Giveaway! Sea-Band

Winner:  Congratulations to our winner: Amy!


Update:  Thank you everyone for your great comments.  Sending a note to the winner now!

Did you know Canada.. I had mentioned on Twitter we went to African Lion Safari a couple weeks ago. Well this is about a 2 hour drive for us. I'll tell you a little secret about me - EVERYTHING makes me nauseous..haha.. well, just about anyways. I get car sick, air sickness, sea sickness, sick from first person video games, sick from wearing dark sunglasses, sick from roller coasters and more.

I know I'm not the only one out there, in fact (in the US) 53 million people suffer from motion sickness. Children from 5 to 12 years old, women, and the elderly seem to be most susceptible to motion sickness - well I have found the BEST solution Canada - Sea-Bands!!!


I promise I would not tell you this if it wasn't true - they worked on our recent road trip, I could NOT believe it!! No familiar nausea building, no woozy headache - nothing - it was AMAZING. If you've never suffered from motion sickness that you just can't understand how heavenly this is - but if you have then I'm sure you are ready to jump out the door to find this product!

Approved by the FDA, Sea-Band works by exerting constant, gentle pressure on a point on the inner wrist known as the Pericardium 6 (P6) acupressure point. It brings effective relief within five minutes of being applied and can be used before or after the onset of nausea. The all-natural, drug-free, latex-free Sea-Band does not cause the side-effects often associated with anti-nausea medication such as drowsiness, disorientation, dry mouth or possible interactions with other drugs. It’s safe for children, pregnant women and patients taking prescription medications. Packaged in a convenient carry-case, they are washable and reusable, and available a variety of colors in sizes for adults and children.

Sea-Band is a leading drug-free remedy for motion sickness, morning sickness, chemotherapy nausea and post-operative nausea. Most recently, a 2010 study, carried out at a German clinic specializing in migraine and headache therapy, showed that Sea-Band wristbands significantly reduced nausea and vomiting: 83% noticed perceptible reduction and 44% found their symptoms markedly reduced.

If you suffer from motion sickness like me - then trust me, you need these Canada!!!!

  57. Although I don't often suffer from motion sickness myself, my younger sister seems to always be suffering from motion sickness on any of our trips. We usually have gravel on hand and try and get as much fresh air as possible. Would love to win this for her :)

  69. Usually I will take a ginger pill or something, but it never works. I've heard these bands are pretty sick (pun intended)
