Promising review: "I am in chemo and this band IS THE TOTAL BOMB! I wear it all the time, when I sleep, no problems whatsoever. I was able to get off my harsh chemo nausea meds at home the day after chemo and just use this band. I see a top oncologist in Atlanta and she approved me using this thing so people, get 2 of these and some extra batteries. Yes, the little buzzes can get irritating after a while, but I love that you can control the strength level to whatever you need. And I love that you can turn it totally off, still wear it, just in case you want to turn it back on. It's like a security blanket and it works quickly if nausea tries to creep up on you. Just make sure you feel it in your middle fingers like the instructions state. LOVE LOVE LOVE this! Chemo is no joke. This band has improved the quality of my life." - G.E. Martin
Promising review: "These really helped ease some of the nausea waves while going through chemo. They are much more palate pleasing than some of the ginger alternatives. If you or a loved one is going through chemo it's worth a try. They really helped me but I had a friend that didn't find relief. Just be aware of different strokes for different folks." - Amazon Customer
Promising review: "My mother is undergoing chemo for lymphoma and has been battling severe nausea which she expected. She is 81 and has not been able to keep anything down in days...not her pills or even her nausea medication. She is supposed to stay hydrated and take in at least 2000 calories per day. I take care of her during her down weeks. I was at my wits end and The nausea meds (Zofran) were causing immense constipation. Poor mom! Poor me.. Then it came to me in a flash of light ....Sea Bands!!!! Two of my coworkers used them... One for extreme morning sickness(hyperemesis) and the other for severe motion sickness....both with positive results.
So I got a pair of Seabands to try hem. Didn't tell mom what they were for. Just put them on and let her finish her nap. When mom woke up.... No nausea no vomiting and even the pills stayed down. Three days now and not a SHRED of nausea! She is eating and drinking and her strength and spirits are soaring.
I finally told Mom what the Sea Bands were for. She looked at me and said,"I'm never EVER taking them off!"
I did research later and found two scholarly articles published in two important nursing journals where breast cancer patients reported a much lower frequency of nausea with the Sea Bands than without. I know many docs still pooh pooh alternative medicines but please!!!! This simple cost-effective Method which has ZERO side effects compared to antinausea meds could make a HUGE difference to those on chemo who are afraid of or who are experiencing nausea! What a simple solution......
Give them a try......if they worked for Mom they may work for YOU! Thanks for letting me post!
Update in December 2015 - mom's chemo treatments finished in November 2014 - SeaBands continued to work for her throughout all six of her chemo treatments. She had VERY few episodes of nausea (she remembered to put her SeaBands back on after a shower) - these were a Godsend - PLEASE tell everybody you know who is taking chemo - they cost just $7 - don't stop taking the the nausea meds, but add SeaBands! She is now cancer-free and has been in remission for 12 months - thanks again, SeaBands!" - Setter-Lover
Promising review: "I am a cancer support group leader. One of our members, who is my dear friend, has terminal cancer. She is nauseous from all of her medications and within seconds of going for a car ride, she would become nauseous and vomit. I researched the Internet for something other than medication, and found Motion Cure by Sidis Labs. I emailed the company and found them to be unusually helpful.
The first car ride she took while wearing Motion Cure she was not nauseous which certainly brightened her mood. It also seemed to help when she was walking around her room. Unfortunately she is now in hospice, but I have great hope that Motion Cure will help other patients who have this problem, especially those receiving chemotherapy or any other nausea-provoking drug cocktail. I know she loved the softness of the fabric cover. [...]" - Suzi G
Promising review: "I bought this wristband to help me with my chemotherapy induced nausea, which was horrible after the first round. This wristband definitely helps. I use it with other alternative medicine options, like essential oils. Be sure to use alcohol to clean the contact points on the wristband AND your wrist. Otherwise, you might not get the signal to work. I thought mine was broken for this reason. Turns out, I just needed to clean the contact points better. The seller was very attentive when I sent a question about this issue. My only complaint is the band part. People have complained that it's difficult to fasten. I've actually gotten the hang of it after a few tries. My only complaint is that the band appears to stretch a little with wear. I'm concerned that, over time, it will need replacing if it stretches and moves farther down the wrist. Still, I'm quite pleased with this purchase and would recommend to others!" - JR112
Promising review: "I was finally, after 2 years of agony, diagnosed with bile reflux disease which includes symptoms of nausea, cramping, spasms, quite like acid reflux but more intense. At the same time, I underwent chemo treatments for breast cancer. My stomach, to say the least, was a mess. I lost 15 pounds from the first treatment to the second one, two weeks later. My oncologist and GI specialist tried several different and combinations of medicine to reduce the nausea and pain, however nothing really worked. My GI specialist had suggested the peppermint tummy drops, which did help the symptoms of the bile reflux, but once I started chemo, they didn't have the same effect. I had purchased a ginger tummy drop at the same time as the initial purchase of the peppermint and thought, why not try it. I read ginger could help with chemo related nausea. I cannot fully explain what a difference in my life these little drops have made. It is amazing, it totally knocks my nausea out. I just purchased six more bags. I do not submit reviews, this is a first for me, that's how much these have helped. I cannot say these will work for everyone (and depending on circumstances, may want to discuss with your doctor), but I can say that after two years of frequent nausea and 4 weeks of intense, painful nausea, this little drop helps more than the hundreds of dollars I have spent on perscription drugs." - Amazon Customer

Promising review: "As a child, my mother always kept a bottle ok cola syrup in the refrigerator. It worked wonders then and it still does. This is one of the best remedies I have found for treating nausea and upset stomach. Pour it over ice and sip slowly and you will notice a difference almost immediately.
I have been buying this in large quantities for my mother who uses it to treat her nausea from chemo. Not a miracle cure, but it is certainly worth a try if you are looking for a natural remedy." - Amazon Customer
