Hey guys I think this is important to share with you as so many of you travel for fun or work reasons! I will never forget when in 2011 I was on a flight to Istambul (beautiful city by the way) and I felt very sick during all the flight, thank God it was a short one but I don't wish this feeling to anyone! So here is what you can do to avoid being sick in the plane!
A study in The New England Journal of Medicine shows that for every 604 flights, a person gets sick and needs medical attention! The most common problems were situations involving loss of consciousness, low blood pressure, respiratory problems, nausea and vomiting!
To have a healthy flight at least do the following:
- Drink plenty of water during the trip, since up there the humidity is low and the body loses fluid.
- Have light meals to prevent indigestion and nausea
- Avoid alcoholic drinks.
- Be careful with sleeping pills. They can have side effects because of the altitude.
- Talk to your doctor before you travel if you have had thrombosis, if you are dealing with cancer or if you have lung problems.
