Vomiting is simply the stomach releasing its contents via the mouth. Vomiting is not an illness in itself but can rather be seen as a symptom. It may be associated with many illnesses, including gastroenteritis, food poisoning, motion sickness, Meniere’s disease, migraine, pregnancy, eating disorders, and intoxication, just to name a few. The feeling associated with vomiting is called nausea. Vomiting may be treated using anti-emetic medication, fluid replacement, homoeopathy, Traditional Chinese Medicine, herbal therapies, Ayurveda, acupressure, behavioral therapy, and hydrotherapy.
