When you board a plane, you assume that the pilot is always perfectly educated, trained and healthy in order to guarantee a safe flight. However, pilots are people too, and they also have their good days and bad days. They also suffer under allergies, headache, influenza, sleeping problems and more – not to talk about more serious health problems such as high blood pressure or even diabetes.
Like the general population, pilots too must take medications, and here is where potential problems start. Many medications influence our mood and physical or mental ability to perform our normal duties. It is widely known that driving a car or operating specific engines is not recommended or permitted when taking some prescription or non-prescription drugs. This very much applies to operating an airplane.
Of course, every private or commercial pilot must undergo a thorough aeromedical exam every six months (for airline pilots), every 12 months (for other commercial pilots) and every 24 months (for every private pilot). If a pilot does not pass this medical examination, his or her pilot’s license is automatically void. Interestingly, the duration of a pilot license depends heavily on the renewal of the aeromedical examination. It happens every day that pilots must quit their jobs – or ( as private pilots) stop flying – immediately if their “medical” is not renewed. Most pilots are terribly afraid of that.
The FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) has determined a long list of drugs not compatible with operating an airplane. This poses a serious threat to pilots who suffer under specific medical problems and must take “not allowed” medications as described by the FAA. The only helpful solution for such problems is to search for alternative treatments not conflicting with the FAA requirements. Not many are really successful.
As discovered during the latest conference by one of the world’s leading manufacturers of homeopathic drugs this week in Albuquerque (NM), only rarely natural, low-dosage homeopathic drugs are considered as an alternative to standard drugs, which are usually associated with often very serious and dangerous side-effects.
Though not always a viable alternative to all standard medications (there is no such thing as one size fits them all), Heel offers a variety of very effective, mostly plant-based, low-dosage medications with virtually no side-effects at all. Among them are painkillers (Traumeel and Zeel), allergy relief drugs (Adrisin), sinus and nasal congestion treatments (Sinusin) or sleeplessness (Neurexan).
Heel medicines are designed to achieve the best healing power possible. These medications are made of several different natural substances, mostly homeopathically prepared.
Homeopthic therapy system supports a multi-target regulation of disease processes. Instead of suppressing the symptoms, it is designed to put the body back into its biological balance.
