Food Poisoning

Outbreaks of Salmonella, and other types, food poisonings are becoming increasingly common.
Symptoms usually consist of violent vomiting and/or diarrhea. If the person affected is generally healthy and not under 2 or elderly, then the following recommendations will help speed up the recovery process.
1. Arsenicum album is a homeopathic remedy used in cases when there is both diarrhea and vomiting. The person benefiting most from Arsenicum album will be chilly, anxious and weak.

2. Sip on herbal teas, juices, or water every 5 minutes to prevent dehydration.
3. When the diarrhea and vomiting resolve, eat some good quality yogurt such as Nancy's to replenish healthy bacteria normally present in our intestines. Most commercial brands of yogurt do not have sufficient acidophilus to do this, so look for a good quality one.
