Find cause of vomit: Nausea may be gi-related (food poisoning, peptic disease, gastroparesis, due to biliary & pancreatic disease, gas/bloat syndrome, small bowel problems). Consider "central" causes: motion sickness, vertigo, migraine headache, brain problems (some very serious). Also, rule out infection (? Urinary tract), medication side effects, pregnancy, & even reaction to stress. Find & treat the cause--see doc.

Ginger: One trick for nausea is to sip on gingerale or ginger tea. You can also nibble on crystalized ginger. Seek medical attention if these symptoms do not resolve.
