Treat nausea/vomit: Sounds like you have vomiting as well. Obviously you need to treat the nausea. See a GI specialist &/or integrative MD for a through evaluation. You may have parasites or other chronic infections, heavy metal toxicity or other toxins, poor intestinal motility etc. Are there emotional factors? Many drugs & herbs may help, from Zoran to cannabis, ginger & triphala. Consider acupuncture & homeopathy.
