Many of us enjoy an extended holiday season at this time of the year, which makes it possible to travel.
Unfortunately for some, motion sickness can dampen one’s enthusiasm.
Studies of novice civilian pilots revealed that those who ate three or less meals per day had least incidence of motion sickness.
Choose to eat a light meal three hours prior to travelling, comprising fruit and vegetables, avoiding milk products, cheese, preserved meat, corn chips, potato chips, pork, beef and eggs.
Ginger can prevent motion sickness, so also prescribed homoeopathics.
It is wise to take on a daily basis Lactobacillus Acidopholus and Bifido bacterium to encourage healthy bowel flora, plus garlic and Vitamin C, all to ward off gastro-intestinal infection.
Homoeopathics are available to effectively combat any case of diarrhoea or vomiting.
Vitamin B1 taken consistently acts as a mosquito repellant.
To seriously work on preventing any illness during your holiday, take Echinacea or Astragalus or Olive Leaf extract, these herbs cleanse and stimulate the immune system and display definite anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties.
Combining all of the above should see you enjoying a healthy, happy holiday.
