Medical treatments are available easily for preeclampsia. But with a little angel inside you, considering alternate or natural treatments is a safer idea. In some cases, the results may differ but on the whole these remedies and lifestyle changes could be and effective solution-
Have ginger, honey and lemon tea
Drinking ginger, honey and lemon tea 2-3 times a day is an effective remedy for preeclampsia. The ginger is a natural anti-inflammatory agent that helps in reducing blood pressure. The combination of these three ingredients keeps you hydrated and gently detoxifies too. Lemon is rich in vitamin C, which is crucial agent for managing blood pressure levels.
Do stretching exercises and walking
A combination of stretching exercises and walking is known for balancing high blood pressure and the same applies during your pregnancy stages too. However, remember to not exert yourself too much. 30 minutes a day is sufficient.
Stop smoking and drinking completely
You shouldn’t be doing it ideally but if you are, then you are simply risking your life along with your baby’s. Quit these two habits completely.
Have more of fibre
Think of fibrous and fresh fruits and vegetables along with oats, whole wheat, barely, etc. Remember that you should totally avoid processed foods as they do not provide any nutrition but definitely add useless calories. The more weight you gain, the higher are your risks here.
Drink lots of water
Staying hydrated is very important. Drink at least 12 glasses of water a day, though it does mean more trips to the washroom. But flushing out toxins and regulated flow of oxygen helps control blood pressure.
Natural and home remedies like the above are known to gently curb the signs of preeclampsia. However, you should consult a doctor and continue with medicines, if instructed.
