Cure Jet lag with a magic bottle? Sounds like a dream, but you can prevent it with simple steps.

Do you know what desynchronosis is? It’s the medical term for jet lag, a temporary sleep disorder that’s caused by moving through several time zones in a short period. The more time zones one crosses, the more tired and sleepy he or she will be. Jet lag usually results in disturbed sleep, daytime fatigue, difficulty concentrating and functioning, and even stomach problems.
Studies have shown that for each time zone crossed, it takes 1-2 days to recover. This is because moving through time zones causes the internal body clock or circadian rhythm to be disrupted.
“cues such as light exposure, mealtimes,
social engagement, and activities
regulate our circadian rhythm”
says Allison T. Siebern, Ph.D. at the
Stanford University Sleep Medicine Center.
The only way to recover from this is to give the body time to adjust to the new time zone.
1. What To Do Before You Begin Traveling
There is no fixed cure for jet lag, but its effects can be reduced by taking a few precautions before traveling.
Get your body used to the new time zone by changing your eating and sleeping timings.
2. What To Do During Travel
While you are traveling, make sure you have small meals instead. For example, carbohydrate-rich food can make you feel heavy and tired.
3. What To Do After Travel
Try not to sleep after landing at your destination if it’s day time there, it would take your body longer to recover from jet lag.
While all these are conscious ways to avoid the paralyzing effects of jet lag, there is one simple yet effective method as well. It’s called earthing.
Earthing After Travel
That’s why Earthing is necessary, the negative potential from the Earth will cancel out the effect of the positive potential, giving you immediate respite.
The concept of Earthing is explained by
Nobel Prize winner Richard Feynman in his lectures on electromagnetism.
There are further studies conducted by other experts, including the California Institute of Human Sciences, to strengthen this claim.
Y travel blogs, co-founders Caroline and Craig Makepeace, have also written about Earthing as their secret to beating jet lag. There’s little worry about now when you’re traveling, as long as you take a few simple measures to beat jet lag.
