Let's evaluate a few of these common tips:

emember Grandma? She always had a remedy in her kitchen for every single ache, discomfort or pain. Well, maybe your grandma is not like that, but right now you can borrow mine. Here is a list of home remedies for everything I could think of. Remember, if you are having medical problems, please contact your healthcare practitioner.


  • warm, relaxing bath
  • massage
  • tension reducing exercises (such as shoulder circling)
  • relaxation routines
  • hot packs or cold packs on the back of the neck or shoulders
  • cold packs on the forehead
  • drink more water and/or juice


  • Ginger Tea, Mint or Peppermint tea
  • Eat slowly
  • Eat several small meals


  • drink plenty of fluids – preferably water or juice
  • use a footstool while sitting on the toilet
  • eat fresh fruit and roughage
  • moderate exercise – walking

Morning Sickness – a favorable sign that the pregnancy will continue successfully!

  • drink plenty of fluids – preferably water or juice
  • eat small, frequent, non-greasy meals with little odor
  • crackers – preferably whole grain for nutritional value
  • fresh fruits, un-sugared
  • a piece of (whole grain) toast before getting out of bed
  • peppermint oil or peppermint tea
  • chamomile tea
  • liquid chlorophyll
  • raw almonds
  • parsley (tea or in salads)
  • extra vitamin E
  • extra rest
  • reduce stress
  • cut back on vigorous exercise.
  • Vitamin B6 – Vitamin B6 is also important because it strengthens the immune system, aids nerve impulse transmission, assists with energy metabolism, and synthesizes red blood cells. You can get the B6 you need from food sources as well as a vitamin supplement. A large banana provides almost an entire milligram of this B vitamin. Brown rice, lean meats, poultry, fish, avocados, liver, whole grains, corn, and nuts are also high in vitamin B6. So, provided you can stomach them, you may want to add some of these foods to your diet along with the vitamins.

  • cool-mist vaporizer
  • saline nose drops
  • rest
  • liquids
  • honey and lemon


  • rest

Sleeplessness – common in late pregnancy

  • take a brisk walk each day
  • warm bath
  • warm milk
  • massage
  • soothing music
  • a dull book (if you find yourself awake in the middle of the night)
