Brain Games for Adults
Chemotherapy treatment can involve a lot of waiting around. This is why we have chosen this book as there’s plenty to keep your loved one occupied during hospital visits. It's common knowledge that a brain workout is essential for keeping your mind on top form but often the puzzles we turn to can seem like very hard work.

There’s something for everyone with a variety of difficulty levels.
Gin-Gins Chewy Ginger Candy
Ginger is an ancient herb used widely throughout history for its many natural medicinal properties. The best available evidence demonstrates that ginger is an effective treatment for nausea and vomiting which can be an unfortunate side effect of chemotherapy. These chewy ginger sweets are a popular and enjoyable alternative to anti-nausea medicine. 84g box.

Blue Stress Ball
Stress balls are great for relieving tension and pent up frustration. The act of repeatedly squeezing a stress ball can help to release tension and relieve stress. The repeated pattern of grip and release helps to alleviate tension and stress and is an activity that your loved one can do anywhere. Stress balls are great for relieving stress but did you know stress balls can also be used to:
- help improve mood
- provide a distraction from an overwhelming situation, like cancer treatment
- help your loved one to focus on the task in hand
- help to reduce pain and anxiety
- help to pump veins which is useful when having IV chemotherapy
- help to ease peripheral neuropathy.
Anti Nausea Wrist Bands
Anyone who has experienced nausea will know how draining it can be. This is why we have included these anti-nausea wristbands as a natural way to ease some of the negative effects it can have. Research has shown that patients who wore acupressure wristbands reported less chemotherapy-related nausea on the day of treatment compared with those who didn't wear them. The plastic stud attached to the inside of the wrist band exerts pressure and stimulates the P6 (or Nei-Guan) acupressure point. It is widely believed that pressure on this point relieves nausea and vomiting.
