[YEA]  Hooray to active charcoal pills and ACV!

My teenage son woke me up around 2:00 AM, on a school night with vomitting and the runs. I almost knew instantly that it was food poisoning. It was a local eatery here, not my food, of course! I jumped on-line, saw this site and viewed all of the stories for active charcoal and ACV. He took two charcoal pills and two tablespoons of ACV, followed with a Sprite to kill some of the taste. He hasn't thrown up for four hours now, and only one rush to the toilet. He's been asleep now for two hours! This works! Hope it works for you too!

[YEA]  Hi,
~I recently had a nasty bout of food poisoning caused by some barbequed chicken (never leave chicken out of the fridge, even for an hour). I had fever, diarrhea, vomiting and horrible stomach cramps. It was only 4 days in that i discovered this website and i tried Activated Charcoal tablets and Cider Vinegar tablets from the local health food shop.

The charcoal was the first one i tried and within 10 minutes i found the cramps had eased considerably. I could even start to eat.

Later, when they returned I tried the Cider Vinegar and again 10 minutes wa all it took.

Overall I found them equally effective and I am using both in the final stages of the illness.

Thanks for all the great advice... I'll be using this site much more often!

i wanted to ask if anyone had tried the apple Cider vinegar first before eating out? Last Christmas party 2 people got food poisoning.. we all ate the same food. I took a Tablespoon of ACV 1 hr. before eating at the party. i ate everything, including salmon, chicken and veggie dishes but did not get sick. Now, of course there were many who did not get sick or who didn't complain of it. But i'd like to know if anyone else has heard about this little pre-party preventative.?

EC: Yes, heard that tip in DC Jarvis's book Folk Medicine!

Activated Charcoal, Lugol's Iodine

[YEA]  I just arrived in Bangkok last night at 2am having not eaten all day and stupidly ate some very cheap food (I was very hungry). I immediately took a few drops of iodine in water out of fear of the inevitable... but an hour later the inevitable happened and I got the runs and all the signs of impending food poisoning. So I took more iodine and some tablets I had which had a small amount of charcoal in them and pepsin (the digestive enzyme). I must have had around 20 drops of iodine and about 5 of these tablets and all symptoms went away in about an hour or less. Today I feel fine! I'm off to find some clean food.

[YEA]  Use Aloe Vera to stop food poisoning!!!!

Less than 2 hours after eating a salad with steak and a few pieces of fruit......I had food poisoning. It was a good restaurant yet all the symptoms were there....stomach bloating, pain, cramps, and then gaseous vomiting after emptying the bowels. Cramps were the worst. I mixed 2 teaspoons of baking soda in a glass of water and downed it. Shortly after I vomited several times easily which removed the contaminated food. Then I took the miracle worker ALOE stops food poisoning right away. Cut the plant and eat it or buy a good juice or try the pills....... Keep taking it for the day. It will ease your sore stomach and intestines as well. I was asleep almost immediately afterwards and woke up fine the next day.

If you are a few hours into digestion take the ALOE FIRST. I wanted the food out of my stomach before it hit my intestines so I took the baking soda first. After vomiting it is important to replenish electrolytes can drink coconut water, or put lemon or lime in water with sugar and salt and keep drinking it or buy some. This is essential to get back your strength. Hope this is serving to someone.

[YEA]  Apple cider vinegar works. I had a severe case of food poison lasting 2 1/2 weeks. Severe stomach pain, fever, chills, body aches severe diarrhea and I went to a medical doctor and a digestive disease specialist both confirming food poison one prescribed high dose of antibiotics the other saying to stop antibiotics and let it run its course. After 2 weeks of on and off illness I decided to try the apple cider vinegar by taking 2 tbsp straight undiluted . Later on I had a horrible bowel movement but I felt like it was the bacteria coming out. The next day I took another dose but diluted with warm water and honey. And the sickness disappeared!!

