The Revolution: Jewel’s Health Secrets
As a new mom and frequent traveler, Jewel has learned a lot about how to stay healthy, and she shared some of her advice on The Revolution. She shared a bunch of herbal supplements that she takes to improve her health… and nothing is better than some classic Home Remedies.
Jewel Petroleum Jelly
Jewel said singers have to stay healthy because they need a clear voice when they perform. Also, as a new mother, she wants to avoid passing germs to her baby. “Keeping your nasal passages moist is really important. It’s one of your first lines of defense,” Jewel said.
Dr. Jennifer Ashton said the nose humidifies, moisturizes, and cleans air before it reaches the long. Travel, weather, and even medication can dry out the nose, which processes 20,000 liters of air daily.
Jewel said air travel often makes her nose dry. She uses a Q tip to apply petroleum jelly to the inside of her nose.
The Revolution: Jewel Lanolin for Nursing
Jewel also recommended Lanolin for nursing mothers. This can be applied to the breasts for comfort and moisture.
The Revolution: Saline Spray
You can use a saline spray or even steam to keep your nose healthy.
Jewel said she keeps a humidifier in her room. Read more about Using A Humidifier.
The Revolution: Cordyceps & Rhodiola
Jewel said caffeine robs you of energy, but there are supplements on the market that cna help you get it back. Cordyceps is a Chinese fungal treatment used to fight fatigue.

Jewel also suggested the herbal supplement Rhodiola. Jewel said these products are “calming and at the same time energizing.”
Cordyceps & Rhodiola Pregnancy Warning
Dr. Jennifer said these products can have powerful effects, which carry both risks and benefits. She said you should tell your health provider if you’re taking anything over the counter.
Cordyceps & Rhodiola are not safe for use by pregnant women, and Dr. Jennifer said supplements are not studied by the Food & Drug Administration.
