Broken Guts - Tong Sia! by Anthony Aikman
A 'Rough' medical guide for foreign travellers in Thailand and S.E. Asia
Anthony Aikman is a retired British doctor living in a Lahu village in northern Chiang Rai. The book is described as a "rough medical guide for travelers in Thailand and Southeast Asia". It's in an unusual format in that it is handwritten, not typed, but is still easy to read.
It's not just about stomach upsets but also every type of medical problem you could face wandering around Thailand; from food poisoning to armpit boils; from jellyfish stings to snake bites. There's even a page on dodgy mushrooms!
It's written with a sense of humour and entertaining illustrations and can be found throughout the book. It could be a lifesaver next time you have health problems somewhere out in the boonies.
