Take Your Healthy Lifestyle With You On Vacation
As summer draws to a close many of us are checking our calendars to see if we can squeeze in one more vacation travel adventure before the busy fall season sets in. Vacations are an important part of maintaining a healthy life balance because they allow us a chance to rest and recharge our batteries. The last thing you want when you are enjoying a trip to the beach or the mountains is a bout with gastric distress. Make sure you take proper care of yourself to keep your dream vacation from becoming a gastrointestinal nightmare.
Our bodies follow natural rhythms and the changes associated with travel can create challenges for our digestive systems. Travel often interrupts the body clock that regulates hunger and bowel movements, especially when you cross time zones. It’s also easy to fall into poor eating habits while traveling. People who otherwise eat healthy diets might be tempted to consume too much caffeine and alcohol, snack between meals and gulp down food in a hurry when rushing to catch a plane or train. The result can be abdominal pain, bloating, constipation and diarrhea.
One easy way to help prevent gastric upset is to start taking probiotic supplements at least two weeks prior to your trip. Probiotics, which are available in supplement form at health food stores, populate the gastrointestinal tract with friendly bacteria that limits the growth of unwanted bad bacteria such as salmonella, clostridia and E-coli. Many people take probiotics every day to maintain a healthy microflora balance in the intestines.
Make sure your travel plans include time for adequate rest and exercise. Eat light meals and drink at least 8 to 10 glasses of clean purified water every day while you are on vacation. To the extent that you can, try to stay on your regular mealtime schedule and make the healthiest possible food choices.
If you do experience gastrointestinal problems when you travel, try to get your body back on track with natural remedies. First of all, you will need to drink plenty of fluids to avoid becoming dehydrated. Start with sips of any fluid other than caffeinated beverages. Herbal teas, especially those containing mint, can be helpful in soothing an upset stomach. Chamomile is another herb that can be used in tea form to relieve a variety of stomach ailments including spasms, intestinal cramps and gas pains. Slippery elm, which is available in supplement form, can help reduce the inflammation associated with an upset digestive tract.
It’s a good idea to pack some natural remedies in case they are not readily available at your vacation destination. Take your healthy lifestyle with you on vacation and enjoy your end of the summer escape!
