Natural Effective Treatments for Nausea and Vomiting in Pregnancy
Your Pregnant Hooray!
But wait, you feel Lousy…Nausea, Vomiting, Dizzy, Weak, Tired, the list goes on. You have the dreaded ~MORNING SICKNESS.
It’s more common than you might think; up to 80% of pregnant women suffer. Many women don’t share about it because it’s happening in the first trimester when the pregnancy is still under wraps.
Let’s talk about Natural Effective Treatments for Nausea and Vomiting in Pregnancy.
What makes it worse?
Low blood sugar
Waking up on an empty stomach
Low Vitamin B6 status prior to and during pregnancy
Diet high in refined carbs/sugar and low in protein
What makes it better?
Vitamin B6 30-100mg per day with food
Ginger 500mg up to three times a day
Stabilizing blood sugar with 5 small meals a day and LOTS of health protein sources
High protein snack before bed
Keep crackers or small snack beside bed for first thing in the morning
Do NOT take vitamins on an empty stomach
I’ve had patients whose morning sickness was so severe that they could not take any of the vitamins orally; in these cases we do vitamin IV infusions instead, which is incredibly effective with 100% absorption rate.
