We’re here to share a very useful trick which will show you how to stop nausea and feel better instantly.
How to Stop Nausea and Vomiting with Acupressure
Acupressure gives us some very simple and effective solution to everyday problems. It also provides us with the fastest and most efficient way for how to stop nausea and gag reflexes. There is a point on the inside of your forearm, just above the wrist, which if pressed relieves you of any and all discomfort you might be feeling.
If you are one of those people who easily gets sick this trick can come in handy in those desperate moments. Here is what you need to do next time you feel sick and nauseated.
Place your arms in front of you with your palms and fingers pointing up. Try to sit in a comfortable position, relax and take a deep breath. Find the point where you need to apply pressure. It’s located on the inner forearm, three fingers below your wrist. Use your other hand and with your thumb press that point right between the two large tendons.
Press it firmly with your thumb and index finger on both sides of your wrist. Then rub the point gently but firmly in circular motions for a few minutes. Then repeat the same process with the other hand. It can make you feel better in a matter of minutes or you can feel relieved immediately.
This point is called P6 or inner gate and it can relieve nausea and vomiting when pressed. When you apply pressure on this point it sends signals to the brain and it starts releasing dopamine, endorphin and serotonin in our body. When they get released your chemistry changes and you feel instant relief.
Try this method next time your gag reflex or motion sickness kicks in and see the amazing effects for yourself.
Here’s a video explaining how to locate the inner gate and how to perform this acupressure massage:
