Learn to Treat Salmonella Poisoning the Right Way

Avoid Antibiotics: Taking antibiotics can actually slow down your recovery from salmonella poisoning because it can reduce the rate at which your body rids itself of the bacteria even though it may slow the symptoms.

Avoid Excessive Heat or Periods in the Sun: Heat and sun can dehydrate you further. So remain indoors and refrain from any physical activity.

Avoid Eating: Having a diet of liquids can help you recover from the food poisoning faster. Usually bland, easily digestible foods like soda and crackers are best when suffering from Salmonella poisoning.

Restore Beneficial Bacteria in the Digestive Tract: A healthy digestive system actually contains a number of “good” bacteria that aid the processing of food. You can replenish good bacteria with powder or capsules from your local health food store. You can also consume yogurts containing live Lactobacillus acidophilus cultures.

Drink a Lot of Clear Liquids: Diarrhoea and other symptoms of salmonella often lead to dehydration so the golden rule of food poisoning is to remain hydrated by drinking as much water as possible. Small frequent drinks of water are best and energy drinks and fruit juices also help to replace lost fluids and electrolytes. If you fail to hydrate yourself sufficiently you may be admitted to hospital where a health care professional will administer an intravenous drip to hydrate you.
