Looking for nausea relief during your period? Here are four safe, natural ways you can get rid of nausea without a doctor’s prescription for an expensive drug with bad side effects.
1. Drinking Ginger Tea Will Help Reduce Nausea From Period
If there was a hall of fame for natural nausea treatments this one would sure to be there.
Chances are your grandmother, even your great grandmother, used this treatment and with good reason – it works!
To use ginger tea for PMS nausea, dice a piece of ginger root into small pieces, once you have a tablespoon full, put them in a coffee cup and add boiling water. Let it steep for a minutes and then drink.
You should notice the effects of the tea almost immediately. If you like, you can also add sweetener and lemon to the tea.
2. Vitamins to Take for Nausea Before or During Period
Another good treatment for PMS nausea is to take vitamins – in particular B vitamins, including:
• vitamin B1 (thiamine)
• vitamin B2 (riboflavin)
• vitamin B3 (niacin)
• vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid)
• vitamin B6 (pyridoxine)
• vitamin B12
• folic acid
• PABA (para-aminobenzoic acid)
These are considered B complex vitamins and they are great for relieving nausea. One thing to look for when choosing a B vitamin supplement: all the vitamins listed above should be included at the same percentage. For example, they should all be at 100%. A dirty trick that some manufacturers use is leave out some of the B vitamins and to only put in 13% to 30% of the required amount of biotin, which is 300 mg.
One more tip: taking a liquid B complex vitamin when you have nausea may make it easier for you to stomach it.
The advantage of taking a liquid B complex when you have nausea is that you can stomach it better. Actually, the liquid B complex bypasses the digestive tract all together and goes directly into the blood stream for immediate relief. One thing you should never do is take a B Complex supplement immediately after a meal has this can lead to even worse nausea.
3. Take a Period Vitamin
A period vitamin will be full of all the vitamins and minerals you need to feel your best during your period. Nausea is often caused by vitamin and mineral deficiencies in the body. Taking a period vitamin regularly will prevent those deficiencies from occurring.
4. Eat Healthy
This means your diet should consist of plenty of greens, fruits, a handful of nuts, plenty of protein, a few servings of dairy products, and healthy fats.
Grains are optional because some people are sensitive to gluten.

• Beef, pork, chicken, turkey, duck, fish, shellfish, eggs, dairy
• Vegetables like broccoli, green beans, carrots, peas and lettuce
• Fruits like apples, oranges, bananas, grapes and watermelon
