Flu season has officially begun, and no flu shot promises your protection. So whatever you do to try and keep it at bay, if nausea hits, you know what’s coming. No one wants to feel sick and down, much less have nausea following them around all day.
Even if you never get a full blown flu, feeling nauseous can both limit your productivity or keep you from being able to do anything at all.
We want to give you some natural ways to beat those nasty nauseous feelings and boost your immune system while you’re at it.
First of all, the best natural remedies for healing nausea and vomiting fast, usually involve essential oils. They are convenient, easy to use, and perfect for when you have an upset stomach, stomach flu, or stomach ache.
Essential oils penetrate the skin and circulate throughout the body in a matter of minutes. In addition to absorbing them through the pores, they work just as well when inhaled and dispersed through the lungs. This is great news because if you’re suffering from stomach ailments or nausea, you likely can’t handle taking medication orally anyway.
Home Remedies to Get Rid of Nausea Fast When You Have the Flu
- The best essential oils for easing nausea are eucalyptus and mint. The best way to use them? By purchasing our Mint-Infused Eucalyptus Oil. For fast, effective help, spray the oil directly into the steam of a shower. Just spray, get in, and breathe. Let the oils do their work. This is the ideal Eucalyptus oil and mint combination that not only refreshes but keeps you healthy (and kicks the flu) as well.
- Another remedy is apple cider vinegar. Be sure to ask your local natural foods provider for organic, unfiltered and raw apple cider vinegar (ACV), as this is the most potent and effective. Add 1-2 TBSP of the ACV to an 8 oz. glass of water. Add honey or stevia to sweeten and make the taste more palatable. Drink this every hour or two until you feel relieved.
- Lastly, take activated charcoal. Activated charcoal is a binder, meaning that once taken internally, it acts as a magnet for toxins, quickly absorbing and flushing them out of your system. You can find activated charcoal at most natural health and food stores.
If you’re tired of using less than helpful products to feel better and are ready to experience true health and vitality, start with a powerful small step. Our Mint-Infused Eucalyptus Oil will help you live a life free of nausea and stomach pains.
