Medical tourism and Health tourism are often miss understood
So let me explain both in short , in Medical tourism as it gives way by name it is when you travel and use medical facilities in cities other then the one you reside in for the sake of treatment , cost efficiency , better quality or a number of other things can be your reason to take tours such as this.
In health tourism you need not be sick or ill to opt for it you just need to realize your state and if you succeed in it you will find the urge to go back in nature and find a part of yourself your accessors left behind.
