Overcome Top Travel Woes with Natural Remedies
Low immunity, lack of oxygen in the blood, and insomnia are some of the factors that cause exhaustion or illness during travels. Make the most out of your trip by staying healthy and feeling energised to embrace the adventures that await.
Jet lag typically occurs during long flights that occur when travelling across time zones on a plane. It is considered a circadian rhythm sleep disorder, which is a disruption of the internal body clock.
It is common feel that your energy level has dipped after a long flight due to the fatigue and even possible insomnia. A jet lag sufferer may also experience a number of physical and emotional symptoms including anxiety, constipation, diarrhea, confusion, dehydration, headache, irritability, nausea, sweating, coordination problems, and dizziness. Children can also suffer the same jet lag symptoms as adults.
Lingzhi is used to treat lethargy as it improves the oxygen carrying capacity of each red blood cell. Therefore, it can improve the metabolism of every cell, giving each cell extra oxygen and energy. The body thus feels energised and focused faster.
#2: Low Immunity
Stress prior and during travel could weaken the immunity system, even if it's for fun and holidays. If you're not careful, you may come home from your trip with an unwelcome memento - like a cold or flu. While exploring new surroundings, you are also opening yourself up to different germs and bacteria.
It has been scientifically proven that Lingzhi strengthens the immune system and restores normal bodily functions. On top of that, Lingzhi also has other functions such as anti-ageing, anti allergy, cleansing effects for blood vessels, and nutritional effects for the brain.
#3: Poor Quality of Sleep
Due to factors during travel such as different environments, different time zones, uncomfortable beds, and irregular sleeping pattern could result in poor quality of sleep. Besides affecting the overall well-being of the traveller, this would also accentuate the other travel woes mentioned on this page.
Bring along some lingzhi capsules to be taken during your travel. Lingzhi regenerates the nervous system and is effective in improving insomnia, nervousness, tension and headache, thus improving quality of sleep.
#4: Tension during Long Flights
The aches, tiredness and general achy feelings that most of us experience on longer flights is often as much to do with blood flow as it is with jet-lag. Besides doing some exercises in the limited confines of the plane, you can also take some Lingzhi to help stabilise the brain, ease blood flow, and promote a good night’s sleep. There will be no need to drink wine or take sleeping pills to induce sleep during the flight.
#5: Poor Digestion
One of the pleasures of travelling overseas is that you get to try out the different local cuisines - and some of these may actually be quite challenging on the stomach.

Lingzhi has the ability to aid digestion, and honey is great too for your digestive system, as well as related problems such as constipation.
#6: Respiratory Woes
Respiratory woes take many forms; from the common cold and flu to walking pneumonia. Cold winter months in foreign countries could aggravate chronic conditions like asthma and bronchitis in those who usually live in tropical weather environments.
Regular consumption of Lingzhi strengthens the respiratory system and the heart. Cordyceps are also good for improving the respiratory system, strengthening the lungs and kidneys, and relieving coughs and reduces mucus.
#7: Muscle Aches and Pains
Muscle aches and pains are typically caused by long journeys on the road, lugging around heavy luggage, and participating in new activities while travelling. Your muscles eventually stiffen because of poor blood circulation, so your immediate goal is to get your blood flowing right. Lingzhi helps to improve blood circulation, along with massages and easy exercises.

Food poisoning can often occur when traveling abroad, especially if you travel to developing countries, or to countries that lack certain resources or regulations that enforce good health. Or sometimes in the spirit of being adventurous you might be game trying out various exotic foods.
