~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.
*Please note they are produced in a facility that also processes soya and peanuts.
~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 on your loved one. 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-Kuan) acupressure point. It is widely believed that pressure on this point relieves nausea and vomiting.
~Microwaveable Soothing Body Wrap~
These soothing body wraps can be heated in a microwave and used to help relieve some of the discomfort from aching muscles and joint pain that chemotherapy treatment can cause. They can also provide your loved one with some comforting warmth or alternatively, they can be chilled and used as a cooling compress. The cover is made from 100% pure cotton which is gentle on the skin and filled with flaxseed fragranced with lavender essential oil. Pack size w12cm x h23cm d5cm. Product size L49cm w14cm.
