Sea-Band Nausea Relief Bands Review & Giveaway


Did you know that 28 million Americans suffer from migraines! Are you one of them or do you know someone who does? If so, you understand that these chronic headaches are exceptionally debilitating and, on top of the intense pain, can trigger nausea that makes them even more uncomfortable to deal with (eight out of 10 people who are diagnosed with migraines report experiencing nausea).  Plus, nausea makes it difficult to keep down the medication needed to treat the migraine to begin with.



This is where Sea-Band Drug Free Nausea Relief Bands can help. A study conducted at the Berolina Clinik (which specializes in migraine and headache therapy) in Loehne, Germany, showed that 85% of chronic migraine sufferers who participated by wearing Sea-Band (acupressure wristbands better known for helping people with motion/travel sickness and morning sickness) during a migraine attack reported positive results:

  • 41 patients participated in the test; participants had, on average, suffered from migraines for more than 26 years
  • All participants had forgone the use of anti-emetics (anti-nausea drugs) for the purpose of this study
  • 83% indicated a perceptible reduction in nausea associated with migraine as a result of wearing Sea-Band
  • 44% indicated a significant reduction in overall (collective) migraine symptoms
  • Relief was reported after an average of 28 minutes  of wearing the Sea-Bands
  • Nearly all participants (98%) said they’d use Sea-Band again

How Sea-Band works…

Approved by the FDA, Sea-Band works by exerting constant, gentle pressure on a point on the inner wrist known as the Pericardium 6 (P6) acupressure point. It brings effective relief and can be used before or after the onset of nausea. Sea-Band has traditionally been used to effectively reduce nausea from morning sickness, travel sickness, chemotherapy and post surgery. The all-natural, drug-free, latex-free Sea-Band does not cause side-effects often associated with anti-nausea medication such as drowsiness, disorientation, dry mouth or possible interactions with other drugs. It’s safe for patients taking prescription medications, pregnant women and children. Packaged in a convenient carry-case, they are washable and reusable, and one size fits most.

My thoughts:
Before I was given these to review I had actually heard of them from my sister-in-law. She and her granddaughter both used them for car sickness on long trips. They loved them. When I was given the chance to try them I jumped on it because I hate nausea .. it's just a horrible feeling. And they worked great!!! I was also allowed to try the ginger gum...and even though the taste is a little strong at first it was very good at settling my stomach. If you are having problems with nausea I would highly recommend both of these products. :)
