    Foods For a Healthy Body

    Depending on what type of sickness or bodily issues you are fighting, there are certain foods you can eat. Today we are going to focus on food poisoning and a few natural remedies to this sickness.

    Food poisoning : Food poisoning is one of the hardest sicknesses to get over on your own, as it causes dehydration which can be highly dangerous. Food poisoning is most often identified by :

    • Vomiting
    • Abdominal cramps
    • Diarrhea
    • Sweating
    • Dizziness
    • Excessive salivation
    • Stomach pain
    • Stuffy nose

    Foods that prevent food poisoning are below.

    1. Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV): This is a great resource for instant relief from food poisoning. The alkaline nature of apple cider vinegar will ease your symptoms. 2 tablespoons mixed into a cup of warm water can be consumed before eating solid foods. ACV will kill bacteria that would otherwise lead to food poisoning.
    2. Peppermint tea: 3 or 4 cups of peppermint tea will calm down contractions in the stomach. Peppermint will also help in the digestion of food and expulsion of gas. If you do not have peppermint tea, eat a peppermint candy or gum instead.
    3. Lemon: This is a great resource for warding off food poisoning. Lemon juice is anti-inflammatory, anti-viral and anti-bacterial. This leads to all food poisoning causing bacteria being killed. Consume a teaspoon of lemon with a pinch of sugar 2 or 3 times per day to clean out your system. If lemon juice is still too sour for you, drink it with a glass of warm water.
    4. Banana: Because bananas are so rich in potassium they are expert in reducing the effects of food poisoning. Bananas are easy on the stomach and are great for soothing the discomfort. Bananas can be eaten normally or prepared in a shake.
