Traveler's diarrhea

Traveler's diarrhea (TD) is the most common illness affecting travelers.An estimated 10 million people—20% to 50% of international travelers—develop it annually. TD is defined as three or more unformed stools in 24 hours passed by a traveler, commonly accompanied by abdominal cramps, nausea, and bloating.Its diagnosis does not imply a specific organism, but enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli is the most commonly isolated pathogen.Most cases are self-limited; treatment is not routinely prescribed nor the pathogen identified unless symptoms become severe or persistent.
The onset of TD usually occurs within the first week of travel, but may occur at any time while traveling, and even after returning home. When it appears depends in part on the specific infectious agent. The incubation period for giardiasis averages about 14 days and that of cryptosporidiosis about seven days. Certain other bacterial and viral agents have shorter incubation periods, although hepatitis may take weeks to manifest itself. Most TD cases begin abruptly.
Typically, a traveler experiences four to five loose or watery bowel movements each day. Other commonly associated symptoms are diarrhea, abdominal cramping, bloating, low fever, urgency, disability to hold the feces and malaise, and appetite is usually low or nonexistent.
Blood or mucus in the diarrhea, abdominal pain, or high fever heralds a more serious cause, such as cholera, characterized by a rapid onset of symptoms including weakness, malaise, and torrents of watery diarrhea with flecks of mucus (described as "rice water" stools). Dehydration is a serious consequence of cholera; death may (rarely) occur as quickly as 24 hours after onset.

 Most cases of TD are mild and resolve in a few days without treatment with antibiotics or antimotility drugs. Severe or protracted cases, however, may result in significant fluid loss and dangerous electrolytic imbalance. Adequate fluid intake (oral rehydration therapy) is essential to replace lost fluids and electrolytes. Clear, disinfected water or other liquids are routinely recommended for adults.Water that is purified is best, along with oral rehydration salts to replenish lost electrolytes. Carbonated water (soda), which has been left out so that the carbonation fizz is gone, is useful if nothing else is available. In severe or protracted cases, the oversight of a medical professional is advised.

Traveler's Health

Traveling can increase your chances of getting sick. A long flight can increase your risk for deep vein thrombosis. Once you arrive, it takes time to adjust to the water, food, and air in another place. Water in developing countries can contain viruses, bacteria, and parasites that cause stomach upset and diarrhea. Be safe by using only bottled or purified water for drinking, making ice cubes, and brushing your teeth. If you use tap water, boil it or use iodine tablets. Food poisoning can also be a risk. Eat only food that is fully cooked and served hot. Avoid unwashed or unpeeled raw fruits and vegetables.
If you are traveling out of the country, you might also need vaccinations or medicines to prevent specific illnesses. Which ones you need will depend on what part of the world you're visiting, the time of year, your age, overall health status, and previous immunizations. See your doctor 4 to 6 weeks before your trip. Most vaccines take time to become effective.

Travel Health with the 2014 Yellow Book

CDC Health Information for International Travel (commonly called the Yellow Book) is published every two years by CDC as a reference for those who advise international travelers about health risks. The Yellow Book is written primarily for health professionals, although others will find it useful.

Wellness tourism

Wellness tourism is travel for the purpose of promoting health and well-being through physical, psychological, or spiritual activities.[1] While wellness tourism is often correlated with medical tourism because health interests motivate the traveler, wellness tourists are proactive in seeking to improve or maintain health and quality of life, often focusing on prevention, while medical tourists generally travel reactively to receive treatment for a diagnosed disease or condition.
Wellness travelers pursue diverse services, including physical fitness and sports; beauty treatments; healthy diet and weight management; relaxation and stress relief; meditation; yoga; and health-related education. Wellness travelers may seek procedures or treatments using conventional, alternative, complementary, herbal, or homeopathic medicine.

Hotels and hospitality

Almost 17 million (40 percent)[9] of US hotel guests seek to maintain a healthy lifestyle while traveling. Global hotel groups, including Intercontinental Hotels Group[10] (IHG), Kimpton Hotels,[11] MGM Grand Hotel,[12] Trump Wellness Hotels,[13] and Westin,[14] have developed and promoted programs to attract these health-conscious guests.[15] Programs include healthy menu options, relaxation programs, spa services, and fitness facilities and classes.[5] As of 2012, over 80 percent of US hotels and over 90 percent of upscale US hotels offered fitness facilities.[16] Internationally, 45 percent of hotel guests indicated that the existence of a hotel spa was an important factor in their booking decision.[17]

Hospitals and medical centers

Hospitals are a significant provider of destination wellness programs. Typical programs emphasize lifestyle improvement, prevention, or health screening. Hospital and hotel partnerships often support these programs.
There is debate over whether wellness tourism can, by definition, involve a visit to a hospital, clinic, or physician's office. Some promoters of wellness tourism define all wellness travel services as delivered outside medical facilities in spas, health promotion or wellness centers, resorts, or hotels.[18]

Resorts and retreats

Wellness resorts and retreats offer short-term, residential programs to address specific health concerns, reduce stress, or support lifestyle improvement
