perferably something you can find at your local drug store.

Hi anoyed.  A couple of things that can help with nasuea are ginger capsules and papaya tablets.  When I had severe nausea, I could not handle the smell of ginger but the papaya tablets usually helped.  You can get both at most healthfood stores.  I hope they help!

Homeopathy I have found helpful for nausea (available in many health food stores, some drug stores):

Nux V. - helps me with the vague or general nauseated feeling and indigestion/ate too much sensation.

Ipecac. (NOT the syrup!) - helps me with the "hand me the bucket, I'm going to be sick right now" sensation.

Also helpful: sipping ginger tea or ginger ale (make sure there is real ginger in it), peppermint (chewing gum, sniffing the oil, sipping peppermint tea, etc.), resting in a comfortable position, anti-nausea wrist bands (for motion sickness, but can help nausea from many other causes), and/or watching a movie or something to take my mind off the nausea. You might also try antihistamines like Benadryl or Claritin, or even motion sickness medications like Dramamine.

Prescriptions: Phenergan, Reglan, Ondansetron (generic Zofran), TransDerm-Scop (Scopolamine patch), etc.

I hope you find something that helps soon. Take care,

when I'm foolish enough to let my therapy outstrip my detoxing, and my Herx nausea sets in, I jump in the sauna immediately, sweat it out for about 20-25 minutes, then take two Dramamine, and get in bed.  This system works well for me.  :-)
