The last thing you want to face when you are traveling or on vacation is getting sick with food poisoning. Whether it is Montezuma’s Revenge, Bali Belly, or just plain food poisoning, travelers’ confinement can affect anyone, especially those visiting developing countries. To make matters worse, it can be difficult receiving optimal medical care in an unfamiliar country, which may prolong your illness.
What is Bali Belly?
In a nutshell, Bali Belly is a form of food poisoning.
What Causes Bali Belly?
Bali Belly is usually caused by consuming contaminated food or water. Unfiltered or untreated water can carry pathogens including bacteria, viruses, mold, or protozoa. In developing countries, sanitation isn’t at the standard we are accustomed to. Usually, Salmonella and E. Coli are the most common threats.
In Bali, restaurant hygiene and sanitation has improved substantially, especially since reopening after the pandemic, however, there is still no sewage system and drinking tap water is likely to lead to illness. Therefore things we take for granted such as eating uncooked vegetables and salad from a restaurant can carry some risk because we must trust that the eatery is using filtered water for its cooking.
What are the Symptoms of Bali Belly?
The symptoms of Bali Belly or food poisoning include the sudden onset of:
- Stomach cramps
- Mild temperature
- Loss of appetite
- Diarrhea or loose stools
- Body aches and pains
The moment you start experiencing any of these symptoms when traveling it is recommended you take action before the bacteria spreads and you become very unwell. Bali Belly can range from mild to severe, the earlier you catch it the better.
How to Avoid Bali Belly or Traveler’s Diarrhea
You want to enjoy your beautiful holiday, and not spend it in a medical centre or laying in bed (or in the bathroom). Therefore, being a smart traveler and avoiding risk-taking is the first way to avoid Bali belly.
- Only drink bottled or filtered water. Furthermore, use filtered water for brushing your teeth.
- Don’t use ice from unfiltered water in your drinks (if at a bar or restaurant, ask if they use filtered water for ice, most restaurants do)
- Drink tea and coffee made with only filtered water or bottled water.
- Make sure your plates from restaurants are completely dried; some places may still wash dishes with unfiltered water.
- Wash fruits and vegetables with filtered water or peel them before eating
- Avoid eating raw, rare, or uncooked meats
- Don’t eat food from buffets that have been sitting at room temperature for a while
- Avoid unpasteurized dairy, shaved ice, or street vendors.
How to Prevent Bali Belly
Prevention is better than cure, and you can absolutely avoid getting Bali Belly by taking the right steps to ensure your body is prepared and has the tools to quickly eradicate any nasty bacteria.
Here is how to avoid Bali Belly (or to recover quickly if it does sneak up on you).
Accelerated Scalar Silver® is enhancing your immune system’s ability to devitalize foreign pathogens including those that contribute to Bali Belly or food poisoning. Silver has been known for thousands of years as a natural antibiotic, antiviral, and antiparasitic agent.
When traveling to Bali, colloidal silver is cited as the leading treatment for Bali Belly in Indonesia, but it can be hard to find in Bali, and the quality can be questionable.
By taking the Accelerated Silver® throughout the day when traveling, you prevent any foreign pathogen from taking hold of your system. Furthermore, it will keep the immune system strong, and the body engages in anti-inflammatory processes, leading to optimal health, which encourages better gut health during travel.
Why Accelerated Silver?
It has a Nano particle-sized silver between 1.8 nm to 8.8 nm
- It is structured using phi ratio magnetic implosion technology
- It has an Alkaline pH of 8.0, whereas most silvers are acidic or Neutral pH
- It uses micro-clustered water technology to lower the surface tension for better absorption. No other silver applies this technology.
- There is no free oxygen or air contamination during the manufacturing process.
- It contains bio-informational imprints using advanced Scalar technology. No other company uses this technology.
- It is magnetically wiped of any rogue informational imprints.
- It contains only pure distilled water and silver.
I recommend taking one or two bottles of Accelerated Scalar Silver with you to Bali. Take some three times a day as a safety measure. If you feel you may have eaten something not quite right, it is safe to take up to 9 times a day.
In fact, one of the Accelerated Health team members lived in Bali for 4 months, took silver daily, and did not get sick once. Here is her testimony.
REAL STORY ABOUT ACCELERATED SCALAR SILVER IN BALI
“I’ve been working with Accelerated Health Products and Sara for many years now. I’ve always trusted the products, but in my role as Marketing Manager, my focus has been on how the products help others, not myself.
My husband Shane and I moved to Bali for 4 months this year (2022) and really lived the local life. I took bottles of Accelerated Scalar Silver with me and made sure it was part of our daily supplement routine. Neither my husband nor I were sick once, unlike friends of ours one evening – and we all ate the same food! I swear by it as a travel companion, and refuse to travel anywhere without it”.
Iodine is known to kill parasites, bacteria, and viruses that lead to Bali Belly. Those foreign pathogens could be creating issues that lead to Leaky Gut, diarrhea, and digestive discomfort.
Not only will Acceleradine help with your gut health, but it will improve your thyroid and metabolism health, help reverse Hashimoto’s, and improve mental clarity. It is able to cross the blood-brain barrier and actually kick out toxins such as fluoride from the brain which is a contributor to brain fog.
Accelerated Detox Powder®
This organic formula coats the stomach and intestinal lining soaks up foreign pathogens that cause Bali Belly, reduces inflammation, helps with bloat and regularity, and alleviates issues like Crohn’s disease and Colitis.

Leaky Gut Bundle
The Leaky Gut Bundle isn’t just for those suffering from leaky gut. This bundle is to recondition and repair the gut, and to protect from pathogens.
The bundle contains:
This unique probiotic blend aims to recondition the gut instead of reseeding with probiotic strains that cannot survive digestion or colonize the gut.
MegaSporeBiotic helps control the “bad” bacteria that lead to food poisoning, bloat and dysbiosis, and grow the “good” bacteria. It has been shown to help with E. Coli, Salmonella, H. Pylori and more.
This reinforces the beneficial microbial changes created by MegaSporeBiotic™ to promote a strong and diverse microbiome.
MegaMucosa protects the mucosal system from gut pathogens that cause Bali Belly. The mucosal system is a very important part of the human immune system. The mucosal system in the intestines contains 150 times more surface area than the skin, which makes it an essential element of the immune system that supports healthy immune function.
MegaMucosa™ is the first complete mucosal support supplement of its kind, formulated to support a healthy mucosal barrier.
Accelerated Ancient Salt™
Accelerated Ancient Salt™ is a strongly negatively charged salt; because of the negative charge, it helps “pull out” positively charged toxins, parasites, and undigested fats. It can help with nausea and other symptoms from Bali Belly, and also properly hydrate the body when it is suffering from dehydration associated with food poisoning. In addition to rehydrating the body, it is Scalar Charged to further enhance its ability to detox and rebalance the body.
With over 62 minerals, it will help rehydrate the body, improve energy, and improve bioelectrical function.
Quintessential .9 supports homeostasis, rehydration, and normal digestion while eliminating excess water retention. All of these factors are essential for healing from Bali Belly.
