Hey, guys, axe here, of natural medicine and founder of draxe . in this tutorial, I’m going to teach you how to avoid morning sickness in six simple steps. And I know morning sickness is something that can be torturous for people. What’s worse than feeling nauseous all day long? So in this tutorial, I’m going to share with you how to start avoiding that in six simple steps. And number one thing you need to do if you want to avoid morning sickness and overcome.
Morning sickness is really pay particularly close attention to your diet. and first, avoid foods that can cause the feelings of nausea. Now, here are some of those common foods. Number one is caffeine. If you are typically a coffee drinker or consume a lot of caffeine, the problem there, especially when you’re pregnant, it can cause issues with your blood sugar and your energy to go up and down. What we want to create for you is a simple balance of energy and focus throughout the entire day. And blood sugar and insulin levels, when.
Those insulin levels spike, it can cause us feelings of nausea. so staying away from caffeine or going very light switching, from coffee to tea is going to be a smart thing to do to avoid morning sickness. The other thing you want to stay away from is foods that have a very strong scent. You want to stay away from food such as cruciferous vegetables during that time. And again, I’m not telling you not to eat broccoli during your pregnancy, what I’m saying is if you.
Are in that period of time where you’re feeling that morning sickness, that nausea, cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli and Brussels sprouts and cabbage give off that cruciferous, that sulfur smell. And sulfurcontaining foods and that smell can tend to make people feel nauseous. Eggs are similar. Egg are full of sulfur, as are onions, and those can cause people to have that nausealike feeling or increased morning sickness symptoms. The other thing would be seafood, such as fish. Now, there is particular concern with.
Some people about mercury levels. i do think doing wildcaught pacific salmon is completely fine. But I think, in general, for morning sickness, we know that seafood, whether it be shrimp or any type of fish, that can bring up morning sickness symptoms as well. And so those are the big ones. So again, if you have morning sickness, I would really look at your fridge and have your spouse clear out those foods that might make you feel nauseous or cause morning sickness.
And then, the number two thing to do is replace those foods with foods that are more mild in flavor or more bland. And here are some of the best foods if you have morning sickness. One of the top foods in Chinese medicine is rice or congee. So again, rice is really long, slowcooked rice, whether it’s white rice or brown rice. But doing rice or congee is one of the best things you could do. So you could do a cream of rice for breakfast, you could do rice pudding for desert, just regular rice during the day, but rice is one of the.
Best foods. The other thing is fruit. Just in general, fruit is bland, it’s easy to digest, has a mild sweetness to it. So again, doing fruit is great. The next would be cooked veggies. Now, not necessarily broccoli and cabbage and those, but things like carrots are fantastic. And so carrots and squashes, like butternut squash or pumpkin, those things are very mild, they’re easy to digest and also in Chinese medicine, they’re nourishing to what’s called.
The earth element, which is really important during pregnancy. so again, squashes, those types of vegetables are great. You want to make sure they’re cooked and not raw, but cooked vegetables. And then organic meat like chicken. Chicken is one of the best meats you can eat. And then, one of the best ways to get protein is through bone broth. You could do a bone broth powder or a bone broth liquid. But a bone broth soup is one of the best things.
