Nausea can be a difficult condition to deal with. For many people, nausea can interfere with daily life when it is severe or persistent. In addition, many of the medications that are available to counteract nausea can have side effects that are undesirable, such as tiredness or sleepiness. For this reason, many people have used other methods to try to ease their nausea. One of the most popular ways to ease nausea is through the use of a variety of herbal teas.

One of the most effective herbal teas in terms of easing nausea tends to be ginger tea. Ginger is known for its soothing effect on the stomach and the digestive system. Ginger tea is available in tea bags, or you can make fresh ginger tea. To make fresh ginger tea, you can boil peeled, chopped, fresh ginger in water for a few minutes. Many people prefer to let their ginger tea cool for a bit, and then drink it as iced tea. Boiling the ginger root does not make it any less effective, although some people with more severe nausea might choose to take ginger capsules as opposed to using ginger tea.

Some people have had success using dandelion tea, as well. Dandelion is thought to help with poor digestion, as well as other problems such as urinary tract issues. Dandelion tea is also though to relieve constipation and help with the detoxification of the body.

Peppermint tea is another tea that may be able to help ease nausea. The peppermint leaf is thought to be soothing to the digestive system. In terms of peppermint tea, however, you need to make sure to read the label. Many peppermint teas do not actually use peppermint, but they are peppermint flavored. You can also make your own peppermint tea using peppermint oil.

There are other types of tea that can help ease nausea as well. Fennel seed tea or fennel tea is particularly useful for relieving gas and helping with indigestion. It also is thought to relax spasms of the intestines. Red raspberry tea is thought to help sooth nausea, especially when it is caused by morning sickness. Chamomile tea is also used for gas and indigestion, and is thought to help with colic.

While not everyone responds to these types of teas the same, it is likely that you can find one that will help to ease your nausea.
