How to treat food toxicoinfection?

You can`t avoid bacteria, especially because there are “good bacteria” necessary for our body.

How to treat food toxicoinfection

Therefore, in order to stay away from any disorders, the solution is to avoid the foods that provide those “bad bacteria”.

What are the “guilty” bacteria?
Firstly, these bacteria carriers are animal products, other unwashed foods, and vegetables. The most frequent sources are: meat, eggs, and milk, which develop the most common bacteria such as Salmonella, Listeria, Campylobacter, E. coli.

Symptoms of food toxicoinfection:
• Stomach cramps
• Nausea or even vomiting
• Diarrhoea
• Fever
Feeling bad can come across 2-3 hours after you’ve eaten the contaminated product or even 48 hours later. In the case of a slight food toxicoinfection, you will get well shortly. These symptoms are actually the body’s method of defence against pathogens, so don’t panic.

Treatment in case of food toxicoinfection
Food toxicoinfection generally lasts 2-3 days. You need to drink plenty of fluids to avoid dehydration. If, however, the dehydration is severe, you will be definitely recommended to go to a hospital.

Home treatment:
• Consume as many liquids as often as you can, but in small quantities – mint infusion, for example, two cups a day, water (boiled), vegetable soup, carrot juice to hydrate the body.
• Medicinal charcoal – it eliminates toxins.
• Eat boiled rice, low-fat cheese, bananas, and mashed vegetables – often, but in small quantities.

How to fight “bad” bacteria
To avoid food toxicoinfection, you must be careful where you buy products from, how you cook them, and how you preserve them. Precautionary measures might save you from the “invasion” of these bacteria.

• Wash your hands before and after you have touched any foods to shorten “the journey” of microorganisms from you to foods and vice versa.
• Wash fruits and vegetables thoroughly before eating them.
• Consume food that is cooked properly. For example, if you cut a piece of meat and you notice that the colour is pink (raw), avoid eating it.
• Be careful at what you eat; if you feel a strange smell, you`d better not eat it.
• Cover and put in refrigerator the foods once you’ve brought them home. Because bacteria are “happy”, when they are left at room temperature.

People with increased risk are: pregnant women, children, the elderly, and the chronically ill persons who need to be much more cautious, because their body fights harder with infections.
