New app to end jet lag

Every day jet lag effects on average 500,000 passengers on 3,500+ long haul flights crossing multiple time zones. Jet lag symptoms include insomnia, disrupted sleep, fatigue, headaches, and digestive problems with no effective solution until today.

Uplift is safe, easy and effective providing relief with a patent pending system to reset your internal body clock in less than 10 minutes using a unique acupressure formula developed by Dr. Charles Krebs. Users input their travel information and the app calculates a specialized solution that is applied by following the app instructions and videos.

Krebs is the global expert in neuroscience and acupressure who developed this solution. With over 30 years’ experience; his vision with Uplift is “To create more joy and function in the travel experience”

After a near fatal scuba diving accident in Australia left him paralyzed from the waist down with his in-depth knowledge of anatomy, physiology and kinesiology he learned to walk again. This initiated a scientific journey of research and teaching that continues to this day.

I had to get off the plane after long intercontinental trips and be able to make complex presentations on neurology.” Says Krebs. Jet lag was impacting my performance, so I used my in-depth knowledge of neurology, physiology, and acupressure to develop this solution to resynchronize the internal body clock.

International health insurance can be quite essential and the consideration in it has never ever been greater. As social medical insurance services are stressed to take care of the rising costs of hospital treatment, the requirement to make other preparations is becoming very essential, specifically to the expatriate.

For individuals who live and work overseas, the necessity to access the proper type of cover can make to be an upsetting experience with the expense of treatment usually being very costly and challenging to set up particularly during periods of catastrophe. There are lots of companies that provide a number of rewards that provide reassurance for you, your loved ones and your employees.

Nevertheless, these kinds of insurance have restricted coverage that isn’t pertinent on a specific scenario. The specific situation what I’m saying is at this point is when you choose to reside in another nation. Sure, you’ve got life insurance coverage or medical insurance. However these are only applied inside the limitations of your country.

Therefore if anything happens to you right out of the country, this insurance coverage cannot assist you in in any manner. Same thing complements travel insurance policies. But they may be applied abroad, the claim is just restricted up to specific extent for example medical evacuation, trip cancellation, and trip delays. Continue Reading

How to deal with your Hemorrhoids while on Travel

Hemorrhoids are swollen anal varicose veins. These veins can become so stretch that they push with extreme force, then rupture and bleed. The hemorrhoids cause rectal bleeding, pain, burning, inflammation, irritation and itching, since the swollen tissues are difficult to keep clean.

There are several potential causes of hemorrhoids. The most typical causes include excessive straining during a bowel movement, aging, pregnancy, chronic diarrhea, chronic constipation, and anal intercourse.

One of the best treatments a person can use to get relief from hemorrhoids is to soak in a tub of warm water for approximately ten minutes. Nothing should be added to the water while soaking.
