Emetophobia How To Stop Yourself From Being Sick

Very few of us actually enjoy vomitting, but when our dislike becomes an anxiety disorder then we may have a quite common phobia.

This phobia is called emetophobia. While it might sound strange to someone who doesn't suffer from it, it's actually believed to be the sixth most common phobia in existence. People with emetophobia rarely discuss it, so many people who have this disrder are not aware of how common it is.

There are ways to help someone who has this issue. One of the best treatments is to seek therapy using hypnosis -- or hypnotherapy -- with an experienced professional. If you think you might be struggling with a fear of nausea and vomiting, emetophobia, you should seek help.

If you're just suffering from an upset stomach and are hoping to avoid vomiting, check out the following tips on how to ease your queazy stomach.

Avoid strong smells - If you are feeling nauseous already, avoid places with very strong odors or offensive smells. When a person is feeling that they may be sick, this can trigger the sensation that makes them vomit.

Seek out a cool breeze - If you are in a car, try rolling your window down and letting the fresh air blow over your face. If you are at home you can do the same thing with a fan. A washcloth that has been soaked in cool water can also have a similar effect. This soothing, cooling sensation can often settle a stomach upset.

Get your mind off of it - Do your best to take your mind off how you're feeling. You can call a friend, go out for a walk, put on some music, a radio talk show, or even a movie. Focusing on vomitting can make it worse.

Take a nap - If you're able to, taking a nap can also help to soothe an upset stomach. Getting rest and giving your body a break is always good when you're not feeling well, and sometimes sleep is the very thing your body needs to feel better.

Drink the right liquids - If you have an upset stomach, some liquids can help it and others can make it worse. Foods and drinks that are acidic are best avoided. Try drinking clear fluids, like water, broth, tea, or cranberry juice. Ginger tea or ginger ale is also said to soothe an upset stomach.

Eat ginger - Ginger has been known to reduce nausea, so much so that doctors have even suggested it to pregnant women suffering from morning sickness. Ginger can be added to your food, grated or thinly sliced, and it makes a deliciously soothing hot tea, too.

Eat light - It's best to eat something light that will not further upset things. Fruit or some dry crackers would be a good choice. Avoid hard to digest foods until you're feeling better.

These are really helpful tips that you can use if you're feeling queazy and are worried that you might vomit. However, if you're suffering from emetophobia, a fear of vomiting, you're best bet is to speak to a qualified hypnotherapist or mental health care professional about your concerns.
