Well, the holiday season is here and you know what that means… travel. If you’re traveling a lot this holiday season to see family, friends or just to relax, you need to take the extra precautions to keep yourself from getting sick.
Here are my suggestions to protect yourself before and after your trip:
Ginger calms nerves, relieves nausea due to motion sickness, is an overall digestive soother, and acts as a gentle decongestant to ease sinus irritation.
Carry at least 2 bottles of pure filtered water to through your flight. Drinking supports the next important tip.
Drinking will make it so you must get out of your seat to use the bathroom, hopefully at least every half hour. Each bathroom trip, stand and stretch, raise up your arms, wiggle your feet, jump up and down. The jumping helps to compensate for the absence of muscular activity in the calves from sitting for extended periods, which severely slows lower limb circulation.
Carry a small spray bottle to mist your face while flying. Misting hydrates the skin, and helps keep nasal passages moistened.
Bring food, such as fresh fruit, raw nuts and seeds, organic food bars or a sandwich made on whole grain bread. Make sure to bring enough food to keep you from eating the salty, fatty, roasted peanuts and cheap preservative-filled pretzels served on flights these days!
Do not drink alcohol
It will dehydrate you, dull your senses, keep you from drinking enough water, as well as leave you prone to infection due to the immune-lowering effects of alcohol.
Most Important: Rest!
Travel well rested. This commonly overlooked aspect of healthy travel sets the stage for a stress cycle that can last your entire trip. Hard as it is to get out the door, be sure to sleep well before you travel.
The holidays are officially upon us and that means stress levels are rising to an all time high! Here are some helpful and essential tips to lower your stress levels and allow you to have a relaxing and more importantly, fun, holiday season!
1. Emphasize an organic, whole foods diet with plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables, complex carbohydrates, and adequate amounts of essential fatty acid.
2. Drink plenty of pure, filtered water throughout the day, to avoid dehydration, a common but overlooked cause of stress.
3. Be sure to eat a healthy breakfast. Skipping breakfast can add to stress levels by making you more tired and irritable.
4. Avoid all sugars, refined carbohydrates, food additives and preservatives, and processed foods, and minimize your intake of alcohol and caffeine throughout the day.
5. Regularly practice relaxation exercises and/or meditation.
6. Exercise at least three times each week, for 30 minutes each session. Gentle aerobic exercises combined with moderate weight training can significantly relieve stress and improve your overall mood. Be sure not to overexert yourself, however, as doing so will only increase your stress levels.
7. Useful nutritional supplements include vitamin A, B-complex vitamins, vitamin B6, vitamin B12, vitamin C, vitamin E, as well as a complete multivitamin/multimineral formula.
8. Useful herbs for dealing with stress including American ginseng, chamomile, passionflower, and valerian root, all of which can be taken as teas.
9. Bach flowers and other flower essences can help to heal unresolved or inappropriately expressed negative emotions that can cause stress, as well as many other physical health problems.
10. Get adequate amounts of sleep each night and be sure to go to bed at the same time.
11. Set up your daily schedule so that you have plenty of time to deal with your daily tasks and focus on accomplishing those that are the most important first.
12. Become more conscious of your fears and worries and examine them objectively. Doing so can significantly reduce their hold on you.
13. Avoid long periods of isolation. Spend regular quality time with your loved ones. If you live alone, seek out your friends.
14. Find and devote yourself to one or more hobbies that you truly enjoy.
15. And finally, cultivate your sense of humor and laugh more often!

“Next to vitamin D, C is probably the second most powerful vitamin you can take.” –KTRN
Vitamin C from citrus was introduced a couple of centuries ago as a cure for scurvy rampant among British mariners. But just what is scurvy? Scurvy is actually defined as a deficiency of vitamin C. Its myriad manifestations appear today. It appears that scurvy was not a particular disease, but a condition that led to other diseases.
The difference today is there are many other new names assigned to diseases that are often related to scurvy. This benefits Big Pharma`s bottom line for creating new expensive pharmaceuticals. It`s no surprise that inexpensive Vitamin C`s ability to safely cure maladies from colds to cancer is marginalized by the Medical Mafia.
Dr. Ronald Hunninghake is an internationally recognized expert on vitamin C who has personally supervised more than 60,000 intravenous (IV) vitamin C administrations.

Spirulina is a blue-green algae which is commercially produced and widely marketed as a “superfood” and immune booster. It is also a rich source of natural, plant-based iron, calcium, vitamin A and vitamin C, and an excellent source of plant protein, with up to 70% of its dry weight being protein. The alpha-linolenic acid profile in spirulina is the highest in the plant kingdom, coming in third overall behind milk and evening primrose oil.
A study published in the Spring 2005 issue of the Journal of Medicinal Food indicated that ingested spirulina made a significant improvement in human patients with nasal allergies, also known as allergic rhinitis. In this study, researchers measured the amount of cytokines, interferon, and other immune system signals found in the bloodstream before and after taking spirulina. Cytokines are immune system molecules which send signals to alert immune “fighters” to come to the body’s aid when a pathogen is encountered. They act as auto-immune communicators. Cytokines can be either proteins, glycoproteins, or peptides.
According to the University of South Carolina School of Medicine, interferons are another type of immune system signal. They work by binding to receptors located on cell membranes, sending a “red alert” message to the cells. Cells then respond to this message by triggering 20-30 genes which then create an anti-viral cellular environment.