[YEA]  Re: Food Poisoning - We all know that gurgling, acidic, unsettling feeling in our stomachs that is quickly followed by the thought "Oh no, I'm about to be sick". Then comes the nausea and stomach cramping. I read the reviews here and went to the nearest store and bought Bragg's Organic Apple Cider Vinegar immediately. I added 2 teaspoons to about 4 ounces of cold water and sipped on the concoction over the course of 15 minutes. Within 15 minutes of finishing my drink, I immediately felt better! The hot, sweaty feeling went away, my nausea was stopped in its tracks and my stomach settled pretty quickly. Within an hour I was hungry again and was able to eat a light lunch with no problem. This stuff WORKS!

[YEA]  Oh my god people. You all saved me last night. As I was laying in bed, clenched in fetal position - a position I've been in for a day and a half after food poisoning - I realized I couldn't take the stomach cramps any longer. I read on many sites that I needed to go to the doctor incase I have infected my intestines due to my food poisoning experience. I was so bloated that when I stood (even standing strait up was a challenge) in front of the mirror from the side, I looked pregnant, for the record, I am not. I thought I was going to have to go to emergency because the cramps were beyond tolerable. Then I found this site. Since I already had organic apple cider vinegar handy for my sinus issues that come and go, I thought why not give it a shot, what do I have to lose. About an hour after taking 2 teaspoons strait from the bottle, no water added, the cramps subsided. I was so grateful for this site at 4:00am this morning. I took a couple more teaspoons a couple hours later. What's better...! It also helped to get the bowels going. Thank you to all!! I'm starting to feel like myself again.

[YEA]  The Stupid:
Last night I cooked dinner for my husband and I. One of the chicken breasts was significantly thicker, and even after putting it back in the oven briefly, it seemed a bit questionable. Stupidly, as I was starving, I decided it was fiiiiine, and gave my husband the well-cooked breast.

I took one bite of mine, and the slightly rubbery texture was enough to have me spitting it back out and deciding to forgo the rest.

The Pain:
Regardless, I woke up at 3 am with sharp pains in my stomach, and an extremely active digestive system. Gurgles, rumbling, and diarrhea. Looks like one nibble was enough bacteria to get me down. (Great.)

Tried to get back to sleep, but my constantly active/upset stomach left me googling for any solutions. Most traditional medical sites said "keep hydrated, it'll resolve in 4-7 days." (Again. Great.)

The Game-Changer:
But THEN I stumbled across suggestions of Apple Cider Vinegar, which I just happened to have on hand as a podcast recommended it for a variety of uses. (Always listen to your podcasts, kids.)

I drank 2 tablespoons of ACV in a glass of cool water (surprised at how easy it was to drink, as I'm a picky person and my stomach was not well...) and felt my stomach quiet before I finished the glass. Placebo effect, I wondered? I fell into an easy sleep (finally). When I woke up in the morning, my stomach/digestive system was quiet, and I felt fairly normal.

I still have a touch of diarrhea, but the other unpleasant symptoms have definitely died down. I started this morning with another glass of water with ACV, and intend to take it today before I eat and if and when symptoms act up.

THRILLED with my new miracle cure! :D

Does it have to be organic apple cider vinegar??

EC: Hi Tami,

From our experience over the years, any kind of ACV works very well for food poisoning and does NOT have to be organic.

[YEA]  My wife was writhing on the bathroom floor in agony with food poisoning when I got home last night - 10 pm. Huge debilitating stomach cramps, eventual vomiting, cold/hot sweats and tingling hands. Slippery elm and psyllium husks precipitated vomiting, which was cleansing, but the excruciating pain and cramping did not settle until two teaspoons of apple cider vinegar had been ingested. Second vomit was nearly dry retching, so stomach was virtually emptied. This was followed by another two teaspoons of apple cider vinegar. Now nearly midnight - she settled and slept with a full recovery by morning. Thank you apple cider vinegar and all those who led me to the remedy.

[YEA]  OMG it worked! My husband came back from a dinner at a friend's house and arriving after 40 min at home started with stomach pains, then he threw up, however at first we thought it was because of the too many martinis. Anyway, in the middle of the night he got up vomiting again and also had diarrhea and stomach cramping. I thought oh oh this is looking like food poisoning, he got up couple more times vomiting and in the morning still cramping and vomiting.

