Surprising Remedies for Morning Sickness

pregnant.jpgBetween sixty and eighty percent women suffer from nausea and vomiting during pregnancy, which is called morning sickness. Although the nausea is more common in the morning, it can strike at any time of the day and night. It can begin in the first month of pregnancy and last until the 14th or 16th week. Some women experience morning sickness throughout their pregnancies.

There are two surprising remedies for morning sickness: Apple Cider Vinegar and Lemons.

Why do acidic vinegar and lemons relieve an acidic stomach? Once the body burns both apple cider vinegar and lemon, the remaining ash is alkaline. The alkaline remains or ash help to neutralize the nausea associated with morning sickness.

Organic Raw Apple Cider Vinegar
(Braggs and Spectrum are a good brands)
Mix one tablespoon of raw unfiltered apple cider vinegar in a glass of room temperature water. If vinegar water is not to your taste, the add up to one tablespoon of raw honey to the mix. Sip before going to bed, upon rising, and throughout the day.

Lemon Water
Squeeze plenty of fresh lemon juice into a glass of room temperature water. Sip before going to bed, upon rising, and throughout the day. Avoid sugar. If you wish to sweeten the lemon water add raw unfiltered honey. Some say even the smell of lemons helps with nausea. Unless you are using organic lemons, keep the rind out of your lemon drink. Pesticides sprayed on the lemon skin may leach into the water.
