Travelling the world – for business or pleasure – is now easier than ever. But whether your journey is by air, road, rail or sea it can be a miserable experience if you suffer from travel sickness.
The nausea, dizziness and vomiting caused by any form of transport are triggered by a confusion of messages received in the brain. Although you may be sitting motionless in a seat, your senses tell you that you are actually moving. Contrary to common belief, the resulting nausea is not “all in the mind” and is experienced by children and adults alike.
Early signs of travel sickness include quietness, headaches and lethargy, often followed by uncontrollable vomiting.
Almost 300,000 women in Australia become pregnant each year; up to 80% will at some point suffer from morning sickness. Most mothers-to-be find their symptoms ease around week 14 but for an unlucky few, the nausea and vomiting may continue throughout the pregnancy.
Not surprisingly, most women are wary of treatment for morning sickness in case it harms their unborn child. Fortunately, Sea-Band provides an easy and natural way to combat morning sickness without taking drugs.
Nausea and vomiting is a common and unpleasant side effect of Chemotherapy treatment for cancer patients – often continuing for a number of days and impacting their daily lives.
Sea-Band is clinically proven to reduce these nausea and vomiting symptoms. What’s more, cancer patients can also apply it themselves, which can provide a psychological boost thanks to the feeling of being in control.
This is one of the reasons why nurses and doctors encourage the use of Sea-Bands to help patients control their symptoms and – in consequence – their reaction to treatment and recovery.
Sea-Band relieves nausea by applying pressure on the Nei Kuan acupressure point on each wrist by means of a plastic stud.
Acupressure involves applying pressure with the hands to acupoints and meridians, with some meridians, specifically Pericardium 6 (P6) being particularly powerful in helping regulate blood flow, calming the mind and relieving nausea and vomiting.
