In the natural remedy for habitual abortion the patient should be put to bed immediately and the bottom end of the bed rose on appearance of the first symptoms of possible abortion. Cold compresses at 60 degrees Fahrenheit temperatures should be applied constantly to the inner portion of the thighs, the vagina and the lumbar region. Compresses should be changed every 15 to 20 minutes. When the compress is removed for renewing, the surface should be rubbed with a warm dry flannel for half a minute or until reddened, before applying the compress again. At the same time, a hot application should be made to the feet.
Diet Therapy for Habitual Abortion
Dietary control is of supreme importance in the prevention of habitual abortion. The pregnant woman’s diet chart should be on the following lines:
Pregnant women should avoid refined carbohydrates, non-vegetarian food, coffee, sugars, and tea. They should also keep away from oily and fried foods as such foods lead to constipation, which is very harmful to pregnancy. Smoking or chewing tobacco and drinking alcohol must be strictly avoided.
Home Remedies for Habitual Abortion
Water Therapy for Habitual Abortion
It is wise that women with a history of repeated abortions should take on these techniques before conception and maintain them during the first 2 months of pregnancy.
1. A neutral or lukewarm water enema is a useful remedy for a constipated colon which is a major reason for the toxaemic condition of the uterus. This will ease the bowels and thus lessen any excessive pressure on the uterus and other pelvic organs.
2. A regular cold hip bath for duration of 10 minutes twice every day is very useful in relieving congestion and inflammation of the uterus.
3. Wet girdle packs, twice every day, on an empty stomach, also relieve congestions and infections in the uterus and other pelvic organs.
Yoga Asanas for Habitual Abortion
Hormonal imbalances can be set right by practicing yogic exercise. Yoga asanas such as Sarvangasana, Vajrasana, Bhujangasana, Shalabhasana, Dhanurasana, Paschimottasana, and Trikonasana are particularly helpful in improving thyroid, pituitary, adrenal and gonaidal endocrine functions and should be practiced on a regular basis by women who suffer from imbalances of this sort, up to the first 2 months of pregnancy.
