When you prepare for your next trip, pack these tried-and-true natural remedies and avoid common travel maladies.
Melatonin. Take three milligrams before your new bedtime. Place a pillow and blanket on the plane and take your melatonin about 20 minutes before you're ready to snuggle in. This can help you to acclimate to new time zones.
Probiotics. Take two capsules a day, starting two days before your departure and continuing throughout the trip. Probiotics help fight the "bad" bacteria that cause travelers' diarrhea.
Ginger. If you're susceptible to motion sickness, pack ginger. Capsules containing the powdered form help, but you can also take a few crystallized ginger candies before a boat ride or long car trip.
