Busy business travelers are better served by planning for a successful business trip than by trying to figure out the right sleep-schedule to avert the fatigue of jet lag.
Melatonin is by far the most common remedy for jet lag, but can is it the best choice? Melatonin is a natural remedy hormone produced by the body based on cycles of exposure to light and dark. Melatonin is by far the most common solution to jet lag, but given the equivocal data on its efficacy and the difficulty in determining how it should be administered, melatonin enjoys far more popularity than is warranted.
The homeopathic approach has documented results that are favorable. Further study may reveal something unknown. Sometimes strong reactions are intended in homeopathic remedies that can be quite unsavory. That said, the mechanism for homeopathically remedying jet lag do not seem to produce such reactions. Still, if one prefers not to ingest medication of any kind, then the homeopathic approach won't work.
Busy travelers will take comfort in knowing that beating jet lag can be as easy as pushing a button. The Jet Lag Freedom approach to jet lag relies on the over 2000 year old principles of Chinese Meridian Theory to balance the body. How? The secret lies in the Chinese circadian clock, which can be manipulated to reset the internal body clock to the time of the arrival destination. No medications, no side-effects and no need to try to adjust sleep patterns before departure. Who would have known that travel could be so easy?
