Chemotherapy Nausea Remedies

By Edited Jun 16, 2014 0 0

You as the patient need to know that most chemotherapy drugs that are used to in attempt to keep cancers away, will cause extreme nausea. If you are on chemotherapy and faced with this problem, there are things that you can do to make it less severe. First talk to your physician for the details on the dug treatment you are receiving during one of your visits. But Please! Do as much research as you can on this drug and see what options are available. And I am not just referring to nausea here.

Nausea that is caused by chemotherapy may be helped by your eating habits being regulated during your treatment. Drink a lot of fluids during the day, this is very important especially if you have problems with vomiting. Do not drink during your meals; this tends to make the nausea worse. Avoid foods that are greasy, fatty and spicy, especially the night before your chemotherapy treatment. Smaller meals are helpful, like toast, dry cereals or crackers.

And a good bit advice; when you are going through your treatments, avoid all of your favorite foods. This way you will not connect those foods with your nausea. Or, just try an alternative method and avoid this altogether. Build your body with nourishment and give your body the chance to kill this cancer the right way.

Avoid strong odors, especially cooking odors. Remain upright after you eat for a couple of hours, this way the food is more easily digested. Wear loose clothing, nothing that will restrict your abdomen and maybe some light exercise after eating, such as walking. These are things that have helped others going through chemotherapy treatments and dealing with nausea. You may also ask your physician for nausea medication if your nausea cannot be helped with the other methods.
