How to Avoid Bali Belly and Other Travel Bugs

Anyone who has been to Bali is probably quite familiar with the scenario of volcanic belly aches and one too many trips to the bathroom. One minute you're having fun in the sun with friends or family. The next moment you're latched to the loo, with only hot and cold sweats and tummy troubles for company. While traveller's diarrhoea can happen all over the world, it is extremely common when visiting developing countries. Whether it's Bali belly or Dehli belly, swapping sightseeing for stomach suffering is nobody's idea of a good holiday! 

Read these 5 easy ways to avoid turning your trip into one only between the hotel bed and bathroom. 

1. Drink Bottled Water

It's important to avoid tap water in places that are still developing like Bali. Even though locals may consume it, the bacteria in the water can distress our digestive systems. Try to drink bottled or filtered water, including when brushing your teeth or having ice cubes in your drinks. Cafes, bars and other venues may still use tap water for ice, so it may be best to avoid asking for them in your drinks altogether. While your sundowner cocktail may seem more refreshing those extra ice cubes. It won't make you look any Kuta if you're regularly running to the loo! 

2. Be Mindful of What You're Eating

Reduce your risk of Bali belly and other bugs by avoiding raw or undercooked meat and cooked food that has been sitting out at room temperature. While the street food is dirt cheap and ready to eat, it often comes with another kind of price. You and your tummy are better off eating at reputable places that have obvious standards in food hygiene and safety. You may also want to be cautious about eating raw veggies and fruits that can't be peeled as they may have been rinsed in local water.

3. Remember To Wash Your Hands

To avoid spreading or catching germs and illness, remember to always wash your hands before you eat and after going to the bathroom. It may also be smart to keep a small bottle of hand sanitiser on hand, literally! 

4. Keep Hydrated 

Keeping up your water intake and avoiding dehydration is vital to keeping things moving along in your body. With warmer weather, it's important to replenish and rehydrate consistently. If your hotel or Airbnb doesn't provide safe water. Try stocking up on a few litres bottled water so it's always on hand when you need.

5. Keep Your Gut and Tummy Clean with Love Your Gut Powder.
