Morning Sickness Powder
Traditionally used to calm nausea and vomiting.
This powder is based on the Classical Chinese herbal formula Gan Jiang Ren Shen Ban Xia Wan. This formula was first described for use in the Chinese Medicine source text Jin Gui Yao Lue, thousands of years ago. It is traditionally used to calm symptoms of nausea and vomiting during pregnancy. This formula works by increasing blood flow to the digestive tract and warming the stomach and spleen, allowing the stomach energy to descend. According to the principles of Chinese Medicine, when stomach energy can descend appropriately the body does not experience nausea and vomiting. The ginger in this formula helps to warm the spleen and stomach, increasing blood flow and supporting digestion. The pinellia helps to eliminate stagnant dampness from the body and draw digestive energy downward, to restore it’s proper movement. The codonopsis and ginseng help to generate and restore healthy body fluid, vital during pregnancy and after one has experienced nausea and vomiting. Contrary to popular belief, ginseng is not a stimulant and is safe to take as needed at any time during the day or night, it simply supports overall health and vitality of the body and body fluid. Together, these herbs have the synergistic effect of creating comfortable, calm and healthy digestion.
