Stressful Nausea?

 

 
Whenever something really stressful happens, I feel like I am going to throw up. How can I make this go away?
 
Nausea is a natural response to stress. When under pressure due to an oral report, family issues, friendship feuds, whatever, your body secretes hormones into your bloodstream, raising your heart rate, dilating your pupils and, well, making you wanna hurl.
 
Dr. Andrew Spooner, Director of Pediatrics, University of Tennessee Medical Group, Memphis, recommends relaxation techniques: Breathe deeply, holding your hand on your chest to make sure it doesn’t rise. “Your belly will stick out if you’re doing it right,” says Dr. Spooner. Breathe, and tell yourself, “I’ll be fine; I can handle this.” Next, imagine a serene scene, like lying on the beach. Aaahhh… If your anxiety is interfering with your life, see your doctor. Some medications might help.
