Vomiting is a natural process for the body to rid itself of something it does not want, in he quickest way possible. Nausea is usually the prior warning of this process, although it can mean other things too. Vomiting is commonly caused by an infection in the stomach or intestines that may be due to food poisoning or an infection of an unknown origin. If the vomiting and nausea clear up reasonably quickly and you are feeling better, then you do not need to take any Homeopathic medicines. However, if it is persistent and you feel your body is not coping well, then chose one of the following remedies. Some of the remedies in the diarrhoea section will help ease vomiting also.
Vomiting has been treated by homeopathy.
Vomiting requires detailed specific prescribing of the "right" homeopathic remedy.
Trial and error or shotgun prescribing does not work, and therefore we don't recommend self-medication. In fact, self-medication will complicate the overall symptom picture.
Below are only some of the remedies we may prescribe, please note how important the individual symptom picture is. Only when all symptoms, aggravation or amelioration are taken into consideration can a specific homeopathic remedy be selected.
A further consideration is given to the potency of the remedy.

|Arsenicum - This is frequently the first remedy to consider in acute ailments of the gastrointestinal tract. Use it when diarrhoea and stomach pains accompany violent vomiting. Other symptoms include weakness and exhaustion, chilliness, and restlessness. You may want to take sips of cold water, which you then vomit straight up again. Take Arsenicum on holiday with you, especially when you are doubtful about the level of hygiene in the local food and water.|
|Bryonia - If you have stomach pains and you want to lie quite still on the side that hurts and be left completely alone. In spite of the vomiting, you are very thirsty and want lots of cold water.|
|Colocynthis - The vomiting is accompanied by the most unbearable stomach pains, which come in spasms, like colic. The only thing that seems to ease the agony is doubling up or pressing the painful part very hard.|
|Ipecac - Vomiting does not seem to help the extreme nausea and you feel just as bad afterwards Your tongue remains clean and does not become coated. Overeating may be the cause of the symptoms.|
|Nux vomica - You may feel a great urge to vomit, but despite the nausea, you fail to bring much up. The cause may be overeating or too much rich food. It is often the remedy for the business person who eats too much, works too hard and does too little exercise. The indigested food feels like a heavy load in the stomach. You may feel noticeably irritable and chilly.|
|Phosphorus - The symptoms are similar to those of Arsenicum and you should use this remedy if Arsenicum does not wok. A peculiarity of this remedy is that you want cold drinks, which are vomited up as soon as the liquid is warmed in the stomach. Sometimes you may have an empty hollow feeling in the stomach.|
