Where Does Jet Lag Come From and What Can I Do About It?

Where Does Jet Lag Come From and What Can I Do About It?

Maybe you love to fly to faraway places and exciting new destinations. Or perhaps you travel for work, hopping around from time zone to time zone to meet with clients or manage employee teams.

Either way, long-distance travel can leave even seasoned adventurers with jet lag. More than just an inconvenience, jet lag can put a real drag on your feeling of wellness and your quality of life, especially if you fly often.

Fortunately, you don’t have to put up with the negative aftereffects of jet lag. At Living Waters Regenerative Medicine Center in Gulf Breeze, Florida, primary care physician Deborah D. Viglione, MD, offers patients innovative intravenous (IV) therapy as a treatment for jet lag.

Before you pack your bags for your next trip, read this helpful information about where jet lag comes from and what you can do about it.

Symptoms that disrupt your sleep, and more

Jet lag is the name for a set of symptoms that can occur when you fly across multiple time zones. Because of the speed of today’s air travel, your brain and your body take longer than your wristwatch to adjust to time changes.

In other words, jet lag happens when your body’s own internal clock reads differently than the clock in the time zone where you’ve landed.

Generally, jet lag tends to be worse when you cross at least two time zones flying in an eastward direction. But individuals differ in their sensitivity to time changes, and what bothers one person may not bother another.

Jet lag can have a big impact on your sleep, preventing you from getting the rest you need and contributing to insomnia, early waking, or trouble staying asleep during the night. In addition, it can cause one or more of the following symptoms:

By taking some simple steps, you can alleviate jet lag symptoms or prevent them before they take a toll on your sense of wellness.

Managing jet lag

Some people have luck managing jet lag by drinking plenty of water, exposing themselves to sunlight, staying on a strict sleep schedule, and taking melatonin supplements.

Although these remedies certainly may help, Dr. Viglione has found that IV therapy can offer a faster, more effective way to prevent or alleviate jet lag symptoms. 

IV therapy efficiently delivers a personalized mixture of fluids, vitamins, minerals, ozone, or other natural ingredients and nutrients directly into your bloodstream. Dr. Viglione customizes your “cocktail” of IV fluids to replenish your body with whatever you need and wash away your jet lag symptoms. 

This simple in-office treatment restores balance in your mind and body, paving the way for you to feel your best and speed your recovery after your travels.
