Vomiting is not something anyone would want to experience, but when you do, it’s important to be cautious of the colour of the vomiting. Sometimes, the food you eat that did not reach the stomach could be the reason behind that colourful vomiting of yours but the green or yellow vomit may actually be a sign of serious health problems that may need immediate medical attention. You may experience nausea along with bowel movements when you body gets rid itself of the harmful toxins. The colour of the vomit can help you figure out whether all the toxins have been removed completely or not.
As you may know that bile is stored in the liver and gallbladder but the same may get mixed up with the stomach acid and come out as green vomit if you recently had a gallbladder surgery or got a liver infection.
Consumption of too much alcohol and medication such as morphine may also cause irritation in your stomach or gastrointestinal tract, resulting in green vomiting.
When you consume food which has not been prepared properly or eat something you are allergic to, you may get an episode of green vomiting.
Once you finish eating, the food moves at regular intervals through the digestive tract to get expelled through a bowel movement. But obstruction in the bowel movement forces the food upwards even after being partially digested and you end up getting green vomiting.
It’s actually your body’s defense mechanism that makes you throw up bile in order to get rid of harmful toxins from your body. This will make you feel as if there is nothing left in your system.
Sometimes you may experience vomiting for no apparent reason. If this happens to 3 times in six months then you may be suffering from cyclic vomiting syndrome.
