For most of us, summertime means taking off and heading to our favorite vacation spot. My goal is to help you stay healthy on your summer vacation and address some of the other issues that may arise from spending additional time outside and being more active.

Summer and sunshine go hand in hand, and taking care of your skin goes right along with it.We all know of the harmful effects the sun can have on our skin, yet many still challenge the belief that it will happen to< them. Luckily for us, there are some great natural approaches to dealing with the sun and its harmful rays. Let’s start on the outside of the body. Your local Vitamin Shoppe offers natural sunscreen to protect yourself when you are outside. Supplementing with carotenoids like lutein, lycopene and zeaxanthin is what I recommend for helping your body deal with this damage from the inside out. Although there is still limited science to prove that this actually helps, I believe that these carotenoids were put in the plants to protect them from the harmful rays and therefore may provide us with the same benefit. Even if you don’t spend a lot of time in the sun, carotenoids are great antioxidants that will provide you with added health benefits.

While traveling, diarrhea and constipation seem to be the biggest issue.There are so many reasons these conditions can happen, but in general, they are usually easy to address.With regards to “Traveler’s Diarrhea,” I recommend using probiotics such as acidophilus on a daily basis. According to an article published in a 1995 edition of Chemotherapy, Bifidobacterium in combination with Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacillus bulgaricus, or Streptococcus thermophilus seem to decrease the chance of developing traveler's diarrhea. If using a probiotic isn’t enough, or you forget to take this advice, then I suggest using a fiber supplement, drinking plenty of water, or consuming charcoal capsules. Remember, if you are running a fever or not able to drink enough fluids, please seek medical attention immediately. This is especially true for children and the elderly. With regard to constipation, many things can trigger this, but dehydration, alteration in diet, and changein time zones seem to be the biggest causes. Supplements such as fiber and magnesium can be a great help. Magnesium is the main ingredient in many over-the-counter products for constipation and is considered relatively safe for most to use. When adding fiber, don’t forget your water.Too little water will constipate you further. Also, avoid refined foods and dairy while traveling, as these food groups can contribute to your problem.

As long as we are mentioning changes in time zones, jetlag can be a big problem for many. I change three time zones every week or two while traveling between California and the east coast, and I’ve learned that taking melatonin can facilitate the adjustment and not ruin the first few days of vacation (or the return home). If you haven’t changed time zones before, you may need to allow one day for each time zone to feel like yourself again (ie. flying from NYC to LA = three time zones or up to three days to adjust.) In my opinion, taking a supplement can help cut down that time significantly.Why let fatigue ruin your precious time off?

My last recommendation for your summer travel is to take along an immune supplement. If you are looking for an acute supplement, my family travels with Esberitox. This is great for the whole family because the tablets are chewable and are therefore safe for children to use.

Your summer vacation is something you look forward to all winter long. It’s something you worked hard for, and you shouldn’t have to make any sacrifices. Incorporating the above recommendations will keep you feeling healthy all summer long.
