Peppermint Aromatherapy for Nausea

Loading ....

Is the relief of nausea and vomiting after surgery from sniffing peppermint extract due to the mint, the alcohol vapors, or just the controlled breathing?

What do you think of them still using the alcohol pads even though they were shown to offer no additional benefit? I have a whole video on such questions: The Lie That Heals: Should Doctors Give Placebos? ()

Here’s a link to my Natural Nausea Remedy Recipe (). Powdered ginger may be easier though (see Dangerous Advice From Health Food Store Employees ).

Of course the best way to avoid postsurgical nausea is to try to avoid surgery in the first place. Those that eat healthy may be less likely to go under the knife. See Say No to Drugs by Saying Yes to More Plants ().

  1. We planted mint in our front yard, years later we tried to get rid of it but it continues to grow back, so I’m going to put it to use!

  2. Are there any long term studies about the safety of ingesting food grade essential oils ?

  3. My family always drink peppermint tea when we feel nausea, aches or just stress 🙂 lovely stuff

  4. I can testify to this… I was just watching the video while very nauseous and tried the breathing technique. As silly as this all seems it worked for very for me. I feel a ton better. I do have peppermint oil which I’ll try out later, but the simple act of breathing deeply in and out helped a lot.

  5. Hi Doc, I’m not sure what’s happening but this video only showed up today (8/4/15) even though it is dated the 1st of April. I’ve found a few videos that have done the same. Thanks.

    1. I’m not 100% sure, but I believe that the Published date is possibly when he uploaded it and it was available “Privately”.  You can do so and share the link to people you want to check your video for errors and the such, before making it “Public”.  I have seen on other channels that release their videos to Pateron or Subbable subscribers a week early.  Then after a week, they mark the video as “Public” and I get a notification.  I will see comments that are a week old, even though the video only released on the day I was noified.

  6. Great video! We will share with our community!

  7. Amazing!
