>Does anyone have any suggestions for nausea/stomach aches? I know someone that wakes up almost everyone morning with this and sometimes pukes. He has been checked for ulcers and such. The only thing a doctor could come up with is that it is caused by allergy drainage occurring during the night. He was taking allergy pills every night and it seemed to help. But it hasn't helped in a while. It would be great if there is something natural he can take. Thanks in advance.

Have him try making tea with 4 thin slices of fresh ginger to sip before bed. Alternately, he can buy candied ginger and just have a bit of it.

Some good accompaniments to the ginger are marshmallow root, peppermint, and chamomile.

Ginger is always good for stomach aches and such. Another excellent and easily obtained herb for nausea is catnip. Sounds silly, but catnip is very effective in preventing/alleviating nausea. Inoffensive taste, too!

My spouse and I make a 5-herb tea that almost always provides instant relief. The ingredients are:

1. Comfrey
2. Chamomile
3. Raspberry leaf
4. Skullcap
5. Peppermint (smaller amount than other herbs)

We just mix the dried herbs together, infuse about 2 heaping TBS in a large mug of hot water for 10-15 minutes, and sip; we usually feel better before finishing the cup.

Another suggestion. Vit. B6. If you cannot get the B6 only just try a complex b vitamin. I suffered terribly with morning sickness (to the point of hospitalization), because of the stomach acids produced from hormone changes and began taking a Vit B complex (couldn't find just B6 in those days) four times a day. No more morning sickness. I still take the complex when I began to have stomach spasms. The pain in eased, and I don't puke. If you decide to try the B6, take one before bed and first thing in the morning AND EXPERIMENT. Oh yea, catnip is good, but hard to swallow if you don't feel good. good luck

Lots of different herbs can be used for nausea and vomiting. Peppermint tea helps a lot, so can Chamomile, Fennel, Cardamom, Caraway, and Coriander. Just chewing on Star Anise and/or Fennel can help nausea quite a bit. Teas of all off the above are excellent. I have tried all these remedies and they've worked for both myself and my clients.

[Of course, the very first thing to look at with symptoms like those described is the diet. Change that and voila, no more stomach aches, no more nausea. -Henriette]
