This Will Save You From Suffering Motion Sickness Ever Again

September 21, 2017

My son is a puker. He pukes on long car rides. Flying to grandparents in Canada or NYC is hell for anyone sitting next to us. There is vomit. The whole time. When we went to Catalina – the boat getting there was a disaster. We try Dramamine, and those pressure point bands do nothing.

We all know that holiday season involves planes, trains, and automobiles even before the celebration with family and friends begins. But how can you feel festive when just the idea of traveling gives you motion sickness?

To combat the effects from motion sickness, a new technology has the answer to relieving holiday travel anxiety and let me tell you, if we travel anywhere I am glueing this to my son’s wrist.

The ReliefBand,® is a wearable, drug-free, clinically proven device to alleviate the nausea associated with motion sickness. The reusable device works within minutes helping you arrive at your destination calmly and ready to enjoy yourself.

The Reliefband® uses accurately programmed pulses with highly specific waveform, frequency, and intensity to stimulate the median nerve on the underside of the wrist, the Reliefband® taps into the body’s natural neural pathways to block the waves of nausea produced by the stomach.

This the first in a new breed of over the counter devices called a “treatable” – a wearable device to actually treat a condition rather than just monitor symptoms or activity.

This is probably the best Christmas present I could give to our family, and to all those strangers on planes sitting anywhere in our vicinity.
