Morning Sickness

Welcome to the Pregnancy edition of Homeopathy & Health Newsletter!

Did you know that Homeopathy can safely and gently relieve most pregnancy related symptoms and discomforts? Homeopathy is a gentle yet effective system of medicine which uses remedies that are highly diluted and are not chemical drugs, making them safe for both babies and mothers.

Treating Morning Sickness Naturally

Just as you discover you are about to welcome a bundle of joy to your family, you start to feel the most awful feeling, nausea that zaps all joy out of your life. Whether it’s a low lying undercurrent of nausea that just never seems to go away, or it’s a gut wrenching urge that makes you run to the bathroom or nearest garbage pail, homeopathy can help. From mild to severe, whether morning or night, three remedies in particular are known to battle those nausea related symptoms: Nux Vomica, Sepia, and Colchicum.

Remedies to think of

Nux Vomica is known for nausea with or without vomiting, and with retching and bloating.

Sepia treats nausea without vomiting.

Colchicum is known for all day nausea brought on by smelling (or even seeing) food…yuck!

Top 5 Foods That Battle Morning Sickness

Try these foods known to be good on nauseous stomachs

Salty Crackers: Stashing them by your beside means you can have a nibble even in the middle of the night if your nausea is keeping you up. Also try taking a few bites when you first wake up in the morning, as an empty stomach is much more susceptible to morning sickness.

Lemons: Many find even the scent of citrus soothing. Sniff a slice, squeeze some lemon juice in your water, or even throw a few sugar free lemon drops in your purse.

High Protein Foods: Research shows that higher protein levels increase a hormone called gastrin, which may help to reduce morning sickness. If you can, try feuling up on appropriate amounts of protein, such as beef, poultry, fish, eggs, nuts, and beans.

Cold Foods: Cold foods are not as aromatic as hot foods, so less likely to trigger your gag reflex. The warmer something is, the more it will smell. Try cold beverages and cold options like gazpacho (cold soup), smoothies or frozen smoothie pops, yogurt, sorbets, and ice cream (yes, I am telling you to eat ice cream!)

Ginger: Research shows ginger can be very effective in relieving symptoms of nausea. Try ginger tea, crystallized ginger candy, ginger snaps, or even fresh ginger in your cooking.
