Best Business Travel Companions

Apple without a doubt is the best business travel companion for the young generation but how can we neglect the apple that has served as the best travel companion for several generations. Don’t get confused with Apple iPhone and Apple fruit.

 The modern businessmen are always on the road of work. They have to travel to several places, work for long hours, adapt themselves to different environments, but still cannot afford to get sick. With no time to eat and relax properly, it’s inconvincible for them to keep themselves away from the medicines.  But as we all know medicines cannot be relied upon every time for their side effects. Therefore, it becomes necessary for the discerning business travelers of modern era to move towards a naturally healthy way of life.

Business travelers are always short of time and forget many things to pack. In this article we are going to discuss about a few food-related treatments, which doesn’t require special space in your travel bags. I am talking of the foodstuffs which are easily available, inexpensive and easy to use. They can be highly beneficial for recovering as well as maintaining a healthy lifestyle even while you travel with no time for personal care. We all know an apple a day keeps the doctor away, so let’s check-out business travel companions other than apples.

Banana: For businessmen who travel frequently, bananas can be their best companions.  Let’s have a look at a few medicinal uses of bananas.

Constipation: It is one of the common situations that every frequent traveler faces on and off, if not regularly. Supplementing bananas in your diet can help you restore normal bowel action, without restoring to laxatives.

Hangover: Business meetings and cocktails often lead to hangovers. Banana milkshake with honey is the finest recipe to get rid of hangover quickly and re-energize your senses. Banana calms the stomach, milk re-hydrates the system and honey builds up the depleted sugar in blood.

Heartburn: It’s a challenge to get homemade food while on business travel. This may lead to problems like heartburn. Having a banana at least once a day when you are on business tour would help you in overcoming such health problems as it has natural antacid effect in the body.

Mosquito Bites: Mosquito bites are certainly unpredictable most of the times unless and until you are traveling in mosquito prone area and getting an insect bite cream is not always feasible at odd hours. Rub the affected area with the inside of a banana skin to reduce swelling and irritation.

Cinnamon: It is easily available worldwide and is renowned widely for its health benefits throughout Asia and Far East. Because of its antimicrobial action, it is widely used in recipes of desserts, tea, stews and toasts. Cinnamon is used as a first-aid for treating nausea and upset stomachs in Asian countries.

Gastronomical Problems: Cinnamon is a carminative that has been traditionally used to cure diarrhea and morning sickness. Mild abdominal discomforts are obvious during business trips, therefore having cinnamon tea in the morning can be both refreshing and good for health.

Urinary-tract infections: A study has shown that Cinnamon can suppress the cause of most urinary-tract infections, therefore whenever you go for a business trip take cinnamon along with you. Most of us are not comfortable enough to talk about such infections even with doctors, but they can hamper our health tremendously. It doesn’t matter how clean an office/public toilet seems to be, but since it is used by others as well it may lead to urinary-tract infections. Hence, cinnamon is an essential element of first aid box.

Pain: Cinnamon can be used as a pain-killer for its prostaglandin-inhibiting action. It is also used to cure arthritis.

Cold and Flu: Cinnamon is a traditional remedy for muscle aches and viral infections such as colds and flu.

Tomatoes: Tangy Tomatoes remind me of Spain’s Tomato Festival. Here let’s talk about them as invaluable travel companions.

Insect Bite: It helps to stop itching and swelling at the affected area of insect bite.

Odor: Most of us face this problem while traveling for long hours, especially in hot climate areas. A tomato water bath by adding two cups of tomato juice to warm water would dispel the entire bad odor due to excess perspiration and make you ready to face the heat again.
