Microwaveable 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 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.
Hydration Drinks Bottle
It's so important that your loved one stays hydrated during chemo and a great way to prompt them is to give them their own Chemotherapy water bottle. These fruit diffuser bottles have a section in which you can place fresh fruit to give the water a gentle fruity taste which can help if your loved one is experiencing 'chemo mouth' - that nasty metallic taste. The diffuser is removable to make cleaning super easy and means the bottle can also be used without the fruit attachment. Bottles are BPA free, measure approximately 30cm tall and have a lift up handle for carrying. 750ml bottle.
Made for Life Soothing Muscle Balm
One of the side effects of cancer treatments can be muscle and joint pain. This warming balm will soothe aching muscles and joints- naturally. Rosemary stimulates blood circulation and reduces swelling whilst German Chamomile, Calendula and Lavender calm and soothe.
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 you 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. With Brain Games for Adults, internationally renowned puzzle expert Dr Gareth Moore presents a huge variety of puzzles - from cryptic codes to logic puzzles, number puzzles to feats of memory - that will challenge you and help boost your IQ. There’s something for everyone with a variety of difficulty levels.
Udderly Smooth Extra Care Cream with 10% Urea
Udderly Smooth Extra Care Cream is often recommended by healthcare professionals for oncology skin care. It's a non-greasy, deeply moisturising cream which helps to prevent peeling and cracking of the skin, particularly during chemotherapy treatment. Udderly Smooth Extra Care Cream contains 10% urea which is well-known for its hydrating, exfoliating and protecting properties. Fragrance free.
Queasy Drops have been developed by healthcare professionals. They contain powerful essential oils proven to relieve nausea which can be an unfortunate side effect of chemotherapy. They are completely natural, drug free and 100% safe. Queasy Drops are also a natural way to alleviate a dry mouth and strange tastes in the mouth. They can be a great way to manage nausea and queasiness during chemotherapy treatment.
Vermints - Peppermint
Patients may feel nauseous during chemotherapy treatment. Mint is well known for easing nausea and we’ve specifically chosen Vermints because they have ditched all the unpleasant, health-harming, chemically-modified stuff that you usually find in mints and made super tasty mints from nature and nature only. VerMints are USDA Organic, Gluten-Free, non-GMO, Nut-Free and Kosher. 40g tin.
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.
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 you can do anywhere. Stress balls are great for relieving stress but did you know stress balls can also be used to:
- help improve your mood
- provide a distraction from an overwhelming situation, like cancer treatment
- help you to focus on the task in hand
- help to reduce pain and anxiety
- help to pump your veins which is useful if you're 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.
The bristles used on these bamboo toothbrushes are made from BPA free nylon. During chemotherapy patients may suffer from nausea and mouth ulcers and bamboo toothbrushes can be gentler on the mouth and gums than plastic. Bamboo is one of the fastest growing plants on earth, meaning there is a sustainable supply of bamboo - and it’s also completely biodegradable, meaning that it can be composted or recycled at the end of its life.
