Series on Symptoms (SOS): Nausea and Vomiting

WE'RE BACK FROM VACATION! And we're here to talk about VOMIT!

Barf, spew, upchuck, puke... whatever you call it, it's gross and unpleasant to experience. Why do our bodies do this to us??

We are starting our "Series on Symptoms"- where we take a deep dive into common symptoms that we experience, why they exist, and what to do about them.

In this episode we cover:

What causes nausea and vomiting?

What is actually happening in our bodies when we experience these symptoms?

How do these symptoms protect us?

How can we tell if we are dehydrated?

What's the best way to maintain hydration?

What are evidence-based treatments for nausea and vomiting?

When should I seek urgent medical care (i.e. go to the ER)?

Our bodies are weird, wild wonderlands, and our symptoms are little clues or puzzles that require some introspection and education to understand and respond to effectively!
