The Rough Guide to Travel health is the definitive health handbook wherever you are travelling. Now in its second edition, it is fully updated making it more indispensable than ever.

The heart of the guide is an A–Z of potential problems and treatments, including homeopathy, herbal medicine and other complementary therapies.

As well as this wealth of general advice, there are safety tips for specific types of trips, such as active travel – skiing, scuba diving, climbing – together with a handy section on first aid. Sometime, somewhere, you’ll need this book – don’t leave home without it.
