Suitcases packed ready for holiday

It’s not what anybody wants to think about really before they fly off for two weeks’ relaxation. But sickness and diarrhoea can be a holiday wrecker. So here are a few homeopathic remedies for travel sickness and diarrhoea – they take up a minuscule space in your suitcase, yet pack immense relief if food poisoning, Delhi belly or suchlike strike while you’re away. They should not only reduce your symptoms, but also shorten the time you suffer.
