Soothe an irritated stomach using this DIY essential oil blend for food poisoning!
I’m sure food poisoning has ever happened to many of us! It is caused by eating contaminated food, food that hasn’t been properly cooked and certain types of mushrooms.
The symptoms of food poisoning can be absolutely unbearable to deal with! The most prominent symptoms include diarrhea, vomiting, nausea, abdominal pain and fever. In many cases, the vomiting doesn’t stop even after all of the infected food has been thrown up. This is because microbes can pass through the stomach into the intestines through the cells lining the intestinal walls and begin to multiply.
If you have a severe case of food poisoning, please visit the doctor for proper diagnosis and treatment. You can also use essential oils in conjunction with conventional treatment to speed up healing and find relief.
