Air Travel Part 1
Flying Free across the country, across oceans, we can all fly anywhere on the planet. What does it mean to be free? Hopefully that you will still feel good in flight and once you've landed. I like to take some homeopathic "No Jet Lag" tablets. Bach flower rescue remedy can help too. Being on airplanes is like being in a pressure cooker with very bad air. You lose liquid and get constricted. The worst things to eat then would be those that dry you out more and create contraction. And that seems to be just what the airlines like to give you. Pretzels, cookies and other dry hard baked things with poor quality salt or immune paralyzing sugar involved. I just told my friend flying from London to L.A. today to go and get herself some green apples to take on the plane. Refreshing, re-hydrating, and very low in sugar, they will help her be more at ease. Smarty that she is, she picked up some yummy cashews too, so she'll have some fat and protein to keep her going for the long haul. Being high in magnesium the cashews can help her relax her muscles and get some much needed sleep!
