Herbal Remedies for Morning Sickness
Morning sickness is a condition during the first few weeks or months of pregnancy where a woman experiences nausea and vomiting, especially in the morning. It is probably hormone-related.
Herbal anti-nauseants are often recommended, along with stomach heat-clearing herbs, and antispasmodics. Note: golden seal and other herbs containing the yellow alkaloid berberine (coptis, phellodendron, barberry, Oregon grape root) should be strictly avoided during pregnancy. Recommended diet: Calming Diet, Kitcharee.
