Herbal Remedies For Pregnancy Sickness Early Signs of Pregnancy Tips

welcome to my channel health for you
Herbal remedies Fresh ginger or ginger teas are often claimed
to ease pregnancy sickness, and experts agree they’re worth trying. However, it depends on how sensitive you are
to certain smells and flavours. Ginger may make your symptoms worse or give
you heartburn. Chinese medicine takes the approach that a
remedy’s effectiveness can depend on the type of person you are. It’s based on the system of yin and yang
and other opposing factors, including heat and cold. According to Chinese medicine, ginger is a
hot (yang) remedy. So it may make your sickness worse if you
are already too hot. Ginger may suit you if you: • like to wrap yourself up in layers of
clothing and blankets • feel miserable, introspective and uninterested
in your surroundings • feel and look cold
• need hot drinks Ginger biscuits and ginger beer are not the
answer, as these contain a lot of sugar, which can cause blood-sugar highs and lows, making
you feel worse. Ginger biscuits do not have enough ginger
to be effective. You could make a tea from grated ginger root. Steep two teaspoons in boiled water, leave
it to cool, and sip it throughout the day. Don’t take more than 3g of raw ginger (about
three teaspoons) a day. Ginger capsules are an option if you don’t
like the tea. Ginger works in the same way as prescribed
medicines and may affect how your blood clots. If you take it for more than three weeks,
ask your doctor to check your blood clotting. If you are taking prescribed anti-coagulant
drugs, aspirin, or other similar medicines, you should not take ginger at all. In Chinese medicine, peppermint is cold (yin). It may be suitable if you: • feel constantly hot and want to remove
layers of clothing • want cool drinks
• look hot and bothered and red-faced • feel irritable and hot-tempered Try sipping peppermint or spearmint tea. Sugar-free peppermint sweets or chewing gum
may also help. Peppermint or spearmint essential oil will
not suit everyone, as the strong smell could make you feel more nauseous. Other herbal remedies worth trying include
lemon balm tea, or small amounts of camomile tea. The effects can be quite short-lived, so you
may need to experiment and perhaps rotate the remedies to get the best effects. Homeopathy There’s no good evidence that homeopathy
works. But if you’d like to try it, make sure that
you see a qualified, registered practitioner. Hypnotherapy Hypnotherapy may work for you if your symptoms
are made worse by stress, anxiety and fear, or other strong emotions. But there’s little evidence that it’s effective
in combating pregnancy sickness. Music app If movement, such as being in a car, makes
your sickness worse, you could try an app to relieve sickness. The app contains music with pulsations that
help to rebalance the fine, sensitive hearing mechanism in your inner ear. You’d need to wear headphones rather than
earphones to allow the music and pulsations to rebound against your ear drum. Reflexology Reflexology follows the principle that your
feet represent a map of your body. The theory is that pressing certain points
on your feet will help to ease your symptoms. There’s no strong evidence that reflexology
works to treat nausea or any other condition, although you may find it a relaxing treatment.

  1. herbal remedies are the best. I have been using an herbal blend "no to morning sickness tea" to ease my nausea during pregnancy which was a great help.
