Primary prevention

Nausea can be prevented by:

  • eating frequent small meals instead of three large meals [1]
  • eating slowly
  • consuming foods that are easy to digest [1]
  • consuming food that is cold or at room temperature since smell of warm or hot food can cause nausea
  • avoid triggers like unpleasant odor and sight
  • resting after eating keeping the head elevated
  • drinking fluids between meals instead of during meals

Vomiting (after feeling nauseated) can be prevented by:
