Use Bach Flower Rescue Remedy to ease the stress of traveling. You can take Rescue Remedy by adding drops to a glass of water or juice and sip at intervals or you can take it under the tongue. It’s also available in pastilles and a spray. Find it in your favorite health food store or at www.vitacost.com.
Take homeopathic No-Jet-Lag. It helps with tension, over-exertion, nausea, anxiety and insomnia and helps you adapt to your new surroundings. You can take No-Jet-Lag with any other medication but it’s most effective when taken separately from food and drink. I used this when I went to London years ago and it really helps. Find it at www.nojetlag.com.
Try Ginseng. It’s a great adaptogen helping the body adapt or acclimate to jet lag, different environments, climate changes, altitudes, and stress. If you’re prone to motion sickness, ginger can be a big help too. Try candied ginger from the health food store.
Get some sunlight to recharge your batteries if you land during the day. This will help you adjust to the new time zone. Exposure to full spectrum light will help to help set the body’s natural melatonin production. If you need help sleeping choose a natural melatonin supplement. Take 0.03 to 3 milligrams in the evening before retiring.
Get moving. Rest when you arrive but do find ways to exercise when you are traveling, whether it is yoga in the hotel room, a brisk walk along a scenic street, or a run in a park, stay active so you feel your best.
