Why is it Good to Carry Alcohol Hand Gel?

In Digestive, Health, Prevention, The Smart Health Project, Travel by Dr. Mariana Calleja3 Comments

Because prevention is the best medicine of all!

And moving around the world will get our hands dirty all the time. But this is okay! We need to put our senses to work as we discover new things, and the sense of touch is definitely one of the most special and unique ones.

But after we are done discovering a while and ready to grab a bite…that’s when we need to get our hands cleaned up.


Because something as simple as eating with our hands clean will prevent digestive problems such as diarrhoea. Because our hands have gone through lots of surfaces throughout the day.

“But it’s good to grow some body defences!” – some may say. Sure it is. But these defences are building up anyway as soon as we get in touch with new agents and microorganisms, every second and with every unconscious encounter we have when moving around. Every door you open, every bar you grab at the metro, every toilet you visit even if washing your hands afterwards. Every single time you are building up defences, because you are in constant touch with the world. And the body knows better. The body is wise enough.

So, taking care of your hygiene while you eat is just a good and smart prevention for further and unnecessary trouble while on the road, like a gastrointestinal infection with vomiting and diarrhoea.

Sounds smart enough, right? Well, it is.

Whether you have one already or you haven’t thought of this before, make sure to carry a tiny pocket-sized hand cleansing gel with you on your next trip. It is one of the best and simplest healthy habits to practice in life. As little as you think it might help, it actually is the opposite of that.

Alcohol hand gel actually makes some good, basic and healthy cleaning.

If you are not sure where to find these glorious pocket-sized bottles of packed hygiene, don’t worry! I got them. And you can buy them right here. Because I really want to help you to travel smarter, better and healthier.
