Nausea produces a situation of discomfort in the upper part of the stomach, which causes an unpleasant sensation in the throat. On many occasions, it can lead to the exit of food via the mouth.

Nausea and vomiting are common side effects of cancer treatments, but they are usually temporary. During the most intense period do not force yourself to eat, breathe slowly and deeply and wait for the most intense period of nausea to subside.

Try to stay well hydrated, especially if vomiting occurs. Carbonated beverages will help relieve nausea. When you feel better, try eating dry, cold foods such as breadsticks, ginger biscuits, pasta salad or toasted sandwiches. Although broth is a dish that is often craved, it is also easier to vomit. So try to take small sips throughout the day. On days with more discomfort, try to choose lighter cooking methods, such as steaming, boiling or grilling. It is not important how much you eat at one time, but how much you manage to eat throughout the day.​
