Just started seeing a wonderful TCM specialist to help with migraines - had acupuncture and was given some Chinese herbs. Within a week was feeling much better -awesome. However also just found out I am 4-5 weeks pregnant and subsequently have become a little nervous about taking the Chinese herbs -as I personally know nothing about them and their potential side effects on my developing baby. Though TCM specialist assured me they were safe so perhaps I should just accept that. Nevertheless I'm brand new to acupuncture and Chinese medicine and need a little more info for peace of mind. Below are the list of Chinese herbs
- Dangin gui 9g

- gui zhi 9g
- da zao 9g
- shing jiang 9g
- shiga cao 6g
- zhi keep 6g

Once you get pregnant, you should keep the risk of harm minimum.
Therefore, not suggest taking the herbs or others without the instruction of obstetrician-gynecologist.

For migraines, it is possible by some localized treatments, such as massage and acupuncture.
