Morning Sickness

What Causes Morning Sickness?

Morning sickness can have various causes, ranging in severity from 'needs attention' to 'very serious'.  Finding the true cause means ruling out or confirming each possibility – in other words, diagnosis.

Diagnose your symptoms now!
  • check your overall health status
  • learn what you should be doing right now
  • identify any nutritional deficiencies

Diagnosis is usually a complex process due to the sheer number of possible causes and related symptoms.  In order to diagnose morning sickness, we could:

  • Research the topic
  • Find a doctor with the time
  • Use a diagnostic computer system.
The process is the same, whichever method is used.

Step 1: List all Possible Causes

We begin by identifying the disease conditions which have "morning sickness" as a symptom.  Here are two possibilities:
  • Adrenal Fatigue
  • Dehydration

Step 2: Build a Symptom Checklist

We then identify all possible symptoms and risk factors of each possible cause, and check the ones that apply:
dry eyes
sugar/sweet craving
history of tender muscles
coffee consumption
diminished perspiration
infrequent daytime urination
regularly feeling unusually cold
breast soreness during cycle
low diastolic blood pressure
difficulty conceiving children
poor cold weather tolerance
joint pain/swelling/stiffness
... and more than 80 others

Step 3: Rule Out or Confirm each Possible Cause

A differential diagnosis of your symptoms and risk factors finds the likely cause of morning sickness:
Cause Probability Status
Dehydration 92% Confirm
Adrenal Fatigue 51% Possible
* This is a simple example to illustrate the process
