(NaturalNews) Traveling has always had some health risks. But today those risks are higher, especially for those of us who prefer to use supplements and avoid processed foods.
If you travel by air, you may be confronted with deciding on being groped or getting radiated by X-ray backscatter machines that haven't been independently tested for safety. (http://www.naturalnews.com/030607_naked_body_scanners_radiation.html
The EU banned backscatter X-ray machines from airport scanning in November 2011 until they can be proven safe. Scanners that use millimeter radio wave technology instead of X-ray technology are permitted. So you won't have to be concerned if the airport you go through uses millimeter radio waves instead of X-rays.
So now that you're on the plane, not to worry except for the food, right? Wrong. You're exposed to more natural radiation at higher altitudes, which is another reason to avoid the airport X-ray scanners.
Radiation effects are cumulative. So it's wise to have access to herbs or supplements that help fight off radiation consequences. Here are some. (http://www.naturalnews.com/033411_radiation_sickness_supplements.html
You probably don't know about this occasional, undisclosed hazard
Cabin air, contaminated beyond what most know and accept, can do serious damage to your health. There is a hidden hazard the airline industry doesn't want you to know about. It's called aerotoxic syndrome,
and it's real.
The consequences are devastating, yet few know about them until it's too late. The medical system is mostly clueless and helpless handling it. Here's Health Ranger Mike Adam's information on aerotoxic syndrome. (http://www.naturalnews.com/029014_air_travel_aerotoxic_syndrome.html
If you detect a faint scent of burning oil or see a vague trace of smoke in the cabin, and maybe notice you or others are getting woozy, it's time to don that small, inexpensive portable activated charcoal mask you got online here. (http://www.aerotoxic.org/aerotoxic
If you're prone toward motion sickness from air or sea travel, make sure you have high quality high potency ginger capsules
Watch what you eat and don't drink the water...
Carry some organic raw trail mix packets if you can
. Try to avoid too much street vended foods, unless you carry and use an item that's perfect for purifying water and protecting you against infections - iodine.
You can choose from Lugol's solution (potassium iodide), Nascent iodine and Iodoral.
In addition to purifying whatever water you drink, the iodine acts as an anti-microbial and anti-fungal. Too much iodine taken over a short period is usually eliminated through the urine. So use it amply when traveling.
In order to maintain your friendly gut bacteria levels for digestion and immunity, carry an abundant supply of power packed probiotics that don't require refrigeration.
Whenever you have the opportunity, indulge in whatever probiotic rich fermented foods
may be available: Kim-Chi, sauerkraut, and miso are some examples.
If you inadvertently consume a poison, food grade activated charcoal powder mixed in water can save your life. (http://www.naturalnews.com/028461_activated_charcoal_medicine.html
