Combatting Nausea

As the world is spinning for dizzy patients, nausea is often a side effect. Here are a few tips for combatting nausea:

1) Sit down on a chair, close your eyes and take a few slow, deep breaths. This will help with both dizziness and nausea.

2) Antiemetics (anti-nausea) medication may provide temporary relief, but please note that the side effects of these medications often include drowsiness.

3) At our clinic we always have a stash of ginger candies to hand patients – they definitely help as they soothe upset stomachs.

4) Sources point to vitamin B6 as counteracting against nausea.
