"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] inhaler 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 relief inhaler. In fact he will not let it go and holds onto all day for dear life."

The active ingredients in Nausea Relief No. 44 have been studied in clinical environments as potential treatments for multiple conditions that result in stomach upset and/or vomiting, including pregnancy, postoperative nausea and vomiting (PONV) and chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting
Ginger, in particular, is thought to work due to the effect of the organic compounds that comprise the oil -- 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.
Like all Ascents formulas, Nausea Relief No. 44 contains only 100% pure essential oils -- all tested to be non-allergic -- resulting in a balanced, effective, aromatherapeutic blend.
Ascents essential oils are undergo rigorous lab testing, and 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.

Br J Anaesth. 2000 Mar;84(3):367-71.Ernst E(1), Pittler MH.
Conclusions: Three on postoperative nausea and vomiting were identified and two of these suggested that ginger was superior to placebo and equally effective as metoclopramide. One study was found for each of the following conditions: seasickness, morning sickness and chemotherapy-induced nausea.
These studies collectively favoured ginger over placebo.
