MORNING SICKNESS

Morning Sickness: is the nausea and vomiting that affects a large percent of all expectant mothers during the first few months of pregnancy. It's thought to be due to hormonal changes produced by the placenta and fetus, which cause the stomach to empty more slowly. The term "morning sickness" can be deceptive because for some women, it can come at any time of day. It usually starts 4 to 6 weeks after conception and usually resolves by the 16th week. Some women may have symptoms beyond the first trimester, and a few may have symptoms throughout their entire pregnancy. To determine whether you are maintaining proper nourishment and fluid intake during your pregnancy, your health care provider will monitor changes in your wieght and how well you're eating and drinking. Normal weight gain during the first trimester is only about 2 pounds. During the second trimester, weight gain should average about 1 pound each week. Overall gain for the third trimester is about 11 pounds for a total of 25 to 35 pounds throughout pregnancy. The quality of your diet is important. It might be helpful for you to keep a record of what you eat and drink.

HYDROTHERAPY

The mysterious and amazing healing power of water has been utilized for centuries. Water cleanses, refreshes and restores all life. We are always drawn to water. Be it a soothing fountain or majestic waterfall. Water is a carrier. It flows. It moves along the line of least resistance to find its way to the ocean where comes and goes in the ebb and flow of tides and waves. The appeal is inexplicable! We crave water, maybe because our bodies are made up of a large percent of it. Maybe beacuse we instinctively know how it can heal us.

Hydrotherapy is the use of water in any form, in the treatment of dis-ease. Hydrotherapy was used by the ancient Greek physicians. The use of baths for such purposes as well as for religious purification, personal cleanliness, and private or social relaxation dates from at least the time of ancient Greece. A German, Vincenz Priessnitz, popularized the use of spas in Germany and elsewhere in Europe, where they are still popular today.

Hydrotherapy has a number of uses. Warm water will relax spasm; thus, hydrotherapy has been useful in treating such conditions as muscular strains and sprains, muscular fatigue, and backache. Heat is often used in conjunction with massage or other manipulative or stimulative treatments, such as the whirlpool bath. Sitz baths (sitting in hot water) are effective in the treatment of many disorders. Water is also useful in physical therapy because patients who exercise in a buoyant medium can move weak parts of their bodies without contending with the strong force of gravity.

Take a warm bath. Fill the bath tub with warm water. As the tub fills with water add 2 spoons of Angel's Mist Deep Soak Sea Salts to the bath water. Soak for 15-20 minutes.

Consider a relaxing bath with the calming effects of Angel's Mist Lavender Fields and Ocean Breeze Essential Oil Soaps -A calming blend of Lavender or soothing blend with Chamomile essential oils makes these soaps wonderful for creating a soothing, calm, relaxed feel.




HOMEOPATHIC REMEDIES:

This medical system uses infinitesimal doses of natural substances to stimulate a person's immune system and body's natural defenses. Homeopathic remedies are named for the plant or animal ingredients they are made from. Homeopathy not only offers relief from temporary disorders but, can provide long term healing of a person due to its individual and "wholistic" approach. This often leads to a complete recovery from the dis-ease, as well as, providing an improved understanding of the patient's situation. This type of healing makes it easier and possible to avoid recurrence or relapses in the future and, homeopathy stimulates the body's natural defense system by reestablishing normal immune system and cell functioning.

MORNING SICKNESS:
Sepia 30c for symptoms of nausea worsens in the morning, at the sight or smell of food, occasional vomiting, constipation or cold hands or feet.
Ipecac 6c if symptoms occur such as persistant vomiting and nausea, exhaustion after vomiting, feeling better in the open air but feel worse after movement.
Phosphorus 6c if symptoms occur such as being fearful, very sensitive to all stimuli, the need to vomit suddenly and often or after drinking water.




HEALING TOUCH THERAPY:

There are many different approaches to massage and applications of it. "Massage Therapy" is a holistic procedure that affects all systems of the body; digestive, elimination, respiratory, circulatory, lymphatic, endocrine and nervous systems. Many of today's health problems arise from stress. Because stress upsets the delicate integral balance of all your body's functions, regaining this balance requires a holistic approach.
Massage Therapy not only treats those parts of you which are a problem, but also affects the whole of your metabolism through normalizing your circulatory, muscular and nervous systems and their interdependent functioning. Massage is usually done with soothing massage oils or relaxing body lotions in order for the practioner's hands to "glide" over the body with smooth, relaxing strokes.

