Anxiety nausea and sweating, are quite often suffered together.
If you have ever experienced a panic or anxiety attack then you know what I am talking about. Some people feel dizzy and a need to flee the situation, but many times it is impossible to flee the situation, and nausea will tend to form as another symptom.
As most people know, nausea is that sick urge to vomit you have in the pit of your stomach. It is bad enough when you get this feeling with the flu or some virus, but anxiety nausea is different. It is combined with a full body "fight or flight" syndrome and is a very uncomfortable feeling.
Many times if you get away from the stressor or situation that is causing the anxiety signs, then the nausea will calm down, as well as the nausea sweating. But what if you can't get away or are trying to deal with the situation?
One way to help with nausea and anxiety is to stand up straight, and take a deep breath and hold it. Then let it out very slowly. Do this a couple more times, and you should feel your whole body relax and this will at least temporarily relax your stomach, and that feeling should pass.
If you are a person that always feels like they are on "high alert" or consider yourself a "worrier" then there are natural methods to help calm down. If you have anxiety that is interfering with your life, you should see a doctor, but for temporary situations or dealing with a particular situation that is keeping you up at night, and making you feel the feelings of anxiety nausea, then try these home remedies.
First of all, you need to get your sleep, other anxiety signs include "insomnia" which can also trigger anxiety as you body is not rested. Try this home remedy recipe to try and get a good nights rest. This is a two step process:
Aromatic Relaxing Bath
Fill a bath with tepid water (not hot) and add 10 drops of lavender essential oil (you can get this in health food stores).
Soak in this bath for at least 15 minutes, with your eyes closed and listening to soft music and taking calming breaths.
Now that you are all relaxed from your bath, you are going to make yourself this calming tea:
3 teaspoons dried chamomile tea (you can get this in prepared tea bags, but it is better in the loose form, for this).
In a small pot, pour the boiling water over the chamomile. Let it steep for 15 minutes, then strain and drink this within an hour of going to bed.
Chamomile tea, is also good for calming anxiety nausea, and soothes the stomach.
The above are great aids when dealing with nausea and anxiety, but you really need to deal with the cause of the anxiety, because once that happens the other symptoms such as sweating will fade away.
If you experience a bad case of anxiety nausea, you can take a cold wash cloth to the back of your neck. Do this 3 or 4 times, and you will find the nausea sweating and any other symptoms will calm down a bit.
You have to find what works best for yourself. Getting a good night sleep is somewhere to start, and dealing with the cause of your stress in the first place. Each person reacts differently to a stressful situation. It is how you deal with it that will determine whether you will suffer the anxiety signs.
We all, from time to time, have periods in our lives that are beyond the normal daily stresses, and we need to dive right into a situation that leaves us with insomnia as we toss and turn worrying about the situation, which then affects our day.
If you can help alleviate at least one of these anxiety signs, then you will feel more in control, and able to cope. Try all of the above to see if they work for you. Take the deep cleansing breaths, take the lavender bath, and drink the calming chamomile tea.
If nothing is helping then you need to see a doctor. Sometimes distracting yourself from the situation can help, but for anyone who has not experience that feeling of anxiety nausea, they will not understand how horrible this feels.
My mother suffered from anxiety nausea, and after years of trying to deal with it, and refusing any medication, she realized that if she exercised while worried, she burned off the nausea and anxiety, she was always filled with "what if" scenarios, but by walking fast, or moving rocks around the yard, gardening, or suddenly cleaning like crazy, she felt better. It got her back in control.
With a family of 4 kids, and all the worries that go with raising them, we ended up with a clean house and an amazing rock garden outside! She would get up and burn off the excess energy, and she said the nausea would leave. Then make herself a cup of the calming tea, and she felt back in control.
She experienced this problem with anxiety when she felt she had lost control or was not able to control a situation, such as when someone was ill. She cleaned out the all the closets when I had my appendix out when I was a kid! This worked for her.
So, you need to be able to work through these home remedies and see what works for you. Whether it is burning it off with a good run or exercise, or a soothing bath, or calming tea, or deep breaths, or a cold cloth to the neck, or all of the above! If you don't want to be taking pills for all the symptoms, then try these, they won't hurt you, and you may end up feeling great!
These recipes above for anxiety nausea would also work for a stressful day. Who wouldn't enjoy a lavender bath, take deep cleansing breathes after work, and a cup of calming chamomile tea! Take care of the mind, body and soul, and feel good.
