Food Poisoning Tips

Sorry for not having any updates lately…I got food poisoning…AGAIN! I have such a weak stomach. :( Anyways, I was researching what to do if you have food poisoning and they said you should only drink fluids and not eat solid food until you stop vomiting. Besides water (which is actually not recommended since it goes through your system faster and does not keep you hydrdrated), you can also drink clear fluids like flat sprite, ginger ale, or watered down gatorade. You can also eat/drink broth, pudding, apple sauce or jello. Ginger is supposed to help with nausea.

I was also reading about home remedies which is always interesting and I found these tips!

hmm this one sounds a little dangerous haha

Apple Cider Vinegar
We suggest that you drink straight apple cider vinegar the moment you feel you might have food poisoning. Better yet, take it before going to a barbeque, or any event that the food has been sitting around for a while.

Dosage: In the case of food poisoning, we recommend 2 TABLESPOONS of pasteurized Apple Cider Vinegar as it is extremely strong. Grocery stores will carry at least one, if not more, commercial brands of ACV. Heinz is a good brand, but any will do. DO NOT DILUTE IT. However, be prepared for your throat and stomach to burn for a good half hour after you take it!

Note: This is the only time we suggest a pasteurized, commercial brand. For all other ailments and conditions, use organic apple cider vinegar. In the case of food poisoning, you want something extremely acidic. Organic just won’t give you quite the same bite!

Make sure you rinse with baking soda afterwards to protect your dental enamel.

this one is a rehydration recipe:

Mix fruit juice (for potassium) with 1/2 teaspoon of honey or corn syrup (for glucose) and a pinch of table salt (sodium chloride).

and a few more common tips:

Eat some bread, says Julian Whitaker, M.D., president of the Whitaker Wellness Center in Newport Beach, California. Bread has a tendency to soak up the poison and can give you a quick relief.

Drink an herbal tea of mint, raspberry, camomile and blackberry.
