Travel Sickness can spoil your day.
*** We have four Sea-Band sets to give away
Travelling around 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.
Sea-Band is the innovative anti-nausea acupressure range from United Pacific Industries (UPI). Sea-Band has been clinically tested against nausea and vomiting for travel and all conditions that induce nausea. Nausea, dizziness and vomiting caused by any form of motion, 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. The resulting nausea is not “all in the mind” but a very real, physical reaction.
Early signs of travel sickness include quietness, headaches and lethargy, often followed by uncontrollable vomiting.
So how does Sea-Band really work?
The knitted elasticated wrist bands operate by applying pressure on the Nei Kuan acupressure point on each wrist by means of a plastic stud. Acupressure involves applying pressure to acupoints and meridians, with some meridians being particularly powerful in helping regulate blood flow, calming the mind, and relieving nausea and vomiting. One band must be worn on each wrist to be effective, and takes between two and five minutes to become effectual. The bands are washable, reusable and drug-free, so can be worn for extended periods of time without causing drowsiness or other side effects. The University of Pittsburgh Medical Center study found that using Sea-Bands acupressure on post-op patients reduced the incidence of nausea to 10% - a two-thirds reduction.
Besides travel and motion sickness, can Sea-Band help with any other ailments?
Sea-Band has also been clinically tested against nausea and vomiting for pregnancy, anaesthesia, chemotherapy and all conditions that induce nausea.
Cancer patients can apply Sea-Band themselves with ease. One reason why nurses and doctors encourage the use of Sea-Band is to help patients control their own symptoms in a natural, side effect free way.
Most women are wary of treatment for morning sickness in case it harms their unborn child. Sea-Band has countered this by offering a natural, side effect free product for treating nausea and vomiting associated with morning sickness. With up to 80% of pregnant women suffering from morning sickness, most find their symptoms ease around week 14. But for some, the nausea continues throughout the entire pregnancy. The 1990 ‘Sea-Band Trial in Motion Sickness’ study at the Hospital San Carlo Borromeo, Italy, found that morning sickness was reduced in 70% of women who used Sea-Band.
