How to Stay Healthy When Flying
You’re anxious, cramped, eating non-food and breathing recycled air. Here’s how to feel better when you touch down.
Follow Gwyneth Paltrow: The famous fan of alkaline living swears by colloidal silver and vitamin C to avoid bugs. Colloidal silver was widely used in hospitals to fight bacteria before the advent of antibiotics. Try this (handy 100ml) bottle of Colloidal silver spray from Higher Nature to keep hands and surfaces clean.
Eat Less: Hunger can influence our sleep-wake cycles and research suggests that you can reduce jet lag by fasting. The idea was first devised in the 1980s by biologist Charles Ehret author of the Argonne Anti–Jet-Lag diet. His research showed that intermittent fasting pre flight and nibbling during the journey – followed by a big breakfast on arrival – would anchor you in the new time zone.
While Ehret’s theory has not been scientifically validated, anecdotal evidence – and subsequent studies from Harvard – suggests he was onto something. If the idea of fasting for an entire long haul flight is out of the question (us too) try stocking up on low sugar/high fibre bars and nuts to keep hunger at bay.
Radiation Protection: When we travel we are exposed to huge amounts of cosmic radiation. Detox expert Jennifer Thompson suggests travelling with the gemstone tourmaline. Taking a green powder rich in spirulina– like the alkaline superboost – will also offset the damage from radiation
