Looking for a treatment that will give you the relief of morning sickness? Have you considered acupressure? The main advantage of this treatment is that once you have learned the appropriate technique, you can perform this treatment on yourself.
But, in order to know if acupressure suits you, some questions must be answered.
What is the gravity of your nausea and vomiting pregnancy?
The reason is the first question I ask is because there is a morning disease level that should not be treated for yourself. It’s called Hyperemesis Gravidarum, and it is when your symptoms of nausea and vomiting are so extreme, weight loss and dehydration can occur. Neither is good for you or your baby, but dehydration is particularly dangerous.
If you encounter vomiting that are not stop and at a point where you can not hold food or liquid, you must see a doctor as soon as you can. Often, women suffering from this disease must be hospitalized because their nutrition and body fluid must be fixed. This is done by intravenous fluid treatments and feeding tubes. Due to these dangerous conditions, you should not try to heal your symptoms; They are better left to a qualified doctor.
If your symptoms are harmful with a slight moderate, acupressure can be correct for you. Of course, there are varying degrees between lightweight to moderate, you may need to decide on this point trying to see if it brings you a relief from morning disease. Sometimes, try treatment is the only way to know if it will work for you.
To what extent do you tolerate the needles?
If the answer is “not very good”, acupressure can be a good choice for you. Acupuncture uses needles and can often bring more reliefs. It is recommended for those with more moderate symptoms of nausea and vomiting, but if needles are something you know you will not be able to tolerate, then try acupressure.
Acupressure has a philosophy similar to acupuncture, which targeted specific areas on the body to provide relief, but applying the pressure (hence the name) instead of needles.
What else did you try?
Have you tried to exercise, herbs such as ginger or avoidance techniques? I usually recommend going with easier treatments / techniques and build your path to acupressure and acupuncture. In this way, if you find something like Ginger help, you do not need to take it further. It is not necessary to make all the payment of an acupuncturist to paste needles on your skin if something as simple as adding a small exercise or trying the good grass will go around.
