The idea for the NoMo 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, 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: acupressure and aromatherapy." 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 and migraine sufferers everywhere.
