eject-154112_1280Vomiting can be caused by a wide range of conditions including:

-Excessive Eating
-Certain Medication

*If there is a persistent fever, high fever, diarrhea, bloody vomit, or vomiting lasting more than 24 hours, contact a doctor immediately*

In mild cases of vomiting, the following remedies may be of assistance.

General Remedies

1. Ginger
-Ginger is a powerful anti-emetic and can be used in vomiting caused by morning sickness, gastritis, motion sickness and overeating. It is also a carminative therefore promotes peristalsis and digestion. Ginger also improves overall digestion and may be used daily in people suffering with weak digestion and even mild cases of gastroperesis due to its ability to promote gastric emptying. Ginger can be used as a tea or in a dose of half a teaspoon ginger powder in a glass of hot water.

2. Clove
-Although it is more known for its analgesic and anodyne effects, Clove is also effective in treating digestive problems like flatulence, diarrhea and vomiting. Clove is far more powerful in treating vomiting when combined with a betel leaf.

3. Betel leaf
-This leaf is a powerful anti-microbial, anti-histamine, and has been proven to boost digestion by stimulating certain digestive enzymes including lipase, amylase and disaccharidases. The consumption of betel leaves for promoting digestion is an age old practice in eastern countries and is believed to be a powerful tool in supporting digestion. Betel leaf can be eaten with a light coat of honey.

4. Garlic
-This powerful anti-viral, anti-fungal, anti-bacterial and carminative food might just be one of the most powerful medicinal substances for treating food poisoning. Researchers at Washington State University have discovered that a compound in garlic known as “Diallyl sulfide” is far more effective than antibiotics in killing Campylobacter, the most common bacteria known to cause food poisoning. This suggests that garlic is a powerful prophylactic agent for food poisoning.

5. Chitrakadi Vati (Ayurvedic Medicine)

This Ayurvedic medicine is a formulation containing several medicinal plants with the main ingredient being “Plumbago zeylanica”. Clinically, this medicine has been successful in treating a wide range of disorders ranging from vomiting, weak digestion, rheumatism, piles, intestinal parasites, peptic ulcers and even infertility. Research supports its anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-ulcer, anti-fungal, anti-plasmodial, and anti-carcinogenic effects. Ayurvedic doctors prescribe this medicine in many cases of vomiting, along with a mild laxative to promote gastric emptying and peristalsis.
