8 natural remedies for morning sickness

Morning sickness is the nauseous feeling commonly experienced during the first trimester in pregnancy. It usually starts in the morning and wears off as you become active throughout your day. While not all morning sickness remedies may work for you, there are several options you can try to find some relief. Here are 8 natural remedies for morning sickness

 

Eat little and often

Low blood sugar as well as hunger pangs can trigger nausea. So try eating something as soon as you wake up and then eat frequently throughout the day. Crackers or toast should be enough to hold your stomach when you can’t seem to keep other foods down.

Don’t over eat

Stretching your stomach can cause nausea and so, it’s important you eat moderately. Don’t over feed yourself.

Fresh ginger

Rich in nutrients and bioactive compounds, fresh ginger have powerful benefits for your body and brain. Ginger happens to have a long history of relieving digestive problems such as nausea, loss of appetite, motion sickness and pain. In a review published by obstetrics and gynecology, 1g of fresh ginger root a day over 4days a week shows significant reduction in symptoms of morning sickness.

Stay hydrated

It’s important you keep your body hydrated. Take as much water as you can. Drink at least 1.5litres of water to stay adequately hydrated. If you are vomiting, drink small amounts of water throughout the day.

Get a good night’s sleep

Lack of sleep can lead to tiredness and as such can lead to you feeling nauseous. Try and sleep for at least 8hours per night and rest when you feel tired. You are likely to feel nauseous when you are tired.

Take your supplements at mealtimes

Take any vitamins and other supplements with food and plenty of water. If taken alone, nutrients can overwhelm your digestive systems and make morning sickness worse.

Avoid fatty or spicy foods

Spicy foods can get your stomach upset and can lead to nausea. Some women find that fatty foods and spicy foods make morning sickness worse.

Visit a nutritional therapist

Don’t hesitate to visit a nutritional therapist if you are finding it difficult to manage morning sickness. A nutritional therapist can do a simple test to determine whether you need supplements to correct any imbalance you may be experiencing.

  1. I was a bit nauseous and sick with my first pregnancy but the second one sucked me really bad. All the time nausea and projectile vomiting. Never seen those bad days before. Thank God, was lucky enough to find a remedy that helped me a lot. No to morning sickness tea was the lifesaver this time.
