Nausea is one of the common pregnancy ailment faced by most of the pregnant women, especially during the early months of pregnancy. In fact, about 80 % of pregnant women have to suffer from nausea during pregnancy. What causes nausea can not be outlined, but it usually occurs due to high levels of hormones.
Do not worry about nausea a lot, as it is a problem just for a short phase and by the second trimester things definitely get better. Read on to learn the various tips to learn the excellent ways to alleviate nausea.
Keep away from Nausea Triggers
The most common odors which provoke nausea include body odors, smell of stale or leftover food in the fridge, strong coffee fragrance, cigarette smoke, solvent fumes, garbage smell, scented cosmetics and toiletries. In some cases even the pungent aromas from the kitchen cause nausea. Simply try to keep away from these nausea triggers as far as possible.
Drown the Nausea
Drinking lots of water is the best way to reduce nausea. Women, who drink at least a glass of water every hour, suffer a lot less nausea. Every time you get up in the night, do sip some water as it helps a great deal to save you from morning sickness when you start your day.
Drinking water is excellent during pregnancy as it saves your from having sugar in the urine, and other infections. You can check if you are drinking a sufficient amount of water, simply by noticing your urine color. Dark urine having an extra strong smell signifies that you are not drinking enough water. If your urine is clear, it is a positive sign that your body is sufficiently hydrated.
Opt for Citrus Cure
Simply sniff a slice of lemon; it is an instant remedy for pregnant women which helps a great deal. Alternatively you can drink a lemon based drink, or just drink water mixed with few drops of lemon juice.
Dont run on Empty
You can easily prevent nausea in the morning just be eating few cream crackers before you even get out of bed. Keep a pack of crackers always handy near by your bed so that you can munch a little as soon as you wake up. Eat plenty of mini meals during the day to keep your stomach pleased and your blood sugar steady.
Avoid Fried and Spicy foods
Fried, fatty and spicy foods cause and also intensify nausea. Therefore, do not indulge in fried food as they take long to digest and also lead to heartburn and uneasiness.
Use Acupressure Wristbands
There is a pressure point about two inches just above the crease on the inner aspect of the wrist, when itis stimulated, it helps to relieve nausea and vomiting associated with pregnancy and sea sickness. You can buy special acupressure wristbands available at pharmacy and wear on your wrist. This acupressure wristband acts as a great remedy for nausea, as it contains a special button that presses exactly on the vomiting sensitive pressure point. In case you cannot find these magic wristbands, you can use your fingers to apply pressure by locating the pressure point, which is two thumb widths from the crease of your wrist.
Try Ginger Cure
Drinking Ginger tea is one of the time tested and common household remedy to cure nausea. Generations of expectant moms have found that by drinking ginger tea early morning, helps to a great extent to get rid of nausea. Alternatively you can simply eat ginger biscuits with normal tea to avoid nausea. Chewing a small piece of fresh ginger also helps to avoid nausea.

MYTH #1. CANNABIS IS A DRUG
No, actually, Cannabis is just a plant. Even Marijuana (MJ), is just a flower that is produced by the plant. I know its a funny looking flower, but thats all it really is. The plant and/or flower itself is not a drug. It is the way that people choose to use the flowers that makes it a control substance that the world considers a drug. If you were to use Industrial Hemp (HI) to make clothing, would those clothes be considered drugs? The flowers produce seeds that are often used in making a nutritional hemp seed milk, is that a drug? No way!
Cannabis is NOT a drug. Certain parts of the plant can be used to make medications and drugs, but the plant itself cannot be called a drug. Its just a plant.
MYTH #2. INDUSTRIAL HEMP AND MARIJUANA ARE THE SAME PLANT
Quite a few persons these days are under the assumption that because older generations still refer to MJ as Hemp, that it makes IH and MJ the same plant. Most of these individuals come from three main categories; Those who could care less, those who want to confuse you (the government) and the confused/misinformed.
Saying that the IH plant (cannabis sativa indica) and the MJ producing plant (cannabis sativa sativa) are the same plant, is like saying that a Douglas Fir tree and a Cedar tree are the same plant because they are both evergreens and both grow in similar conditions. They are two very different plants, that look different, smell different and have different uses. I mean, how often to do you see a person with a cedar Christmas tree?
IH cannabis and MJ producing cannabis are the same in the sense that they both come from the Cannabis genus, they are both green and they both grow in similar environmental conditions, the rest is completely different. They look different, smell different, grow different and are used as separate resources. IH has little to no THC at all, but holds way more health values. MJ producing plants are not as easily used to create clothing, are shorter with wider leaves and are better pain killers.
