Acupuncture for Nausea of Pregnancy
Nausea of pregnancy or morning sickness is a normal and natural part of pregnancy. Nausea of pregnancy typically arises around 6-8 weeks of pregnancy. Although common, the symptoms can be debilitating. Many women suffer from scent sensitivity, nausea, vomiting, poor appetite, constant salivation, poor energy and inability to function in their day to day lives. Those with extreme nausea and vomiting are at risk of poor weight gain and dehydration. Acupuncture may be a supportive treatment option for many women.
