Malaria spreads: Mosquitos carrying Malaria

Malaria, silent killer of the swamp!

Malaria is a serious disease that can occur if you are bit by a mosquito that has been infected with parasites. It causes you to have high fevers and chills, and its common symptoms include nausea, vomiting, and headaches.

Preventative measures are the best way to ward off Malaria. Bug spray, citronella, high frequency noise devices that mosquitos stay away from, & nets over the bed during sleep. If you are traveling to a foreign country like Africa, it is important to keep a No Mo Nausea Band in your bag.  The No Mo Nausea Band can help instantly relieve all those symptoms through its combination of acupressure and peppermint aromatherapy. In any case though, make sure to seek medical treatment immediately if you feel you might have it because it can lead to worse complications.

Can Ibuprofen or Advil cause my stomach to hurt? Upset stomach mystery answered here.

NSAIDS a Gastroenterologists worst nightmare

Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications (NSAIDs) are medications such as Ibuprofen and Advil that effectively reduce inflammation and relieve pain. NSAIDs work by blocking the production of certain body chemicals that cause inflammation, and work kind of like steroids, just without the side effects associated with steroids.

Unfortunately, NSAIDs can have their own side effects if they are taken for long periods of time or in large doses. The most common include nausea, vomiting, stomach pain, and mild headaches. Bleeding ulcers will get worst because NSAIDs reversibly bind to platelets, how the body clots off blood, causing ulcers to keep bleeding.

Thankfully, the NoMoNauseaBand is a great, natural, and economical way of relieving those side effects & reduces the need for alternative headache medicine. The No Mo Nausea Band uses both acupressure to target the 4 receptors in the brain to stop nausea before it even starts, and peppermint aromatherapy to open vessels in the brain to relieve headaches and helps reduce stomach pains, as well as vomiting. The No Mo Nausea Band is one of the easiest and very effective ways in treating those annoying side effects, so make sure to have yours ready when one or more might strike.

Adrenaline Rush causing nausea. Must read for rollercoaster & skydiver

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. 

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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. 
  4. 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..

  1. 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!
  2. 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.
