There are 30 remedies that cover the case, except for the feeling as if something were moving in the intestines.  I was not able to find that rubric.  So more information is needed.  I can say that 74 is not very old.  I’m in my 70’s and do not consider myself very old.  94 would be very old.  The main problem with continual vomiting is dehydration, in which case I would give China.  If she can hold down water, have her take frequent small sips with a little sea salt in it, so it will be retained in her cells.  Or try some type of bubbly water.  That sometimes stays down better than flat water.  She can probably go for quite a while without eating, but not without water.  Some simple foods would be OK once the nausea is gone – white rice, applesauce, or whatever she has a taste for.  You could start with a broth and see if she can keep that down before moving to rice and applesauce.

You should consider visiting a doctor and having that person assess her condition.  Just be careful about subjecting her to unnecessary or invasive tests. It helps to know what the problem is.

Just select one option from below. How you or her family members see this old patient ? 


sad, must exercise restraint.


Irritable; feels helpless, but consolation aggravates him.


Keeps talking to self or complaining about pain.




The point you will select … please explain it in just one or two lines …


Looking Forward


With Regards
