Jet lag is essentially a condition of excess vata in the body. Traveling on a jet at a tremendous speed induces a light, mobile, and spacy quality in the system, which aggravates vata. To prevent jet lag, Ayurveda suggests the following three-part strategy:
An hour before flying, swallow 2 capsules (00 size) of ginger, with a cup of water.
While on the plane, drink at least 2 to 3 cups of water, at intervals of 1 to 2 hours. Flying creates a slight dehydra?tion of the body, which can be cor?rected by drinking sufficient liquid. Dehydration increases vata. Don't drink coffee or any other caffeinated beverage; caffeine also provokes vata.
When you reach your destination, rub a little warm sesame oil on your scalp and on the soles of your feet. Also, drink 1 cup of hot milk with a pinch each of nut?meg and ginger. These two simple actions will help pacify vata.
