Hi mlittle,How exciting to be in a study, hope it will be a good experience for you. You asked for natural remedies for heartburn, nausea and to sleep. If you can tolerate (and are allowed) milk, drinking half a mug of milk (roomtemperature) about half an hour before you eat can sometimes do the trick for heartburn. Ginger tea (either from teabags or from fresh ginger) is commonly used as a natural remedy for nausea. As for sleeping, all I can think of are a glass of warm/hot milk at bedtime and a warm relaxing bath before going to bed. If heartburn troubles you at night you could try to sleep with your head raised higher then your feet (more pillows or put something underneath the headend of the bed). Hope you'll get plenty of other suggestions ( and good luck with the study)Fay
