simple carbon shower filter.  Don't worry about traveling, unless you're a traveling salesperson

carbon filters only mainly removes hormones in the water, there are a variety of shower filters you can buy but from me and ajanous experience most are not complete and usually only filters chlorine or something else at a time.
Don't take showers at hotels, problem solved.

AV took a different approach, at least for baths. Rather than filtering, he'd add things that would bind with the toxins and prevent them from entering your body through your skin/lungs, as well as pull toxins from your skin. He recommended using a little terramin clay and sometimes a little milk.

Most filtering would probably improve your water quality, assuming your water quality is bad (tap water). If you have decent water, some filtering methods could even add toxins.

For example, most shower-head filters designed to remove chlorine while keeping a good flow are made of heavy metals. Yes, you'll get rid of the chlorine and some other toxins, but you could be adding something even worse.

As I understand it, carbon filters restrict flow too much to be convenient for a shower-head installation.

Some of what I've read suggests that filtering should be done centrally rather than at the shower-head if you want it to be effective and safe. But of course that is more expensive, and you can't take it with you when you travel.

I use a shower filter with activated alumina, I have no idea if the metal in this is the same as regular aluminum.
The only thing I could find is that it is generally regarded as "safe".
