    Anti-nausea wristbands

    My radiation treatment started this week and I’ve been dealing with some minor nausea. Andrea suggested trying the anti-nausea wristbands so I jumped on Amazon to order. They arrived next morning in time for my appointment and happy to say that they work!

    The real reason for this post though, is that the wristbands are something I never would have thought of. I know there are people who have motion sickness or sea sickness. So when traveling, or out in the ocean in Aruba I would recommend giving these a try.

    Andrea, thank you. I am so grateful for the suggestion!!

    you are most welcome Pegmeister!

    I am the seasick queen.... I get sick floating on a noodle in the ocean.
    When Paul started getting the terrific cruise offers, I knew that I had to do something that would work.
    Bonine made me jittery, dramamine made me tired, scopolamine made me dizzy and tired.
    There was never a good option.
    My dr. told me that she tried the acupressure wristbands to prevent morning sickness. Worked for her.
    I have been hooked for about 2 yrs.

    There is also an oil that one can rub behind ears that prevents nausea as well.
    Lots use that too.

    Peg...moving this out of Off topic because it can be about Aruba!

    Be well Peg!

    I hope the radiation goes easier for you. Thanks for the tip. Did you buy a specific brand? I was looking for them for our cruise in October.

    I ordered Lyjee travel wristbands on Amazon. Two pairs for around $8. It was $3 more for next morning delivery which I thought was worth it. I believe the Seaband brand is probably the most popular.

    these are the ones that I have bought.
    2x in the last 2 years.
    I tend to lose them

    I just ordered another bunch.
    I brought 2 pair to Maine, wore a pair on the boat and gave my grandson the other pair.
    I lasted for 4+ hours on the 22' whaler. I even walked around.
    Not a hint of nausea or vertigo.
    They are NOT attractive AND yup I wear them even when I am dressed more formally in the dining room and restaurants on cruises.
