Hallo Saleshnee
The pain in the chest and nausea could be due to reflux and inflammation of the stomach lining (gastritis). Try to ensure that he eats smaller meals more often and that he eats enough fruits and vegetables ( 3 portions each per day), protein (about 60-100 g per day) - low fat meat, complex carbohydrates 4-6 portions per day and some dairy products. There aren't any supplements he can take to prevent reflux or gastritis, but he needs to take the medication the doctor prescribed for reflux.
