If you are pregnant, then you probably have experienced heartburn, indigestion, and/or morning sickness. Let's look at some natural treatments for pregnancy that you can use today.
When I was pregnant I suffered everything from heartburn to nausea and everything in between. Just trying to sit up in the morning without everything trying to come up was a chore. Then once I got the nausea to calm down, the heartburn would start raging.
Since there isn't much you can safely take when you are pregnant, I researched and found some natural remedies for pregnancy that were effective without side effects that could create problems with my pregnancy.
Here are some home cures for morning sickness, pregnancy nausea, heartburn, and indigestion:
Ginger is often used to help with the symptoms of motion sickness. However, if you are considering using ginger to help with your pregnancy, it is important to check with your doctor. Find out what he recommends as the best amount to take on a daily basis.
Put ingredients in a pan and bring to a boil. Cover and simmer for a least an hour. Strain off the liquid and save the pulp for a very strong, slightly sweet ginger concentrate. Store in the refrigerator. When needed, put a little concentrate in a mug, fill with boiling water, and add lemon to taste. For extra flavor, add concentrate to Celestial Seasonings ginger apricot tea.
You can also take ginger capsules to support the digestive process and help settle stomach upset and prevent motion sickness.
Add 1–2 drops to 8 oz. hot (tea) or cold water for a refreshing after-meal drink.
Make a weak peppermint tea using 1/2 oz. (12g) peppermint and 1 pint (500ml) water. Add the juice of 1 lemon. Cool in refrigerator. Add ice and a sprig of fresh mint.)(Avoid large doses in pregnancy)
Make a tea (fennel see tea bags are easily available-remember to cover cup to avoid losing any goodness)
Oil to Prevent Stretch Marks: Add 4 drops mandarin, 3 drops neroli, 3 drops lavender, to a bottle containing 1 fl. oz. (25ml.) or 5 teaspoonfuls of massage oil or sweet almond oil and 1 teaspoonful wheat germ oil. Massage into the abdomen twice a day from the 5th month of pregnancy) (Note: some hay fever and asthma suffers may be allergic to lavender oil)
My daughter and daughter-in-law who thought it was real cute to be pregnant together and have my precious grandbabies 3 weeks apart and both in July...3 years ago...has done it to me again!
They are both pregnant and due 3 weeks apart.
They also both love these prenatals! My daughter gets very sick for the first 4 months and she said they help settle her stomach and she doesn't belch and taste them (her words not mine) like her prescribed prenatal vitamins.
My daughter-in-law doesn't get sick, but said she could really tell a difference in her energy level if she forgot to take one of these.
I believe it is the ginger root in it that helps with the indigestion during pregnancy as well as the antioxidants that helps with the energy level.
