can eliminate nausea. Mix equal parts lemon juice and honey to relieve nausea.

– Regulating your breathing can work wonders when you’re stuck with nausea. Take slow and deep breaths and they can calm you down.

– Chewing 1-2 cardamom seeds can reduce the tendency to vomit.

– If you feel tired after vomiting, try a solution of sugar and salt that provides the benefits of ORS. You can also drink coconut water.

– Put 1 teaspoon of cinnamon powder in water, bring to the boil and strain. Add a few drops of honey and try to drink it frequently (contraindicated for pregnant women).
