Nausea may occur for a number of reasons, including anxiety, medication and at various times during treatment.  Anti-nausea medication is  helpful. Discuss with your doctor.

  • Have small, frequent snacks/meals throughout the day.  Eat slowly.  Don't let your stomach become too full or too empty.
  • Sip fluids frequently
  • Try cold dry ginger ale, flat lemonade or cold foods.
  • Dry starch foods (i.e. toast, crackers) may settle the stomach.
  • Avoid the strong smell of food (esp. hot food).   Avoid areas where food is cooked.
  • Avoid irritants - overly sweet foods, fried & fatty foods, highly spiced foods.
  • Cold foods smell less and may be better tolerated, e.g. cold desserts, drinks.
