Helpful Herbs (& Booze) for Travel
Here's a statistic to dampen even the most adventurous spirit: Half the travelers from a developed country who stay for a month or longer in a developing country will get sick. The most common malady is diarrhea, but ironically, fear of diarrhea leads many travelers to overcompensate by eating nothing but bread, which in turn leaves them vulnerable to constipation. So be sure to take both these digestive remedies with you on your next trip: A slippery elm/blackberry root tincture for diarrhea and some fig and yellow dock syrup for anti-constipation. You'll be glad you did!
