Health Tip: Managing Nausea for Cancer Patients

(HealthDay News) -- Nausea among people with cancer may have causes from bacteria in food to chemotherapy, says the American Cancer Society.

To help manage nausea, people with cancer can:

  • Slowly drink clear, cold liquids.

  • Suck on hard candy with pleasant smells.

  • Avoid fatty, fried, spicy or very sweet foods.

  • Raise calories with butter, oils and syrups.

  • Distract themselves with music, television or the company of others.

  • Take anti-nausea medicine when the first symptoms emerge.
