Natural Remedies For Travel

echinacea The most common maladies that strike while traveling are among the simplest to treat – and you don’t need to spend a fortune for some over-the-counter medication in the hotel gift shop, either. Here are a few all-natural solutions for four common travel ailments:

If you’re feeling jet lagged, one answer many swear by is melatonin, a hormone that helps to regulate your internal clock. Place a one milligram tablet under your tongue at bedtime every night for the first few nights after you arrive – some experts even advise that you start en route, if you’re going to be sleeping on the plane and want to get started adjusting to your new time zone.

Ginger is a centuries-old treatment for nausea, and it works wonder on motion sickness. If you suspect that it’ll be a problem, take two 500 mg capsules before you travel, and carry candied ginger for delicious, on the spot relief when your stomach starts to flip.

Your immune system is likely to take a beating while traveling, so try taking Echinacea four times a day for the two weeks prior to your departure. And if you’re hit with diarrhea, a great natural remedy is blackberry-root bark – take 1 teaspoon of extract mixed in warm water every couple of hours until the symptoms go away.

Remember airlines don't offer even an aspirin if you get taken sick while flying and most other travel companies don't keep anything available except for first aid kits for an injury. Find the remedies for you and take them with you when you travel.
