Sea-Band for Morning Sickness
Almost 1 million women in Britain become pregnant each year; up to 80% will at some point
suffer from morning sickness. Most mothers-to-be find their symptoms ease around week 14
but for an unlucky few, the nausea and vomiting may continue throughout the pregnancy.
Not surprisingly, most women are wary of treatment for morning sickness in
case it harms their unborn child. Fortunately, there is now an easy way to combat morning
sickness without taking drugs.
Acupressure: safe and effective
The traditional ways of controlling nausea during early pregnancy can help. These include
eating a dry biscuit or toast before getting up each day or chewing ginger root. Yet
scientific studies have proved that one of the most effective drug-free treatments is
based upon the ancient Chinese principle of acupressure - effectively acupuncture without
needles! This is available as the Sea-Band
The Sea-Band applies continuous pressure on the P6
(or Nei-Kuan) point on each wrist using a plastic stud; the point is very easy to find.
That acupressure can prevent and ease morning sickness
was first scientifically proven in the UK by the late Professor John Dundee from Queen's
University, Belfast. In 1988 his report in The Journal of the Royal Society of
Medicine showed that the women in the trial who used acupressure had
suffered significantly less nausea and vomiting than those who didn't.
A more recent study in Italy found that morning sickness was reduced in 70% of women who used Sea-Bands.
What's more, one study conducted by an American midwife showed that
women wearing Sea-Bands
also reported less
anxiety, depression and hostility!
Sea-Bands can be worn
on each wrist whenever you feel nauseous. The Sea-Band
is comfortable, washable and discreet. One size fits all.
Take care ... take control
Controlling your nausea can be a big step towards feeling positive about your pregnancy.
Here are a few points to remember about taking care of yourself:
- Food: it's quality
rather than quantity that counts. Your baby depends on you for the nutrients it needs to
develop, so follow a good, balanced diet. Avoid raw or lightly cooked eggs, soft and
blue-veined cheeses, which could lead to bacterial?infections: and
pate and liver
- Beverages: drink
lots of water, milk and juice during your pregnancy, with tea and coffee in moderation.
Plenty of liquids will help you avoid constipation and piles. It's best not to drink
alcohol at all, particularly in early pregnancy.
- Hygiene: be
scrupulous about cleaning and food hygiene in the kitchen, particularly if you have cats
or other pets. Pamper yourself, too, with relaxing baths and body lotions.
swimming, yoga and walking will help you keep fit. Join a local class and meet other
- Smoking: give up
as soon as you can for your own and your baby's health.
Sea-Band for Travel Sickness
Travelling 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.
The nausea, dizziness and vomiting caused by any form of transport 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. Contrary to common belief, the resulting nausea is not "all in the mind" and is experienced by children and adults alike.
Early signs of travel sickness include quietness, headaches and lethargy, often followed by uncontrollable vomiting.
