The easiest way to lick seasickness!

B-natal is the vitamin B6 pop to soothe seasickness.      

It's true, that until you walk in anotherís shoes, you canít fully comprehend what that person feels. That is how my search began to find a therapy to relieve the nausea pregnant women experience.

The joy and excitement I felt when I became pregnant was quickly over-shadowed by bouts of seasickness, which often lasted throughout the day. It was a debilitating misery Iíd never encountered and for which I was completely unprepared.

 

I spoke with my doctor about any possible relief and was offered a prescription that might work, but I was not happy with that solution. I wanted something natural, effective and safe. Knowing my nutraceutical background, he referred me to a compounding pharmacist who was doing some work with a vitamin B6 treatment. I researched the subject thoroughly and found that vitamin B6 has been prescribed for nausea since 1942. Vitamin B6, also known as pyridoxine, is a water soluble vitamin and essential co-enzyme that aids in the metabolism of lipids, carbohydrates and proteins.

 

I contacted Lee Ori, the compounding pharmacist my doctor recommended, and discussed my ideas with him. Together, we came up with B-natalô, a TheraPopô, that contains the correct amount of vitamin B6 found to soothe seasickness and sugar Ė known to calm an upset stomach. In the sucker-form, the cherry flavor tastes good, is soothing and provides an oral distraction that is comforting. Finally, sweet relief for me and my fellow sisters who are suffering.

Ginger / Herbal:  Ginger and other Herbs are natural products that have been used throughout history to ease symptoms of seasickness.  The government does not regulate these products as they do with prescription medications.  Although the government does not regulate these products, there is no evidence that ginger causes any problems if taken during pregnancy for the moderate relief of nausea or vomiting.  As always, check with your doctor before taking any medication during your pregnancy.

Acupressure: Acupressure is applied by stimulating the P6 point on your wrist.  This stimulation blocks the nausea signal from going to the brain.  This is accomplished by wearing a bracelet with a button that stimulates the P6 point on the underside of your wrist.  This can be very effective on some women but does not work on every expectant mother.