Learn How to Give a Massage. This step by step method will help you learn just how to make your subject feel great!

Acupressure Massage is very effective for this condition. Working with a partner, lie on your right side and and have your partner sit behind you, supporting your back with the left leg. Partner slips the left arm under yours and grasp your left shoulder. With the right hand, massage the entire neck three times. Then, your partner can place the palm against the base of your skull and stretch your head away from your shoulders.
Next, have your partner use the thumb to press down your back in the grooves between the left shoulder blade and spine and then around the perimeter of your shoulder blade out toward your side. Keep the pressure on for 5 to 7 seconds per point. If your partner finds a sore spot, gently give it extra attention. Have your partner slip the thumb as far under your shoulder blade as is comfortable.
Begin with gentle pressure and tell your partner if you want more pressure. Your partner should always use their body weight, not their arm muscle power. By stimulating the external, you can eliminate the internal discomfort. The trigger points used in this exercise affect the stomach and the hormonal system.
Crystal Massage works on a deep esoteric level allowing not only the physical body enjoyment and total relaxation but the stones will enhance a positive, reconnecting flow of energy which will allow you to bring up, recognize and clear emotional blocks.



NUTRITION

Water. Drinking at least 6-8 8 ounces of water is very important. Not only does it keep organs lubricated and your body system hydrated, it also keeps body temperature in balance.

Eat small meals. Rather than load your system three times a day, (although, even the thought of food, is enough to make you sick) try 4-5 small meals which will help your body regulate temperature and avoid an uncomfortable or bloated feeling.

Avoid caffeine. Caffeine-containing beverages stimulate production of the stress hormones. Coffee and colas are the culprits that should be avoided.

Avoid alcohol.

The traditional medical advice for morning sickness is such: Keep your stomach partially full by eating crackers, dry toast, or dry cereal before you get out of bed in the morning, and try snacking on dry, starchy foods later in the day. Also, sip clear liquids between meals. You're more likely to feel nauseous if your stomach is empty or too full. Beacuse it may be hard for you to eat a well-balanced diet when you feel such an aversion to food, make sure you take a multivitamin that has folic acid and calcium.

To prevent neural tube defects, such as spina bifida, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends increasing the intake of folic acid to 400 microgram per day, beginning at least one month before conception and continuing through the first trimester.



EMOTIONAL ASPECT:

There is an emotional aspect to every illness. Often times, it is the emotional thoughts or "excess emotions" that will lead to illness. The following therapies are utilized for calming the mind, help with stress relief and focuses on our mental powers over any situation. The ability to balance your emotional, mental, physical and spiritual self is up to you. Here are some suggestions:

What is your experience with this disorder? Sharing your own experiences often helps others. We'd love to know in the Peacefulmind Community




YOGA/MEDITATION THERAPY REMEDIES:

Yoga poses can be good alternatives to "traditional" health remedies because they relax the body and mind, improve circulation and respiration, reduce tension and help the body through it's healing process.

MORNING SICKNESS:
The Yogic breath exercise can be done without instruction, without danger, and with a good chance that your discomfort and stressful feelings will be reduced. Relaxation Breath is the most powerful tool for stress management.

Sit up, with your back straight in any position.
Place your tongue against the ridge of tissue just behind your upper front teeth and keep it there throughout the exercise.
Exhale completely through your mouth.
Close your mouth and inhale quietly through your nose to a mental count of four.
Hold your breath for a count of seven.
Exhale completely through your mouth, to a count of eight.
Repeat this cycle three more times for a total of four breaths.
Try to do this breathing exercise at least twice a day. You can repeat the whole sequence as often as you wish, but don't do it more than four breaths at one time for the first month of practice. This exercise is fairly intense and has a profound effect on the nervous system.

Deep Diaphram Breath
Sit with your legs crossed in a comfortable position. Breathe slowly and evenly from your diaphragm, through your nose. Fill your lower abdomen, lungs, then chest with air. Hold for a four count then slowly exhale the air out from your chest, lungs, then lower abdomen. Repeat 3 or 4 times. That's it! Just allow your shoulders to drop and your face relax as you breath, deep.
Also consider Mountain, Relaxing Poses.




