||Jet lag is a complex
condition which occurs when flying long distances. The
main, but not the only cause, is crossing time zones,
which causes circadian dysrhythmia. Other causes are
dehydration and problems from pressurized cabins (pressure
equivalent to 8,000 feet), lack of fresh air, lack of
exercise and loss of quality sleep.
||One tablet of No Jet-Lag should
be taken at the time of each takeoff, another every two
hours in flight, and another after each landing (including
at intermediate stops). During long flights, the two-hour
intervals may be extended if the user is sleeping.
|Warnings and Precautions
||No Jet-Lag can be used by travellers
of all ages. If a user already suffers from a major medical
problem, normal caution should be exercised in flying
on long journeys. If after arrival the symptoms of jet
lag continue, professional help should be sought. No
Jet-Lag does not counter the effects of existing medical
disorders when travelling by air, or the effects of alcohol
or general exhaustion.
||If possible flying while pregnant
should be avoided. Pregnancy creates extra fluid and
changes to this extra fluid while flying can make the
pregnant traveller uncomfortable. Reports from pregnant
travellers suggest these changes can be so severe they
think something major is wrong and sometimes it is. Because
of the very small concentration of ingredients in No
Jet-Lag it is safe to use while pregnant when flying
|Dosage for Children
||Children under three years do not
suffer from jet lag, but they need plenty of fluid frequently
to reduce dehydration. Irritability is one of the leading
symptoms of jet lag and for children aged between 4-12
years one tablet every four hours is suitable.
||No Jet-Lag may be taken with any
other medication. Like other homeopathic remedies, No
Jet-Lag is most effective when taken separately from
food and drink, but has been specially formulated so
that it may if necessary be taken in association with
food and/or drink, i.e. coffee.
||With the minute doses involved there
is little possibility of adverse effects. There has never
been any recorded adverse effect from homeopathic remedies
above 12C. All remedies used in No Jet-Lag are 30C, well
above the 12C limit.
||Should you take more No Jet-Lag
than recommended, no harmful side effects should be expected,
owing to the minute dilutions of active ingredients employed
in homeopathic preparations.
|X-rays, Coffee, Mint
and Homeopathic Products
||Some poorly manufactured homeopathic
products are harmed by exposure to x-rays, coffee or
aromatic products like mint. No Jet-Lag does not fit
into this category. It has been robustly manufactured
to ensure that it is effective when exposed to either
x-rays or coffee or mint.
