Car and Jet Sicknesses – If you are sensitive to travel, this may be inevitable however, there are a few things you can do to lessen the effects. First of all, make sure you are otherwise healthy and are not taking medications which upset your stomach already. In addition, anti nausea pills or things like coke syrup or Dramamine may also help. Make sure you drink plenty of fresh water, have fresh air and eat healthy and get plenty of rest to help as well.
TD – If you have ever traveled abroad, you may have encountered the dreaded TD. Though you are not destined to get it, many travelers who eat foods which are not properly cooked or water that is not clean are the first to feel the symptoms of this type of illness. Many places around the world have much lower standards for food safety making it imperative that you protect yourself. Be careful where you eat and if in doubt, ask. Your health is in your hands.
