Morning sickness, which can be debilitating at times, is drawing more attention and greater concern from pregnant women looking for safe and effective remedies.

New York, NY (PRWEB) — From Angelina Jolie to Jane Doe, women around the world have suffered the debilitating effects of morning sickness during pregnancy, and many women are beginning to grow increasingly more concerned about the remedies available.

“I was so sick during the first few months of my pregnancy that I couldn’t eat, couldn’t go to work. I could hardly function,” Anita Rubio, 25, Island Heights, NJ explains. “I was afraid to take any of the over-the-counter or other medicines because all you read about is how dangerous they wind up being,” she continues.

With many over-the-counter and prescription medications for pain, weight loss and other common conditions being removed from the market, pregnant women are becoming more reluctant to take any medication for morning sickness.

“I thought about taking the herbal remedies but then I read that even ginger could be bad for you and the baby,” Lisa Custodio, 33, Brooklyn, NY states. “I really just felt like I didn’t want to put anything harmful into my body while I was pregnant,” Custodio added.

Custodio, like many pregnant women around the world are discovering that acupressure technology found in BioBands alleviates nausea without the risk of harmful effects for the mother or her unborn child.

“BioBands are great, they are easy to wear, completely stopped my feeling sick and I didn’t have to worry about hurting my baby,” Custodio explains.

The acupressure technology used by BioBands disrupts the transmission of nausea signals to the brain thereby eliminating the nausea associated with morning sickness without the need to take anything orally or topically that is absorbed into the bloodstream.

Pregnant women are becoming increasingly more aware of everything they take into their body, including topical treatments absorbed through the skin. The use of BioBands wristbands for nausea is proving to be safer and more effective than many of the medications and home remedies that have turned out ineffective or potentially harmful.

  3. I asked a friend about acupressure for my morning sickness, and she told me about these bands SeaBands that use plastic studs placed on the pressure point in the wrist to relieve nausea…so i went and got my wife one…and it actually worked!! Now I do believe in the concept of acupressure for morning sickness.

  4. Dizziness in pregnancy is normal. On the other hand, when you get dizzy and lightheaded so often, you should schedule a check up with your doctor. According to experts, the dizziness happens when the cardiovascular system and nervous system are unable to adjust to the bodily changes you are going through. When the blood is not able to circulate as fast as it should to your brain, you’ll feel dizzy or feel like fainting.
