A Shocking Cure To Morning Sickness and Preeclampsia May Make Some Women Cringe
A very bizarre yet scientifically researched remedy to morning sickness and preeclampsia is making some women cringe at the thought. For centuries, pregnant women have used natural remedies to ease symptoms of each ailment including teaspoon of ginger, a mint and herbal teas. But now, some research suggests you can even add oral sex to that list.
According to Gordon Gallup, a psychologist at SUNY-Albany, the best way to cure morning sickness during pregnancy is sperm.
But not just any sperm, it should be the sperm of the person who got you pregnant.
Gallup believes the reason a pregnant woman gets morning sickness is due to the unfamiliar semen in their body due to the pregnancy.
Gallup says in his findings that the woman’s body will initially reject the father’s semen as an infection and react to it by vomiting.
Gallup says the best cure for morning sickness is to ingest the father’s semen so her body can build up a tolerance to what’s already in her body.
His claims are not so far out there either. A 2000 abstract from the National Center for Biotechnology Information showed that oral sex and swallowing sperm is also correlated with a diminished occurrence of preeclampsia, a condition during pregnancy marked by s high blood pressure and protein in the urine after the 20th week, which is usually in the late second or third trimester of pregnancy.
The Natural Remedies For Morning Sickness Include:
- Vitamin B6
- Sugar solutions containing either glucose, fructose or phosphoric acid
- Acupressure wristbands
- Swilling mouthwash or sucking mints
- Eating crackers or dry toast half-an-hour before getting up
- Dipping a handkerchief in citrus-scented oils
- Eating ginger
- Eating little or often rather than big meals
