Pregnancy can be a beautiful time in a woman’s life – but it isn’t always easy.
As a practicing specialist in obstetrics and gynecology, Dr. Manny Alvarez, senior managing health editor of FoxNews.com is well aware of the challenges that come with carrying a baby. He knows his patients have a lot of restrictions when it comes to what they can put into their bodies to combat common health issues many women face during pregnancy on a daily basis.
So he turned to Dr. Pina LoGiudice, an acupuncturist and naturopathic doctor at Innersource Health in N.Y. for some natural ways to make the pregnancy experience a little easier.
“Certain medications and over-the-counter medications are not recommended for expectant moms,” Alvarez said. “And morning sickness is usually a sign of a viable pregnancy, but dealing with nausea morning, noon and night could be a nightmare.”
LoGiudice said she has found taking a ginger capsule to be the most effective when dealing with morning sickness.
