Jet Lag

Callthephysician.com offers advice and treatment to travellers who may be suffering from jet lag.

Jet Lag after travel.Clients who travel from one continent to another for holidays or business do sometimes experience some disturbance in the body’s clock rhythm.

The symptoms get worse the larger the time difference between the country of origin and the country of destination, and the greater the benefit of treatment.

Our bodies naturally overcome this disturbance in the rhythm (known as ‘jet lag’) but the aim of treatment is to speed up the recovery time, allowing the traveller to enjoy their holiday or business trip.

The Pineal gland in the brain produces a certain hormone called MELATONIN. This hormone is released by the pineal gland as the eyes register the fall of darkness, and this helps to regulate our sleep-wake cycles normally.

The treatment for this condition is based on the administration of the tablet form of this hormone produced, which helps the body to adapt to the new environment quicker allowing you to enjoy your holiday or business trip.
