Jet lag, medically referred to as desynchronosis, is a physiological condition which results from alterations to the body’s circadian rhythms. Jetlag it is classified as one of the circadian rhythm sleep disorders. Jet lag results from rapid long-distance transmeridian (east–west or west–east) travel, as on a jet plane. The condition of jet lag may last several days, and a recovery rate of one day per time zone crossed is a fair guideline. Source: Wikipedia. Find the best jet lag tips and how to avoid jet lag

    Good marks for trying to make sense of the problem, and I say problem with aplomb considering Cephalon wanted the FDA to designate jet lag as an illness so they could peddle the “cure”.

    However a few things to consider before rushing off to implement any of these suggestions.

    Globalization is upon us!
    Big business makes the Aviation world go round. Most of these fliers fly repeatedly year round. Using melatonin or any other drugs is a loosing game as tolerance are soon developed. Safer using 5HTP a precursor in the chain to making Melatonin.
    P.S. Melatonin use can damage your health and leave you with a host of symptoms http://www.melatonin.com/melatonin-cautions.php

    Lifestyle Issues
    The Argone Institute diet is fine on paper but not practical. A lot of people don’t have the inclination (on pain of Jet Lag) to stick to the diet while living busy lives.

    Jet lag needs a new conversation, one which revolves around healthy solution. No alcohol 3-4 hrs before a flight is a good start, but what about no alcohol in-flight…..sorry, needs to be said people.

    Good enough tips for the infrequent flier, but who is that nowadays?

    Someone just posted a link to this on my travel forum. As a frequent traveller I have always been hounded by jetlag. It regularly takes me up to five days to adjust when flying to and from Thailand or Japan. The diet in particular mentioned here really sounds interesting – thanks, I’ll give it a go for my next flight.
