With a healthy lifestyle and adequate diet, intestinal disorders in pregnancy can be prevented, relieved and combated.
The main natural remedies are natural remedies:
Increase fibre intake. A diet naturally rich in dietary fibre promotes intestinal transit and thus helps to prevent constipation and also to resolve it. By avoiding constipation, much is also being done to prevent the problem of hemorrhoids. The diet during pregnancy should therefore be rich in seasonal fruit and vegetables, as well as whole grains.
Drink plenty of water. Correct fluid intake is always important, but in pregnancy it is twice as important. Drinking water that promotes intestinal transit is often a very useful natural remedy to prevent and combat constipation.
Avoid sedentary work. If the course of pregnancy allows it and there are no contraindications to movement, moderate physical activity and an active lifestyle can help combat many intestinal disorders typical of pregnancy.
If the problem is mainly meteorism, limit the consumption of foods that encourage the formation of air in the belly, for example legumes, leavened bakery products, sweets and other foods that are too sugary. Cakes in particular, especially industrial desserts, should be avoided anyway, regardless of intestinal problems, as they help to increase body weight and blood sugar levels. Of course, all beverages with added carbon dioxide must be avoided.
Consume lighter and more frequent meals to facilitate digestion and avoid overloading.
Consume herbal teas with a carminative effect; fennel herbal tea is particularly indicated, which also promotes digestion. Before using natural herbal remedies, inquire about safety: some herbs are contraindicated during pregnancy; others are safe, but only at certain dosages.
And the ginger? Can you use it during pregnancy? Ginger is known to be an effective natural remedy against nausea, but it contains substances with mutagenic activity and this is why it is often not recommended to take ginger during pregnancy. In fact, there is no evidence of the teratogenic activity of ginger in pregnancy, but there is also no evidence of its safety.
