Adrenaline Rush holding you back? Don't let it.
Heart is beating loudly, it feels like it is in your stomach, palms are sweaty, it's difficult to take a large breath, the sounds outside are almost clear because your so focused. You look down & go for it! An adrenaline rush is the outcome from the body producing an excessive amount of hormones. These hormones are called endorphins, and can be translated in the body as happy hormones.
Adrenaline & noradrenaline, released by the adrenal glands, are a result of the bodies fight or flight sensation. You know this feeling when you hear the tik, tik, tik of the coaster or look out before sky diving & feel it in the pit of your stomach!
What the F? By the F's I mean...fear, fighting, or flying. There are a lot more but these are the primary ones. These surge of endorphins cause a rush of excitement, the inability to feel pain when punched, or the feeling that everything is being played in slow motion. Your brain is on overdrive, and vomiting is the bodies inability to control such a surge. This is why both newbies & experienced adrenaline junkies all get the upset stomach but the feeling of euphoria usually follows. I personally know lots of base jumpers and they all say at least one person pukes on the plane before jumping, and then like dominos they all get sick. Why suffer? Acupressure at the P6 point on the wrist before getting on the ride, or boarding the plane, or before the fight can actually stop your body from getting sick because it surrounds your brain with anti-nausea hormones. If during the adventure you feel sick just lift the No Mo Nausea Band to your nose & the peppermint aromatherapy can actually stop you from giving up your lunch. Buy one today and experience life without limits.
Love the thrill of rollercoaster rides, but haven't been on them in a while? If you're over 30 and haven't been to an amusement park in years, your chances of getting motion sickness are increasingly high. Your inner ear changes as you get older, ever heard of vertigo? If your at a theme park and forgot to buy your NoMo Nausea Band, here's 6 ways to help stop the queasy feeling fast and natural.
- Apples- Because apples are so high in fiber, they can help your upset stomach. The skin contains pectin which has been linked to helping stop motion sickness. Fiber helps rid the body of chemicals that may be causing your nausea. Apple juice can help nausea as well.
- Lemon- Lemons are also great for stopping ride induced nausea. Citrus fruits are known to help calm and cool your stomach. Sucking on a lemon, or drinking lemon juice mixed with water should stop your nausea. Additionally, lemons/lemon juice contain an array of vitamins which is beneficial to your health.
- Ginger- People have used ginger for helping the sick for over 2000 years. Many studies have shown that ginger helps to relieve nausea and vomiting. Ginger can be taken in a variety of ways- from making tea to swallowing a capsule. But if your at Disney or Universal Studios you may just want to ask for Ginger Ale, it has ginger (at a low concentration) and the bubbles may help ease your bubbly stomach. Warning if you have acid reflux carbonated beverages are not your friend, try NoMo Nausea Band instead.
- Crackers- Eating saltine crackers is another common way to help your upset stomach. The fiber in these starches work to absorb the gastric acid, stoping your nausea.
These are all great remedies for curing nausea. But sometimes when you're too sick you don't feel like ingesting anything, and it can actually make you feel worse because putting anything down in your mouth increases stomach acids. Women during pregnancy have an increase in acid reflux, hence the tums next to the night stand. Try out a few non-edible solutions like..
- Peppermint Oil- Peppermint oil is one of the most common cures for nausea and vomiting. Breathing it in will create a cooling sensation and works to stop nausea instantly. Even chewing mint gum or drinking mint tea will help!
- Acupressure- Acupressure functions by applying constant pressure to the P6 points on the human wrist. The median nerve that lies underneath that point on the wrist increases the amount of anti-nausea hormones that your body naturally produces and helps to keep it circulating for 12 to 24 hours even after the pressure has been removed.
