There are many theories about  the causes of morning sickness. The main theory is the changing of hormone levels in the body particularly estrogen and how well the body is able to cope with this. Another theory is being physically sick is a way of riding toxins from the system which may affect the developing fetus. Research has shown is there are ways to help with morning sickness and supplements you can take to help your body deal with these drastic changes. And in some cases this can mean the difference in being bedridden to a functioning person.  As in normal everyday life  deficiencies can make us sick or unwell if we are not getting enough of some particular vitamin, nutrient ect. This may be exaggerated in  pregnancy when your body needs a high degree of vitamins and nutrients to create healthy life.
