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.
Udderly Smooth Extra Care Cream
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. Net weight 114g.
When experiencing the side effects of chemotherapy on the skin, patients should firstly contact their healthcare professional for approval of any product prior to use.
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 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-Guan) acupressure point. It is widely believed that pressure on this point relieves nausea and vomiting.
