Nausea is an all too common condition. Nearly every person will struggle with nausea at one point or another in their lives. Whether the nausea is due to motion sickness, medical treatment such as chemotherapy, or even morning sickness during pregnancy, nausea can be an inconvenient and difficult thing. Adding to this difficulty is the fact that many anti-nausea medications have unwanted side effects, such as drowsiness. For the pregnant woman who is experiencing morning sickness, many of the medications that are designed to combat nausea just have not been tested sufficiently to demonstrate whether or not they are safe for the pregnant woman. The good news is that there are a host of alternative medications and therapies that people have successfully used to combat their nausea. One of the most interesting types of solutions is acupressure bands, such as the SeaBand Acupressure Bands.

SeaBand Acupressure Bands and other similar acupressure bands rely on ages-proven techniques of acupressure to relieve nausea, without medications that can have negative side effects or that can be harmful. SeaBand Acupressure Bands rely on the use of pressure points in order to alleviate feelings of sickness. Many people have had success using SeaBand Acupressure Bands for a variety of purposes. SeaBand Acupressure Bands can be used after nausea begins, to reduce the severity and duration of the symptoms, or they can be worn for a more prolonged use, helping to prevent the nausea altogether. If, for example, a woman with morning sickness tends to fell the most ill in the afternoons, she can put on her SeaBand Acupressure Bands after lunch, and take them off after dinner, helping her to get through that rough afternoon.

It is important to understand exactly how SeaBand Acupressure Bands work. SeaBand Acupressure Bands work by using plastic studs that are sewn into the elastic band. These plastic studs are used to put pressure on the “Nei Kuan” pressure point. The Nei Kuan pressure point, according to acupressure practitioners, is used specifically to reduce nausea and vomiting.

If you are looking for nausea relief and are considering alternative medications, SeaBand Acupressure Bands may be worth a try. Not everyone responds to acupressure in the same way, but even if they don’t work so well for you there is no health risk to you or your baby by using them.
