Clinical Study Title:
Alternative therapies for nausea and vomiting of pregnancy.
|Plain English Summary:|
|There have been many therapies suggested for relieving the nausea and vomiting associated with early pregnancy. This study reviews various methods to determine which methods were found to be effective at reducing nausea and vomiting. Acupressure, ginger and vitamin b6 were found to be among the most effective. The use of acupressure has found to significantly reduce the vomiting and reports of nausea, as well as supplements of ginger and oral daily supplements of vitamin b6. This suggests that during the early stages of pregnancy, using a daily supplement of vitamin b6 as well as ginger as needed may help to reduce the subjective feelings of nausea as well as episodes of vomiting.|
