Best Remedies for Morning Sickness
The joy of finding out you are pregnant can quickly be overshadowed by the debilitating effects of severe morning sickness. Some women are really lucky and never experience the overwhelming nausea and frequent vomiting that can accompany the creation of a new life. Others suffer only for a few hours a day, while the worst cases can be ill from morning to night and often wonder why it is called morning sickness. There are many traditional methods for dealing with these symptoms, and modern pharmaceuticals have come up with a few great additions as well.
• Saltines and ginger ale, though this is an old one, it is often one of the few things that can be kept down during these difficult times. No matter what other remedies you choose to add to the mix, having these on hand is a great idea.
• Try Elevit morning sickness relief tabs, these contain ginger and vitamin b6 which can provide long lasting relief from the nausea and vomiting that make morning sickness unbearable. These are not recommended for extended periods of time and should be used only as needed, but can add the needed relief for an entire day. Elevit morning sickness relief tabs are fantastic as a go to when other remedies just are not doing the trick.
• Herbal tea and honey are also sometimes helpful as the honey can have a calming effect, and when choosing which teas, ginger, licorice, and chamomile can have a nausea reducing and calming effect. Sipping the warm liquid can also help you feel better.
If you are having severe morning sickness it is important to discuss the problem with your primary care physician as you are losing important nourishment and hydration when you are throwing up often and this can be detrimental to your health and that of the baby. There are many prescription products that your doctor may decide are necessary if these over the counter solutions are not sufficient to regulate the problem.
Luckily morning sickness typically only lasts for a few months and then you will be able to get on with all the wonderful parts of being pregnant. It is very important to listen to your body, though morning sickness is very common, if it is severe you might have something bigger going on. Occasional discomfort, even feeling ill every day for a short period of time over the course of a few months is rather normal, but long-term and severe problems are potentially a cause for concern.
In the early stages of morning sickness try drinking some light herbal teas sweetened with honey rather than sugar, eating saltine or other plain crackers and possibly even drinking some ginger ale. Ginger is known to settle the stomach and decrease nausea. You can try Elevit morning sickness tabs, which contain a good quantity of ginger for this purpose as well. Once the baby is born, you will forget all about all the days you threw up and the sick feeling will be simply a faded memory. It is all worth it in the end.
