How To Reduce The Effects Of Food Poisoning

How to support food poisoning recovery at home?

With outdoor picnics and lunches in the sun, your risk of food poisoning increases in the summertime. Warmer temperatures allow harmful bacteria to proliferate at a faster rate, making food preparation, transportation and storage more risky.  

Whether you catch a parasite from unwashed salad greens or a bacterial imbalance from a dish left outside too long, here are my tips for supporting a safe return to health. 


Bind: Food poisoning is often due to the presence of a parasite or bad bacteria. My tip for moving these guys through your system is to take activated charcoal - an indigestible binding agent that absorbs toxins and moves them through the intestines and the colon to be excreted. If you don’t tolerate charcoal, chlorella is also an effective binding agent and a soothing alkalizer for the gut. 


Rehydrate: When we experience the typical symptoms of food poisoning like vomiting or diarrhea, it is vital to replenish our electrolytes and to rehydrate the body as it loses water. Drink Wild lytes up to five times a day to rebalance electrolyte levels, and to nourish the adrenal glands for a better recovery. Coconut water or unflavored electrolyte water are also smart options for replenishing key minerals. Avoid any food or drink with artificial flavors or dyes, as these can be dehydrating to the body!


Detox: Once you’re over the hump of your food poisoning, I always suggest a light detox routine to help the body rid itself of any lingering toxins. Avoid harsh protocols and opt for a juice instead, like my low-sulfur Wildatarian green juice. Cucumber and cilantro work together to remineralize the body, bind to toxins and support the body’s collagen structure. 

Bind, rehydrate and detox. My 3-step system can help you bounce back when your body takes an unexpected hit.
