Diarrhea Prevention

Travelers’ diarrhea is the most common illness affecting international travelers. The symptom is so well known that it has earned many nicknames, including “Montezuma’s Revenge”, “Pharaoh’s Revenge,” and “Delhi Belly”. Recent studies show up to 70 percent of travelers will come down with diarrhea symptoms during their trip.

Often, travelers’ diarrhea is not an illness. It is usually a symptom of infection like food poisoning or e. Coli. The best way to avoid travelers’ diarrhea is to avoid these diseases.

About Our Services

A bit about us

Just like you and so many others in general practice we found ourselves struggling to provide good care patients who travel. It never seemed to have enough time to provide quality care and stay on schedule. If you’ve ever felt like you’ve tried it all and nothing works, you are not alone.

“I will let my mum know about this, she could really make use of the medical service here! We’re loving it. We were treated like royalty.”
