Bimuno - for the "Dehli Belly" a new development

I came across this new product which is the latest thing for combating the Dehli Belly problem. It is not drugs but a prebiotic which you take for a few weeks prior to travelling and it reinforces your intestines natural bacteria which fends off the bad ones you ingest on the road. Worth a try I think

Measured against what? Continue to eat a balanced diet and continue to get plenty of exercise and save your money for travelling. If you're already doing both of the first parts and are still suffering from bad guts then go see your doctor. A sachet of 'pre'biotic won't replace either of the first two.

I am told that microbiologists at overseas conferences carry antibiotics. I know most people will hold their hands up in horror and claim it a drug company conspiracy or satan's work or industrial miltary complex beating down on the common man but you can't beat a bit of good old fashion antibiotic from time to time. This site is supplying antibiotics for traveller's diarrhoea. Looks relliable. Lots of good links to doctorfox.co.uk

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events all over the world with the help of volunteers; we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, or ask questions on the HUBB. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
