Patients Medical now offers individuals suffering from persistent nausea and vomiting a holistic treatment approach that can include herbal remedies, dietary modifications, stress management techniques, methods for reducing inflammation in the digestive tract, and more. The practice’s specialized physicians will first identify the underlying cause through blood or breath tests to eliminate infection, malabsorption, or electrolyte imbalance, then use imaging tests to detect any structural abnormalities or examine the digestive tract through a colonoscopy or endoscopy.
While nausea is often paired with vomiting, other common symptoms are excessive salivation, fatigue or weakness, abdominal cramping, dizziness, headache, and rapid heartbeat. Nausea itself is usually a symptom of an underlying medical condition, including pregnancy, migraines, gallbladder or liver disease, infections, anxiety or stress, and digestive disorders. With such a wide range of possible causes, it is important to identify the underlying condition in order to properly treat it and alleviate nausea long-term.
Patients Medical can prescribe conventional remedies to relieve a patient’s nausea and vomiting and then complement those with alternative treatments to provide holistic and enduring healing. Alternative treatments can include probiotics, peppermint oil, and ginger extracts, all proven to decrease inflammation and improve digestive health. The practice’s holistic doctors may also prescribe good sleep hygiene practices, exercise or yoga, and a nutrition plan designed to permanently soothe and strengthen digestion.