Those who claim that IH plants and MJ plants are the same are either misinformed, they dont care about the difference or they want you to believe it is too difficult to tell the difference so they can continue to keep it illegal.
MYTH #3. SMOKING MARIJUANA IS COMPLETELY HARMLESS
No, actually, smoking anything is bad for the lungs. Though it is the Smoke itself, not the MJ that is harmful in this situation. Any form of inhaled smoked is bad for the lungs, they arent built to handle a lot of it and by smoking anything you are irritating your lungs.
Another way that smoking MJ can become harmful is through what I call PTDs (Paraphenalia Transmitted Diseases). Did you know that by sharing a pipe, bong or other mouth accessory for smoking MJ, that you can catch contagious diseases that are normally only passed on through direct contact with a person? Mono, pink eye and herpes are just a few things you could catch from a strangers piece. They also make you more susceptible to more common contagious diseases like colds, tuberculosis or influenza.
Thankfully, most PTDs are as easily prevent as STDs with some simple provolactics. In this case though, it isnt a condom that will help you become 99.9% safe against offending bacteria and diseases from paraphernalia, its something as simple as a small alcohol pad that takes up the same amount of space in your pocket as a condom. Learning to carry an alcohol pad and to start wiping off your mouth pieces before and after you use them with friends or especially those you do not know very well, can save your health.
Of course, abstinence is always best if you can help it. Not sharing utensils with others is the best way protect yourself all together. This is often another reason that many cannabis advocates prefer cookies or brownies to smoking, as it completely cuts out the risk from PTDs. Just remember, its not the MJ that causes the harm here, its your abundance or lack of common sense. =)
MYTH #4. MARIJUANA IS NON HABIT FORMING
I think many people confuse the terms addictive and habit forming as the same thing, when really, they are separate. Addictive substances are those which cause chemical reactions in our physiological bodies that causes them to want to continue using certain substances and creates an addiction.
A habit is something that we psychologically get into, usually because we like doing something. Often, an addiction can often ride along next to a formed habit, but a habit does not always go along with an addiction. MJ is definitely habit forming. Even if that habit is only once in a blue moon, it still becomes a habit. Not for any strange chemical reason, but simply because MJ is a pleasant plant to utilize.
MYTH #5. IF CANNABIS WERE LEGALIZED, EVERYONE IN THE WORLD WOULD BECOME LAZY POT HEADS
Recent studies in Canada have shown that when Cannabis was legalized, only a slight increase in the amount of users came about, and quickly after that, the rates actually dropped below the long time average of users. Whats more, the rate of drinking and driving dropped tremendously without increasing those who drive under the influence of MJ.
Having the irrational fear that legalizing any drugs or currently illegal substances would lead to an uncontrollable population of drug addicts, is simply a fear installed by the government propagandist to keep otherwise logical persons from seeing the truth. I mean, look at alcohol. It is legal and only between 8 to 10% of our society are Alcoholics by medical terms.
MYTH #6. MARIJUANA IS A GATEWAY DRUG
MJ is no more a gateway drug than Milk or Coffee, and especially Cigarettes. As a teenager, the first thing I had ever experimented with was alcohol, followed by cigarettes. Before that, the only drugs I had had were caffeine and milk, both very addictive and yet not illegal for children to have. After I was 15, I tried MJ and in truth, the only that lead to was a fascination for Mycology and the study of Cannabis.
In fact, it wasnt cannabis use that later took me farther into the world of drugs and experimenting. In fact, it was SCHOOL, CIGARETTES and DOCTORS that did that. You werent considered cool enough to hang out with teens or adults that had other drugs, unless you smoked cigarettes. You could smoke all the pot you wanted, that didnt get you to the in crowd. Its alcohol and cigarettes that got you into the in crowds and brought on more situations involving drugs.
Even as an adult, I find it rare to find an MJ provider that deals in other deeds. Though you might occasional run into a drug dealer that has some MJ for sale, it is usual not purchased from them for low quality, inadequate storage and the change of getting something laced.
The only thing Cannabis a gateway to, is other realms of awareness, creativity and health.
MYTH #7. MARIJUANA MAKES YOU VIOLENT
This is a myth brought on by the Refer Madness generation, who were made to believe that smoking cannabis caused psychosis, made people beat their children or somehow turned you into a violent psychopath. This myth is one of the funniest and couldnt be farther from the truth.
