Did you enjoy travel before Lyme and now don’t go anywhere? When I first was diagnosed, I was too overwhelmed with pain and doctors and illness to consider. Now much better vacation travel is a treat. Travel with Lyme disease takes a little extra effort and organization. It is so worth it. Living a life full of learning love fun and adventure is worth a little effort.
- Packing Keep it simple. You want your luggage to be light, so it is easy to move and handle. You may need extra room for meds and self care tools.
- Flying? Check your luggage, if you can afford it. You may need to bring things that won’t make it through security, medicines, lotions. It can make things easier.
- Plan ahead for the medicines and supplements you need to travel with Lyme Disease. At home I have a good system to make sure I take my meds, on the road can be less easy. Check on meds and supplements; bring what you need and make sure you have enough for the trip and several days when you return.
- Get a hotel room with a fridge to store things.
- Put up your meds ahead of time. It can be easy to forget something. Busy on a trip, you want meds to be easy on the go. Prepack them into bags that you can slip into a pocket or purse.
- If you use them put up tinctures into 1 ounce bottles and carry on the plane. Bubble wrap the bottles and put them into a quart plastic bag in your carry on and in your checked bag to be sure they reach your destination.
- Bring the tools you use to stay well. On a plane bring a neck support pillow and a foot roller. If traveling by car, bring extra pillows a yoga mat and support materials.
- Keep your eating and sleeping routines regular as much as possible.
- Stick to 3 square a day and add as many vegetables as possible.
- Eat inflammatory foods it will catch up with you.
- If your nutrient density is going to be low, add some green powder that you make or buy to your bag and add it to meals.
- Sleep is fundamental to feeling your best.
