In brief: Sometimes
A celiac plexus block is usually used for intractable abdominal pain.
There have been a couple of studies which have found alleviation of nausea, better control of bowels and better sleep in patients who received a celiac plexus block. Usually physicians turn to this block for pain. Talk to your doctor! for nausea alone there are several medications and patches which may be a better option.

In brief: Yes
The block will help with pain which may indirectly reduce nausea.
It will also speed up intestinal motility which also will help.
