When I went to Morocco a few years ago, I was traveling with my friend Michael. He is way into natural remedies for all that ails you ... and he should know. We had a great trip, and one of our very fun moments was when we bought herbal medicines from the guy in this picture. I'm not sure if I believe in natural remedies as much as Michael does, but it was a great travel experience nonetheless.
As we head into the busy summer travel season, I thought it would be helpful to provide a terrific reference on the topic of travel health. It's the Center for Disease Control (CDC)'s Travel Health site, and you'll find it chock full of useful information. Things like immunizations needed in different parts of the world; dealing with illness or injury abroad; and links to all sorts of valuable local resources. Check it out, and use it when you're traveling your next big trip.
As for herbal remedies, I'd love to hear of your experiences. Comment away.
