My Story with Morning Sickness Cure and Essentiale Forte

If you are interested in searching an easy way to cure morning sickness, you may also be interested in knowing how this hidden cure was discovered. Together you and me may make medical bodies consider a better treatment for MS, you can do that by giving your views here, whether they are opinions or experience.

Morning sickness is experienced by about 80% of pregnant women, it takes 3-4 months after 2 weeks of child-bearing, may take 9 months for some others, and the unlucky women may get hyperemesis gravidarum and vomit continuously. For decades, the usual way was to switch-off the symptoms, and the plugs themselves may worsen the disease. Mothers deserve an easier way to create human race.

My Experience with Morning Sickness

No I was not pregnant, and I did not know something specific about morning sickness that others don't know.

The story began when I worked as a medical representative for a German pharmaceutical company in Saudi Arabia. This company had a lipotropic product called "Essentiale Forte", and its main indications were use in Virus Hepatitis, Fatty Degeneration and Cirrhosis of the Liver.

Trying to promote its sales, I researched comprehensively every indication of the product. Among its minor indications (meaning no detailed literature, as well as nobody stressed these indications), is "Gestosis" which means any toxic manifestations of pregnancy.

I researched the medical literature in the university library, and I found that estrogen inhibits an enzyme called sodium potasium ATPase (Na-K-ATPase), it also induces cholestasis where bile can not flow from the liver to the duodenum. One of the causes of cholestasis is pregnancy. In the product's literature there is a clinical trial proving that Essential PhosphoLipids activate this same enzyme! Ahha .. we have a link here.

But what is the link between bile acids and morning sickness? is it merely fat indigestion? I asked a consultant Gynecologist and she told me that, the drug of choice to treat Hyperemesis Gravidarum (a severe form of morning sickness) is Cholestyramine which binds bile acids in the gut to be excreted outside the body.

I then collected all and every scientific document that discusses this point, and my story with the use of essential phospholipids to cure morning sickness had begun.

Use of Essential PhosphoLipids to Treat Morning Sickness

I returned back to that gynecologist with my documents and asked her to try the product with morning sickness patients, but she asked me about its teratgenicity studies (does the drug induce malformed births?). I was faced with this demand by all gynecologists I promoted the product to them.

Although the literature of the product comprises so many clinical trials, yet not any one of them had involved teratogenicity of the product. It seems that it is out of interest of the company to sell it for that indication, and clinical trials cost money. And yes I reported that to the company.

Supported with strong "theoretical" scientific facts mentioned in outstanding medical resources, and the very high safety margin of the product, I struggled with physicians to try Essentiale for problematic cases.

Well, any physician may have critical cases where he is asked to weigh the risks of using a certain medication and the benefits of the patient. Some doctors began to try it and the results were marvelous, and I went on.

In Egypt, I advised some friend gynecologists to use Essential Forte to get better results, and I was faced with the classic view of using an unprecedented way of treatment, and the fear of colleagues comments. Finally they began to use it with the same impressive results obtained before.

Type of Phospholipids that Cure Morning Sickness

Phospholipids are triglycerides (edible fat) in which, 1 of the 3 fatty acids is replaced with a phosphoric acid derivative. When this derivative is phosphoryl choline, this phospholipid is called Lecithin (Phosphatidyl Choline).

Lecithin can be obtained from egg yolk, beaf liver, peanuts, and soy beans. They all contain phosphoryl choline and differ in the fatty acids that form the rest of the molecule.

It is these fatty acids that affect the cell membranes, when they are unsaturated fatty acids, they increase their fluidity and permeability, imparting a positive effect on the cell function.

Phosphatidyl Choline is predominant in the liver cell membrane, thus we need a phosphatidyl choline molecule which contains a considerable percentage of unsatuarated fatty acids.

