Try Acupuncture or Chinese herbs for:

Morning Sickness:

The experience of morning sickness is very unpleasant. Nausea, throwing up, not being able to keep food down, queasy feeling in stomach, exhaustion, dizziness and just feeling unwell can really get you down.

Constipation, Vaginal discharge

Sluggish bowels or irritating vaginal discharge can be frustrating.

Treatment for Pain
