7 Natural Remedies for All Travelers to Carry Lev Dolgachov/PhotoSpin

Summer is one of the most popular times to travel. You could be heading off to the next state over, or around the world. It really doesn’t matter how far you're going — you will be away from your comfortable routine.

So it is great to have some natural remedies in your bag to help you stay healthy and have fun while you are away from home!

1) Enjoying your meals
Digestive enzymes are one of the best ways enjoy and digest your food. They can help to support your digestion and reduce constipation.

2) Reducing pain and indigestion

Digestion issues or headaches can ruin any vacation. There is a simple solution for both — ginger. Ginger is known for soothe a digestion issues including nausea. It is also good for pain, aches and even congestion. You can carry ginger tea bags or ginger chews in your purse or bag.

3) Staying regular

Staying with the theme of healthy digestion and regular bowel movements, probiotics are great for travel as well. It is common when we travel to get a little constipated. Have you ever noticed this? Well, probiotics can help prevent constipation.

Probiotics can also support your immune system which can be stressed while you travel. If you are taking probiotics with you, make sure they are a type that don’t have to be refrigerated.

4) Coping with Diarrhea

When you are in a different city or country there is always a possibility that you could have some stomach bug. Activated charcoal, along with plenty of water, coats the digestive tract and absorbs the chemicals to reduce chemical exposure.

It can give relief from food poisoning, stomach bugs, gluten exposure, gas, bloating or diarrhea.

5) Having Difficulty Sleeping

Magnesium is very good for mild sleeping problems that can occur when you are traveling. It can also be good for cramping muscles from unaccustomed long walks. It calms the nerves and can keep your bowels regular while you are traveling as well.

I personally have often recommended homeopathics to help to speed up the healing process.

6) Dealing with Anxiety
