Chemotherapy drugs have played a major role in the treatment of many forms of cancer for years. Unfortunately, since the treatment destroys cancer cells by stopping them from growing and multiplying, it also destroys other normal, healthy cells as well. This means that many patients experience side effects from chemotherapy, such as hair loss, dry mouth, difficulty swallowing, and nausea and vomiting.
When the treatment is ongoing, chemotherapy patients look for any kind of relief from the nausea and many turn to motion sickness prevention methods in the form of drugs, patches and more.
Regrettably, many of these motion sickness prevention methods come with serious side effects themselves. That’s why the introduction of BioBands patented wristbands was heralded because they relieve the chemotherapy nausea without side effects.
“The BioBand has been a lifesaver. I tried over the counter medicines and motion sickness prevention methods, but I always had side effects – drowsiness and dry mouth. With the BioBand, no side effects at all,” exclaims Maryann Palumbo, from Pittsburgh, PA.
Dr. Mark Shulman, Program Director and Clinical Professor of Anesthesiology, recently began using the acupressure bands at St. Elizabeth’s Medical Center in Boston, Ma. “Nausea and vomiting is one of the more frequent problems we have and there is no perfect treatment,” Shulman said. “The acupressure wristbands are inexpensive, non-invasive, and studies show that they do have an effect.”
Unlike most motion sickness prevention methods, the BioBands wristband is a safe, simple, effective and inexpensive way of relieving nausea from chemotherapy treatments.
“Doctors and nurses are starting to spread the word about BioBands as a safe, effective and inexpensive way to prevent chemotherapy related nausea and post-surgery nausea. In the last four months alone, we’ve seen a growing number of hospitals ordering BioBands for their patients,” states Carl Nicholson, Marketing Director for BioBands.
“The hospitals are recognizing that BioBands offer a superior alternative to other nausea prevention methods that end up causing more side effects for their patients,” he concludes.
The research behind the BioBands is another reason they are sought after as chemotherapy nausea prevention. Research studies completed on thousands of patients in hospitals and clinics have repeatedly demonstrated the effectiveness of products like BioBands for relieving nausea.
Designed and patented by an American Board Certified obstetrician and gynecologist, a BioBands wristband is a safe, simple, effective and inexpensive way of relieving nausea utilizing acupressure – a natural pressure therapy applied to a specific acupuncture point that controls nausea and vomiting.
Drug-free BioBands are easy to use and have no side-effects. Simply place the adjustable band correctly on either wrist. A built in bead provides customized pressure at the P6 acupressure point on the underside of the wrist. This gentle pressure interrupts the signals that trigger nausea.
