Denver Acupuncture Morning Sickness Treatment
Are you in your first trimester of pregnancy? Are you nauseous ALL THE TIME, wondering why they call it “morning” sickness? Are your doctors offering you medications that you would prefer not to take?
Here are some quick facts about morning sickness. First, nausea typically continues throughout the day, not just in the morning. Second, morning sickness usually starts around week 6 of pregnancy and ends on its own around week 13. And third, acupuncture can resolve morning sickness at any time, usually within 3 to 4 treatments.
Denver Acupuncture Morning Sickness Treatment – How It Works
Chinese medicine has a unique explanation for why pregnant women suffer from nausea and vomiting in the first trimester. We call it Rebellious Stomach Qi. In Chinese medicine the stomach’s energy naturally travels downward. Early pregnancy confuses the stomach. The stomach senses the growing fetus as phlegm blocking its downward path. So the stomach directs its energy upward instead, trying to accommodate it’s new neighbor. Upward stomach energy manifests as nausea and vomiting.
The Denver Acupuncture morning sickness treatment focuses on the stomach, helping the stomach get used to the fetus. The treatment “harmonizes” the stomach, allowing it to resume it’s qi descending function. The treatment works quickly and effectively. Once the stomach has “accepted” the fetus, the nausea and vomiting cease for good.
We see in Chinese medicine, time and again, the strategy to bring the body back into balance. Something occurs that pushes the body out of balance, generating unpleasant symptoms. Chinese medicine identifies the imbalance, corrects it, and the symptoms are resolved.
