When you’re headed on an adventure, Pharmaca can help you get prepared! Read on to learn more about their recommendations for staying healthy when traveling here or abroad.
Immunizations & Consultations
Pharmaca offers immunizations and consultations for travel anywhere in the world. Call your pharmacy today to schedule an appointment for any of the following:
• Hepatitis A & B
• HPV (male/female)
• Tetanus/Diptheria/Pertussis (Tdap)
• Measles/Mumps/Rubella (MMR)
They also offer travel consultations, during which a pharmacist will help you identify the right health care solutions to make your trip a happy and healthy one. They’ll determine which vaccinations are required or recommended for your travel destination(s), and discuss remedies and best practices for staying healthy while you’re there.
At the end you’ll receive a complete report on your destination—including a detailed summary of the pharmacist’s recommendations, as well as safety and health considerations you may not be aware of. Once your vaccinations are complete, they’ll provide you with proof of immunizations, if necessary.
Don’t forget to plan ahead—call your pharmacy for prices and appointment availability.
Staying Healthy While You’re There
Here are a few of Pharmaca’s favorite natural ways to feel good and stay well while you’re traveling:
• Beat jet lag with an herbal sleep formula such as Natural Factors Tranquil Sleep or Pharmaca Melatonin
• Ease motion sickness with Psi Nausea Relief Acupressure Bands or The Ginger People Gin-Gins Chewy Ginger Candy
• Support normal digestion with an enzyme like Enzymedica Digest Gold or Integrative Therapeutics Similase
• Protect sun-exposed skin with a mineral sunblock like Sanitas Solar Block or MyChelle Sun Shield
• Boost immunity by keeping germs at bay with CleanWell Hand Sanitizer along with herbal support from WishGarden Kick-Ass Immune
Stock up on Prescriptions
Finally, if you have regular prescriptions you’ll need to fill while you’re away, don’t forget to refill ahead of time. You may also need to bring a copy of all personal prescriptions (including their generic names) and a note from your doctor about controlled substances and injectable medications you may be carrying with you. Don't forget to ask about travel-approved advance refills.
