Any mother or mother-to-be will likely tell you there’s little accuracy in the name ‘morning sickness,’ as these sudden bouts of nausea that often come with pregnancy can strike at any time of the day. This doesn’t mean, however, that one has to suffer through these ups and downs because there are dozens of effective and frugal living friendly natural remedies for so-called morning sickness.
One way is to keep some fennel or anise seeds with you at all times and at the first sign of nausea, pop a few into your mouth and chew on them to calm your stomach.
Start each day with a hot cup of ginger tea. Ginger is used in many natural remedies for stomach upsets such as motion sickness. You can make a cup of this tea either by using freshly grated ginger root or dried ginger root that you can purchase from your local health food store, and boiling either of the two in water on the stove for about 20 minutes. Strain out the bits and enjoy!
One of the biggest triggers of nausea is hunger, so this one is easy: don’t get hungry! Be sure to pack some quick and nutritious snacks in your bedside table, your hand bag or even your desk at work so that you can prevent nausea before it starts. On this note, it’s also suggested that rather than eating 3 big meals a day (which your sensitive stomach might not be able to handle), start eating a number of smaller meals throughout the course of the day. While women often get the urge to grab something carbohydrate when hunger hits, protein is one of the best ways to stop nausea in its tracks.
Oh, and taking a vitamin on an empty stomach can make anyone feel nauseous so whatever you do, take your vitamins with food! Click here for more information.
