The idea for the NoMo Wristbands came about when the inventor and founder, Dr. Jacqueline Darna, an anesthesia provider, was giving birth to her second child.
"During my emergency cesarean section I kept vomiting in the operating room and post operative. I couldn't enjoy my beautiful baby girl because I felt so miserable from the nausea. The only thing that helped me was a pair of peppermint leaves that my anesthetist gave me to smell. I kept dropping them and making my husband pick them up. It's not easy to breastfeed and hold peppermint leaves. In practicing anesthesia, I know all the drugs that are given as anti-emetics, their terrible side effects like Zofran, and none of the traditional drugs were working for me; so I taped a small ball of gauze to each of my wrists at the P6 point and hoped for the best. I started feeling better and anytime I got the uneasy feeling I would smell the leaves. When I returned home I searched for a product like this and found that no one had ever combined these two well documented anti-nausea strategies: properly applied band that provides relief and soothing cool peppermint scent. I saw that Sea Bands existed but they were ugly, outdated, and not waterproof 1980's sweat bands that really hurt my wrist. The newer psi bands looked like a watch but it had a tightening mechanism and how was I suppose to know how much pressure was good enough for me?" I was determined to infuse natural essential oils within a properly applied wristband and I knew it had to meet certain criteria like: stylish, waterproof, easy to use, comfortable, and most importantly it had to give relief now not later with a concept of soothing cool peppermint scent. As I perfected the product design I was guided by the decades of clinical studies showing how effective these each can be on their own and knew that the combination would be a powerful solution for nausea, migraine, and sleep sufferers everywhere. Now NoMo Nausea is currently apart of 11 clinical trials and is published in 2 white papers and featured in popular magazines like Outpatient Surgery Magazine and can proudly say I can help 80% of people stop having nausea or vomiting in seconds!
