Managing Nausea & Morning Sickness

Ginger is excellent for nausea. To help reduce morning sickness you can make aManaging Nausea Ginger tea by placing a few thin slices of fresh Ginger in a cup and adding boiling water. Let it infuse for about 10 minutes if possible.

You can either have it as warm tea or you can make a large jug and drink it cold throughout the day.

Ginger is also fantastic for digestion and circulation so it a great drink for the cooler months.

Ginger can be purchased from most supermarkets and the best way of storing it is by wrapping it in aluminium foil and keeping it in the fridge or freezer.

In order to prevent morning sickness for your next pregnancy, talk to a naturopath as a liver detox may be beneficial.

Water

Water is one of the most undervalued resources for boostingwater energy and it’s free!  Did you know that being slightly dehydrated can cause your brain to temporarily shrink, and therefore cause a reduction in mental focus?  The good news is that your brain can quickly return to its full size once you re-intorduce more water to your day.  Ideally, we should be having 30mL (one medicine cup) per kg of body weight.  During colder weather, this can be difficult but herbal teas can be counted towards your daily fluid intake.  One tip though – if you drink fluids with your meals then you dilute your stomach acid, which makes it harder for your body’s enzymes to break down your food.  This can lead to fatigue after eating.  Try to stop fluids about 20 minutes before each of your main meals.
