Top Ten Travel Tips!

Travel Tips – Top 10!

Traveling used to be this fun adventure.  It still can be, if you are going somewhere fun.

But there are some down sides too.

Airport (radiation) scanners
Radiation exposure while in flight
Exposure to every cold and flu currently going around
Disruptions in sleep, food, and hydration

But I’m here with HOPE and TIPS for you.

There are several things you can do in route to make it a less toxic experience.

#1 – Opt out of the full body scan and ask for a manual pat down.  Plan on an extra 10 minutes to the process of getting through security.

#2 – Travel with anti-radiation tea like this one from Reclaim Teas.

#3 – Bring along some nascent iodine which protects the thyroid gland, especially from radiation exposure.  I buy mine from Global Healing Center.

#4 – Use some form of sanitary wipes once you board, and wipe down your arm rests, seat belt, the tray table, etc

#5 – Be sure you’ve been supporting your immune system before you go.  Personally, I try to be conscious of increasing my zinc and anti-pathogen herbs (oregano, cats claw…).

#6 – Carry a refillable container.  Add a squeeze of lemon before you go through security (its not enough liquid to trigger their system).  Once through security, fill it up with water.  If you can buy some spring water, do it!

#7 – Stay hydrated.  When you run out of your lemon water, purchase more water and keep hydrating!  Aim for urinating once per hour.

# 8 –  Travel with some snacks or meals.  This keeps me out of expensive and usually unhealthy airport food.  Depending on the length of your trip and layovers, and space in your bags, consider apple slices, celery sticks, and dates or figs.   Banana’s get squished so I don’t recommend those.  If you have a longer trip, consider steaming some potatoes and add celery, radish slices, greens, and perhaps a dressing.

#9 – Load some relaxing music on your phone for the trip.  Do some deep breathing once you are safely in flight.  Inhale over 5 seconds.  Exhale over 7 seconds.  The longer exhale puts you in parasympathetic mode.

#10 – Consider a Salt Inhaler.  It’s a small handheld ceramic gizmo.  It has pink rock salt in it and you add the essential oil of your choice.  You literally breath in through it, and then exhale through your nostrils.  Airplanes are flying petri dishes and you are breathing recycled air.  The salt inhaler is like a nebulizer without electricity, and protects you from  any bacteria and virus’s that are airborne.   Even if you don’t usually have respiratory issues, it’s wise to do.  They are small, easily fit in your purse, and prevent any pathogens from getting the best of you on your vacation!  Here’s a link to the site I bought mine at.
