我常常想知道这是否是一种永远困扰着我的疾病,一个我永远无法摆脱的-那就是,the travel bug.不可言传的真相,旅行在我身上留下了印记,我不知道会发生什么事。

Rewind back two years ago,我第一次去太阳谷,Idaho.通过看到佩特拉快速前进,在波拉波拉和鲨鱼一起游泳,在瑞士徒步旅行阿尔卑斯山,overnight trains in Vietnam,cruising Greece's islands,今天我在这里,比两年前更糟了。What am I talking about?I am talking about my health and body.

I guess our bodies are not designed to be 30,000 feet in the sky for an extended amount of time,and it's safe to say my body has had its fair share of time in the sky.直到今年6月,我才开始注意到这种磨损。开始时很小,就像奇怪的皮肤感染和偶尔的浮肿一样,我把这归咎于过度吃面包。如果你旅行过,you know the game of"get caffeinated"和“吃任何能填饱肚子的东西,直到下顿饭。”心态。I did this for two years,我希望我没有。

我拍打着自己的身体,until it broke.I found it easy to push through the pains of exhaustion,acid reflux,更令人惊讶的是,在你的身体发出足够大的声音让你听到之前,它能承受多大的压力。那是九月,大约两个月前在佛罗伦萨,Italy.我坐下来吃晚饭,那将是最后的稻草。It was an incredible pasta dish,既富又咸,都能和谐相处。Two glasses of red wine during the meal and my usual espresso after dinner — seems like a usual dinner on the town,正确的?嗯,三个月前,我一直在与如此多的胃酸反流斗争,我经常觉得我的喉咙里有一个肿块(这是我疲劳的原因,too much caffeine,and poor eating habits).那晚晚饭后,我的酸太厉害了,我连饭都吃不下。I knew my body had had enough.

A month of no international travel couldn't have come at a better time.我遇到了一个朋友,他和我分享了她的旅程。Ayurvedicprogram,where she rid her body of my same symptoms.I took it as a sign,写下她的医生的电话号码,第二天打了电话。

放弃糖,乳品,gluten,谷物,豆,坚果,暗蛋白质,酒精,and most other fun foods cold turkey was both the best and worst at the same time. Maybe I had my fill of feeling sick,发炎的,and tired that it just made sense. Either way,我知道这是我身体所需要的。在我的医生的指导下,we worked through a regiment that was tailored to my body to cleanse it of the different ailments or as I described it,"travel."It included a rather strict diet (listed above),锻炼,还有草药茶来清洗我的肝脏和血液。I remember when I wrote down week 1 in my journal,and thought I would never see week 6.My goal was to do the program until I left for Bali (this week).

It was worth it.我从来不知道吃得这么干净会感觉这么好。I love food,I am French,你怪我吗?It was a challenging month,但结果是生活发生了改变。

As I walked through the program,我开始想,这意味着旅游业的发展?Eating clean while traveling,and balancing the importance of trying local foods,is not easy.以下是我决定在旅行中前进的方式:

+ Know when and where.有时候要好好尝试,当地食物。Does it need to be every meal?Probably not.一切都有道理。
+不要把它和咖啡因一起过期。当我累的时候,慢下来。
+实事求是,不要对自己太苛刻。

我很高兴能在今年结束几次激动人心的旅行,我将很快与大家分享。我感到精神振奋,可以继续清洁饮食,even when traveling.I've had a few test runs with weekend trips,and am slowly gaining the confidence that I can step out knowing that I can travel and feel well.This past month of cleansing my body of travel has had triumphs and turbulence,但这是我很长时间以来最美好的一个月。
