For me, the answer came in this Kick Nausea Green Juice Recipe combination I concocted. On the really bad days after my treatments, I would drink it several times a day. It also provided me with good nutrients, which I needed since I was not eating much.
This juice is also a safe homeopathic remedy for the nausea accompanied with pregnancy.
Homeopathic foods for nausea
There are several natural foods that can help reduce the symptoms of nausea. They are especially effective when combined together pressed through a juicer to make a drink such as this green juice recipe.
The first anti-nausea ingredient that goes into your juicer is ginger. According to Everyday Health, “Ginger has a long history of being used to treat nausea, stomachaches, and diarrhea. In China, for instance, it’s been used to treat a variety of digestive and pain issues for more than 2,000 years. It’s unclear exactly how ginger works to ease nausea, but it’s thought that active components such as gingerol directly affect the digestive and central nervous systems.”
Next, add some lemons. They contain citric acid, a naturally-occurring compound thought to aid digestion and soothe the stomach.
Then add green apples. They contain pectin, which helps in neutralizing the acids in your stomach and can prevent you from feeling nauseated. The green apple adds a little sweetness to the juice and supplies vitamin C which will help keep someone healthy whos immunities are down.
Last, a few springs of mint need to be added to the juicer. Mint can have a calming and numbing effect if you ingest it. The main ingredients in peppermint create a calming effect on the gastrointestinal tract and relax the muscles in your stomach.

Does Sprite help with nausea?
According to The New York Times, it is not often that a soft drink is seen as medicinal. But when it comes to stomach distress, many people view a cup of flat soda as just what the doctor ordered.
The quick and popular remedy usually in the form of cola, ginger ale, or clear sodas is said to help settle the stomach with its slight fizz and replenish fluids and glucose lost by vomiting and diarrhea. Parents also find that children who are verging on dehydration but reluctant to consume any liquids are more amenable to soda.
Tips for preparing drinks ahead.
