Most of us are only lucky to get away once a year or some of us may even travel more and in some cases for work. My husband travels often for work and doesn’t feel his best when travelling so always needs to take extra care so that he lands at his destination ready to hit the ground running and attend to his work schedule.
There are definitely a few things that you can do before you travel to prepare your body for a long journey by sea, air or road, and a change in climate, water and food.
Take some probiotics, I recommend Pro Bio Boost, 1-2 capsules taken in the morning half an hour before breakfast. The live bacteria in this blend will benefit your immune system, digestive system and skin.
Take a ginger, lemon and apple juice shot daily, this will wake you up and give your immune system and liver a lovely boost in the morning.
Try and have a freshly extracted vegetable juice daily, even if you don’t normally. You will be amazed at the difference you will feel when all that live nutrition floods your cells! You can find some lovely recipes here You can also add a teaspoon of the Organic Greens Blendto your juices or take a shot of it every day in some organic apple juice.
Take a daily dose of B complex and Vitamin C.
Please ensure you drink at least 2-3 litres of water daily. Simple but the most effective way to boost your energy and detox your system.
When You Get There
Pace yourself! I know the temptation is to plan a well structured and packed itinerary to make the most of your time away, but maybe just ease yourself in letting your body adjust the the new pace and surroundings. You are there to rest and recharge after all.
Keep taking your probiotics, the pro bio boost is ideal as it doesn’t need to be kept in the fridge.
Use a good organic suncream such as one from the Green People, avoiding dangerous nano particles and other nasties.
Take a pot of Wild Rose Beauty Balmwith you, as well as being great for cleansing and moisturising it is excellent for dealing with the dreaded sunburn and it works so quickly as I recently found out!
Homeopathic First Aid Kit; remedies for fear of flying, Aconite or Arg Nit, Travel Sickness, Cocculus or Nux Vom, food poisoning, Arsen Alb. The list can go on, bites and stings, sun burn. You can purchase these remedies from a homeopathic pharmacy or I can make individualised mixes for you. It always proves invaluable when you are struck down with something and are miles away from a pharmacy!
Neal’s Yard Remedies Organic are also selling some rather attractive looking and very useful Skincare Travel Sets at the moment. I love them all because it means I don’t have to go to the hassle of decanting all my products into small jars and they are the perfect size to carry on board too!