“Vitamin C is amazing. Notice how in this story they talk about how the doctors didn’t want to use vitamin C – even after is was working!” –KTRN
Remember the story of Alan Smith from New Zealand, and his dramatic recovery from a coma with mega-dose vitamin C? That story went viral and was featured in the New Zealand version of “60 Minutes.” But some sources didn’t have it quite right. The mega-dose vitamin C was not by IV for the last two weeks. They were through a uniquely new oral C product.
Alan pulled out of his coma from white-out pneumonia (lungs whited out in X-rays) and complications with leukemia. He had been on life support, and doctors were threatening to turn it off and let him die when his family intervened. They went through a series of sagas and legal hassles to get the hospital to administer IV C.
The doctors complied at first, and there was enough improvement to convince the hospital staff not to pull the plug on his life support as they had threatened. But the hospital felt they knew better and stopped the IV C. Alan’s condition worsened. After legal intervention, they continued at only two grams IV C daily instead of the 50 grams daily before. Alan’s condition went into a critical limbo.
Alan Smith only began to improve after taking Lypo-Spheric packets.
You can view the first segment of the 60 Minutes Alan Smiths story here (http://www.3news.co.nz/Living-Proof-Vitamin-C—Miracle-Cure/tabid/371/articleID/171328/Default.aspx).
So how did six grams per day of a special vitamin C oral compound manage to do the work of 50 to 100 grams of IV C daily?
If you read my book, Natural Cures They Don’t Want You to Know About, I mentioned the four causes of virtually every disease. I don’t care if you have lupus, MS, heart disease, breast cancer, or prostate cancer. I don’t care if you have headaches, migraines, insomnia, or depression. I don’t care if you have herpetic viruses, or if you get colds and flus, or if you have fibromyalgia, arthritis, acid reflux, gas, bloating, or indigestion. You name the problem…it’s caused by four things!
Number one is nutritional deficiencies. For example, we know scurvy is a vitamin C deficiency. Rickets is coming back with a vengeance, and it caused by a vitamin D deficiency. So nutritional deficiencies cause illness and disease.

“Whole food based Vitamin C is the way to go – without fillers.” –KTRN
Among all supplemental vitamins, vitamin C may be the most controversial. The scientist most responsible for bringing vitamin C’s benefits to the public, Linus Pauling, has been vilified in an attempt to kill the messenger and marginalize the message. But proof of vitamin C efficacy continues despite the medical mafia’s suppressive efforts.
The November 24, 2011 Journal of Orthomolecular Medicine newsletter discussed a study referenced in PubMed that linked high blood levels of vitamin C with lower incidence of heart failure, while lower serum levels of vitamin C were connected to higher death rates. (1) The study summary abstract is here (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/…).
If you peeked at the report summary, you’ll have noticed that the study was based on determining if high vegetable and fruit consumption is beneficial for heart health. Most of us know this already, but the bio-marker used in the study was vitamin C serum blood levels.
Orthomolecular medicine relies on the application of high dose supplements to treat both mental and physical disease. High doses are often rendered by injection or IV for critical situations, such as the one that rescued a New Zealand farmer from his near death coma (http://www.naturalnews.com/030599_v…).
In 2007, the CDC reported over 600,000 deaths from heart disease. The Orthomolecular.org newsletter examines this study with the angle that supplementing with inexpensive vitamin C would increase your vitamin C blood levels safely.
According to the newsletter, each 20 micromole/liter (μmol/L) of vitamin C in the blood reduced the heart failure death rate by nine percent. It may take only 500 mgs of vitamin C to achieve 80 micromoles/liter.
Since vitamin C is not produced by the human body, and absorption rates vary among individuals, it’s apparent that taking more even more vitamin C is a good heart health investment.

“Cold are easy to prevent and cure. Pump up your immune system and watch your colds virtually disappear.” –KTRN
Winter cold and flu viruses can cause annoying, debilitating, or even dangerous symptoms. Fortunately, there are ways to head off colds and prevent complications.
If you think you may have been exposed to a virus, for example someone sneezes on you, one of your kids has a cold, or you shake hands with someone who is coughing, you can use xylitol nasal spray (Xlear) to ward off the cold. Xylitol inhibits the reproduction of viruses and bacteria.
The initial symptoms of a viral illness may include runny nose, sneezing, sore throat, foggy thinking, tiredness, aching muscles, headache, and fever with chills. As soon as you get any of these symptoms start taking vitamin C and elderberry extract (Sambucus nigra). Elderberry is available in liquid extracts and syrups that children can take, or as tablets or capsules, often combined with Echinacea. Elderberry is an antiviral herb that has been proven to reduce the symptoms of colds and flus, and Echinacea stimulates white blood cell production to encourage the body’s fight against infection.
The easiest form of vitamin C for children to take is Emergen-C flavored, powder packets, which also contain vitamin A, zinc, and elderberry. Avoid using chewable vitamin C, which can eat away tooth enamel. Colloidal silver or a liquid silver in water preparation (Silvercillin by Designs for Health) will provide additional antiviral support.
