I just got food poisoning from potato salad at a salad bar. When I finally figured out that it was food poisoning after the cramping got severe, I made myself throw up and am feeling 90% better. I topped it off with two aspirin and I am ready to sleep like a baby..

I can't understand why everybody doesn't know this yet, I have had the worst food poisoning I have ever heard of and after 3 days of throwing up and having diarrhea, I finally spoke with my mom who told me to try plain white yogurt. 30 minutes later I could actually sit up and within an hour I was almost normal. Since then every time a friend has symptoms I tell them to eat yogurt and in every case they were better within an hour. I can't say it enough. It's the only cure! PLAIN YOGURT. Just make sure it says "live and active culture" on the label..
