Vomiting is a forceful discharge of stomach contents through the esophagus and out of the mouth. If you need to make yourself throw up, there should be a right way to do by yourself and here are a few methods that can help you induce vomiting effectively and properly.
1. Emetic – Induce vomiting
An herb that causes emesis, that makes you want to vomit. Like Ipecac syrup, OTC emetics are over-the-counter (non-prescription) substances that induce vomiting. Do not take anything by mouth to induce vomiting.
2. Use clean fingers
The quickest way to make yourself throw up is to use clean fingers. Place your fingers on the tongue and move along the tongue with your fingertips.
3. Salt water
Excessive sodium chloride in the stomach activates vomiting process. So if you could not able to vomit by using your index finger technique have a glass of salt water.
4. Someone Else Throw Up
Our urge to puke when we see somebody else vomiting might also be due to the fact that the vomit isn’t exactly pleasing to the eye. If someone starts throwing up, it’s best if everyone stops eating for a while.
5. Ipecac Syrup
Syrup of ipecac commonly referred to as ipecac, is a drug that was once used as a cough syrup. It was for decades commonly used as an emetic to induce vomiting in poison control situations.
6. Throw Up When You Are Drunk
Being intoxicated on alcohol (i.e., drunk) and feeling sick are two different things ( although the two often go together) – Throwing up can also help your body recover and sober you up quickly. Use your index finger to induce vomiting.
