Fear of Flying and Jet lag

Question: "Can you give me some advices to help me for my fear of planes, and disorders for Vata, please? Such as Jet lag, food, constipation, etc."

Answer: The best thing is a herb called Jatamansi (Nardostachys jatamansi DC) but this hard to get on such a short notice. You can combine Valerian root with Centella asiatica or Ginkgo biloba as Mother Tinctures (MT). This is something you can get at the pharmacist or herb shop tomorrow.

Dose: Valeriane MT 30 drops X3 per day + Centella asiatica MT 20 drops X3 per day at the same time

if you cannot get Centella then use Ginkgo instead.

Start 3 days before flying in the airplane and continue for one week after arriving. Good luck!

If you can get Jatamansi then take 250mg X 3 per day with warm water and honey before meals for three days before and one week after arriving.