I went to look for natural remedies on my favorite site Earth Clinic and found that the same remedy I am taking for my sinus was good for food poisoning.... And maybe that is why he got sick and I did not despite eating same food. the minute he wasn't throwing up I gave him 2 TBSP ACV in 1/2 cup warm water, added 1 TSP manuka honey for better tasting, he took 1/2 and then shortly after he threw up again, but even like that cramping subsided inmediately. I made him drink the other half and he kept it down and he felt so much better almost inmediately and felt asleep like a baby. Thank you earth clinic and all of you who have contributed with their experiences, thank you!!!

[YEA]  I ate just one Taco Bell burrito on Sunday evening and was driving home when my tummy began making noises and cramping about half hour later. I had another hour to go so I prayed and kept going (a little faster than speed limit), and kept myself occupied talking with my grandchild. I literally had to run into my home when we arrived feeling like I was going to collapse and puke or worse. Immediately I took 2 tbsp AVC in 1/2 glass water. The diarrhea-cramping and nausea lasted five days but I tool ACV with raw honey every morning and afternoon in water and now all symptoms are gone. I ate a hearty dinner last night and am good to go. I have used ACV and charcoal on a previous occasion of deliberate food poisoning by someone from my-in laws. I was given this remedy by a 93 year old American lady at that time in 1993. One must be diligent to take it like medicine and see the amazing results. I keep a gallon of ACV in my kitchen at all times. Organic ACV with Mother works best!

[YEA]  Yes, apple cider vinegar helps ease the stomach. At first, when I searched for food poisoning remedies on earth clinic and I read ACV as the top remedy, I thought, "no way! " How could an ACID help your stomach?! But, it does. I mixed 2 tablespoons in water, and just a few minutes later the cramping, bloating and nausea slowly disappeared. Give it a try! You have nothing to lose!

[YEA]  my friend called me last week. She Had food poisoning. She was on the second night, a seriosly dehydrated. Couldn't even keep water down. I had her mix a spoon of ACV in a cup of water. She swallowed a spoonful. The quarter of a second it was in her stomach was all it took. Thank God and earth clinic. Within the hour she turned the corner. 2 hours and she drank water ate soup. Thanks all.

[YEA]  Per the recommendation of EC I tried drinking ACV at the onset of food poisoning (ate bad chicken). It worked! I was doubled over in pain for two hours before I tried 1 tablespoon of ACV in cold water. I vomited an hour later, but the pain came back. This time I downed another Tablespoon in a glass of hot water. Same deal. I vomited an hour later. Finally I drank 1/4 cup ACV straight. It was very difficult to keep down, but I managed. An hour later I vomited again and slept through the night. I woke up feeling better and didn't get sick again. I think the ACV needs to be undiluted to work. Thanks for the suggestion!

[YEA]   Thanks for the info. I think I undercooked my chicken last night. Not quite sure if the inside reached 165. Within a few hours my husband and I had sore throats and my stomach was ever so slightly irritated as well. At first I drank some diluted organic ACV, then had some liquid cal-mag-zinc, but then after reading that the acid kills the bacteria, and knowing calcium is a buffer, I downed more diluted ACV passed the moment it made me feel like gagging. The stomach ache was different now. I think I drank too much ACV, but at least it probably killed most of the bacteria to bring it to a safe level.

Well after 34 years I have finally had my first case of food poison. I could not completely narrow this dread awful feeling to what I had eaten. Here are my symptoms and I am now on day 4. First two days, I had betwwen 5-6 bowel movements. The night of day two, the fever and cramps started. The third day had to be the grand finale. I counted about 23 trips to the restroom, with all liquids completly running through my system with cramps worsening. I'm on day four about 10 trips to the restroom and a little more severe cramps but not as many. I have just tried the apple cider so hopefully it will ease my cramps and kill all the little dudes causing so much havoc in my digestive tract. Ladies..... Now I think I know how you feel with menstrual cramps every month. I hope I never go through this again. Please feel free to e-mail me if anything has helped with you besides just waiting it out.

Thanks, Jason
