Symptoms, conditions and causes

What are the causes for vomiting?

Nausea is discomfort and uneasiness that makes you want to throw up or vomit. Usually it’s a one-time event linked to something that doesn’t settle right in the stomach. Most of the time, vomiting is harmless, but if it’s recurring, it can be a sign of a more serious illness.

Cause #1: Gallbladder problems / bile duct

The gallbladder is a very important organ for your body as it stores bile. Bile is very important for our digestion and breakdown of fats. If you take something that your digestive system is not used to, this can overload your gallbladder ducts and cause confusion in your stomach. As a result you can feel nauseous.

Remedies:

  • Take ginger (in a tea or supplement)

  • Take peppermint (in a tea or supplement)

  • Take cayenne pepper (in a supplement)

  • Take chamomile tea

  • Take meadowsweet tea

To avoid feeling nauseous in the future, do the following:

  • Ask yourself: when did the nausea start?

  • Ask yourself: what did you eat before that?

  • Avoid that food if it’s unhealthy

  • If it’s a healthy food, decrease it

Other causes:

  • Motion sickness

  • Food poisoning

  • Chemotherapy

  • Low blood sugar

  • Medications/drugs

  • Kidney stones

  • Pregnancy
