Going to India and Thailand means possibilities of all kinds of disease. I need to be prepared.
Is it that I am a highly allergic, food sensitive, obsessively compulsive healthy eater or is it that I have travelled a lot and know what I need? Two years ago I climbed Mount Kilimanjaro and last year I trekked through the lower Himalayas of Nepal. As for supplements, my nutritionist/holistic health guru Sally Kravich has given me so much good counsel to keep myself healthy on these trips that on this one I already know what to bring. As for food, aside from the fact that I could become deathly ill from it, I am relieved that the cuisines in India and Thailand have little dairy, little sugar, minimal white flour, lots of rice, beans and vegetables...a clean diet that my body likes.
Here's my list of what I'm bringing. You decide. Prepared or neurotic?
