How Not To Get Sick When Traveling Abroad

by on Jul.27, 2015, under Travel

Avoid Local Water

I am sure you have heard that bit of advice so many times it not funny. It used to be a standard warning for anyone going to Central America or Mexico. Truth be told the warning was equally given to those from that region going to America or Europe. Each part of the world has their own unique germs, so it is relatively easy to get ill while traveling. Compound the possibility of exposure to germs in the close confines of an airplane and some sort of illness is inevitable. On the other side the more frequent that you travel the more your body will build up a tolerance, also these illness may made you feel bad but are seldom serious. If in doubt by all means seek medical attention.

Don’t Let Sickness Wreck Your Trip

Getting sick will ruin your vacation or business trip. A good way to avoid getting ill is to drink plenty of clean bottled water. When you are dehydrated, your body is weak and prone to headaches and sickness. Try to drink at least 2 liters a day and 4-5 if the weather is humid and hot. This is easy to do and can be a lifesaver during your holiday or business trip. Try to limit your alcohol and caffeine intake as they can increase the effects of dehydration and make you go to the bathroom more.

The best way to recover if you fall ill abroad is to get some rest. Although you will not want to sleep your holiday away, taking some nap time will help your body feel stronger. Have a lie down after your dinner and maybe read a book on the balcony or by the pool. Indoor activities such as spa treatments or gentle exercise may help to distract your mind from the sickness. Obviously, take it easy and do not do anything to strenuous.

The Best Way To Protect Yourself

The best defense against illness is to limit some of your exposure to the thing which causes it. Avoid water as much as possible unless necessary and when you land stock up on fluids. The cabin air in a airplane is dry, and can cause dehydration. Try to get a good nights sleep before your trip. Lack of sleep and the stress of travelling can lower your immune system. Temperatures inside a plane can be chilly so make sure to have warm clothes on board. Keep a bottle of water handy, a small bottle of hand sanitizer, stretch you legs, take a multivitamin and moisturise regularly during flights.

If you are feeling ill then get to a pharmacy to get some remedies quick. Getting some over the counter help at the first signs of illness can stop it ruining your holiday. Carrying a travellers first aid kit is a wise idea and packing it with some hand sanitizer, Imodium, antihistamines, insect repellent, lozenges and ginger candies for motion sickness is recommended.. This small kit would only cost a few dollars to pit together and save you from having to visit a doctor abroad. few remedies can save you a lot of disappointment

On arrival in your destination country, try to take it easy when sampling the local foods. Jumping in gives your system no time to adapt. If you do become ill, stay in bed and rest.
