B>Motion Sickness and the ReliefBand®:
- What is Motion Sickness?
Motion sickness is a progressive condition that begins with mild nausea, escalates
to sweating and discomfort, and ultimately results in severe and continued vomiting.
- Why Does Motion Sickness Occur?
The brain is sent conflicting messages by unusual patterns of motion such as caused
by the pitching and rolling of a boat at sea. The brain becomes "confused" as to
where the body is "in space." Nausea, dizziness, and vertigo often result. For example,
when reading a book in a moving car, your eyes see the pages while your inner ear
and skin receptors detect the motion of the car.
- What Does the ReliefBand® Do?
An activated watch-sized Relief Band device worn on the inside of the wrist electrically
stimulates the median nerve. This acupuncture point is referred to as Pericardium
6 or the Neiguan point. The Relief Band's stimulation signals the brain to
have the stomach resume normal rhythms.
- How Effective is The ReliefBand®?
Studies show the Relief Band is as effective as the best medication in preventing
or controlling motion sickenss. For best results, apply thin layer of Reliefband
conductivity gel, activate the ReliefBand® 10 minutes or more before starting
activity. Usually relief takes 15 to 30 minutes if symptoms have begun.
- You feel the ReliefBand® working.
Use as needed at one of five stimulation levels..

E-mail from a ReliefBand user about his fun at Adventureland, a Des Moines Amusement
Date: September 2, 2000
[Dear Safe Home Products:]
I just got the chance to use [my ReliefBand] today. It was nothing short of
miraculous! I took my son and daughter to Adventureland today. You know those rides
that go around and around in little circles that the kids love, but the parents
puke at the thought of? Well, I rode with my kids with NO ill effects whatsoever!
The first time I used it was on the balloon ride. If you've never been there, it's
a harmless looking ride that takes you up and around in circles. (Kind of like the
"swing" carnival type ride). Well, last year I tried that ride, and got very dizzy
about 10 seconds into the ride. I remember trying to not move my head, and focusing
on a single point in the car, because if I hadn't I would've lost it! After
the ride, my nausea lasted for more than an hour. THIS year, I had the ReliefBand
on (set at 1 1/2) and had NO problem at ALL! While we were spinning
around in circles in the air, I was waving to my wife on the ground, shaking my
head, looking up and down, lowering my head to talk to my daughter...in short TRYING
to make myself sick, and it didn't happen.
I had so much fun today re-acquainting myself with all the rides I used to love
when I was a kid but didn't ride anymore because of dizziness: the Himalaya, Scrambler,
etc. Guess what? They ARE fun when you don't get sick!!

November 2001: Email to Safe Home Products from a Happy "Cruiser"
I just returned from a five day cruise (my first) out of Tampa into the Western
Caribbean and wanted to tell you about the experience I had with the relief band.
A little history first. I have always been the type of person who got car sick as
a child, could never read in a car as an adult, and I still have a hard time sitting
in the back seat of a moving car without feeling a little nauseous. As for rides
at theme parks--forget about it!
So it was with a little trepidation that I agreed to go on a cruise with our church
group. I figured I would be wearing a patch or taking Dramamine or eating candied
ginger, or SOMETHING, but I also thought there would be times I did not feel good.
Not long ago, I was reading an article about a device that gave cancer patients
undergoing chemotherapy and radiation treatments relief from nausea. And the article
said that such a device was available for other forms of nausea, without a prescription.
I did a search online with Google.com, and found your site selling relief bands.
I decided to buy the adventurer style, as I wanted something that I could use as
long as I wanted, without worrying about running out of time. The reusable feature
I told lots of people about my attempt to avoid motion sickness and many listeners
expressing skepticism. Boy were they wrong. I bet I have told and shown at least
100 people about this wonderful item while on the cruise and since returning home.
I wore it all the time on my wrist, but only turned it on when I felt it was needed,
and never had it on more than level 3. I enjoyed my trip thoroughly.
At one point, when we were returning from a shore excursion on a small boat, we
were experiencing rough water. Several people jumped up and ran outside about 15
minutes into the trip, and then the crew started passing around the "barf" bags.
My partner and I were just fine with our relief bands on! We just smiled and pointed
to our wrists. We had lots of inquiries after that ride!
So I hope you sell 100s more, I'm a big fan and have given your web site address
to MANY people. Thank you for providing the product!
Sincerely, C. L. F.
