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!!!!
One lucky reader will have a chance to try Sea-Band for themselves with a pair of Sea-Band wristbands and a pack of the Sea-Band Anti-Nausea Ginger Gum!!
