Taking Charge of Your Health

Even if you’ve never had food poisoning, you
probably know someone who has. Food poisoning is actually fairly common,
and affects millions of people a year. Food poisoning happens when we eat foods that
are contaminated with organisms that can harm our bodies, such as bacteria, parasites and
viruses. It causes nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal
pain, and can take about 8 days to pass. There are a few natural remedies that can
help relive these unpleasant symptoms. Ginger
Ginger has been used for a long time to help aid digestion, especially for morning sickness. Furthermore, it’s used to help with vomiting,
a common symptom of food poisoning. You can make some ginger tea to relive these
symptoms by boiling a cup of water with a teaspoon of grated ginger, or just eat raw
ginger, in slices. Apple Cider Vinegar
Even though it’s an acid, when apple cider vinegar gets metabolized in our body, it has
an alkaline effect, which can relieve several of food poisoning’s symptoms. Organic, unfiltered apple cider vinegar also
has properties that can kill bacteria and give you relief from the symptoms. A good way to benefit from it is by mixing
2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar in a cup of hot water. Drink this before meals. Basil
During the time when you have food poisoning, it’s very common to feel abdominal discomfort. Basil can help a lot with these pains and
also fight the microorganisms that are causing the poisoning. You can drink juice made from basil leaves,
with a tablespoon of honey, several times a day, or add a few drops of basil oil to
4 cups of water and drink it all throughout the day. Activated Charcoal
A good remedy for food poisoning is vegetable charcoal (also known as activated charcoal),
because it inhibits the gastrointestinal absorption of the toxins responsible for food poisoning,
relieving the symptoms. You can take it in the form of powder mixed
with water, or in capsules. Garlic
Garlic is also a powerful natural remedy for food poisoning, mainly due to its virus, bacteria
and fungi fighting properties. Garlic can also help with diarrhea and abdominal
pain. You can make tea out of it, by adding 1 garlic
clove to a cup of boiling water. Mix in a cup of honey and drink the tea. It’s important to know that if you have
a high fever, severe abdominal pain or are vomiting a lot, you should go to see
a doctor.

  1. Thank you for sharing. Truly there are natural elements that will cure and help the body heal. I would like to say as well that activated charcoal is a very powerful element to remove toxins/poisons. Many times my animals had been poisoned with rat poisoning. Many times they were foaming at their mouth and we made some activated charcoal to force down their throats as they were about to die, but several hours later they were playing again.

  2. I’ve had food poisoning many many times. And when your going thru that hell for about 8 hours, u defiantly do NOT want to eat anything! So I couldn’t imagine eating raw ginger or swallowing apple cider vinegar.
