Suffering with Nausea During Your 1st Trimester of Pregnancy?  You NEED Acupuncture!

(Aleesha D Acupuncture also helps Patients Suffering Nausea Due to Cancer Treatments)!

Why Get Acupuncture for Nausea:

  • Relief of Nausea/ Vomit
  • Improved Appetite
  • Improved Energy
  • Improved Mood
  • Improved Sleep

Nausea makes it difficult to eat regularly and to choose nutrient-rich foods. Just like when we suffer with the flu, we just try to eat a small bite of bland, easy-to-digest snack foods like crackers. This is not the way to feed a pregnancy! Your body needs EXTRA food with even MORE NUTRITION than ever before!

This is your body’s #1 job now.

Acupuncture is also very useful for improving overall energy, mood and sleep, all of which are decreased during pregnancy!

Acupuncture Treats Facial Wrinkles, too.

Other Tools in Your Acupuncturist’s Tool Box for Nausea:

  • Pressure point beads applied to wrists to take home
  • Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Food Therapy
  • Lifestyle Recommendations (based on individual patient intake)

Some licensed acupuncturists will give beads to wear home over the wrists for a sort-of extended treatment. The patient suffering with symptoms of nausea is usually pretty grateful for this as it allows for a steady appetite and better ability to function with everyday tasks.

Some foods/ teas/ herbs may be recommended for nausea to supplement with or to avoid during the first trimester.

(Many find either Ginger tea or Peppermint tea is helpful to relieve Nausea)

Lifestyle recommendations may be made by your acupuncturist, in addition to diet recommendations.

Remember, your body is doing A LOT right now!

Respect your body and yourself. Do NOT over do it.

Aleesha D Acupuncture will help you get through morning sickness during the first trimester and beyond. Acupuncture continues to be good during pregnancy and afterward for improving your body’s overall Qi. This is because during pregnancy, the body’s Qi (Energy) becomes stagnated. Pregnant patients feeling Qi Stagnation often complain of feeling tired and fatigue which is worse with stress and inactivity.

Well, Acupuncture DOES Help Lower Stress & Fatigue!

Common Symptoms of Qi Stagnation:

  • Irritability/ Mood swings
  • Bitter taste
  • Fatigue
