Hello! I am fairly new to the forums. I have been lurking for a little. I have had Morning Sickness 3x, and hope to not have it again. (Lord Willing we have another)
Mainly I want to go the natural route, following SHonda Parker's recomendations for preventing M-sickness/HG.
http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/Na ... essage/595
This is the basic Original protocol from Shonda Parker above
So I want to post my protocol. We think we might be TTC August 2008 or later next year?? So I have started supplements already and am hoping they help! I will change it as needed, and add more links and info on new products and information along. I do change my mind sometimes on products, ect.
My protocol for 10 months or so before start TTC...
I have already started quite a few of these things
1.----PreNatal Blend- 6 tablets a day (2 3x a day with meals)
http://supernutritionusa.com/productpag ... blend.html
http://www.mothering.com/discussions/sh ... ostcount=8
http://www.mothering.com/discussions/sh ... ostcount=6
The nutrients included are...
a. 100 mg+ B6
b. Vitamin K 150 mcg
c. 1000 mg Folic Acid
d. 1000 mg Vitamin C
e. 1200 Calcium/ 650 Magnesium/ 1000 Vitamin D
f. 300 Mg Papaya to help with digestion and be easy on stomach
g. high potency B-complex included
h. Spirulina, Red Raspberry, Alfalfa,ect
i. 200 mg DHA from Algae
j. 200 mcg B12
and MUCH more!
2.---- Fish oils NOW ultra Omega 3 enteric coated-3 a day before bedtime
1500 mg EPA
3-----. Milk thistle - 3 capsules a day (1 cap 3x a day with meals)
I hope to take this through pregnancy to prevent Morning Sickness and Jaundice in baby.
Shonda says a Phytosome form of Milk thistle is better, it helps the body uptake the milk thistle better than regular milk thistle products in Crude form.

even helps if you are so sick you have IV,ect. The dosage is 1/4 tsp 3-4x a day. Can be taken as dropperfuls, like 1 dropper every 3 hours for a total of 6 droppers a day or 1 dropper every 2 hours for a total of 8 droppers a day maximum. Can be taken by 1/2 dropper under tounge even if you cant keep water down and hold under tounge as long as possible. It goes directly into bloodstream.

"One of my clients was on IV too sick to keep down sips of water, within 24 hours of taking Morning Sickness Balm, she quit vomiting and no longer needed IV."
"I felt sick and vomited in the morning, but I didnt need to go back to the hospital for IV. Before I started taking it [Morning Sickness Balm] I had been to the hospital 5 times"
4. Take the morning sickness balm in this manner
-before rising every morning
-If I cant hold down liquid or food, take 1/2 dropper every 30 minutes until food and/or water stays down, then continue with regular dosage
-hold under toungue for as long as possible to insure it goes directly into the bloodstream.
-take it religously, at the same times every day
5.Start NOW Gr8dopholis high quality 8 strain Probiotic, 1-2 capsules every time food goes into mouth, snack or meal
