End Morning Sickness – 5 Proven Ways To Cure Morning Sickness
Hello and welcome to Endmorningsickness.org
If you have come to our site, chances are you are pregnant (Congratulations!) and have started to experience the unpleasant symptoms of morning sickness.
Morning sickness is a common occurrence during pregnancy and affects 4 out of every 5 women. Some women experience mild nausea while for others morning sickness is so severe that they cannot physically carry out their normal daily routines.
The exact cause of morning sickness is still unknown, but it is believed to be caused by the rapid hormonal changes that are taking place in the body during pregnancy. The hormonal changes that are occurring increase stomach acids and significantly enhance the sense of smell, in turn making a pregnant woman more likely to become nauseated by strong odors.
Morning sickness starts around the 4th week of pregnancy and for most women disappears by week 14. However, morning sickness can occur earlier and end much later. It can also occur anytime of the day or night.
One of the most common question pregnant women suffering with nausea want to know is how do I end morning sickness?
There are many answers to this question from eating dry crackers before getting out of bed in the morning to taking a nap after every meal. The answer you get all depends on who you ask.
Some of the more popular methods that have been proven to end morning sickness for many pregnant women are:
Ginger – Medical professionals have used ginger for morning sickness for centuries. It is known for having a soothing affect on the stomach and getting rid of feelings of nausea. Ginger can be purchased in tablet form, tea, powdered or crystallized.
Eating Smaller Meals More Frequently – Instead of eating the normal 3 meals a day, you can eat 5 to 6 smaller meals instead. Doing this will prevent your stomach from becoming empty. When the stomach is empty, feeling of nausea increase.
If you cannot tolerate heavy foods, consume soups, broths and crackers to keep your stomach full and help ease the nausea.
Acupressure – This is an ancient Chinese technique that utilizes the fingers to massage key pressure points in the body to promote healing. Various pressure points work to heal different parts of the body.
Acupressure has been used for centuries to heal various ailments and to help end morning sickness.

Minimize Stress And Fatigue – Stress and fatigue can make morning sickness worse. Try to get at least 8-10 hours sleep each night and take a few minutes out of each day to do some form of exercise. Even if it’s only a 10 minute walk in the fresh air, it will make you feel much better.
Avoid Strong Odors – Try to make note of the smells that cause you to feel nauseous and avoid them whenever possible. This may sound simple but something as simple as taking note of the things you come in contact with daily that make you feel sick and making the necessary changes to avoid them can make a world of difference in how you feel.
These are just a few of the many remedies that you can use to help fight morning sickness. However, the real key to end morning sickness is to try different cures until you find the one thing or combination of things that relieve your morning sickness.
