Worried about your health when traveling? Prevention is always idea! There are many ways to super boost up our immune systems! Let’s make our bodies the most resilient they can be, to anything they come in contact with. Make sure you are purchasing high quality, pure nutrients. There is a big difference in what’s out there! Look for GMP certified, purity and potency guaranteed. We don’t recommend purchasing on Amazon due to too many issues with counterfeit products.

Vitamin D3

We recommend D3 10,000 + K2 or D3 liquid by Xymogen

  • Prevention: 1,000 IUs per 20 lbs/body weight take loading dose for 1 week if you haven’t currently been taking it. (loading dose = 3x regular dose)

Zinc Glycinate

We recommend Zinc Glycinate by Xymogen

  • Onset of any symptoms: 1 hourly for 2 days, then every other hour.

Virapel or Kids Cold

Powerful anti-viral, immune booster herbal blends by Weed Botanicals

Kid Cold – 1 dropper (2 squeezes) per 50 lbs.*Dose down based on weight for your children
Virapel – 1 dropper (2 squeezes)

  • Prevention: 1 dose, 2x daily

  • Onset of any symptoms: 1 dose hourly for 2 days, then 1 dose every other hour.

Thieves Essential Oil

A super blend of antiviral, antibacterial essential oils

This comes in:
– Hand soap
– Spray that can be used on your body and surfaces
– House cleaner
– Hand sanitizer
– High potent oil that can be diffused in the air, applied to bodies and consumed orally.

This is a much better option than antibacterial soaps and wipes because this only kills the “bad bugs” and helps boost the immune system!

  • Prevention: 1 drop on chest or throat 2x day
    *Sensitive skin: can apply to feet or dilute. Dilution = 10 drops per tablespoon of another oil like almond, coconut, avocado, olive, jojoba. This can be used as a chest rub also.
  • When Traveling:
    – Spray everything around you; tray tables, arm rests, your seat… (Yes! Be that person on the plane! People will thank you.)
    – Spray in mouth and on hands throughout the flight.
    – 1 drop on chest
  • Onset of symptoms: 1 Drop on chest (or diluted chest rub) hourly for 2 days, then every 2-3 hours until 100% better.

Lifestyle: Food, water, rest, mindset

Food: Stock up on nutrient dense foods.  Bone broths with lots veggies. Consume many different color fruits and veggies daily, they are packed with all kinds of good things for us!

Avoid sugar!  Sugar actually decreases the immune system!

Sleep: Listen to your body, rest when tired, don’t overschedule…The average person needs 7-9 hours of sleep/night, kids need 9-11+

Water: Drink at least ½ your weight in ounces of purified water daily + healthy drinks

Mindset: Focus on what you want vs. fearing what you don’t want. Check in with yourself daily. Teach your kids how to do the same. See in your mind what you want.  Check out some guided meditation apps!

Exercise: Listen to your body, move in a healthy way everyday. Break a sweat. If tired, do a rest and recovery workout vs. pushing through…

Extras:

  • Get adjusted! Preventatively and at any onset as well as before and after you travel.
  • Acupuncture session
  • Immune Support IV with Vitamindrip
  • Far infrared sauna
