Alot of things can cause nausea. If you continue to vomit, however, you may need to consult a doctor. Continuous bouts of vomiting can lead to dehydration and may point to a cause that a physician needs to address.

As far as battling nausea and vomiting:

- Avoid large meals. Larger amounts of food can cause pressure in the abdomen, increasing discomfort and nausea.

- Try a light snack. The most commonly recommended would be cereal, saltine crackers or dry toast. Keeping a little something in your stomach can also help with any blood sugar drops or dry heaving.

- Drink cool, clear liquids. The option of carbonated beverages differs from person to person. Some find that the "fizz" can help release pressure in the stomach through burping. Others would rather let the "fizz" go out of the drink before consuming. Apple juice or tea are other good choices for an upset tummy. Other drinks such as Gatorade are sometimes encouraged due to their ability to replace electrolytes and lost nutrients from vomiting.

- Practice breathing and relaxation techniques when nauseated.

- Elevate your legs. Some find that lying flat and elevating the feet above the head can help to alleviate nausea.
