A Guest Post by Kylie Bevan, Health & Relocation Coach
Vacation thoughts are usually of warm sun-kissed skin, or making fresh tracks in powdery snow, or sipping a cocktail while watching the sunset, or the amazing view at the top of a mountain – and rightly so!
By packing a healthy travel toolkit, you’ve a better chance of your holiday imaginings coming true. Much better than wrapped around a toilet, or hoping the local doctor speaks your language, or spending hours trying to find a pharmacy miles from your accommodation.
Depending on your intended location, consider packing:
DO consider vaccinations before departure if travelling to a developing country.
DON’T delay getting medical advice for concerning illness just because you are unfamiliar with the location.
DO treat mosquito-borne and poor-food-and-water-borne diseases with respect by doing what you can to reduce the possibility.
DO take care with animals such as dogs and monkeys, as they may carry disease in developing countries.
DO take into account that sexually transmitted diseases are worldwide.
DO consider accidents and injuries while crossing roads, travelling in local transport, riding motorbikes and drinking alcohol – especially in countries that don’t have strict driving-under-the-influence penalties in place.
DO boost immunity and recovery with natural diet and remedies. For example, the age-old remedies of garlic, citrus and horseradish for colds, flu and seasonal allergies.
Wishing you a wonderfully healthy and happy holiday!
