Acupuncture is quite effective at treating morning sickness symptoms. Not everybody puts faith in this type of treatment, but many medical experts believe that it can help with a variety of ailments. Acupuncture has been widely used by the Chinese for many centuries because it is quite an effective pain reliever (though its ability to cure disorders is still up for debate). If you are afraid of needles (even non painful ones like those used in acupuncture), try acupressure and reflexology--these use touching and pushing on pressure points on the body (and not needles) to get the same results. There are practitioners of these healing systems, or you can get a book or go online and learn how to apply pressure to these points yourself. Each tip in this article works as a morning sickness remedy. In conclusion, while some discomfort is normal during pregnancy, treating some of them (like morning sickness) is easy. If you learn how to properly watch your diet, get a lot of rest and use these tips, you can easily minimize the discomfort your morning sickness is causing you.
You can also use essential oils for morning sickness. Pregnant women often have extra sensitivity towards certain odors. Of course this can be a bad odor that makes you nauseous, but good smells help too which is why many experts recommend aromatherapy for a morning sickness remedy. Peppermint oil is one of the best aromatherapy remedies for morning sickness. You can use peppermint for digestion, you can drink it as a tea and you can burn it as an oil, and it's the latter that works the best for morning sickness. Peppermint oil dropped into hot water has the same effect as the aromatherapy so don't worry if you don't have the equipment. If you put a pot near your bed while you sleep your symptoms will diminish drastically. Some other essences, such as lemon or lavender might also be helpful as morning sickness remedies.
One great thing you can do for morning sickness is to keep away from scents that make you feel as if you have to throw up.
When you are pregnant, your sense of smell is especially strong, and certain odors are likely to trigger morning sickness. Some of the common odors that cause morning sickness symptoms to appear include cigarette smoke, trash and even certain room deodorizers. You may feel uncomfortable because your husband's cologne brings on these symptoms, but just tell him as he's likely to understand. You will merely want to refrain from smelling anything that makes you feel like vomiting. If you walk into a store or someone's house and there is incense burning that makes you feel sick, excuse yourself and wait outside. Have someone else change the cat litter or take out the trash while you're pregnant. You may not cure your morning sickness this way, but it will help with your discomfort.
Morning sickness can make it hard to do almost anything, and when you experience it you shouldn't try to do anything besides resting. The above remedies can help you with some of your symptoms but remember that your morning sickness won't last for long so just wait it out and it'll be over before you know it.
