Stop morning sickness with
You may find it hard to believe that your thumb could be the key to ending those mornings when you feel like your stomach is turning inside out. But, your thumb has more power than you think! More studies have been done to prove the effects of acupressure on nausea than any other natural ailments. And, the results are universally positive.
In one study, pregnant women were treated with “fake” (placebo) acupressure points to make sure that it was not all in their heads. The study proved that the women who received acupressure to the proper points for combating nausea, experienced relief, while those who received acupressure to the fake points did not. Definitely, it is not all in the mind!
Yes, all it takes to significantly reduce, and possibly even end, morning sickness is your thumb. Women who have learned acupressure techniques have also found them invaluable for avoiding vomiting and nausea during labor. Acupressure is so effective in eliminating nausea that hospitals are using this after operations, when nausea from general anesthesia is very common.
One of the best aspects of acupressure is that you can give yourself treatments whenever you need them. When nausea strikes, no matter where you are, you can get relief. This is especially important for pregnant women because most anti-nausea medications can cause birth defects. This leaves you with few options other than suffering, and vomiting can leave you dehydrated and with electrolyte imbalances.
One of the most effective points to use for nausea is called the Inner Gate (P6). This specific point is on your wrist. And, it is easy to treat by simply applying pressure with your thumb.
First, locate this acupressure point on the inside of your wrist. Measure three finger widths up your arm, from the wrist line. Use your thumb to locate the point in the hollow between the two bones and in the middle of the tendons. A slight soreness will let you know you have found the right location. Press the point firmly while you breathe out, and release pressure as you breathe in, repeating eight to twenty times on each wrist. You will get relief from nausea in five minutes time.
Doctors estimate that the majority of pregnant women suffer from morning sickness. Many experience nausea and vomiting during labor. So, you are certainly not alone. Now, you know, there is no reason to continue suffering. Acupressure has been medically proven to help without any side effects. All it takes is an acupressure-trained thumb!
