Hospitals use acupuncture after operations

Specially trained anaesthetists have been trialling the use of Pericardium 6 to help prevent post operative nausea for a number of years. There has been so much research done on this acupuncture point, that the World Health Organisation concluded that using it was a validated procedure and effective.

The anaesthetists applied either one of the Sea Sickness bands that are commercially available or a special needle before an operation started.
Normally patients have been offered anti emetic drugs or have even had to be readmitted to hospital if they have had bad problems with nausea and vomiting after the op, but the acupuncture made this virtually unnecessary.

I don’t know about you, but I used to suffer a lot with motion sickness as a child, I am a non-smoker and I am female! Luckily I haven’t had to have an operation so far, but if I did my Sea Sickness Band would be at the ready!
