My colleague, Dr. Margo, shares an experience new to air travel. While remedies are usually not inactivated by going through the screening, they certainly can be. Most of us have educated TSA personnel when we ask to have them hand carry our remedy box. Maybe no longer——-
“I am at the airport in Boston as I type and for 20 years I have been able to talk to TSA about Homeopathy and why I did not want my remedies radiated or magnetized. they have let me get my remedies hand checked for all those years with a professional explanation. [this time] the supervisor would not even listen to explanation even when many of the workers knew about the safety of the kits. He kept saying I do not believe anything you are saying. Unless you have a printed..VALID sticker that says do not radiate from a valid company like Raytheon I do not believe you.”
The lesson here is to take merely a few remedies with you, in small containers and be willing for them to go through the scan if they hassle you.
Additional note: jellies and jams are considered in the “liquids/gels” category. When leaving Kauai with specifically requested guava jelly, TSA would not let me through, even though they were commercially made and unopened. I never thought about gifts of jelly not being allowed.
