Travel health troubles don’t care whether it’s business or pleasure. Avoid jet-lag and other aches and pains by following these tips.

Before you travel, plan some prior protein. The last meal before traveling should contain a good balance of protein and starch, so you will feel satisfied.

Avoid the salt and calorie-laden nibbles at the airport, or in-flight.

Remember, the air in planes is dry. So, drink non-alcoholic decaf beverages and water to avoid dehydration. And even healthy people can get blood clots in their legs after long flights.

Try to walk every now and then during your flight and stretch your calf muscles, even while you are sitting.

Finally, traveler’s constipation is a natural response to unfamiliar environments. Take in lots of fiber and water.

Safe and happy travels.
