Next week I am going to Mexico, and in addition to being very excited.

I am preparing for my trip by getting some Chinese herbs which can take care of some stomach issues on the road.

Herbs for Digestion when Traveling

The best all around herbal formula for travelers digestive woes is Huo xiang zheng qi tang, which translates to the Patchoui formula for correcting the qi.

This formula is very useful for mild to moderate stomach problems like traveler’s diarrhea. Take it as soon as you feel a little bad. This is an aromatic formula which boosts digestion through pungent herbs like patchoui and ginger.

Acupressure for Upset Stomach

Acupressure can also help for an upset stomach on the road. You can massage Stomach 36 for stomach pain.  Also, Pericardium 6 is a very famous point for nausea.

There are also good herbs for traveling to high altitudes.
