Tips for a Healthy Vacation

How many of us have spent months planning a vacation only to have it ruined by some unforeseen circumstance? Aside from the obvious effects of jet lag, insect bites, sunburn, and changes in drinking and eating habits, there’s also the risk of food poisoning or the flu. All those foreign viruses and bacteria waiting to derail your vacation! Here are some simple suggestions to help you have a healthier and more enjoyable vacation.By clicking here we Get More Information.

Consider flying. I became an expert in the art of flying after enduring 22 return trips from London in 24 months when I moved here from the United Kingdom. Consider adjusting your travel time to your destination’s time zone if you’re travelling long distances. Beginning two weeks before a London flight, I always try to get up half an hour earlier each morning. It’s a little anti-social, especially when you’re in bed at 8:30 p.m. and someone calls, but it works. Before I even leave, I’ll be able to adjust to at least 3 hours of the 5-hour time difference on the East Coast! Then, to ensure sleep on the plane, use small foam earplugs (available at pharmacies, hardware stores, and gun stores) and an eye mask nothing bothers me! I’m out after a couple of Calms Forte or Valerian herbals. To get a good night’s sleep, take a Dramamine tablet.
A foam neck brace purchased from a surgical supply is also a great travel option. It prevents you from drooling. Invest in a large size to ensure that your head is fully supported. They’re far superior to those clumsy little neck pillows, in my opinion. And the other passengers and crew members are especially friendly!
On the plane, drink plenty of water and avoid alcohol or coffee, which dehydrate you. You don’t want to waste your body’s energy digesting a full stomach of food, so eat lightly. In addition, cabin air is extremely dry, which can wreak havoc on your sinuses’ mucus membranes, leaving them vulnerable to circulating viruses from other passengers. Use a saline nasal spray (available at any pharmacy) as needed, and chew on chewable Ester C throughout the flight to protect yourself.
While travelling, avoid touching your face, particularly your eyes. This is a particularly important tip because everything you touch has recently been touched by other hands, and cold and flu germs are highly contagious. Take a small package of wipes with you so you can clean your hands as often as possible.
If possible, avoid sleeping until the evening at your destination. Take 2 mg of melatonin, which can be found in health food stores, before going to bed. When it’s time to sleep, your pineal gland produces melatonin. In a nutshell, it can reset your clock; I find this incredible. I haven’t experienced any jet lag since I started using it.
Travelers frequently experience digestive disturbances. Some people become constipated as soon as they leave their house. Take magnesium capsules with you on your trip and take 500 mg every day for the first few days. There are also herbs like Cascara Sagrada or Senna that can be used to make a gentle laxative, as well as water.
