Many of our friends who came to India fell ill, raped and even committed scams.
So we were forced to create this website to help people prepare for the journey of a lifetime.
And most recently:
In this online video course, we learn to make all our “Secrets” journey smart and safe (and sick or unhealthy!) In India … Based on our own decade of travel in India, 15+ years in India and others Tips from live expat experts. Countless hours of research, and more.
It also comes with a private Facebook support group where you can ask unlimited questions, such as “How do I get a train ticket?”, “How much tip should I give to my tour guide?” And “How does pollution occur at night?” e.t.c.
Tips to eat in India to avoid disease:
2) Do not eat salad, juice or anything raw. Uncooked food will inevitably be washed with contaminated water, which will lead you to the toilet. If you are a raw eater, I recommend you change your diet in India.
3) Eat exclusively from busy restaurants that are busy. If you want to be sure of a surprisingly tasty, safe meal, check out the 4 and 5 star hotels.
How to eat street food of India
4) Eating-street-food-in-India: Never eat street food. Some brag about how they ate Indian street food and did not get sick but it simply is not worth it. There was even a friend of mine who, due to eating unsafe Indian street food, e. Collie dies due to infection!
5) Probiotics and charcoal are amazing. Probiotics promote good bacteria in your stomach, improve digestion and increase natural immunity. They are very essential before your trip to India and especially during your visit. On the other hand, charcoal pills are an incredibly effective way of preventing diarrhea and dysentery. It quickly absorbs toxins or pathogens that are causing the problem. As always, consult your doctor.
6) Avoid too much spicy food, especially chili. Some spices are good, but in my experience chilli acting as a laxative is probably something you don’t want.
Be a vegetarian
7) While you are there, consider becoming a vegetarian. India has the lowest meat consumption rate in the world (see graph below). The meat I have seen is very unsafe, often hanging in the hot, open air, buzzing with flies. If you can, I recommend being vegetarian to reduce the possibility of vegetarian food poisoning in India.
8) Do not overdo it. This will weaken your digestion and immunity which makes you an easy target for bacteria. To help with my digestion and overall health, I take organic amla berry pills and another immune enhancing Ayurvedic medicine called bio-immunity.
9) Eat-hands-in-India- Use your hands – it’s fun! Your hands are often the cleanest utensils, because you know where they are and the pleasure of using your hands is trying well. However, remember to use hand sanitizer!
10) Local restaurants can eat all-you-can-eat food for $ 1! Beware of cleanliness and only go to the best, busiest restaurants. Seek advice from local people.
11) It is a pleasure to have dinner at the family home but take care. I ate the best food of my life in people’s homes. Again, it is important to be cautious and do not drink tap water, only cooked food. Also do not eat food too quickly because they will put the food in your plate and expect you to feed them even if you are not careful!
How to beware with water while traveling in India:
13) Drink only bottled water. All tap water in India is contaminated with pollutants and amoebae. By drinking only good bottled mineral water, you can avoid getting sick. The only brands I recommend are Bisleri, Kinley & Aquafina. Other brands are not trustworthy.
14) Stay well hydrated. India is generally hot and dry. Drink at least 2 liters (1/2 gallon) of water per day to stay healthy and strong.
15) If you are trekking, bring a water filter. In rare cases, where bottled water is not available during trekking, you need a Catadin Pocket Water Filter or at least one Lifestra, so that you can get safe water from flowing rivers. If possible, boil it and you can also use iodine tablets to be extra safe.
16) Coconut water is amazing. Fresh coconut is extremely good at hydrating you, increasing your electrolytes, and making your stomach happy. However, coconut should not be drunk until you have cleaned both the straw and the knife.
17) It is very good to get up early in the morning. Tea is good for digestion because it contains ginger and cardamom. It should be safe to drink until you see them boiling and you are certain that the cup is clean. The price should not be more than Rs 10.
18) Coca-Cola can be a god. There is a popular folklore that kills coke bacteria and irritates the stomach. This may or may not be true, but it is certain that it is good to drink coke on a hot afternoon in India!
19) Electrolytes are very important. If you get dysentery, electrolytes are very important to stay hydrated. I recommend bringing a box from home otherwise they may be of lower quality and slightly spoiled when purchased in India.
20) Avoid ice in beverages. Since ice is made from the worst quality water source, I recommend you not to have any drink with ice in it. If a coke-like drink has cooled in the fridge, that’s fine.
21) Bathing-in-Gangs-India. Do not brush your teeth with tap water. As annoying as it may sound, I recommend brushing your teeth with bottled water only. This is because there may be a direct passage of blood flow from your gums and therefore it is easy to infect.
22) Take bath carefully. Do not open your mouth or eyes in the shower to help avoid water in any unwanted holes.
23) Take bath in holy rivers at your own risk. Taking a dip in the Ganges can be a magical experience but again, close your eyes and mouth and block your nose and ears to avoid getting too much water in the wrong hole.
How not to loose or avid in India:
25) No matter what a “gift” is, make sure it is a gift before actually accepting it. Otherwise you can get hit quickly with a bill.
26) The shopkeeper will rip you off. A simple way to reduce this is to go to “fixed rate” shops, bring a local with you or you will have to learn bargains like an Indian.
27) Do not give money to beggars. It may attract an army of beggars after you and help maintain their drug-driven “profession”.
28) Beware of all drivers: Auto-Rickshaw-India especially auto rickshaw drivers. Drivers in India are famous for their dishonesty and simplicity, so that you can try to make more money than yourself. For example, they may take you to the wrong hotel or give you a price five times higher than a reasonable rate.
29) Learn to avoid fake “information offices”. The way to know that everything looks monotonous, there is no computer (or not many), no proper desk and they tell you that all trains or hotels are fully booked due to an “incident”. This can be a front for the mafia, so beware of them and follow the instructions from them.
