View Full Version : Three Travel Tips: Stay Healthy When You Fly

08-17-2007, 04:29 AM
1) Take an early flight to minimize your risk of a delay.
2) If your seatmate is sick, ask for a new seat.
“There is a risk to having spray particles land on you (such as from a sneeze), since they can enter your body if you wipe that area of your skin on your nose or eyes...If you’re sitting next to someone who’s sick, you can ask to be reseated. Several airlines say that if there’s a seat available, they will reseat passengers upon request.”
3) Take echinacea. “To fight off cold and flu germs that might be lurking in the stale air of the jet cabin, start taking the herb echinacea several days before you leave. Three times a day, swallow a teaspoon of a 1:5 tincture made from Echinacea angustifolia root. Continue to take it regularly during your vacation and after you return home, but for no more than a total of 10 days.”

It is not uncommon for demonstrations to take place in Thailand. Over the last few months political demonstrations have been taking place in Bangkok at Democracy Monument (near Khao San Road) around the 10th and 19th of every month.

These are some good tips as a precaution. However, you want to make sure you are covered if you happen to get sick while on your trip. In addition to travel insurance, it may be a good idea to pick up some travel health insurance (http://www.mnui.com/) as well. You really never know if you will need it or not. It is better to be safe rather than sorry. You can pay a small premium now, rather than having to pay the potential whole bill later.
