I live with constant nausea, so I eat very rarely & very little, but with a change in our living circumstances, I need to cook for my husb& & mother now, but I can barely st& the smell or sight of food. So far no medications have helped.
Do you have any hints of how to get through it or hints of making cooking easier/faster? Thanks! -Sheila
First off, do you know what the source of your nausea is? Are you on medications? Lactose intolerant? Nausea may stem from these.
Also, I wonder if you know that not eating can actually trigger nausea, so try to eat at least some crackers between meals.
Eat bl& foods like potatoes, soft boiled eggs & toast, avoiding spicy, greasy foods. Drink apple & grape juice & clear broth at room temperature.
Fresh ginger root works wonders to stop nausea! Grate a small amount of organic fresh ginger root into a lukewarm cup of decaf organic green tea & sip slowly, 2-3 cups per day.
Try using a crock pot to make simple, but healthy recipes to cut down on the amount of cooking, but steer clear of foods known to give off strong cooking odors.
Make a shepherd’s pie with simple ingredients like ground turkey, mashed potatoes & vegetable of your choice plus a nice, easy green salad.
Prayer works wonders to help calm your spirit! I pray you’ll find these supernaturally healthy tips helpful & pray that God will uncover the source of your nausea & bring healing. If your nausea is constant & severe, you need to see your doctor.
