If you think that vomiting is a disease, you cannot be further from the truth. In fact, vomiting is not a disease in itself. Vomiting is something that goes along with other diseases. In this article I will tell you how to cure vomiting fast.
Vomiting is something that needs to be treated as soon as possible, because excessive vomiting results in loss of water and electrolytes, which causes dehydration. When you vomit, all the undigested or semi-digested present in your stomach are forcefully expelled out through the mouth. Chronic vomiting can make your body weak and you may suffer from various different illnesses. So, what is it that causes vomiting?
Like I said before, there are several different causes behind vomiting. There are medicines out there which cause vomiting as a side-effect. Particularly the medicines that are prescribed for cancer patients are notorious for causing vomiting and nausea. Alcohol can also cause vomiting. Note that when you drink alcohol, you may not vomit immediately. In fact, if you drink alcohol at night, the vomiting will start in the morning. This vomiting is known as ‘hangover’. Similarly, vomiting can also occur during pregnancy. Vomiting usually occurs during the first few months of pregnancy but for some women vomiting may continue well for a longer time.
Lots of people think that a person vomits because he is suffering from indigestion. However, vomiting does not necessarily indicate an upset stomach. Vomiting can be caused for several psychological reasons as well. For example, if you are afraid or anxious about something, you are likely to experience vomiting tendencies.
So, is there really any way to cure vomiting? There is. The number one way to get rid of vomiting is to start taking liquids and avoid solid foods for some time. Take clear liquids such as soup, lemon juice, etc. What do I mean by a ‘clear’ liquid? Well, if you are not sure whether a liquid is clear or not, pour the liquid in a glass. Can you see through it? If not, then the liquid is not clear enough and should be avoided.
You should also avoid milk and milk-related products. Any dairy product can irritate your stomach and you may suffer from vomiting.
Instead of eating foods which seem hard to digest for you, try having soft foods such as gelatin, oatmeal, and yogurt. These foods can be easily digested and the quicker you digest your food, the sooner you will be able to cure vomiting.
