JAMA endorses acupressure wrist bands for morning sickness


LEICESTERSHIRE, England - The Journal of the American Medical Association recently endorsed acupressure wrist bands as useful, safe treatments for morning sickness, Sea-Band announced Thursday. Sea-Band, which has been a respected U.K.-based maker of its bands for more than 30 years, is now expanding its product lineup to include ginger gum and lozenges.  

According to JAMA, at least 85% of women experience some degree of morning sickness. Sea-Band conducted its own survey to provide additional insights. Among the findings: one in four women deal with morning sickness for longer than 10 weeks; half of all pregnant women must restrict their diets to combat morning sickness; and one in three report being late or missing work entirely because of the severity of their symptoms.

The JAMA article on morning sickness remedies also highlighted the power of ginger to control symptoms. Sea-Band has recently launched two new products – ginger gum and ginger lozenges – incorporating this traditional herbal medicine.

Both ginger products are available at CVS and Walgreens pharmacies in the U.S., and Sea-Band acupressure bands are sold in major pharmacies throughout North America and in more than 60 countries.