In reality, cannabis doesnt make you do anything out of what you would normally do. Unlike alcohol or other drugs, MJ only amplifies your current psychological situation, it doesnt modify it.
MYTH #8. USING MARIJUANA MAKES YOU LAZY
Have you ever been to Seattle Hempfest? Or maybe you have checked out some of the world famous Cannabis cups? These are GREAT examples of the insinuative and hard work put together completely by MJ users. In fact, there are many scientists around the world who have also proved that cannabis doesnt make a person stupid either.
The truth is that MJ wont make you lazy, but because it amplifies the way you are anyways, if you have a tendency to be lazy already, MJ will amplify that. However, laziness can sometimes be a very good motivation for innovation, as many of the worlds laziest people have come of with some of the worlds greatest inventions. Can you say car or telephone?
MYTH #9. LEGALIZING INDUSTRIAL HEMP IS JUST ABOUT LEGALIZING MARIJUANA
Not all that would like to see MJ legalized, care about IH being legalized, and not all those who push for IH legalization agree that MJ should be legalized. They may come from the same plant genus, but they are two separate subjects. There are plenty of persons under the belief that legalizing IH is just about getting closer to MJ legalization, but this just isnt true.
Those who want MJ legalized, are either medicinal users, recreational users or advocates of ending the drug war and the taxes they have to pay on it. Those who would like to see IH legalized, would like to save the economy, get rid of BIG OIL and BIG PHARMA. There are many people that would like to see IH and MJ legalized, as all of Cannabis should be legal anyways, but they understand the differences and vote for them for those separate reasons. Just because IH might be legalized, does not mean that MJ would be directly legalized, though legalized MJ would most probably give clear rein to IH.
MYTH #10. CANNABIS CAN SAVE THE ECONOMY
Yes and No. Cannabis can help to save the economy. It cannot do it all by itself. Cannabis can help give alternative ideas for businesses, bring about creative economic growth and start to degrade the use the of petroleum, medical insurance and pharmaceuticals. It can bring green fuels, better farming practices, new industries and its a plant that anyone can grow, just about anywhere.
MYTH #11. PREGNANT WOMEN SHOULDNT USE MARIJUANA
Actually, the use of MJ by pregnant women is an ancient practice. It was even included in the pharmacopedia for a very long time, until 1936. Cannabis provides a safe alternative to moderating blood pressure, nausea, appetite, cramps, labor pains and fatigue. Its side effects are low to the mom, and non existent to the unborn child. Much safer than many of the drugs they often prescribe to pregnant women, that are clearly labeled with side effects such as miscarriage, still birth, birth defects and/or life long disorders for the soon to be mother.
As of yet, there are very few Obgyns or doctors who will tell a pregnant mother that using Cannabis is bad for her or for baby, though they will suggest that you eat instead of smoke your cannabis, to prevent harming your lungs. In most cases, they look the other way and the worst side effect a pregnant mother will have to deal with, is the governments attempt to seduce you through sending a counselor or social worker to talk to you when your baby is born. So long as you are honest with your doctor about your cannabis use and you are not using other substances, there is nothing wrong with a pregnant woman choosing a safer alternative to help her get through the pains of gestation.
Astronomers from the Minnesota Planetarium Society have found that because of the moon's gravitational pull on Earth, the alignment of the stars has been pushed back by about a month. According to conjecture, star signs were created some 2,000 years ago by tracking where the sun was in the sky each month. Not to be confused with the science of astronomy, which studies actual planets and stars, the astrologists amongst us concentrate on horoscopes. Horoscopes are determined by the position of the sun on the day you were born and how it lines up with the stars.
"When astrologers say that the sun is in Pisces, it's really not in Pisces," noted Parke Kunkle, a member of the group's board, especially now because of the gravitational pull. A 13th constellation, Ophiuchus, has been added to the Zodiac calendar and most of the dates for the signs weve so long associated with our birthdates, have, according to the Minnesota Planetarium Society changed. This has generated excitement and quite a bit of hype for Assisted Living Facilities Los Angeles residents and those in other parts of the nation. Whether or not people believe that Zodiac signs really determine personality traits, the interest generated among my colleagues upon hearing my article topic, confirms that many people not only know their astrological sign, but they identify with many of the attributes.
