With the adventures of travel and trying new types of food, the risk of eating something that causes gastroenteritis or traveler’s diarrhea increases. This “inflammation of the stomach” can be an unpleasant addition to anyone’s holiday, causing nausea, cramps, diarrhea, and vomiting. Even the most careful traveler can eat unhygienic food unawares and so it is especially important to keep yourself informed about prevention and treatment. Dr. Richard Saint Cyr’s article and accompanying slideshow about gastroenteritis provide basic information and suggestions for travel kit supplies to combat traveler’s diarrhea once you get sick.
