The active ingredients in Nausea Relief No. 44 have been studied in clinical environments as potential treatments for PONV (postoperative nausea and vomiting), as well as other similar medical conditions. Ginger in particular is thought to work due to the effect of the organic compounds that comprise the oil -- such as gingerols -- on human physiology.
It is believed that, when inhaled, these compounds may inhibit serotonin receptors, thereby exerting antiemetic effects on the gastrointestinal and central nervous systems. This makes Nausea Relief No. 44 an ideal choice for those who wish to mitigate stomach upset or queasiness.
Ascents™ essential oils are naturally extracted from plants’ stems, leaves and flowers via gentle steam distillation*, leaving the delicate, active compounds found in all essential oils intact and able to consistently produce the desired therapeutic outcomes.
One of the children here had a major surgery. She had an undiagnosed syndrome and the doctors were afraid to use most types of medicine with her. Her biggest problem post–op was nausea, so I was allowed to use the [ascents™ Nausea Relief No. 44] oil packet with her. She said it was the only thing that worked. Hurray!
I am also working with a young boy who is getting a bone marrow transplant for his cancer treatment. He LOVES LOVES the nausea packet. In fact he will not let it go and holds onto all day for dear life.
