However, were she my patient I would make identifying the source of the nausea a priority. I often find digestive issues such as bile insufficiency, gallstones, lack of digestive enzymes, medication side effects or food allergies to be the culprit.

condition. Heavily depending on the conditions and symptoms your mother presents, I believe acupuncture alone can help resolve this issue, but if not, herbal supplements are another powerful method of Traditional Chinese Medicine that will either work synergistically with acupuncture or alone.
I hope she starts feeling better soon!!
Yes, we do have protocols that can help with nausea.
Acupuncture helps treat nausea very effectively. Your mother will likely feel relief immediately.
The following is a quote from a recent science-based journal:
"Acupuncture is a treatment in which thin needles (diameter of 0.20-0.30 mm) are inserted into various points along the skin, according to energy channels (meridians) established thousands of years ago. The anti-emetic effects of acupuncture apparently stem from the resultant increase in hypophyseal secretion of beta-endorphins and ACTH, with subsequent
inhibition of the CTZ and vomiting center. Acupuncture also affects the upper GI tract, decreasing acid secretion and repressing gastric arrhythmias. Clinical research has found this treatment modality to be effective for nausea, whether it be due to morning sickness in pregnant women, motion sickness in travellers, postoperative nausea or chemotherapy-induced nausea in cancer patients."
