The following are two questions presented to Dr. Leia on treating pregnancy symptoms with natural remedies.
Natural Remedies for Pregnancy Anxiety
Question for Dr. Leia: I am 5 months pregnant and I am experiencing anxiety.
I have been searching for a natural medication that I can take that is safe during pregnancy and breastfeeding.
I came across Triple Complex Nerve Tonic. It says that this product is perfectly safe to take while pregnant because tissue salts are naturally in the body. Have you heard of this and would you recommend it to be safe during pregnancy?
Dr. Leia’s Answer: After reviewing the product’s ingredients, I find that the tonic’s ingredients are simple cell salts, also known as tissue salts. Homeopathic remedy products, consisting of tissue salts are considered a type of homeopathy and should be perfectly safe to take during pregnancy.
Homeopathy and tissue or cell salts are considered a form of energy medicine whereby the ingredients have been diluted so much that no physical evidence of the original product can be detected and measured in the solution. Homeopathy and cell salts have withstood the test of time, and over the past two hundred years have proven to be safe, harmless, and effective, much to the bafflement of modern medicine and scientists.
The cell salts can be described as homeopathic dilutions of essential minerals which are found in exact proportions in each cell of the body and are crucial and necessary for the health of the organism. You may rest assured that there are no chemical drugs used in this preparation, and because of the minute doses of minerals present in this product, there should be no side effects.
As always, please follow the product’s directions for dosing in order to obtain maximum relief and effectiveness.
I hope this helps to explain to you an unusual form of natural medicine.
Natural Remedies for Morning Sickness
Question for Dr. Leia: My daughter needs something for pregnancy because she is experiencing nausea and vomiting. Do you have some suggestions of natural approaches to relieve morning sickness?
Dr. Leia’s Answer: There is a wonderful Chinese herbal formula called Pill Curing. You may obtain this natural herbal medicine from your local acupuncturist or Chinatown.
Even though pregnant women have varying degrees of nausea and vomiting during the first trimester, it is also helpful to eat several small meals throughout the day, and to keep the food bland. Usually it is called “morning sickness” because of the low stomach acid upon rising in the morning, but this condition can also persist throughout the day. Adding digestive enzymes might also help.
