Wristband Nausea Relief

Updated on January 28, 2012

Do wristbands really help in nausea relief?

All of us, at one time or another, has experienced nausea. This is a sensation accompanying the urge but not always leading to vomiting.

Nausea can be caused by any of the following:

Motion sickness: The word motion says it all. Anything that is moving. Symptoms experienced include pallor of the skin, feeling weak, nausea and vomiting. Some feel the discomfort in the stomach, headache or dizziness. One who experiences motion sickness while riding a boat (seasickness), or riding an airplane (airsick) or even a car (carsick.) A friend of mine also shared how he experienced motion sickness when he was riding a roller coaster in an amusement park, swearing he had lost interest in amusement parks forever!

Morning sickness: It is but natural that some women also have morning sickness when they are pregnant. Although the term morning may be misleading as one can feel nauseous anytime during the day.

Chemotherapy: People with cancer often are recommended for chemotherapy. Most of these drugs used causes nausea and vomiting.

Other causes: nausea is also experienced when one has headaches like migraines, stomach viruses or food poisoning, overindulgence in food and drink, and emotional stress like fear, dread or anxiety

The above conditions cause nausea and those who experienced it are constantly finding a way to cure it.

Using Acupressure Wristband for Nausea Relief

If you haven’t heard of wristbands to give relief for nausea, then this is the best time to know more about it. This wristband helps by using acupressure. It works by causing a certain degree of pressure made to a certain point of the body, hence, this helps eliminate nausea before it starts. By disrupting the signals of nausea to the body, the feelings of nausea are eliminated before they even begin.

Using the wristband is a great idea since it is all natural without making chemical changes in your body like when you use medications or herbs. It is a safe and alternative treatment. A study has been made by psychologist Joseph Roscoe and his colleagues who tested the bands on 700 patients who had nausea from chemotherapy treatment. It was reported that twenty eight percent less nausea on the day of treatment than who didn’t wear any wristband. Because of this they had lessened their intake of anti-nausea medication.

How effective can it be for you?

I don't really know. It really depends on your belief as well. I also try to make sure that I deal with whatever is causing my nausea. For instance, if I need to go on a bus trip or plane ride, I make sure I get enough of sleep and avoid too much food before the trip.

If I have a migraine, I also make sure that I get a massage and enough sleep as well. Or I try avoiding watching tv or reading a book while in the car. I do a bit of deep breathing and imagine calming my stomach.

The best thing to do is try these wristbands yourself and see if it helps. I hope it does and you can enjoy more of the things you do.
