Most people experience nausea after eating from time to time, so the problem is quite common. If you experience the problem frequently, it could be caused by anything from eating too much food, eating wrong foods such as very spicy foods, greasy foods or foods which cause gas. Sometimes even stomach flu can be deemed the cause of the problem.

From the health point of view, episodes of nausea after you have eaten are a bit complicated to deal with as there numerous potential causes, with majority of them being not serious and a few cases being serious. If you happen to experience the condition every so often, make sure you check with your doctor so that you get treated. It is also important to find out if there is another underlying cause of the problem.

In most cases people prefer natural methods and home remedies as they are generally the most gentle on the system and don’t induce nausea on their own accord, as other medications often do.


What is Nausea?

Nausea can be defined as an unpleasant feeling one gets when they are about to vomit but end up not doing so.

This problem occurs in children as well as adults. Nausea can be linked to so many other mild to serious medical conditions.

Nausea has no symptoms as it is a symptom itself rather than a disease.  Feeling nauseous just after ones meal is certainly not one of the best feelings. Nausea after eating could be caused by so many underlying causes. If this eating disorder continues even after using medications or various other remedies, it could be a sign of a serious medical problem. When it reaches that point, you should see a doctor immediately.

Other symptoms of nausea are fatigue, sweating and headache, and sometimes even quick breathing. Sometimes the mouth may become parched or dry due to dehydration.

Probable Causes

There could be many reasons for it, such as overeating, food poisoning, alcohol, excessive medication and so on. Some people traveling in overcrowded buses or trains can leave them dizzy.

Morning sickness, which is also associated with nausea and vomiting, is also one of the most common symptoms during pregnancy.

Many people are intolerant to wheat or lactose, and may thus experience giddiness or nausea after eating such foods.

The content of food one consumes is one of the main reasons why someone can get nauseous after taking their meal. There are some specific ingredients in some foods which cause adverse reactions in some people, leading to indigestion.

Foods which cause allergies or food poisoning could be another reason why someone can get nausea after food.

Eating food every so often can also contribute to a nauseous feeling as well as taking very long intervals between your meals.

Other probable causes of nausea after meals can be diseases like viral gastroenteritis and conditions such as pregnancy which also cause digestive vomiting.
