HOMEOPATHY

Summer is on its way and for those of us who are traveling far or near, flying or going on a cruise, health precautions are recommended. Keep a copy of your passport and your credit cards somewhere safe and take a picture of them and keep them in your smart phone. Take along some medication for pain and trauma, infections, anxiety, a sleep aide, and your recommended medications; enough for the duration of the trip. In the week leading up to the trip drink plenty of water, eat healthy meals and plenty of vegetables. Be sure to get enough rest and exercise to help combat jet lag. Take multi-vitamins and Immune Booster supplements like vitamins B, C, and D, Black Elderberry, Beta Glucan, Shiitake and Maitake mushrooms.
