Nothing ruins good travel plans more than getting sick. Try packing some of these products to help you stay in tip-top shape while you’re away.

  • NO Jet-Lag: This remedy offers homeopathic relief from time change and travel tiredness.
  • Grapefruit Seed Extract (NutriBiotic): Great for bacterial and viral infections. Especially good for prevention of stomach unrest. We use it to clean water bottles/CamelBaks and to disinfect our toothbrushes!
  • Cold Snap and Emergen-C: These two over-the-counter medications combine to offer a well-balanced herbal and nutritional approach to the early stages of cold and flu.
  • Mint-Flavored CholorOxygen (Chlorophyll Concentrate): This is a terrific product with helps our body’s ability to absorb oxygen (in rare supply when traveling to high-altitude regions). I’ve found it ideal for Colorado, Peru and the Himalayas!
  • Ginger Wafers (Solaray): Ginger alleviates nausea and settles the stomach. These wafers are eight times more concentrated ant the crystallized form. The honey, molasses and Stevia in the wafers offset the pungent ginger taste.
  • Stomach Rescue (Peaceful Mountain): Once you’ve got it (food poisoning, upset stomach, etc.), this will stop it!
  • Sinus Rescue Spray (Peaceful Mountain): This spray is ideal for the recycled air on planes as it inhibits bacteria from breeding in your sinuses.
  • Rescue Remedy Spray (Bach): An overall great stress reliever on- the-road and at home, without sedation.
  • Lavender Essential Oils (Wendmere): This aromatherapy has calming and relaxing properties as well as the added bonus of antibacterial elements. Just put a few drops on a handkerchief or scarf and breathe.
  • Hand Sanz Antibacterial Hand Sanitizer (All Terrain): Travel-size hand sanitizer without harsh synthetic chemicals. Use it often without worry.
  • Shinglederm Rescue-Naturally soothing cream for rash relief and itchy skin.  Shingles, or Herpes Zoster virus, is often characterized by lesions of the skin. Shingles is often very painful and causes a burning and itching sensation associated with the inflammation of a shingles outbreak.

A word about natural kits: Wish Garden and Peaceful Mountain (both Boulder, Colorado-based companies) offer “travel kits” that contain their most popular health travel remedies, in travel-size containers. Many of these products are available at Whole Foods Market.
