I am 26weeks pregnant with my third baby and have been having bad back pain. I had an ultrasound and was told because of the way the baby is sitting I have severe hydronephrosis (fluid around my kidneys)
There are no kidney stones or obstructions. Is there anything I can do at home to help this?

Use 30 drops of Grapefruit seed extract per day in 1/4 glass of water.? Drink and followed by eating a cup of live yoghurt (add pink salt to taste).

Magnesium deficiency also can cause nausea in pregnancy as can B6 deficiency- when you take one B, take the whole complex- B50 at Walmart even- should help. 400 mg of Magnesium also- if you can't keep mag down, take a warm bath in epsom salts- magnesium sulfate- it will absorb through the skin.

02/05/2013: Pgrace from Hamilton, N replies: "Castor oil acts on baby as well. It can cause your child to expel meconium while in the womb, which is an aspiration risk. I would find something safer to use during pregnancy and labour."
and it made me wonder if magnesium could cause the same risk of the baby expelling meconium in the womb since magnesium tends to have a bowel loosening effect?

I blend this in my Vitamix blender and store in 1/2 c. containers in the fridge. I drink some first thing in the morning and whenver I start to feel cruddy. I never leave the house without it. It has worked wonders for me. I hope it helps you!!!
Note: The recipe sounds gross, but it has a surprisingly fresh taste to it that I quickly became accustomed to.

I stumbled upon this site accidentally five days ago and since then I have become a sponge. I absolutely love the community of people sharing their personal experiences with virtual strangers. Thank you all for giving your time and effort to help people be as healthy as can be the way the good Lord intended.

Here's my tonic:
In a cup of warm water I add:
1 tbsp organic apple cider vinegar (I use _____'s)
2 tbsp raw honey
1 tbsp molasses
I don't know if this is helping, but so far I have had NO morning sickness, very little dizziness, and feel much more energetic througout the day.
I also make a tea of raspberry leaves, lemon balm and plantain leaf in the evening. The raspberry leaves are said to help inhibit morning sickness, and help your body to create a strong amniotic sac to carry the baby to term; it also has a lot of calcium - a critical need during pregnancy. The lemon balm is soothing. The plantain leaf contains lots of B vitamins and is considered "poor man's spinach" - haha, I pick it out of my yard!
Hope that helps!
