The holiday travel season will be upon us before we know it. With many beginning to plan arrangements already, it’s important to not only consider your own health… but also the wellness (or lack thereof!) of other travelers. Take a proactive approach to health with a cold & flu protection plan!
Environmental and situational stressors experienced during travel can wreak havoc on a normally healthily functioning immune system. Often, travel away from home alters one’s daily routine from every imaginable aspect of life– including sleep, diet, stress, and exercise.
The immune system is one of the most important body systems. Without realizing it, our bodies are constantly fighting an ongoing invisible battle against daily germs and foreign microbes that we come into contact with. The body’s immune system is the first line of defense against foreign invaders: bacteria, pathogens, viruses, parasites or anything that can potentially cause disease.
In addition, increased exposure to airborne illnesses and other diseases are common with activities associated with travel, such as in airports, communal areas of public transportation, restaurants, amusement parks, etc. To maintain wellness during travel, it is important to support immunity, which greatly influences systemic health.
Boost Resistance During Cold & Flu Season
To avoid illness from interfering with your leisure travel or even business plans, help balance systemic health and promote wellness during your travels with Native Remedies. Herbal ingredients known for their immune strengthening abilities include Viscum album, Hypoxis rooperi (extract of African Potato), and Olea europea (extract of Olive leaf).
Public, shared surfaces and objects are a haven for germs. From handrails to checkout counter pens to kiosks to airplane trays, you (and your children’s) hands are exposed to countless germs which can live hours! A disturbing but true fact: The number of germs on fingertips doubles after using the toilet. Yet up to half of all men and a quarter of women fail to wash their hands after they’ve been to the toilet! So think twice about touching your face, sharing personal items, or eating after encountering any public surface… always wash your hands first!
Ban the Flu from Your Vacation
Despite your best attempts, with the prevalence of airborne illness and number of people traveling, or out and about running errands, shopping, etc., you may fall victim to a bout of cold or flu. However, natural remedies provide safe, effective solutions to bring you symptomatic relief – so you can enjoy your holiday. Have natural remedies handy and packed so if illness strikes, you’re not left out enjoying seasonal fun!
