5 Causes of Nausea

Food Allergy

Food intolerance or allergies might lead to frequent nauseous bouts in a few consecutive weeks. You would easily notice this pattern, especially when you consume the same foods during this time. Among these, lactose intolerance is the most common cause. It occurs when your body cannot digest milk as usual. Thus, when you consume some dairy products like cheese or yogurt, the body will try to eliminate them via nausea or vomiting. Also, some people might be intolerant of some foods, such as strawberries, corns, and more. Consult a dietitian and figure out the underlying triggers to remove them from your daily meals. [1]
