ad nauseam


Grammarly says the phrase "ad nauseam" is an incorrect spelling or typo for "nausea" or "nauseas." What say you on this matter?

See example:

In fact, myriad online discussions explain, ad nauseam, why Christians should embrace this trend.

Ad nauseum is Latin, but is in English usage. I would guess that the phrase is just not in the Grammarly dictionary. When writing this phrase, make sure that you italicize it.
