Prepare to Prevent
We both start taking a herbal or vitamin supplement before we leave, usually for a week, to build up immunity for the airports and flights. I try to take no unforeseen chances with our health
I take Echinacea Garlic Zinc & C
I feel we need to boost our immunity due to the long time period in the aircraft, the drier air and the fact that the aircraft is large therefore more chance of a passenger carrying a virus.
I can almost guarantee that the person getting on coughing & sneezing is going to sit behind me or across from me.
Older travellers often have some weakness in their immune system already so why take any unnecessary risks, plan ahead for your healthy trip
