What to drink for nausea can be a challenge when you are having chemo or are pregnant, but there is natural help with this Green Juice Recipe To Kick Nausea.
Why make an anti-nausea drink
When I was going through chemo it was a challenge to find a food I could tolerate and one that might help me feel a little less sick to my stomach. 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.
Tipas to reduce nausea
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.
If you are pregnant or know you will be having chemo it is a good idea to prepare ahead. Be sure you have apples, mint, ginger and lemons on hand.
- Wash and core apples. Slice and place in a zip-lock bag with a tablespoon lemon juice and 3 tablespoons water. This will prevent them from browning. Keep in the refrigerator.
- Peel ginger and place in an airtight container in the refrigerator
- Peel lemons and remove seeds. Place in a zip-lock bag in the refrigerator.
- Wash mint and place the stems in a small vase. They will stay fresh and might even root.

Good Evening , I just started my first round Chemo today and felt fine until I came home i have a headache .felt a little nausea but I payed down and still have this headache. But I hope your drink will help it a little or more . Thank you for sharing this
Lorena, I hope you are feeling better today. I found that my side effects from chemo lasted a few days that gradually got better each day. Be around day five I felt more like before the chemo round. Had part was I started feeling like I could do normal activities around the house and then it was time for another round. I think what helped me most was giving in to the idea that I was going to have some crummy days ahead and it was ok if I didn't do anything but lay around. It's the way it is supposed to be. I had to focus on the good the chemo was doing to knock out the cancer instead of how awful I felt.

Also, I have a post for more nausea drinks, 25 Drinks That Help With Nausea. Stay hydrated with some of these juices during the chemo and it might help with the headache some.

Thank you for that recipe I will try it and let you know how it goes . My headache is gone though it’s the taste of the chemo everything just taste like it . And everything just smells . I drink lots of water. Just feeling tired and all . Thank you once again and Happy Thanksgiving!!!
I haven't tried this yet however my dad is going through chemo and is sick and weak CONSTANTLY. I don't have a juicer quite yet and was wondering if blending this would be comparable?
I think how ever you can get the ingredients juiced will help him. Especially the ginger and throw in a few fresh mint leaves too. You could try a hand juicer too, then throw everything into a good blender. If he is really sick, sometimes it helps to freeze the juice in popsicle shapes and allow the patient to suck on them slowly.
I never thought about the popsicle idea that's a great suggestion...
