Ready for take off?
You've got your tickets, you double checked you have your passport, you packed a toothbrush, and snacks for the plane. Did you pack your herbal first aid kit? Do you know how to not only prevent getting sick, but what to do if you do?
Let me help.
There are 3 major things that you can do, without any additional stuff to keep your immunity up while traveling.
- Drink Water - drink a minimum of half your body weight in ounces, for example a 140 pound person would drink 70 ounces of water daily.
- Avoid Sugar - Like the plague. Nothing will dip your immunity like that cookie.
- Get Ample Sleep - This is not an "I'll sleep when I get on the plane" moment. But plan accordingly so you can sleep well a couple nights before travel. This may take a bit or organization, but it is possible! Don't wait to pack the night before is a biggy!
What do you do if you already feel that little bug coming on and your have already hit the road?
Here is where I can really help and a little preparation can go a long way. Most of us know what we are prone to while traveling - constipation, indigestion, insomnia, a cold, stomach flu, injury, etc. Traveling with one or two herb formulas can not only help prevent such un-pleasantries, but treat them if they manifest. Please use me as a resource. I want to make sure your vacations are all you want them to be by helping you stay healthy!
Ok, so now you've come back. What do you do about the jet lag?
Acupuncture, acupuncture, acupuncture. Did you know acupuncture can really help with jet lag? It can!
I have recently heard a simple circadian reset button is to fast on the day of travel and to eat breakfast at the new destination.
