Intravenous (IV) vitamin therapy before travelling. It would be ideal to get IV vitamin therapy before travelling.

Get grounded in your new environment. In order to adapt quickly to a new environment and especially a change in time zones, you can walk barefoot on the ground of your new location. Your feet need to come in contact with the earth, therefore you need to walk on the grass, soil or sand to reap the benefits of grounding. Grounding or earthing are old practices. The earth is naturally rich in electrons. When you are in contact with the ground the earth’s electrons are conducted into your body bringing it to the same electrical potential as the earth. This is a great way to balance your circadian rhythms, your internal 24-hour biological process, with your new destination and greatly reduce any signs and symptoms of jet lag. No one wants to be down and out when they are traveling. It is better to be prepared and take some preventative precautions to help you on your way. These simple tactics will help to keep you healthy and truly have that adventure of a lifetime.
