Testimonials

General Nausea: "Recently I had about of gastroenteritis (nausea, upset stomach, cramps, diarrhea).  BioBands worked so well to relieve carsickness for my twins, I thought it might help my symptoms.  It worked and was the only thing that kept me going!"  - Sharon N. Sr. Clinical Dietitian ~ Boston, MA

Why BioBands: "I first saw this type of band used on a trip to France - and I immediately ordered the two bands required.  I used them although they were too tight and uncomfortable.  I saw your ad in some catalog.  I ordered one because I thought it would be so much more convenient in every way to use one rather than two.  One always interfered with my watchband,  and when I got a BioBand and realized it was adjustable - that was great!  I find that one band is absolutely as effective as two - and therefore so much more satisfactory.  I recently lent mine to a friend who was very dubious about going on an ocean trip because he gets nauseated with motion.  When he returned - having used the BioBand, he said they hit a storm in the Caribbean with waves washing up over their windows - and he said he felt fine!  He couldn't believe it!" - Polly B. ~ Logan, KS

seasickness: "I remember vividly the moment I tried BioBands.  It was during my eighth week of pregnancy and I was visiting my doctor.  At the time, I was extremely nauseous and he gave me the BioBand to try.  Within 15 minutes I experienced relief.  Nothing had ever worked that quickly and enduringly for me until then.  BioBands worked so well for me during my pregnancy, now that I've had my baby, I put it on whenever I fell nauseous." - Susan G. ~ San Diego, CA

Motion Sickness: "Thank goodness we returned from our trip to the Orient and Indonesia - "Motion sickness" free.  During the cruise portion, we had two rough days on the cruise ship.  Half the guests were seasick and did not show up for meals.  Both my husband and I wore our BioBands and were fine.  At each we toured by bus, so again I needed my BioBand.  Manu thanks for this wonderful product.  I will always be a devoted user." - Janet S. ~ Cleveland, OH

Chemotherapy: "The BioBand has been a lifesaver.  I tried the over-the-counter oral remedies or the patch but always experienced the side effects of drowsiness and dry mouth.  With the BioBand, no side effects at all.  By the way, I donated my BioBand to a woman with breast cancer diagnosed soon after she lost her job as a pharmacist and right after her health insurance expired.  The chemotherapy was making her nauseated.  Guess what: she is now symptom free!"  - Dr. Maryann P. M.D. ~ Pittsburgh, PA

Amusement Rides: "My youngest son always got airsick when we traveled by plane.  Since we have discovered BioBands, he has not felt nauseous once.  It worked so well we tried it on a recent trip to Disney World and Epcot Center.  In the past, he always got nauseous during some attractions.  Success again!  We've also used it when we've had the flu.  It worked wonders.  Thank you for helping to solve a mother's nightmare!" - Gayle D. ~ Miami, FL

Drug/Side Effects: "For many years, I have been forced periodically to take a drug called Calcitonin, to help relieve the pain of a bone condition called Pagets.  However, I do this with great reluctance, since every time I have to take this drug, I get terribly nauseous.  I heard of your bands and tried it.  I want you to know it worked like a miracle.  Now every time I have to take the drug, I put on the BioBand and I don't get nauseous at all." - Roz L. ~ New York, NY

Ginger / Herbal:  Ginger and other Herbs are natural products that have been used throughout history to ease symptoms of seasickness.  The government does not regulate these products as they do with prescription medications.  Although the government does not regulate these products, there is no evidence that ginger causes any problems if taken during pregnancy for the moderate relief of nausea or vomiting.  As always, check with your doctor before taking any medication during your pregnancy.

Acupressure: Acupressure is applied by stimulating the P6 point on your wrist.  This stimulation blocks the nausea signal from going to the brain.  This is accomplished by wearing a bracelet with a button that stimulates the P6 point on the underside of your wrist.  This can be very effective on some women but does not work on every expectant mother.
