|BETTER BUT NOT CURED (1)||11%|
~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!

[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.
Apple Cider Vinegar Food Poisoning Remedy
Home Remedy Ingredients

Immediately taking 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar (straight, ideally, in a glass of water if you must) can kill off foreign pathogens in your food and stop food poisoning in no time at all.

[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.Posted by Jenn (Toronto, Ontario CA) on 02/08/2015
[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.
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.)
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! :DPosted by Jonathan (Noosa, Australia) on 02/03/2015
[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.Posted by Mariluz (Westchester, Ny) on 02/01/2015
[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!!!Posted by Sindee (San Diego, California) on 10/10/2014
[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!Posted by Mooshka on 06/26/2013
[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!Posted by Minkxy (NY, USA) on 04/08/2013
[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.Posted by Sarah (Toledo, Ohio, United States) on 02/20/2013
[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!Replied by Dan

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.

[YEA] I am pretty sure that I was on the verge of food poisoning last night. The moment that I started feeling bad I started taking ACV and Honey. I always get an Elevated Heart Rate when I get a fever and/or virus. This is my experience after eating supper:
Right after supper my stomach got bloated and hard and started cramping (pretty intense). Quickly, I took some ACV and honey. It helped with the bloatness and cramping. Not 100%, but better. Started getting chills and fever 99.2
11:40 pm. Fever 100.4 fixing to take more ACV heart rate up.
12:00am tried to have a bm but couldn't. Heart rate shot up and I had to lay down immediately.
12:45am fever 100.7 and elevated heart rate. Going to try to take some vinegar and honey. (got it done)!
1:30am fever=99.9 Hr still up. Worse when I have to get up.
Keep urinating and still bloated but not bad cramping as earlier. (drinking water only)
2:07 am. Feeling better except for my pounding elevated hr. And some pressure still in abdomen. I'm tired and sleepy, but this heart rate is keeping me up. Think I'll try some Gatorade now. Hr=95
2:30 am temp. =99.0 hr=93
Drank more Gatorade and water
5:30 am. Hr=75 temp=97.8 Woke up sweating and needed to go urinate. Tummy still somewhat bloated and uncomfortable, esp, when using muscles in that area.
10:00am hr=69 temp=97.9 feeling pretty darn good!!
Just a little tummy pressure and sleepiness.
Thanks ACV and Earthclinic! I know that it kept me from getting soooo sick!Posted by Ashlyn (Arlington, Va) on 07/22/2011
[YEA] A few days ago, I came down with a mild case of food poisoning- nauseous, sweaty, crampy and bad diarrhea. It had been going on for several days, forcing me to largely sit out my boyfriend's birthday dinner. I experienced no relief from Pepto, and was becoming incredibly dehydrated because of the bad heat wave going on right now.
Eventually, I remembered Earth Clinic (which I first used when looking up natural asthma remedies- go MSM! ). Anyhow, found an overwhelming positive response to ACV, so decided to get some (with the mother). Took 4 tbsp in a big glass of water. Although relief was not immediate, within an hour, the cramps were largely gone. By the next morning, although not 100% still, my symptoms had pretty much subsided- enough for me to eat something for the first time in days. Today I'm sipping on an ACV/water mix, continuing to feel better, and hoping I'll be well enough to maybe hit the pool this weekend after all. Thanks Earth Clinic for this simple, wonderful remedy!Replied by Crazygood

[YEA] I made some salmon for dinner around 7pm, and it seemed underdone when I was eating it but I didn't care (I was hungry! ). I'm not going to make that mistake again. I woke up at 5:00 with my stomach in a knot and I knew what was going to happen. I first threw up at 6, then felt much better, but about 30 minutes later I started feeling sock again. While I was sitting/laying on the bathroom floor waiting for the inevitable.
I did a quick search and found this site on my phone. I have to say that I was pretty skeptical about Apple Cider Vinegar but when I looked at all the success stories I thought I should give it a shot. I took two swigs from the bottle and thought I was going to vomit, but I didn't. In about 10 minutes I could feel my stomach starting to feel better. It's been 2 hours now and I just took one more swig, for good measure, and I'm slowly eating some wheat toast and sipping water on the couch in confidence. Thank you all for posting, this remedy is truly remarkable.Posted by Hip Hop Abs (Albuquerque, New Mexico) on 06/21/2011
[YEA] ACV works great for food poisoning, but it can also be taken with water BEFORE you eat. This will help acid reflux, digestion, and help prevent food poisoning.
