Feeling Nauseous? Press Here

Here's a suggestion for stopping nausea that you may not know about.

When you get that queasy feeling from morning sickness, motion sickness, or some other stomach-upsetting sickness, you want nothing more than for it to stop. Instead of reaching for the Pepto or Dramamine, reach for your wrist.

The acupressure point two finger-widths below your wrist, on the thumb side, is the key to nausea relief. Massaging the point known as P6 or Nei Kuan with steady pressure in three to five minute intervals for as long as necessary should ease that sick-to-your-stomach feeling.

Studies have shown that this technique also has worked to cure nausea and vomiting in cases of post-op sickness and chemotherapy. A product called Sea-Band has capitalized on the simple treatment with wristbands made with a button strategically placed on the P6 pressure point. I recommend picking these up if nausea visits you often. If you are a do-it-yourself kind of person, you could make one yourself using tennis wrist sweatbands and sewn-in buttons of your own.
