Sickness in pregnancy: the AOGOI promotes Lillipops
Sickness in pregnancy: the AOGOI promotes the icicles Lillipops
Reduce up to 70% of morning sickness due to pregnancy
Good news for pregnant women come from the National Congress of
Italian gynecologists held in Milan. An experiment conducted by the Italian
Hospital Midwives Gynaecologists (AOGOI) in 10 centers in September and October
showed that the use of a particular type of ice can reduce this phenomenon up to 95%.
"Nausea is a symptom most common of the pregnancy - said prof. Antonio Chiantera,
national secretary AOGOI -:Nausea affects 6 out of 10 women an din 1 to 2% of cases it
becomes very severe.The symptoms usually appear early and lasts from 30 to 40 days, but some patients
may continue until the eve of the birth. After the clinical issues relating to
the use of some drugs that later proved teratogenic (most well known is the
case of Benedictine in the '80s), there is extreme caution on the part of doctors
to prescribe medicines to combat it. For this reason, the availability of
natural remedies that have no side effects is an innovation of particular interest
to us gynecologists. Lillipops are now on sale in
Italian pharmacies, after the great success in England.
They are energizing, hydrating and help to alleviate nausea, heartburn, dry mouth.
The pack of 20 costs about 10 euro and are available in five flavors,
no sugar added, low-impact energy: grapefruit and tangerine, lemon and mint,
chamomile and orange, lime and vanilla, ginger (particularly useful).
Nausea is a particularly annoying problem, which can greatly limit the social
and working life in the early months of pregnancy, creating embarrassment
and discomfort and real physical problems. The Lillipops born from the
experience of a new mother: "When I was waiting for my third child I had
nausea, I felt sick and I was dehydrated. My sence of smell had gone and
I had no appetite - said Denise Soden, the English housewife who had the
first insight to this new remedy -. Then I discovered ice, I
could tolerate it, unlike water or other liquid, gave me relief and allowed
me to stay hydrated.
This amazing discovery was followed by a stage of research and experimentation that led
to the confirmation and allowed Lillipops to develop a safe product recommended by
gynecologists today(AOGOI). The flavors have been studied for different
symptoms - ginger relieves nausea, chamomile calms the stomach,
peppermint relieves heartburn - all are refreshing. "Some patients report
a particular benefit by eating them in the morning on an empty stomach as they
calm the nausea and facilitate the appetite. Also reported by some patients was that
they are very effective against stomach acid because it alleviates the
burning sensation - concludes Chiantera.
Everything that can improve the quality of life in this sensitive stage
of a woman's life, provided that it is safe, meets our favor. "
