No two pregnancy journeys are the same; different women experience different symptoms. But a common and universal one is morning sickness. Also called nausea, such sickness occurs in the first few months of pregnancy, and may be prominent during any time of the day and not just the mornings. While seeking your gynecologist’s opinion is important, you can also count on some essential home remedies that can help you find instant relief.
One such remedy was shared by dietitian Akanksha J Sharda on Instagram. “Morning sickness is a common problem women face during pregnancy. Drinking curry leaves tea can help in providing relief from vomiting and nausea. Fuel your body with the goodness of kadi patta or curry leaves,” she shared.
How to make it?
1 glass – Water
10-15 – Curry leaves
1 tsp – Coriander seeds
*Boil water for five minutes and put the ingredients.
*Strain and drink.
“The concoction also helps remove knots in the stomach, flattens bloated belly, and acts as a refreshing detoxifying drink for women during pregnancy,” Vikas Chawla, Ayurveda expert, founder and director, Vedas Cure told indianexpress.com. “Coriander seeds are full of nutrients, rich in vitamin K, and relax stomach pain. They also prevent digestive ailments, loose motions, morning sickness, and vomiting. Together, they act as a shield against the continuous problem of morning sickness among expecting ladies,” Chawla said.