Yikes, does this means the latent, fiery temperament and radiant warmth of a Leo may be extinguished? That the lion will no longer attract people because of their frank, open, honest and endearing likeability? The change may leave the optimistic, intellectual, straightforward, freedom loving Sagittarius rigid and restless. The archer may find him or herself unable to hit the bulls-eye and become disillusioned. The earths newly discovered skew could actually be good news for the former conflicted Pisces fish. No longer will they suffer the internal struggles of their souls eternally swimming against the current in opposite directions.
All kidding aside, this celestial shift and addition of Ophiuchus in the zodiac calendarcould cause an identity crisis for some people. The many seniors who rely on astrologers to reveal what their futures hold could become victims of greed. Assisted Living Facilities Los Angeles staff have informed their residents of possible scams and fraud situations that could arise due to the Ophiuchus hype. Plenty of seniors have been victim to zodiac hotline fraud cases. Unsuspecting seniors call these hotline numbers to get their fortunes told while their credit cards are charged exhorbitant fees. In order to prevent such cases many Assisted Living Facilities Los Angeles have security measures put in place so that they can monitor and supervise their residents to prevent them from being swindled.
At one time or another, many of us have secretly wished to know what the future holds in store for us. The yearning for such information has existed for as long as human beings have been able to speculate and hypothesize about events to come. It is a curiosity that fuels ongoing interest in the vague prophesies of French prophet, Nostradamus more than half a millennium after his Centuries forecast was penned and makes today's newspaper incomplete without an astrology section. Many religions lay claim to have knowledge of the future but their predictions are about eternity, not tomorrow. Yet, it is the tomorrows, about which we are most imminently interested in.
There is no evidence indicating there is a mystical cure for this insatiable thirst to know future events. No astrologer contemplating the distribution of the heavenly bodies, no shaman pondering the configuration of chicken innards, no fortuneteller examining the topography of a client's palm can do more than guess at tomorrow's contents. Still there is a large segment of our society, which believe that our lives are ordered by the stars, the gods, the fates or perhaps other people with occult powers. Every spring the Chamber of Commerce in a small community on the outskirts of Chicago sponsors a "Fortunetelling Day" at a local shopping mall. They invite tellers to perform and set up booths for them, then bus in senior citizens for a day of shopping and fun.
The fortune tellers charge five dollars a reading and each earns several hundred dollars for their day's work. When a bunco detective suggested that the event be discontinued because of the probability that the tellers were inviting exploitable clients to visit their fortunetelling parlors and then fleecing them, his recommendation was rejected. Fortunetelling is legal in that community, he was reminded. Not only that, but "Fortunetelling Day" is one of the most popular events of the year. Fortunetelling and astrology continues to hold fascination for many, with the attitude that, I dont necessarily believe in it, but what can it hurt?
Well, actually plenty. One mother and daughter fortune telling team of East Peoria, Illinois, are still free and are assumed to be somewhere in Europe. They were charged with swindling fifteen women out of $600,000. Additional victims are known to the police but those victims refuse to press charges or testify in court. Most were too humiliated and embarrassed at being so gullible. Undoubtedly, there are other, unknown victims who for the same reason will not admit their involvement with the fortunetellers. One of the victims, a widow who agreed to testify, was swindled out of over $200,000 in cash and jewelry. The fortunetellers also got her to buy them a $30,000 Cadillac DeVille. The second largest loser was a woman taken for $180,000. Like the others, most of the victims were elderly although there were several college-educated professional women in their twenties and thirties among the victims. Assisted Living Los Angeles
The moral of the story if you choose to indulge in fortune telling and horoscope reading; be aware that fortunetellers and astrological advocates with smoky voices surrounded by candles, potions, magic balls and charms, may not be the best source to determine if youll find happiness, or if youll have enough money left at the end of the month to pay your electrical bill. Possibly not.
For hard-core horoscope enthusiasts, the following is the new astrological calendar:
Capricorn: January 20 - February 16Aquarius: February 17 - March 11Pisces: March 12 - April 18Aries: April 19 - May 13Taurus: May 14 - June 21Gemini: June 22 - July 20Cancer: July 21 August 10Leo: August 11 - September 16Virgo: September 17 October 30Libra: October 31 - November 23Scorpio: November 24 November 29Ophiuchus: November 30 December 16(the new one)Sagittarius: December 17 January 20
You can check the new astrological calendar to see if your zodiac sign has shifted and/or if you are now an Ophiuchus. If you think Ophiuchus is a tongue twister it has also been known as Serpentarius.
