Im on multiple antibiotic treatments.

I am having trouble with the constant nausea. If I take anit-vomiting meds and other nausea meds I get all sorts of negative reactions; such as constipation and toxic liver flushes.

What do others do while on a antibiotic treatment?

Thanks! idea

Ginger tea
Peppermint tea
Homeopathic Nux Vomica

Make sure you are eating things that do not irritate the lining of the stomach, such as spicy food, caffeine (coffee, chocolate, some soda pops), highly acidic foods (tomato products, vinegar, alcoholic beverages, etc.), and anything else you know bothers your stomach.

I hope this helps - take care,

Are you taking probiotics? I used to have alot of trouble with my stomach. Ever since I've been taking probiotics and another supplements called GI Nutrients, I have noticed a huge difference. I've been off of my stomach medicine now for about two months. I'm not saying to get off of any medication, I just find that the probiotics help balance everything out.
2003 symptoms started;panic attacks,anxiety,heightened senses.
2007 Diagnosed with Lyme. Didn't start treatment.
2008 symptoms came back with a vengence.
2009 Diagnosed with Lyme plus co-infections....Babesia and Bartonella.

I was curious how you feel the macrobiotic diet has helped your condition and symptoms. I am evaluating and trying to decide on a new diet avenue. I was going to go with fresh blending but someone talked about macrobiotic.
I am draw to the fresh juicing or blending but as well I am keeping options open.

I hope you find something for nausea. I have not found much that helps besides chamomile tea and I wish i had more relief too.

As Razzle said, ginger is great!  It really helps with nausea.
I always buy fresh Ginger Root (most markets have them in the produce section) and not only use ginger for cooking but also make my own tea's from ginger root.   Very healthy!

I, too, rely heavily on ginger for my naseau.  I use ginger chews from Premier Research Labs.  It also helps my headaches from not enough blood flow to the brain.  Also for naseau I like aloe vera.  Premier has a good one, I also like Forever Living brand.  Aloe vera also heals ulcers, which I got from some med, forgot which one.

I came across these terrycloth band with a hard plastic "button" on them.

I can't remember the name of the product, but I found it on the bottom shelf (of course), along with other nausea meds.

I have now purchased them at both a regular "pharmacy" & Walmart.

I always use them before I used my 'script for nausea.
