6 WAYS TO TRAVEL WELL WITH YOUR GUT

2020-03-01T09:06:04-05:00

Photo on Unsplash By Allison Downing Jordan Traveling is hard on the gut. Can I get an amen on that? As a gut health therapist, all my research shows that pretty much everything about travel makes things hard on the gut, with bloating and constipation being the top two offenders. Occasionally, there are a few people who might tell you that traveling doesn’t affect their gut at all, but this experience is not common. Why? The four main behaviors that make travel hard on the body are 1) sitting for long periods of time (in a car or plane), 2) crossing [...]

WANDERLUST WITHIN

2020-03-01T09:06:11-05:00

Photo on Unsplash By Morella Devost Ah, the wanderlust that beckons Come. See. Taste. Touch.  Savor these things that are wonderful So different from home… And we accept the invitation In the search for a new adventure Or perhaps a new skill A touching of the thing that had been unknown Until now…   The tales of an ecosystem And the humans who carry her earth in their blood The revelations of history and place  That contrast with our own Showing us who we are more closely… How we react To wafts of strange scents Foreign streets and inscrutable words Lost [...]

TOP 10 REASONS WHY PACKING IS NOT MY FRIEND

2020-03-01T09:06:16-05:00

Photo by Arnel Hasanovic on Unsplash By Monica Brancheau I love to travel, but I hate to pack. Packing for me is about as bad as going to the dentist. It’s like having one of those nightmares where you realize you went to school with two different shoes on and wake up in a sweat, only to realize you aren’t in school anymore and you’re lying in bed. The stress, the anxiety, the uncertainty. The skill level needed to be an expert packer is résumé worthy. These are my top 10 reasons I hate packing (in no particular order): How on [...]

TRAVELING THROUGH TRANSITIONS

2020-03-01T09:06:23-05:00

Whether at the end of a tunnel, through a crack in the door, or the flash of an idea, it is always there, heralding a new beginning.” ~Theresa Tsalaky One thing that life does not spare for any of us are transitions. Existing as a human on this beautiful planet of ours means that inevitably and intermittently, we’ll experience changes in our lives. These changes may come as a gentle pull forward or a sudden, harsh push. Regardless of whether or not we care to travel [...]

STAY HEALTHY ON VACATION

2020-03-01T09:06:30-05:00

Photo by Li Fei on Unsplash By Lisa Profera MD No one wants to get sick on vacation. Planning ahead and being proactive is the key to minimizing that risk. Staying healthy on vacation starts weeks before your trip begins. Whether you’re traveling within the continental US or further away, it’s wise to check the latest travel recommendations and alerts posted on the Centers for Disease Control website: www.cdc.gov/travel. Certain vaccines are recommended or required for travel to or from remote areas, so you may need to see a doctor or even visit a travel clinic weeks in advance of your [...]

A DISCOVERY IN TUSCANY

2020-03-01T09:06:37-05:00

Photo by Giuseppe Mondi on Unsplash By Marilyn Pellini “Sure enough, there it is!” She shouted, so proud of their find. The four weary travelers tumbled out of their rental car and exuberantly began snapping pictures of their discovery.  My cousin Barbara was always an avid traveler. She would drag her husband to far-off places, or go with her friends on river cruises to Red Hat Society conventions, and she adored sailing the Caribbean. Here is a story she related about following a travel dream. A year earlier, Barbara and a friend found that they were enthralled with visiting Tuscany after [...]
