Everything you Need to Know to Stay Healthy on a Plane

Stay Healthy on a Plane

Radiation:

Don’ts:

- Metal Detectors: I avoid the large metal detectors (called backscatters). The regular ones I’ll walk through, but the others I’ll ask to “opt out” requesting a pat-down search instead.

Do’s:

- Give yourself an extra 15 minutes to get to the flight.
- Cosmic Radiation – Fly at night when possible, I use supplements such as Astaxanthin, Resveratrol, Zinc, & Vitamin E – see my blog here for links - https://theartofunity.com/which-supplements-do-i-take/

Pregnant and flying

Don’ts

- Always avoid flying during solar storms called a solar particle event since the radiation during this time can deliver a higher dose of radiation in one flight than is recommended for the entirety of the pregnancy, according to the CDC. Event forecast here - http://www.swpc.noaa.gov/forecasts

- Avoid flying during their first trimester.

Grounding

Do’s

- Travel with an earthing mat to sleep on at your destination
- Touch the Earth as soon as possible when you get off the plane
- Touch the metal bar on the seat in front of you with your socked foot.

Protect yourself from everyday EMF Radiation - 

Traveler’s Thrombosis - Economy-Class Syndrome

This happens from Sitting for too long in cramped conditions.

Do’s

- Wearing loose clothing,
- Drink lots of water
- Walk around the cabin
- Stretch or minor exercise
- Sleeping horizontally as you can in first class.
The idea is to make sure you’re feeling good circulation in your legs.

Don’ts:

- Don’t cross your legs at the knee
- Avoiding alcohol or sodas
- Avoid sitting for more than an hour without getting up to circulate blood flow.

Germs and bacteria

Do’s:

- Pack disinfectant wipes and wipe down any surface you're using - tray tables, window shades, and armrests.
- I also take a liposomal vitamin C and D before I get on the plane and on a long flight halfway through.
- Mention at the security checkpoint they are homeopathic medicine, so they don’t put it through the x-ray machine as the radiation may lessen their effect.
- Dip a cotton swap in coconut oil and rub it on the inside of my nostrils. (It’s antibacterial and can help to prevent sickness and dryness.
- Bandage any open wounds

Don’ts:

- Don’t touch anything in the bathroom without a paper towel in your hand.
- Don’t rub your eyes or touch your nose or mouth -- that's how many viruses and diseases spread.
- Don't go barefoot at security checkpoints. Wear or bring socks to avoid athlete's foot and other fungal infections.

Hand sanitizer

Mix pure water in a small spray bottle with a couple drops of essential oils. I use “OnGuard,” Clove, Cinnamon. Can also use Lavender, Melaleuca (tea tree), Frankincense. This is non-toxic and edible when using my favorite oils here:

- click “shop” in the top menu bar

Other Essential Oils

I also carry lemon oil and another blend called digestzen. I put the lemon in my water as it kills germs and I put a few drops of the digestzen in my mouth and drink water as that helps if you’ve ingested any bad bacteria or virus.

I also have peppermint in case of any headache or nausea, which is common on a plane as the air.

Severe Dehydration

It’s hard to stay hydrated on a flight as the cabin air is actually dryer than a desert. Can cause nausea, headache, sickness, and cramps

Don’ts:

- Drink coffee, soda, energy drinks or alcohol
- Junk food
- Processed foods
- High Sodium food

Do’s:

- Drink at least 8 oz. of water every hour in the air.
- Bring your own food – Healthy snacks, Nuts, fruit, wraps, homemade protein bars, protein powder in a baggie.
- Fast if you don’t have food (just drinking water)

High decibel sounds causing hearing loss

Don’ts:

Avoid sitting in the back of the plane

Do’s:

- Use noise-reducing headphones or earplugs.

Jet Lag:

Do’s:

- Touch the earth or at least your earthing mat,
- Get as much sunlight as you can
- Eat alkaline foods like green vegetables
- Have Green Tea or other caffeinated tea to help assimilate to the new time zone.