Soy Lecthin fulfills these requirements, as it is a phosphatidyl choline that contains more than 65% of unsaturated fatty acids, Linoleic and Linolenic acids. Since these acids can not be synthesized by the body, they are called essential fatty acids, and the phspholipid containing them is called essential phospholipids.
Essential Phospholipids are the concerned ones, they are abundant in soy lecithin.

Treating Morning Sickness the Conventional Way

The current way of treating morning sickness, lets the pregnant woman lives on the edge to restrict the factors that induce nausea and vomiting, thus she changes what, when, and how much she eats, makes some lifestyle changes that may be inconvenient for some, should be aware of the smells that provoke nausea and vomiting to avoid them, and she should take synthetic chemicals like anti-emetics and anti-histamine. In many cases this procedure fails to control morning sickness.

Most of the medicines that are used conventionally may cause cholestasis, and this means that these medicines may stop the symptoms and increase their underlying cause, starting a vicious circle. Essentiale phospholipids has no effects on vomiting mechanism, yet they control the case.

Products Containing Essential Phospholipids

Essentiale Forte
It contains Essential PhosphoLipids (EPL), vitamin B1, vitamin B2, vitamin B6, vitamin B12, Nicotinamide and vitamin E. It is the product that was tried to obtain the described results. It is 100% natural and completely side-effect free.

It is unknown if Folic Acid with Vitamin B6 and B12 can cause harm to the fetus. If you become pregnant while taking Folic Acid with Vitamin B6 and B12 , discuss with your doctor the benefits and risks of using Folic Acid with Vitamin B6 and B12 during pregnancy.

If you and your doctor decided to use it for morning sickness, you could at least minimize the doses of conventional medicines.

Soy Lecithin
This is soy lecithin that was not submitted to any clinical trials and contains no vitamins, in case you do not intend to take vitamins during pregnancy.

Final Word

I presented all the information I could get about treatment of morning sickness, but this is not intended to replace visiting your doctor. This article is intended as an educational aid while discussing your doctor, after all he is the one who has the responsibility of you treatment.

I suffered from severe morning sickness for the first and second trimestre, after that it calmed down a bit. I wish I had had all this info at the time to discuss it with my doctor.

This is excellent information. I wish it had been available when I was pregnant. Perhaps I wouldn't have spent the first four months rushing to finish making breakfast for my (then) husband so I could run to the bathroom and throw up while he ate.

The smell of eggs cooking (which he had to have every morning without fail) was the trigger - I always felt that the retching noises he endured were a small payback for my having to cook his eggs! :D

At least my doctor was smart enough to NOT prescribe anything - he rightly said it could actually make things worse in the long run (as you have pointed out).

Thanks so much for this excellent hub.

Hi, a GP friend recommended Essentiale for my morning sickness. I have tried EVERYTHING for severe morning sickness and this is the only thing that has helped. It has improved my quality of life significantly. I am concerned about the unproven nature and safety of Essential for the unborn fetus. I am taking 3 a day, one in the morning and 2 at night. When would it constitute overdosing?

High Anna,

Thank you for visiting!

Essentiale has a very wide margin of safety, yet unfortunately there are no clinical trials that were

conducted to determine its dosage during pregnancy.

You just take what relieves your morning nausea or

vomiting and no more.

3 capsules per day is very optimal as this is its recommended dose.

Amazing and interesting information. Very regrettable that medical personnel have to be so fearful of trying anything off label, and particularly since these 'lipids' are so essential in the body. Recent studies have indicated that the lipids are beneficial to brain development in the fetus. (And helpful in ADD also>)

Actually B6, B12 and folic acid are much needed by mother and fetus, and as they are water-soluable, they too are quite safe. Folic acid has been proven to help prevent spina bifida in recent years. B6 is often deficient in pregnancy and increasing amounts of that will often decrease or eliminate morning sickness. I was directed to take this many years ago, and it stopped my MS. Very high doses should not be taken, so this should be discussed with a physician.

Thank you for a very interesing and helpful hub~!
