Airport A.I.D.S and how to prevent it!

My son came home with what he calls "Airport AIDS". I guess that is the new term for the airplane sickness many people get after flying. It feels like a cold or flu such as chills, fever, body aches, nasal and lung congestion, cough, mucous. I had it too recently after coming back from a conference in Europe. Had I thought about it earlier I would have preloaded with a Traditional Chinese Medicine Formula called "Jade Wind Screen." It is a warming tonic that has the adaptogen Astragalis in it. Adaptogens help regulate and boost the body's immune system. It is also known as Yu Ping Feng San.That is the pin yin name. It is something you can get from your Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioner and acupuncturist. Most herbal formulas are prescribed individually and specifically. So this formula may not be right for you..But if you tend to feel a little cold in the fall and are susceptible to colds and flu this formula might be for you. Take it for about a week before you fly and prevent the possibility of "Airport Aids!"
