DURHAM, N.C., July 24, 2018 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Has jet lag ever hampered the first few days of your vacation? Or has motion sickness spoiled what was to be a gorgeous boat trip to faraway lands? Travel-related disorders, such as high-altitude sickness, motion sickness and jet lag, are very common; with appropriate preparation, however, they can be prevented or at least easily managed.

Melatonin supplements, for example, can help you quickly reset your body clock when you land in a new country. Similarly, simply closing your eyes or looking at objects at a distance can alleviate symptoms of seasickness. DAN Boater has compiled useful tips such as these into a new guide designed to help boaters and travelers learn how to prevent and manage travel-related disorders.

The association's newest guide, titled 4 Common Travel Disorders and How to Manage Them, provides tips and professional guidance on travel-related illnesses, convering questions such as:

  • Want to learn how to combat jet lag on your next trip?
  • Are long-distance boaters at risk for DVT?
  • Know someone who suffers from motion sickness when they travel?
  • Could high altitude illness be a factor on your mountain climbing trip? 

DAN Boater is committed to helping recreational boaters and global travelers in need of emergency assistance — on land and sea — and to promoting smart travel health and safety practices through research and education. The association's blog is also a useful resource for other travel health and safety tips.

DAN Boater Is a Trusted Name

Established in 1980, DAN has worked tirelessly to promote best health and safety practices throughout the scuba diving industry. In 2015 the organization expanded its medical emergency and travel safety expertise into the recreational boating industry with a new boater-focused membership called DAN Boater. Since its inception, the association has been involved in more than 10,000 emergency medical evacuations and performed more than 300,000 hours of medical duty, making it one of the most trusted resources for travel-related injuries and illnesses.

A Must-Have Guide for Travelers

After spending months planning a vacation that will cost you hundreds or thousands of dollars, you want your trip to be a memorable one. The process of getting from one place to another can be uncomfortable, however, especially if you haven't done thorough research and prepared yourself beforehand. DAN Boater has done a lot of that research for travelers around the globe.

Based on DAN Boater's firsthand knowledge of travel-related medical emergencies, this new guide is a must-have for world travelers, novice and experienced alike.
