A Natural Approach To Health
Living With Food Poisoning
I had a question the other day about food poisoning.
Food poisoning is a common, but distressing and sometimes life-threatening problem for millions of people.
People infected with food-borne organisms may have symptoms ranging from mild intestinal discomfort to severe dehydration and bloody diarrhea.
Depending on the type of infection, people can even die as a result of food poisoning.
More than 250 different diseases can cause food poisoning.
Some of the most common diseases are infections caused by bacteria.
The most common ones are Campylobacter, salmonella, shigella, E. coli, listeria and botulism.
Campylobacter is a type of food poisoning you get by ingesting contaminated food, water, or unpasteurized milk, or through contact with infected infants, pets, or wild animals.
Salmonella can be passed on to humans from domestic and wild animals.
But usually it’s caused by drinking unpasteurized milk or by eating undercooked poultry and poultry products, like eggs.
Food prepared on surfaces contaminated by raw chicken or turkey can also become tainted with salmonella.
Less often, the illness may come from food contaminated by a food worker.
Shigella is usually transmitted through feces.
It causes dysentery, an infection of the intestines causing severe diarrhea.
This disease usually occurs in tropical or temperate climates, especially under crowded conditions where personal hygiene is poor.
E. coli is a food-borne illness.
Most E. coli infections come from eating undercooked, contaminated ground beef.
Drinking unpasteurized milk can also cause infection.
Bacteria from stools of infected people can be passed to others if people have poor hygiene or hand-washing habits.
Young children often eliminate the organism in their feces for a week or two after their illness resolves.
Listeria is mainly found in soil and water.
Vegetables can become contaminated from soil or from manure used as fertilizer.
Listeria has been found in many types of uncooked foods, like meats and vegetables, as well as in processed foods that become contaminated after processing, like soft cheeses and cold cuts.
Listeria is killed by pasteurization, and heating procedures used to prepare ready-to-eat processed meats should be sufficient to kill the bacterium.
Botulism has 3 main types, food-borne, wound and infant.
Food-borne botulism is caused by eating foods that contain the botulism toxin.
Wound botulism, which is very rare, is caused by a toxin produced from a wound infected with botulism.
Infant botulism is caused by consuming the spores of botulism, which grow in a child’s intestines.
All forms of botulism can be deadly and are considered medical emergencies.
Most cases of food poisoning will go away in a few days with rest and care at home.
You can prevent most cases of food poisoning by being careful when preparing and storing food.
To deal with food poisoning it’s important to:
*Follow safe cooking and eating habits to avoid food poisoning.
*Drink 6-8 cups of purified water daily to soften stool, flush the system, and keep hydrated.
*Optiflora may be taken after each severe bout of diarrhea to replenish the “good” bacteria that were just eliminated.
*Support should be continued for 2-3 months after initial exposure because parasitic eggs can hatch 3-6 weeks later.
*Consider a full parasite, liver and/or colon cleanse.
*May wish to consider additional support of Black Walnut Capsules, Oil of Oregano, teas.
*Drink lots of Performance.
