Cures for Pregnancy Morning Sickness – Some Useful Tips

If you’re suffering from pregnancy morning sickness, you’ll be happy to know that there are a number of different ways to treat your nausea. These range from food choices, herbs and homeopathic preparations, to acupressure and prescription medication.

Despite the fact that most women with morning sickness have an aversion to food – or at least some foods – food is exactly what they need. More specifically, women experiencing morning sickness should try to increase their protein intake. In fact, studies have shown that increasing your protein intake can help keep morning sickness at bay. To beat the nausea, have a protein-rich snack before bedtime and as soon as you can upon awakening.

In addition, try to eat smaller meals at regular intervals throughout the day. Eat whatever foods appeal to you, so long as they’re safe to eat. Craving potato chips and lemonade? Then have some. Think you'd do better with spicy Chinese food? Then have some of that. Generally, if you have a craving, you’ll be able to keep that food down. When you think about food, think about the different qualities food has to help you find something appealing. For example, would like something warm or something cold? Something crispy or something creamy? Something bland or spicy? Sweet or savory? You’ll find that your body will tell you what you need.

Ginger is also a classic remedy for nausea. Ginger is available in a variety of forms, from beverages such as ginger ale or ginger tea, to cookies, candies and even capsules. You may need to try more than one product to find the one that works for you. However, if you choose ginger products, make sure they contain real ginger and aren’t just ginger flavored.

Peppermint tea is another classic remedy for nausea and stomach upset. It can be consumed as a tea or in peppermint flavored candies. Many women also find relief with fennel or anise seed items.

There are also several homeopathic remedies that can help control nausea and vomiting. Nux vomica is perhaps the best known, although pulsatilla can also be helpful. For best results, talk with a practitioner trained in homeopathy – he or she will take a number of different factors into consideration when choosing the correct remedy for you.

Acupressure can also be effective in treating morning sickness. Many women find relief using the acupressure wrist bands sold for the prevention of motion sickness. The acupressure point to stimulate is located on the inside of the wrist, three finger widths up from the bend of the wrist and between the two wrist tendons.

Additional vitamin B6 has also shown good results in relieving the symptoms of morning sickness. Try taking a B complex supplement in addition to your regular vitamins to see if it improves your symptoms.

If these remedies don’t work for you and nausea and vomiting are interfering with your daily life or if you have lost 10 percent or more of your pre-pregnancy body weight, your health care provider may decide to prescribe prescription anti-nausea medications. Promethazine and metoclopramide are two of the most commonly used medications for preventing nausea during pregnancy.
