Most people are extremely uncomfortable with increased vomiting reflex. Whether it’s a visit to the dentist or even an ordinary morning brushing ritual. So today, we’re finally going to figure out how to get rid of the vomiting reflex.


There are two main reasons for the gag reflex, psychological and physiological.

In the first case, this is most often due to nervousness, anxiety or fear, as many people do at the dentist’s office.

In the second case, it is the body’s natural response to mechanical effects in the oral cavity.

But it is important to note that in people with difficult nasal breathing or stomach disease, the gag reflex is many times more severe. In this case, there is no need to see a doctor.


It is possible to cope with the psychological component of the vomiting reflex with the help of folk remedies without resorting to medications. We can do this with light sedative herbs.

  • Valeriana
  • Tea with chamomile

Regular rinsing of the throat with salt water also helps in getting rid. 1 teaspoon of salt per glass of water.


But unlike rinses, which need to be done regularly. There is a way that works much faster, but unfortunately not for everyone. It’s sprinkling a little coarse salt on the root of the tongue.

Decreased sensitivity of the palate.

There is another very effective way, which is practised by experienced dentists. They simply apply superficial palate anaesthesia to patients with increased reflexes.
