Pregnancy can bring great joy and happiness but also plenty of unpleasant side effects, such as aches and pains, nausea and vomiting, emotional ups and downs, hemorrhoids, stress and anxiety, heartburn, and swollen ankles. Traditional medicine doesn't offer many effective treatments that are non-invasive. With integrative medicine, the use of alternative therapies to treat pregnancy symptoms is common and helpful. A pregnant woman who is in the care of an integrative medicine provider may be referred to a massage therapist or chiropractor to help ease her back pain. She may take a homeopathic remedy or an herbal tea to help reduce morning sickness.
