The Natural Morning Sickness Help Trend

Posted on Jul 9, 2012 | Blog Posts, Morning Sickness Remedies Category | | Print This Article

Women have been using natural morning sickness remedies for centuries. In ages past, that was because we didn’t necessarily have access to modern medications. Today, however, women realize that those modern medications aren’t all they’re cracked up to be. After the thalidomide scare in the 50s and 60s, it’s no wonder more women are turning to natural morning sickness remedies.

Still the most effective

One natural morning sickness remedy that’s been around for a long time is ginger. Ginger still proves to be the most effective morning sickness remedy for many, many women. Some women prefer a ginger tea, while others might choose other formats. Even ginger pills – at a rate of two 250 milligram capsules per day – can considerably reduce your morning sickness.

Vitamin B6

Another remedy being used to treat morning sickness today is vitamin B6. Vitamin B6 doesn’t have anti-nausea properties on its own, per se. Instead, it helps your body to metabolize hormones. It’s thought that morning sickness is caused by a rise in certain hormones during pregnancy, and so taking Vitamin B6 can help to minimize nausea brought on by that phenomenon.

Hydration and morning sickness

For some women, morning sickness can be brought on by dehydration. Even a mild case of dehydration can contribute to your morning sickness. In this case, the natural remedy for morning sickness is simply to drink something. Try to stay away from products with too much caffeine, and of course plain water is always the most efficient at rehydrating you.

When it gets unbearable

If you have severe morning sickness, talk to your doctor. If you’re unable to keep any food down, that’s going to be a problem. Your baby needs the nutrients in the food you take in. Talk to your doctor to see what you can do. In some cases, you may need to receive nutrients and liquid via an IV, at least until you’re past the worst of your morning sickness.

So, what about you? Are there natural morning sickness remedies you’ve tried? How well did they work for you?
