Food Poisoning (cont.)

Food Poisoning Home Remedies

Home care for mild to moderate bacterial and viral food poisoning is mainly preventing dehydration. Oral intake that approximates the volume of diarrhea by using a combination of water and electrolyte solutions like Gatorade or Pedialyte is usually enough to avoid dehydration. Infrequent or rare causes of food poisoning should be treated by a doctor or a specialist; this should also be done in severe viral and bacterial food poisonings.
