Morning Sickness Relief: Salt, Organs, and Ancestral Wisdom!
November 11, 2023
Do you know someone who's recently been blessed with the miracle of pregnancy? Ah, the joy of creating life! But wait, there's a little "bonus" that often comes along with this bundle of joy - the notorious morning sickness. And let's be real, whoever named it "morning sickness" was being overly optimistic. For many, it's more like all-day, all-night, uninvited guest that just won't leave!
If you, or someone you know, is grappling with this less-than-welcome tag-along, we hear you! It's like carrying around a queasy stomach on a roller coaster ride while trying to juggle your usual life stuff. Not exactly the glowing pregnancy experience you'd signed up for, right?
Understanding the Uninvited Guest
Morning sickness is often linked to mineral and nutrient deficiencies. When you're pregnant, your body is like a VIP lounge - your growing baby gets first dibs on everything! This can leave you feeling like you've had a run-in with a nutrient vacuum cleaner, and explains why you are feeling so crumby.
Enter: Nutrient-Dense Foods
A nutrient-dense diet before, during, and after pregnancy can be a game-changer. The Weston A Price Diet emphasizes the importance of foods rich in vitamins and minerals. At the heart of this philosophy are organ meats, nature's multivitamin!
Imagine foods as superheroes. Now, organ meats are like the Avengers of this superhero world. They are packed with vitamins and minerals that can help you tackle the morning (or all-day) sickness villain. Our Triple E Farms Ancestral Blend of ground beef and organ meat is like your personal superhero team!
When Organ Meats Aren't Your Thing
We get it, organ meats can be an acquired taste, especially when your stomach is playing flip-flop. If you're in this boat, try encapsulated organ meats from Heart & Soil or Optimal Carnivore. Same superpowers, but in a more palatable form.
The Mineral Deficiency Conundrum
Mineral deficiency during pregnancy is as common as unsolicited parenting advice. But modern foods grown in nutrient-depleted soils may not offer enough to replenish what you and your baby need. But fear not, there's a solution. Along with eating nutrient dense foods from local regenerative farms, you can also consider a supplement like Redmond Re-Lyte, a natural salt electrolyte that can help restore your mineral balance.
Remember, hydration is key, but it's essential to ensure your water has the right mineral balance or else it can possibly further depletion and make you feel worse.
Embrace Ancestral Wisdom
Remember, you're not alone in this. Traditional cultures had a village to support mothers through the rollercoaster of motherhood.
So, hang in there, super-mama! You're doing an incredible job. And remember, just like the roller coaster ride, this too shall pass.
With love, laughter, and a dash of empathy,
