Using natural remedies to treat cancer patients with nausea

If you or a loved one is battling cancer, you know how debilitating a bout of nausea can be. Nausea, in fact, is one of the most common complaints of cancer patients, with up to 70 percent saying they experience it at some point during treatment or prior to it.

Here are some natural nausea remedies:
Ginger: Along with taming nausea, ginger has anti-inflammatory properties and can help your immune system.

Aromatherpy: Lavender is calming and peppermint is cooling. These scents and others may help stop spasms in your gastrointestinal tract or override feelings of nausea.

Diet: Eating small meals throughout the day is a good strategy to try to prevent nausea. With small, frequent meals, the stomach stays active and it’s less likely you’ll experience nausea.
