A 33-year-old member asked:

Why do I feel nauseated by smells that never made me feel sick before?

1 doctor answer2 doctors weighed in
Dr. Robert Benner
Obstetrics and Gynecology 33 years experience
Oversensitive senses: The reasons for increased sensitivity to smells, and the cravings for and aversions to foods in early pregnancy are not clear. These probably had some survival benefit long ago, helping pregnant women to avoid foods that could harm a developing fetus. The biological reason is felt to be the elevated hormone levels of pregnancy but no one knows why some women are more severely affected than others.

A 44-year-old member asked:

Are foods cooked in healthier oils, like olive oil, less likely to cause nausea?

Dr. Pam Yoder
Specializes in Maternal-Fetal Medicine
Rule 1: Eat healthy : There is little evidence for what nutrients trigger nausea in certain women in early pregnancy. So unfortunately some must select compatible foods by trial and error. Because there have been many studies showing the benefits of olive oil over other oils, it would be advisable for women to try those first, in proper amounts. Then they should see their physician and nutritionist if nausea persists.

If this question is related to nausea of pregnancy then homeopathic nux vomica 30c 2-3 pellets as needed works wonders to reduce nausea. It can be taken for the few weeks(hopefully) that nausea occurs. This remedy also works for nausea in general.

Slow down: Most people take way too many supplements. Consider whether or not you really need to take them. Try splitting the dose and make sure to take plenty of water.
