Stop Puking After Surgery with this Anti-Nausea Product
Post-operative nausea & vomiting (PONV) is the reason I invented the NoMo Nausea Band. Purchase one before surgery! The NoMo Nausea Band is being sold at many ambulatory surgery centers across the country from plastic surgery centers to endoscopy centers in order to decrease nausea & vomiting. PONV causes a negative feeling for anesthesia care providers like myself, increases the chance of rupturing suture lines due to the strain of emesis, increases the risk of getting food in your lungs (pulmonary aspiration), increases the time you spend in recovery, & increases the price you pay for expensive rescue IV anti-nausea drugs. Why do all that harm, when $11.99 can decrease the risk of nausea & vomiting naturally by more than 60%? It’s the same amount you would pay for 2 trips to Starbucks. How does it work? Two mechanisms of action…
- 1. Acupressure on P6 helps to stop nausea before it starts. With continuous pressure on the wrist ONLY at P6 your body creates endorphins, hormones that make you feel good and tell your brain “DO NOT PUKE.”
- Aromatherapy of natural peppermint oil makes us different than all the other acupressure bands out there. Inhalation of the menthol within the peppermint oil helps to ease your upset stomach because it is a smooth muscle relaxer. It also helps to push food down so you have less of a chance of it coming back up. Most importantly peppermint aromatherapy helps to stop active nausea & vomiting within less than 30 seconds!
