Natural Remedies for Food Poisoning
On a family vacation a few years ago in Tennessee, my family frequented several steak houses. We took a jump and went to some very unusual local places, looking for an experience. After our third or fourth night of going out, I was feeling pretty full and started having stomach cramps.
Back at the hotel, around 1 a.m., the full feeling changed into gurgling, rumbling, cramping and pain. For the next few hours I was struck with a mild, but nonetheless horrific, case of food poisoning.
The same thing has happened to me and my family at almost every vacation we go on. We try to do as the locals do and then lose it like the locals never dreamed possible. If only we knew of this one simple trick: apple cider vinegar and activated charcoal.
What Is Activated Charcoal?
Activated Charcoal is good for absorbing poisonous substances and stopping vomiting. It’s not like the charcoal you cook with, it’s a very fine powder and does not irritate the mucous membranes of the GI system. It not only absorbs poisons, but also food nutrients and vitamins.
Apple Cider Vinegar is a cure all. It’s good for your hair, skin, stomach, digestive system, and more. I used it every time I have a sunburn because it takes the heat out of your burn and leaves you beautifully tan in just a few days, depending on how bad your burn is.
Activated Charcoal & Apple Cider Vinegar for Food Poisoning
So next time you feel the stomach rumbles and the need to vomit, you can take this remedy within eight hours of vomiting.
First, take equal parts water/juice and Apple Cider Vinegar. Then, in water or applesauce, take 1/2 teaspoon of Activated Charcoal. You should repeat this until the symptoms go away. It’s not going to taste like bubblegum or strawberries, but it will stop you from being sick.
