Troubles with Travelers Tummy
We all love to travel, visit exotic parts of our world and get ourselves in to various adventures. Every part of the world, every continent, every country, and sometimes every city has its own signature cuisine. It is always fun to try something new and exotic, something that you didn’t even know that could be used as food, but as much as we love it, the look of it, the taste of it, sometimes our stomach just can’t stand it.
A great number of people nowadays suffer from all kinds of different allergies due to our overly clean and sanitized everyday life. Sadly, the number of those people is increasing all the time. Food allergies are not that common, but if you have one, then you really need to be careful where you are traveling and what you eat there.
First of all, you need to check if you have any allergies. If you like to travel and visit the far ends of the world, this is a must do. You may have never had any bad reaction to food, but you never know what is going to happen when you try to eat a live octopus, worm salad, roasted scorpion or any kind of herb, ingredient or spice that you have never tried before. It is a shock for your organism, when you ingest something that it had never experienced before.
What causes the problem?
The reason the so called “traveler’s tummy” happens is bacteria that every locally grown food carries. Each kind of food has its own good bacteria and every local individual’s organism got used to it over the years of living in that particular area. It is not only the food, it is water, too. The safest way is to stick to bottled water. Seafood and various spices are the most dangerous and should be consumed with care. Always do your research before you travel to a exotic locations.
How to avoid these problems?
Out of precaution, take only fresh food. Fruits and vegetables from local markets are always good, after they have been properly washed. This might sound silly, but always wash your hands before every meal. Also, try to ingest as much protein as you can, and liquids too, preferably water. If it comes to actual food poisoning or merely a stomachache, and you manage to come back home safely, it is a good idea to detox your organism with skinny tea. Its ingredients act as anti-inflammatory, anti-infective, antioxidant, lymph system cleansers. It will clear you organism as if you had never ingested anything off-the-beaten-track at all.
A wise move in general, and not just in case of food poisoning and food allergies, is to prepare everything on paper in the local language, before you set for your trip. Everything regarding your health should be translated into the language of your destination, and if some food items are a particular problem, don’t shy away from typing instructions out for waiters and chefs to understand.
Just planning ahead and preparing ahead of time is all you need for an uneventful yet pleasant trip. You do that part properly, and you’ll come home safely from each one of your adventures, without any problems and without traveler’s tummy ruining the trip.