MEDITATION:

Meditation is a time-honored technique that can take you into infinite dimensions of consciousness. One major principle to meditation is in the ability to completely quiet your mind. Quieting the mind comes as a result of meditating over a long period of time, but any time you are looking within, you are meditating. There are many meditation methods. Some are passive and others are active -- not in the physical sense, but in the sense that you actually do something during meditation. Meditators learn to focus their awareness and direct it onto an object: the breath, a phrase or word: a mantra, repeated silently, a memorized inspirational phrase, an image in the mind's eye. Researchers have documented immediate benefits in terms of lowered blood pressure, decreased heart and respiratory rate, increased blood flow, and other measurable signs of the relaxation response.
Meditation will calm an agitated mind, creating optimal physical and mental health, undo our sense of separateness, which is the common root of fear and misery, unify consciousness, putting us in touch with our higher self and connect us to higher consciousness. Meditation restructures the mind, allowing us to achieve our full potential as human beings.

Fold your hands gently in your lap and close your eyes. Take a few deep breaths. Then just sit. If you have never meditated before, you will probably feel as if your mind is full of thoughts. Don't try to stop the thoughts, just watch them. Imagine that you are on the bank of a river and that your thoughts are the river going by. Don't try to stop the river, just watch it. Within a week, you will see the river begin to slow down. You may become impatient, or even bored. That's okay. If you find yourself complaining, just watch the thoughts pass by. Do this for 5 to 10 minutes. You may find that you fall asleep because you are so relaxed. That's good because, in many ways, you have begun to let go. Continue at this pace and each day allow just alittle more time for yourself to meditate. Doing this allows you to relax and forget about time.



COLOR THERAPY REMEDIES:

When you are balanced, you can more effectively fight dis-ease, rid your system of toxins, as well as, negative patterns. You can achieve balance through the vibrational remedy and application of color. Color inteacts with the human energy system in a unique way to stablize physical, emotional, mental and spiritual conditions.

MORNING SICKNESS:

In general, we recommend Blue.

Since intuition plays a big part in color healing may we suggest going to our Quick Fix Color Therapy Test to find out what color you need this moment to heal.




MUSIC/SOUND THERAPY:

Vibrational medicine which validates that everything in the universe is in a state of vibration and the frequency at which an object or person most naturally vibrates is called resonance. The chakras, bones, and organs in the body all possess a different resonant frequency. When an organ or part of the body is vibrating out of tune or nonharmoniously, it is called "dis ease" or disease. A body is in a healthy state of being when each cell, each organ creates a resonance that is in harmony with the whole being.
Music is a powerful tool that can be used in so many ways. It has been proven that the type of music that makes a person relax or become receptive is not any one kind. It all depends on the individual and their affinity with it.

Soothing Healing Music is recommended for this condition.




METAPHYSICAL REMEDIES:

The power of your mind and your belief system has everything to do with the condition, the speed and the way that you heal.

* Our Belief System is one of the major factors that can get us through situations or can cause our life to crumble around us! I do believe that there is a lot of innate goodness and balancing our minds do subconsciously to get us through hard times. The other portion of this is how we "program" ourselves to deal with any given situation.

* Our self-confidence and self-love are often the key to opening and strengthening this portion of our thoughts which in turn emanates from ourselves!

* Energy follows thought. Program thought to be positive and your energy will reflect it!

* Really appreciating what we DO have, as opposed to what we would like to have, sometimes makes a signifcant difference. This is always an important element in healing that is often neglected.




STONE & CRYSTAL REMEDIES:

Crystals have both piezoelectric and pyroelectric properties. This means that the polarities of the crystal will change when subjected to pressure or heat (even body heat from the hands). This will radiate energy from the crystal due to this reversal of polarities. It provides the transfer, storage and transformation of energy. Offering a balanced energy field, energy modification, amplifies both energy and thought, clarity in thinking, and harmony and alignment with the chakra energy areas.

The Complete Chakra Kit stimulates the seven main energy sources which govern all the major organs and psychologically alters and clears the body's energy in order to allow healing to take place.

MORNING SICKNESS:
Leifite, Rhodolite (member of the Garnet family) & Spinel



CANDLE THERAPY

The power behind Candle Therapy is not only therapeutic, but works on a psychological and spirtual plane as well. The candle's flame has always been a metaphor for the soul. It possesses a tranquil and almost hypnotic atmosphere to those who allow its power to take them to a very special place!

Botanical Candles such asOcean Breeze, Freesia, Apple/Cinnamon, Citrus Twist are all wonderful for this condition.

Healer Candles such as Stress Release, Calm, and Balance can allow their powerful mix of herbs and essential oils to help the body heal.

The Chakra Candle Set is very appropriate for any kind of balance and energy work that is needed in healing.
