How to avoid morning sickness in pregnancy, home remedies for nausea and vomiting?

Morning sickness is a big headache during pregnancy. There are thousands of natural remedies that are recommended for avoiding morning sickness. I have tried many of them during pregnancy. I have however found that most of them are not effective as nausea and vomiting in pregnancy is caused by comprehensive hormonal changes. Nausea and vomiting prevents women from eating nutritious food during pregnancy. For example, I could drink milk during pregnancy as I used to vomit every time I drink milk. Similarly I had to avoid several nutritious food. Certain women experience nausea and vomiting till third month of pregnancy while certain others find it continuing till the delivery. I belong to the latter group.

From my personal experience I have found few wonderful ways to avoid morning sickness. I have found that nausea appears when stomach is empty. For example we eat lunch at noon. After two hours if we do not eat anything, suddenly nausea would appear that would make us vomit. You should eat something every one half hours. Few biscuits would do the trick. Just remember not to keep your stomach empty. Empty stomach would trigger nausea. Better do not let nausea begin. If nausea begins and you eat something you may vomit. So eat something before nausea begins.

I have a personal simple lemon recipe that I have found effective for morning sickness, nausea and vomiting during pregnancy. This is just a mix of the tastes using lemon, chili powder and salt. This would bring down your nausea even if it starts. Let me first explain the recipe

Tendency to eat raw mango in pregnancy? Know the health benefits of raw mango

Mix of nine different grains porridge for Pregnant women

Lemon recipe for morning sickness

Lemon juice – 1 tablespoon

Salt – a pinch

Chili powder – a pinch

Mix the above ingredients. Put a drop of this mix in your tongue every now and then. Morning sickness would fly away. Try this and let me know if this recipe. I know you would be making fun of me now for explaining this silly recipe. But this silly thing really works. I believe that the recipe is effective because of the terrible effect of lemon on stomach. Lemon is a magic ball. It can do wonders.

Another three remedies I have found effective for nausea and vomiting during pregnancy

Three other remedies for morning sickness

  • Fennel seeds
  • Raw mango (Also tender mango)
  • Ginger

Eat raw mango with peel along with salt. It would help. Fennel seeds are also effective. But these remedies are not as good as the remedy I explained above. Eat fennel seeds raw. Eat mango also as raw. But ginger, you should take the juice and mix with honey or sugar before you drink. Because some people may feel stomach burning sensation when they eat raw ginger.

Other popular remedies like green tea, spice tea are not effective according to me. Drinking more water, avoiding oil food, such tricks did not work for me. Love to hear your experiences in comments

      Yes adding fresh ginger to the tea is a wonderful remedy for vomiting in pregnancy. Ginger improves the digestion process and is therefore effective in reducing vomiting and the feeling of nausea. Surely going to recommend your lemon recipe. Rated up and useful.

      dhannya, I entirely agree but I just would like to add that any vomiting would be controlled by this lemon, spice and salt mixture remedy. I know it works every time as my dad, a doctor, used to tell his patients to take.

      Useful and interesting list of home remedies and voted as such. Shared.
