Traveller's bug - Stomach troubles

Back when we wintered in Mexico in our RV we ALWAYS had issues when we switched from bottled water in Mexico to tap water in the US. We finally learned that if we stuck with bottled water for a few days after we returned home, then gradually returned to tap water we would be OK.

We also started taking probiotics (Trader Joe's used to have great ones) before we left and continued for a week or so after we returned to US water.

We have always thought that it was just a case of different flora and fauna along with the stress of travel, leaving paradise, the temperature changes, all those things.

Could the shot you are referring to be the special shot Dr. Grayeb used for basically anything? If you went to see him you almost always received a shot in the butt of vitamins and other things that weren't antibiotics. It really seemed to help everyone for everything.

I had a "Grayeb 101-Uses Special" years ago, in my backside. Felt like I'd been kicked by a mule.
