{WELL ON THE ROAD} Dr. Andréa Paige

Most recently in: Amsterdam and Bali

The one snack you can always find in my carry on is: WATER!

Tell us your in-flight ritual: 1 liter of water per hour for long haul flights, making sure to get up every hour to urinate or else I consider myself dehydrated + my lymphatic system sluggish! Also inflight you'll find me doing squats in the back of the plane, which pumps the lymphatic system. Sitting for extended hours on a plane paired with dehydration creates massive jet lag. 

How do you conquer jet lag once you've arrived? I've mastered preventing jet-lag after a dozen years of cross-continental flights. As I water-fast inflight and move every hour, my body acclimates so much faster.

Describe your workout on the road style: Ohhh Yeaaa.. Well, if I'm not feeling motivated, I'll always pop on some HOT dance tracks and groove to the beat for a song or two. By the time my blood is flowing freely, I'll hop on my mat and do my morning Ashtanga Yoga Primary & Intermediate Series practice. It's really an honor to be with myself in this way, daily!

How do you keep sickness at bay? I regularly BOOST my immune system (clinically proven!) by fasting! Yes - you heard me... fasting! I go for certain periods of time without eating solid, fibrous matter. (The human body and THRIVE & SURVIVE 40-50 days on water alone!) I do regular juice cleanses. I also make sure to always stay hydrated, get enough sleep at proper hours and infuse my diet with mostly all fruits & vegetables!

What's your 'go-to' restaurant item when traveling? Does the grocery store produce section count?

What do you do to stay grounded? Imagine a nail through the top of my foot into K1 - Kidney one point on the bottom of my foot between the big toe mounds. My Chinese Medicine Reflexology practice is one of the fastest ways to change my energetics.

What is your preferred method of staying connected with loved ones? FaceTime! Really - I talk to my mother at least once every 24 hours. It just creates connection + thus freedom for everyone! We are always near... no matter how far.

Splitting her time between Amsterdam and the world, Dr. Andrea Paige can be found teaching workshops and trainings in the fields of yoga, energy work, and nutrition and fasting. Follow her adventures online via video on Facebook and Instagram.
