Avoiding Nausea after Surgery with Essential Oils

Overview

Avoiding Nausea After Surgery Naturally with Essential Oils

Author: James Geiger, MD&Paul Winterton, MD

 

Postoperative nausea and vomiting is a problem due to opiate and other pre-surgical medications used for anesthesia with up to 30 percent of patients experiencing this condition. Nausea can be difficult to treat and increase postoperative costs because of delayed discharge from the post-anesthesia care unit (PACU). We only have a few anti-nausea (antiemetic) medications to use after surgery, and they have many side effects including hypotension, restlessness, drowsiness, and sedation, leaving patients unsatisfied with treatment options. Because of this, there is a strong need for alternative and complementary approaches for this condition.

 

Overview:

This protocol uses Peppermint, Digestive Essential Oil Blend* and Lavender oil inhaled to help reduce or eliminate intensity and frequency of nausea. Digestive Essential Oil Blend* is also used internally to help calm and balance the digestive system, helping to avoid nausea and upset stomach. The protocol recommends diffusing Lavender essential oil to help support the nervous system to avoid nausea induced by stress.

Author's Preliminary Clinical Observations

 

Much has been formally and empirically reported regarding the efficacy of inhaled Peppermint and Ginger essential oils with regard to relief from nausea and subsequent vomiting secondary to perioperative anesthesia, pain, postoperative oral opiate, and peri-partum(surrounding pregnancy) intake. Likewise, activities of daily living, such as frenetic rides in an automobile, and recreational pursuits, such as rides in an amusement park, are associated with motion sickness.  Many informal reports of the preventive utility of peppermint and ginger essential oils prior to such events are available online.  I have had success using peppermint and ginger essential oils before and after surgery, according to this protocols.

Discussion, Article Summaries, and Background Research

 

Peppermint and ginger essential oils are commonly used in alternative medicine for nausea and vomiting because of their chemical compounds that help mitigate the symptoms. Peppermint contains menthol and methyl salicylate, which are antispasmodics that help to calm the digestive tract. A variety of studies have shown that the inhaled use of peppermint and ginger have improved postoperative patient outcomes by reducing the need for antiemetic medications after surgery in addition to reducing the incidence and severity of nausea and vomiting, including postoperative and chemotherapy-induced nausea. Intensity, frequency, and cost of treatment for nausea have been shown to improve with the use of essential oils. People suffering from nausea who have been unable to find relief with medications or who do not wish to medicate have found nausea symptoms drastically reduced or eliminated with the use of essential oils.

 

Most recently, a randomized, prospective, double-blind study has been performed at the University of North Carolina regarding the efficacy of peri-operative inhalation of Peppermint and Ginger essential oil^ and their effects on nausea, vomiting, with  secondary benefits of decreased dosage of post-operative pain medication. (Hunt, R., et al., Aromatherapy as Treatment for Postoperative Nausea: A Randomized Trial. Anesth Analg, 201  ABSTRACT)

 

Many studies throughout the world have reported data that suggests relief of peri-partum and post-operative nausea and vomiting following treatment of topically applied or inhaled Peppermint and Ginger essential oils.^(Lua, P.L. and N.S. Zakaria, A brief review of current scientific evidence involving aromatherapy use for nausea and vomiting. J Altern Complement Med, 2012. 18(6): p. 534-40. ABSTRACT; Tayarani-Najaran, Z., et al., Antiemetic activity of volatile oil from Mentha spicata and Mentha × piperita in chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting. Ecancermedicalscience, 2013. 7: p. 290. ABSTRACT  *  PDF)

When to seek a medical professional for treatment:

 

If after 2 weeks of the Self-Administered Protocol you are still having nausea symptoms daily, or very frequently, then take the appropriate anti-nausea medications as directed by your physician (i.e. oral/rectal Phenergan, sublingual/oral Zofran, etc.). Continue to follow Step 1 while being treated by your physician.
