Best Natural Remedies for Morning Sickness

Friday, 04 April 2014 12:47 AM EDT

Early stages of pregnancy are often linked with nausea and/or vomiting in the morning, which is also known as morning sickness. Some other complaints of early pregnancy are scanty, milky discharge from the vagina and heaviness and darkening in the breasts. The severity of morning sickness varies significantly in different women in early pregnancy. Actually, the nausea is caused due to hormonal changes during pregnancy. Morning sickness can be quite troublesome for some women and can affect their nutrition during pregnancy. Interestingly, some women find pregnancy quite normal and do not complain of nausea.

One of the best natural solutions for morning sickness is to change your lifestyle and food habits. Medicines are prescribed only if morning sickness does not resolve even after natural remedies. In case of severe nausea or continued vomiting, it is better to consult the doctor.

Natural Remedies for Morning Sickness

Pregnant women are advised to take high-carbohydrate and low-fat food as one of the best natural remedies for morning sickness.
Ginger is among the best natural remedies for treating morning sickness in pregnancy. Ginger chutney, grated ginger, and ginger tea are best used as natural remedies for alleviating nausea in pregnancy.
Eating banana and dry toast for breakfast is another natural remedy that would help women control nausea during early pregnancy. It is best advised that these are eaten  early in the morning. 
Eating small, but frequent meals is a natural cure for nausea. This is beneficial as it maintains the blood sugar levels, a fall in which can trigger nausea naturally.
It is best advised to avoid lying down soon after eating. This would help in preventing nausea.
Taking lemon juice in small quantities is one of the proven natural remedies for managing nausea during pregnancy. Smelling the aroma of freshly cut lemon also relieves nausea.

Vitamin B6 and magnesium are some natural remedies recommended by many health care professionals to curtail the nausea in morning sickness.
Managing your stress levels along with these remedies can be very helpful. Women under duress are more sensitive to smell and have severe morning sickness. 
If these natural remedies do not help, then one can consult a doctor for medicines that are safe for both the mother and baby.
