I find ginger to be incredibly helpful for reducing nausea, so I definitely second that advice. I've always had a pretty strong stomach, and I eat a huge amount of ginger, just because I like the way it tastes, and I wonder if that's a coincidence. I also notice that Szechuan food often pairs ginger with hot peppers and strongly spicy dishes, and I notice that my stomach often feels fine when eating that type of cuisine, even when the dishes are so hot that I can barely eat them!

I also think that stress-reducing techniques that you mentioned, like yoga, meditation, or relaxing hobbies, can be really great for reducing anxiety in the long-term.

I've often found that when I reduce my stress and anxiety level, a lot of tangible physical symptoms simply vanish!
