High Days and Holidays
It's never too early for holiday planning. Not just getting the tickets and the itinerary, but ensuring that you stay healthy and happy through every minute of it.
If panic at the mere thought of entering a plane or setting foot on a boat precludes all likelihood of you ever suffering from travel sickness, provide yourself with a bottle of Emergency Essence and take five drops every couple of hours. This works remarkably well as keeping your terrors at bay.
If you feel that your veins might not bear the strain, and want to avoid shuffling off your flight in bed socks and slippers, with feet like giant muffins, apply Horse Chestnut gel (Aesculus) to your legs before flying and again during the flight. This will help to keep things in their normal proportions. Don't forget to drink lots of water too.
Once at your destination, it may well be that you are bidden to caper and be merry, though you wish for nothing more than your bed. Vitality Essence will keep you awake and interested until an appropriate hour. If, on the other hand, you are unable to sleep, Valerian can calm both your central nervous system and relax your muscles, allowing you the desired oblivion without a groggy head in the morning.
Encountering local food can be a mind-broadening experience, but you don't want it to deteriorate into an adventure for your bowels. Take food supplement Molkosan Vitality with you and keep your guts sweet with a daily dose. Whilst working your way through the local wine list, take Milk Thistle twice a day to keep your liver in order and reduce hangover horror.
Don't let the sun do more than lightly kiss your skin. Avoid serial sunburn by applying a high factor sun cream regularly when out of the shade.
Always on hand to protect you from everything flung at your immune system, from airplane bugs to swimming pool beasties, have Echinacea to hand. Easy to carry and simple to use, two tablets once or twice a day could save you from wasting precious holiday days in your bed, or coming home with a virus that undoes the good of your time off.
And talking of beasties, how irritating is it that such very small creatures as mozzies and midges can cause us such misery. One Scottish midge is capable of ruining a whole holiday, I can assure you... Fortunately Nature balances the production of such joy-quenchers with repellents that allow us to combat them. Neem Herbal Insect Repellent is made from essential oils and an extract of Neem oil. The repellent, which comes in an environmentally friendly pump spray, should be applied to exposed skin every three hours or as required..
