A wristband relives migraine nausea


If you are one of the 36 million Americans suffering from migraine headaches, you have likely tried every remedy and found little relief. Migraines are one of the most debilitating illnesses and one of the leading causes of disability. Among the many symptoms which migraine sufferers endure is nausea. About 80% of people with the severe headache also have nausea. In new research, leading headache physician, Dr. Zoltan Medgyessy of the Berolina Clinic in Lohne, Germany, has demonstrated that pressure to the P6 antiemetic point on the inner wrist applied with an acupressure wristband is an effective and quick therapy for relieving this symptom.

Sea-Band acupressure wristband relieved symptoms for vast majority

The acupressure study included 41 patients who experienced an average of 33.1 migraine days during the previous three months with an average nausea intensity of 6.2 out of 10. The patients were given the Sea-Band acupressure wristbands instead of antiemetic drugs during the migraine attack. As many as 83% noticed an improvement in the nausea symptom. After receiving the therapy, patients reported nausea rated 2.9 out of 10 and relief was experienced after 28 minutes. Almos100% of the patients said they would use Sea-Band again for migraine nausea.

Drug and side effect free; fast and effective

“Acupressure wristbands are drug-free and that is an important advantage in using this therapy for migraine nausea as they have no risks for interaction with migraine drugs or the side effects commonly experienced with antiemetics, such as dizziness or tiredness,” explained Dr. Medgyessy. “There are still many unknowns about migraine, making findings such as these an important stride toward improving the quality of life for those who suffer from the condition. I’m grateful that the International headache Congress has given me a platform to share the results of my team’s study and look forward to discussing it with my colleagues.”
