LEICESTERSHIRE, England, Oct. 27, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- No less an authority than the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) has endorsed acupressure wrist bands as useful, safe treatments for morning sickness. Sea-Band (http://www.sea-band.com/) has been a respected UK-based maker of these bands for more than 30 years, and is now expanding its product lineup to include ginger gum and lozenges – also proven to relieve nausea.
According to JAMA, at least 85 percent of women experience some degree of morning sickness. Contrary to the condition's name, morning sickness can happen any time of day. Sea-Band conducted its own survey to provide additional insights. Among the findings: one in four women deal with morning sickness for longer than 10 weeks; half of all pregnant women must restrict their diets to combat morning sickness; and one in three report being late or missing work entirely because of the severity of their symptoms.
Sea-Band is a preferred morning sickness solution for many reasons. First, the product is 100% natural and topical. Based on the ancient Chinese art of acupuncture, it works using nerve stimulation rather than drugs. Sea-Band is equally effective for other types of nausea, including motion sickness and nausea associated with chemotherapy. One band worn on each wrist applies constant pressure to the P6 acupressure point. This pressure causes the release of chemicals (endorphins) that neutralize the body's nausea impulse.
Since Sea-Band is drug free, the product has no reported side effects and can be used for as long and often as necessary. Pregnant women who endure morning sickness for hours on end can appreciate this quality. Sea-Band can also be washed and re-used without reducing its effectiveness.
Pharmaceutical solutions for nausea vary in effectiveness and often come with side effects of their own, such as drowsiness and dry mouth. In addition, these drugs are typically not safe for children. Sea-Band, on the other hand, has been approved by the FDA for treating morning sickness in pregnant women, as well as general nausea in both adults and children.
The JAMA article on morning sickness remedies also highlighted the power of ginger to control symptoms. Sea-Band has recently launched two new products – ginger gum and ginger lozenges – incorporating this traditional herbal medicine. Both ginger products are available at CVS and Walgreens pharmacies in the U.S., and Sea-Band acupressure bands are sold in major pharmacies throughout North America and in over 60 countries.
Approved by the FDA, Sea-Band wristband is a leading drug-free remedy for nausea, dizziness and vomiting. The healing principle behind Sea-Band is the ancient Chinese art of acupressure.
Clinically tested, the bands work within five minutes after being applied and can be worn at the onset of nausea and for as long as needed or reused if nausea returns.
