Natural Remedy for New Mama

Morning Sickness:

Nausea and mild vomiting in the morning during the first and sometimes second trimester of pregnancy. Often occurs because of low blood sugar, build up of a by-product from increased hormonal activity, a vitamin B6 deficiency (which may cause low blood sugar problems), and/or a calcium deficiency.

Natural Remedies:

Walking at least a mile a day in the fresh air, if weather permits, is a wonderful way to get your circulation going and to get rid of the hormonal by- products.

Increase the amounts of the B-complex vitamins and iron in your diet. See "The Vitamin Guide" for more information on B6.

Avoid spicy and greasy foods; cooking, eating or smelling.

Drink plenty of Raspberry leaf tea each day, it supplies plenty of B vitamins and needed minerals to balance your body's needs. You can drink one cup of tea everyday through out the pregnancy to tone and prepare the uterus as well as relieve nausea.

Homeopathic Remedies:

Ipecac 30x, nux nomica 6x, or Cannabis 30x (take as directed) Drink peppermint or spearmint tea first thing in the morning.
