  • Travel can impact even the sturdiest constitution. Follow the guidelines below to avoid constipation or dehydration, which can exacerbate your condition.
  • In very hot locations there is a high risk of dehydration. Try to drink 1.5-2 litres of water every day, unless advised otherwise. Drinking enough water is essential.
  • Check the quality of the local water with travel guides – you may need to buy bottled water. If so, use bottled water to brush your teeth. There may also be concerns over fruit and vegetables, depending on your location.
  • Carry a bottle of water so you can drink frequently.
  • To confirm you are drinking enough water, the colour of your urine is a good guideline. If you are well hydrated, it should be pale.
  • Make sure all your food is well prepared, particularly meat and fish. A high-fibre diet is advised. Avoid raw vegetables washed in tap water.
  • If you plan to use an irrigation system overseas, use bottled water if the local tap water is unsafe.
  • If you have travelled a long distance, your body may take time to adjust to the new schedule. Your bowels can also be affected by local cuisine which differs significantly from your usual.
