IMMUNE BOOST for flying

Do you ever pick up a nasty bug when flying? Will get sick once you've landed at your dream destination? Feel so exhausted on arrival that you need at least a few days to recover your energy?

You can help avoid the above by giving your system an immune boost before flying and take a course of Echinacea tincture which is available to buy over the counter at most chemists. Take a week or so before your trip and a few days into your holiday and repeat for your return flight by taking a few days before to help ward off any hostile germs within the plane.

You can now buy Echinacea pastilles which are ideal to suck during a flight and perfect for children.

For those longer flights – a dose of Arnica before, during and after the journey will make you feel less disorientated. It will also help with a loss of sleep during night flights and if you are travelling through different time zones, then come in and ask one our homeopaths about the remdy Cocculus.
