So many pregnant women have morning sickness issues with nausea and vomiting, but a physician, Michael Gerber, MD, HMD, writing in the October 2012 issue of the Townsend Letter (a publication that examines alternative medicine) noted in an article in the Monthly Miracles section, “Hyperemesis Gravidarum: Reversing Autotoxic Hormone Reactivity/Antihormone Therapeutics,” that by administering an intramuscular injection of vitamin K2 (the form known as mentetrenone) in a specific amount mentioned in the article, for nausea and vomiting due to pregnancy, it helped.
The physician accredited Jonathan Wright, M.D. for teaching this in the past. See, Knocking out morning sickness and Dr. Jonathan Wright – Healthier Talk | Natural Health News. In one case, when the vitamin K2 didn’t work to alleviate the nausea of a pregnant patient, a specific dose of progesterone homeopathic drops worked well in that patient, according to Dr. Gerber’s article. According to Dr. Wright’s article, Knocking out morning sickness natural vitamin K is safe for developing infants, and it’s actually given to babies immediately after birth to prevent “hemorrhagic disease of the newborn,” which is actually a manifestation of vitamin K deficiency.
Causes of morning sickness
What physicians think causes morning sickness, which is the nausea that begins early in pregnancy is the dramatic increase in progesterone. Some physicians surmise that patients who experience nausea and vomiting as soon as they become pregnant or during the first trimester (and sometimes longer) may be due to an allergy to their own progesterone hormone increase during pregnancy. And even in bioidentical hormone therapy after menopause, doctors still see some patients responding to it with nausea, possibly due to the person allergic or toxic to their rising hormones. See, Townsend Letter, the Examiner of Alternative Medicine, Online.
Vitamin K shots sometimes are used for a variety of causes of nausea, including acute stomach flu, gasdtritis, GERD, and chemotherapy reactions. If you experience severe nausea and vomiting from pregnancy, talk to your doctor about vitamin K shots or show your physician the article by Dr. Gerber.
Also, some people use homeopathic remedies for morning sickness during pregnancy, and that may not help, or even the vitamin K shots may not help some severe cases of morning sickness. So what would a doctor do in the scenario where nothing seems to work? You might refer your physician the work of Lee Cowden, MD, who suggested other physicians look to possible allergies to hormones. Some people are so allergic to their own hormones on the increase during pregnancy, for example progesterone, that they respond with nausea and vomiting. During pregnancy progesterone increases 40-fold.
If someone is allergic to her own progesterone, the homeopathic response in holistic health practice may be a type of homeopathic progesterone, since homeopathy focuses on giving a specific dose of what the person is allergic to (progesterone in that case) in order to decrease the sensitivity to progesterone. In the case of progesterone homeopathic drops, it helped the woman mentioned in Dr. Gerber’s article, which describes the specific dose of the drops he used for his pregnant patient who had morning sickness.
This may not work in the case of someone allergic to a food that causes shock, but in the case of the woman allergic to her body’s own progesterone, it worked, according to the article by Dr. Gerber. Check out the Townsend Letter article and show it to your own physician if you’re concerned about morning sickness. More than 50,000 American women are hospitalized annually due to hyperemesis gravidarum. Some terminate wanted pregnancies because of the debilitation of the disease, lack of information and the lack of social and medical support for nausea and vomiting during pregnancy.
