Travel Essentials to Staying Healthy
Tips & tricks to protect yourself during long journeys.
Last summer I had the good fortune of traveling to Kenya. It was truly an incredible experience visiting Africa, experiencing all the wildlife and meeting beautiful people along the way. One concern I had before the trip, was the amount of time I would be spending in an airplane. I am always mindful of the fact that we are breathing in recycled air, sitting next to people that may be ill, and being effected by the cosmic radiation that comes from being in high altitudes. The 25 plus hours of traveling for me were not as difficult as I anticipated, because I felt protected by my travel essentials.
Here are some tips and products that have saved me during long journeys; my travel essentials.

1) Do not go through the Back Scatter Scanners. These are the scanners where you raise your arms and are x-rayed. These have been outlawed in Europe due to the fact that they use ionized radiation which has been known to damage DNA. I am one of the really annoying people who opts out and asks to be patted down. I have to get to the airport a bit earlier knowing this will take some more time; however my health and wellbeing is worth it. I always feel a bit ‘punished’ by the airport personal for choosing this route but peace of mind is worth ruffling some feathers. Here is an excellent article from Dr. Mercola that says every time we go through the machines we are being exposed to cancerous radiation. If you think I am being an alarmist please research this topic there are some fascinating articles on the use of ionized radiation.
2) Essential Oils
Using essential oils for traveling are excellent for deterring microbes from being breathed in. I use doTerra OnGuard Essential Oil religiously by spraying few drops into a travel sprayer and spraying the air around me. I also put a few drops under my nose and in my water. On Guard is a powerful, medicinal grade combination of wild orange, cinnamon, rosemary, eucalyptus, and clove bud. They also make doTERRA Breathe Essential Oil Blend you can take orally which is genius.
I also used the Elizabeth Van Buren Travel Essential Kit which comes with an array of very useful blends like: Sleep, Headache, Digest, Cold and Flu, Breathe and After Sport. On my trip I used the sleep remedy to help with jet lag and the breathe to keep away mosquitos.
3) The ACZ Nano Cellular Zeolite Spray
The ACZ NANO ADVANCED CELLULAR ZEOLITE Spray helps the body eliminate toxins, heavy metals and free radicals from the body. When ingested this powerful spray can prevent radiation from staying in the body. ” Zeolite is so effective in binding toxins that it was given to victims of the Chernobyl explosion to ingest in order to bind the radioactive isotopes that were released and thus reduce radiation levels in their bodies.”
4) Anti Parasite
My doctor referred me to this company since she knows I visit Kauai often. I love this company Garden Island Infusions since they create their formula from the island’s bounty. This is a wonderful blend of black cumin and papaya seeds that when ingested can eliminate any parasites. Parasites are not just a third world issue, they exist in many places and most of us have them without even knowing it. Taking these seeds either with yogurt or just on a spoon is a good preventative. I am addicted to the taste of pepper cumin and papaya seeds.
5) Hydration for the Face Radiant Rose Water or Purity Rose Water
Flying can be taxing and dehydrating for our faces so I always carry a travel bottle of either the Radiant Rose Water or simply the Purity rose water. They are travel essentials! When flying I spray this every hour on my face to keep my skin moist and hydrated. They both contain rose which is anti aging and balances the PH. The Radiant has numerous herbs and oils which keeps the skin glowing and youthful.
6) Sacred Geometry Necklace and Other EMF Repellents
I always wear my Flower of life Pendant when flying on planes since it helps protect against EMFs. The way this pendant works is with it offers a frequency of 7.83 Hertz known as the Schumann Resonance. This is the frequency that the entire Earth’s magnetosphere resonates at. When we are in natural environments away from big cities, this is the predominant frequency, which our body feels. It has a profound “healing” effect. When we go back to the city, there are many other frequencies that override this resonance putting our body into a more “chaotic” state of being. By wearing the Harmonic Resonance Pendant, your body is benefiting from this healing frequency, and your system can more effectively rebuild and repair itself. The Schumann Resonance was first used for healing by Dr. Ludwig in Germany, who is known as the Father of Magnetic Therapy. Dr. Ludwig convinced NASA to install Schumann Resonance devices on spacecraft to have a stabilizing effect on the astronaut’s health in space. You can get more information on these studies here .
All the other elements in that EMF post like the black tourmaline, chlorella, and pink Himalayan sea salt also help tremendously. Perhaps cleansing in some bath salts after a trip would be a good way to release the radiation absorbed from flying.
