Preparing Your Body For Your Adventure Holiday

by Lonnie Bryant

If you are planning on going on an extended adventure holiday such as trekking across the Antarctic or through the jungles of South America, it is vital that you ensure that your body is fully prepared. Below is a guide which will help you to make sure you are in peak condition before you set off.

Visit the dentist

Even if you believe your teeth to be in good shape, you should always visit your local dentist before setting off on your adventure holiday. While you may not be experiencing any pain, your teeth or gums may be developing a problem which will eventually cause you discomfort. If you get a toothache in the middle of a jungle or on an Antarctic ice shelf, there will not be a dentist around who can provide treatment. Your local dentist will assess the condition of your teeth and gums and will carry out any necessary dental work to fill any cavities and to remove any tartar which has built up between your teeth. Your dentist may also recommend that you use mouthwash or change your brushing technique, in order to address any signs of gum disease. Book an appointment with your dentist today.

Get some exercise

As the name suggests, adventure holidays are not about relaxing at the side of a swimming pool while enjoying a cold beer. While there will be time to relax at the end of the trip and during rest days, you will spend many days being active and on the move. If you are a little out of shape, you should do some exercise before your holiday so the physical activity will not tire you out. You do not need to overdo it. Some long walks or regular jogging around your local neighbourhood will help to improve your cardio health and will help you to build muscle mass.

Visit your doctor

Finally, you should book an appointment with your local GP. You should inform your GP of your travel plans, and they will be able to advise you about any vaccinations you require. They may also recommend sunscreen and lip balms which will help to protect your skin and mouth while you are out in the wilderness. They will also assess your general health to check that you are fit enough to complete your adventure holiday.

Once you have completed these tasks, you can get set for the holiday of a lifetime.  


About Me

Braces versus Retainers: A Comprehensive Overveiw

There are more than two ways to straighten a smile, and in this blog, I plan to discuss them all. I plan to look at the differences between braces and retainers and explain why sometimes you may need them both. I look at the differences in cost, time commitment and efficacy. Personally, I have had a bit of experience with this subject – I had braces as a young teen, and I had a permanent retainer. In this blog, I discuss what I have learned, and I present all kinds of new information on the topic. Whether you are trying to make decisions for yourself or your child. I hope you find this information useful.
