Tips and Tricks: Natural is always best. Foods like ginger, lemons, or the pectin of apples have been shown useful but when I’m sick the last thing I want is to put anything down in my mouth as food increases stomach acids. Women during pregnancy have an increase in acid reflux, hence the tums next to the night stand. Try acupressure on your wrist at P6 and peppermint essential oil first.
