Get the most out of your trip to Asia and India means staying healthy without throwing up over the side of a slow boat. The Lonely Planet Healthy Travel Guide to Asia and India is freshly updated by travel health expert Dr Tony Gherardin and provides advice on immunizations, medical kits, and what to do if you start to feel queasy.
Tailored advice for travelers of all ages and needs, the compact guide fits in a small pocket so you can carry it with you throughout your journey. There is clear advice on treating common travel illnesses possible when traveling throughout the third world in Asia and India. You’ll find safety tips for outdoor activities, including diving and high-altitude trekking. A section on traditional Asian medicine might come in handy if you’re high in Tibet and there isn’t an American-style M.D. anywhere in the neighborhood.
A comprehensive first-aid section would help for minor scraps, diarrhoea, burns, and wounds as well as more serious injuries such as broken bones, infection, head and back injuries, and internal injuries. Over 400 pages in a five-inch book, the Lonely Planet Healthy Guide to Asia and India is loaded with additional advice on safe water, eating native diets, intestional problems, indigenous diseases, influenza, bug bites and stings, and there is even advice for traveling with seniors and children and gender specific medical information too.
