Oriental Secrets For Nausea


Bob Dorris, D.O.M. here.

Here's a couple quick, effective tricks to stop nausea this holiday season, whether from traveling (flying or car-sickness) or pretty much any other cause (pregnancy, chemotherapy or nagging in-laws).

These don't have the side effects of nausea medications, and their effectiveness is backed up by plenty of research.

Don't underestimate their power because they seem so simple.

Acupressure to the wrist

An easy to use one that costs nothing is acupressure to a special point on your wrist. It's called "P 6" (because it's the 6th point on the Pericardium acupuncture channel).

It's located 3 finger widths up the inside of your wrist from your wrist crease, between the two tendons that stick out when you flex your wrist back and forth. See the photo below:

You can stimulate it with a blunt object like the tip of your thumb, a chopstick, or, if you're in the office, the non-sharp side of a pen or pencil.

Use mild to moderate pressure for about 60 seconds. You might feel a slight ache, which is usually a good sign, but use common sense and don't damage yourself. Repeat it as often as necessary.

*Bonus - use this at the holiday office party when someone has the hiccups... it works, and you'll be the hit of the party!

Ginger tea or capsules

This one's been used in China, for more than 2,000 years and is an important herbal medicine there...

...funny that ginger's been relegated only to our spice racks, rather than our medicine cabinets (except in my home, of course!)

Using it is pretty simple. Either grate it into boiling water and make a tea out of it, or buy capsules at the grocery store or pharmacy and take a couple when you feel nausea.

If you want to be more specific...

...If you have nausea - take 2 to 4 grams of fresh root daily (0.25 to 1.0 grams of powdered root).

... If you want to prevent nausea or vomiting...

  • Take 2 ginger capsules (1 gram) three times a day, or
  • Take 1/2 tsp. ginger powder every four hours, or
  • Just chew on a small piece of ginger three or four times a day.

At my home, we always have fresh ginger on hand - it's a powerful remedy for a lot of digestive problems.

I hope this makes this upcoming holiday season happier and healthier!

Good health,

Bob Dorris, D.O.M.
