there are no universal recipes for a good health while travelling - what works for one might not work for somebody else.

Conventional medicine so far did not come up with any solution to jet lag and body just can't adjust it's internal clock at a short time.

I mentioned before an airline pilot I have spoken to recently - even now, after many years of intercontinental flights, he still suffers from jet lag. Pilots nowdays are allowed to have a short nap during the flight - there are always two of them in the cockpit - it's better than getting tired and making mistakes.

Myself I am not medically trained and I do not diagnose.

i Have been a shift worker all my life and my body-clock is constantly in a state of confusion, i do suffer from jet lag but i usually get over it after just a day or two. The only thing that seems to happen is i wake up extremely early on the first day.

I use to do shift work and night work (in hotels) for years without any breaks - one day I had enough, quit the job and went on a long holiday in an oriental country.

As a rule of thumb - average traveller suffers from jet lag the number of days corresponding to time zones (ie 6 hours/ 6days). Arriving to your destination in the late afternoon/an early evening allows to chill out and have a good night rest.
