Nausea hint - Relief Band


Recommended Posts

Hi All -

A friend of ours who is battling breast cancer told us about this thing called the relief band for nausea. You can get it at any drug store and it has really seemed to help my Dad. You wear the band like a watch around your wrist and then you dial it up when you feel sick. The band stimulates a nerve which helps fight the nausea. My Dad is also on Kytrile and compazine, but with the relief band, when he starts to feel sick, he can turn it on and almost immediately get relief. I know that the band alone would not work, but it has definitely been a helpful tool for him. I think it mentally helps him too.

They are a bit pricey, around $80, but well worth the money in my opinion if it keeps him comfortable. On the packaging it says the band is for motion sickness, but it works great for chemo patients as well.

Hope this helps someone,
