Food Poisoning Remedies: General Treatment

It is important to provide immediate treatment when you or any of your family members is affected by food poisoning. It is because some of the food poisoning types may lead to severe health problems resulting into death. For example, salmonella food poisoning, campylobacter food poisoning etc.

The common problems or food poisoning signs which show up during a food poisoning onset are nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. These food poisoning signs cause dehydration which is very fatal. Hence it is very necessary to provide food poisoning remedies as soon as possible. I will list down three simple but effective tips which you can follow at your home. They are as follows;

1. You must not eat solid foods when you are suffering from diarrhea. In addition, avoid dairy products at any cost since they can aggravate diarrhea.

2. You must consume fluids because you lose lots of fluids due to diarrhea and vomiting. But you must take sure not to drink milk or caffeinated beverages.

3. If your kids are affected by food poisoning and experiencing vomiting and diarrhea, then give an electrolyte solution which is available in drugstores.

In certain conditions, the above mentioned tips will not be helpful. For example, if you are unable to drink fluids due to nausea or vomiting, then the only option remains is to provide fluids through a vein. If you have consumed toxic mushrooms or shellfish, then you must rush to the nearby hospital as soon as possible. Otherwise, the conditions will get worsen. Last but the most important thing is to consult with your doctor before taking any medicine to stop vomiting or diarrhea.
