Food poisoning is a common, yet stressful and sometimes life-threatening problem for countless people in the U.S. and all over the world. People poisoned with food-borne organisms may be symptom-free or may have signs and symptoms ranging from mild intestinal discomfort to severe dehydration and bloody diarrhea. Depending on the kind of issue, people can even die due to food poisoning.
The best remedy is to curtail eating until all the symptoms have subsided and the toxins have had the chance to exit your system. Drink plenty of fluids – vitamin C and blackberry and peppermint teas can be taken then to strengthen the stomach, along with yogurt that contains acidophilus to recolonize the lost flora in the bowel. Diluted sweetened drinks can also be consumed to replace the body’s lost fluid and electrolytes, and the BRAT diet (bananas, apples, rice and toast) can also be helpful in getting the toxins cleared from the body.
