Despite google searches and having 2 previous go-arounds with pregnancy,I am in my 8th week and I am DYING this time around. I'm big into natural remedies and healing the body naturally. BUT I CAN'T FIND ANYTHING TO HELP! And I really don't want to go on prescription medication. However, I have lost a few pounds. Suggestions would be appreciated!
I've already tried...
B vitamins
Increased my protein

The only thing that has seemed to help has been the magnesium. But it only helps for a few hours. I have morning sickness all day and night. It has been awful. And I'm insanely drained. With my previous pregnancies, I was able to work AND be supermom. I can barely get meals made for my kids without needing to lay down. I can't work right now either.

Lemons. I always had real lemon lemonade (has to be real lemons, not just a lemon drink) on hand. Worked great for me.

good luck and congrats!

I feel for you!! With my last pregnancy the morning sickness was god awful and I tried all the natural remedies to no avail as well. After a while the only thing that worked was making sure I ate something with a lot of protein right before bed.. peanut butter crackers worked well. Then I would sip on gatorade all day, the sodium seemed to help. I got so sick of all the natural cures not working and wanted to beat up the next person who told me to suck on ginger! LMAO

Mine usually passed by around week 10-11.

Editing to add.. bananas helped too. I used to put peanut butter on a banana and call it a meal. LOL Oh and one more thing, when are you taking your prenatals? I had to take them 'right' before I went to sleep or my morning sickness was even worse!

Salty fried potato chips!

I don't know why it works but it does. Google "potato chips morning sickness" and you will see articles about how chips might help. I realized that about 10 BBQ chips really helped relieve my nausea many moons ago.

Check out They sell these type of bracelets that have a high success rate in easing motion sickness and morning sickness symptoms. At least it's a way to attempt easing it without having to eat or drink something to ease the symptoms... I'd bet eating or drinking something is the last thing you want to attempt as you're feeling ill.

I hope it eases for you though!

I know my mother used to drink ginger tea when she was pregnant. She said there was nothing better. I've found a recipe for the one she used to make: boil 30g dried ginger root (which you can get from health-food stores) in 1 cup of water for 15-20 mins. Then strain and sip slowly.

By the way, ginger root is the same herb used to counter motion sickness. It naturally prevents nausea.

I'd also like to say congratulations. You must be so full of joy at carrying a new life inside you. x

Morning Sickness:

• Morning sickness affects pregnant women in the 6th and 12th week of pregnancy
• Contrary to what the name suggests, the symptoms of this condition can occur anytime during the day

Symptoms to look for:

• Vomiting
• Dehydration


• Rise of estrogen levels in the body
• Imbalance of electrolytes and glucose

Natural home remedy using curry leaves, lemon juice and sugar:

1. Crush a handful of curry leaves
2. Press them on a sieve and extract their juice
3. Take 2 tsp curry leave juice
4. Add 1 tsp lemon juice

• Do not get up from the bed immediately after sleep - wake up slowly

These remedies are based on the principles of Ayurveda, the ancient Indian science of healing, and are completely natural, non-invasive, and can be prepared at home. Consult your doctor if the symptoms persist. Refer to the terms of use.

Ayurveda is the way to go. Best of luck and congrats.

i know this controversial to say this, but there are certain herbs that will help you with morning sickness, and just as anything it must be used in moderation, ive know a few women that have gone this route and the baby that explodes from the womb are bright and bouncy. as bad as the goverment tries to paint healing herbs as a bad thing, it is not true, like i said, moderation, plus once ur belly starts getting big the morning sickness will go away and you will have no reason to deal with throwing up, you will just have to deal with the rest of the negative effects pregnancy has on the body. I commend you, and all mothers for having to go through the act of pregnancy.

I had morning sickness all day through both pregnancies, I puked until I delivered.
Ginger never worked for me either, but I had better luck with mint, I kept the little starlight candies close.
I also had some luck with preggie-pops, they have ginger, mint and some other herbs in them. They would work at least long enough for me to eat and or keep my vitamins down. Luckily both boys were as healthy as could be even though I felt like they never got enough, they take it from you instead.
I hope you feel better soon.

My adopted grandmother had all of her three children with the help of some "herbs" and all three are successful, healthy adults. She said when it is cooked into food it is best for the anti-nausea effect

Thanks for all the replies! And well wishes

I'm doing more protein and that seems to be helping. Lemon water is also helping a bit. I read something interesting on keeping your body in a more alkaline state (lemons (acidic) going in does something magical and makes your body alkaline. Excuse the lack of technical terms here) and it seems to make a difference for me. I still feel like dying though.
