Sea Sickness Bands – Natural Sea Sickness Remedy
Have you ever been on a boat and experienced the following symptoms? If so, then you are probably one of the unfortunate many who experience seasickness.
As you may know from personal experience, seasickness is a debilitating affliction that can destroy an otherwise idyllic experience on the sea.
- Cold sweats
- Increased salivation
- Paleness of the skin
Seasickness is a form of motion sickness characterized by a feeling of nausea and in extreme cases, vertigo experienced after spending time on a watercraft. Seasickness occurs because of the rocking motion of the vessel, but people who are especially susceptible to the condition can feel seasick just by setting foot on a boat, even if the craft is in dry dock.
As humans, we instinctively try to remain upright by keeping our center of gravity over our feet. One way your body achieves this preference is by visual reference to surrounding objects, such as the horizon. You may become seasick because of the visual confusion when you're on the boat, when nearby objects move with the motion of the boat. Experiencing seasickness is common for those unaccustomed to being at sea.
Many will seek out seasickness remedies in an effort to avoid feeling any of the symptoms noted above. Unfortunately, many of the popular remedies are drug based and can have potential side effects.
A sea sickness band is a natural seasickness remedy that millions around the world swear by. Using acupressure, the wristband applies natural pressure therapy to a specific acupuncture point that controls nausea and vomiting. With the right degree of pressure, the transmission of nausea is blocked before it can be registered by the brain – thus eliminating the feelings of nausea, before they even start!
