Treatment for food poisoning
Obviously you will do everything in your power to avoid food poisoning in the first place, as food poisoning is one of the most unpleasant types of illness you can contract. Symptoms such as vomiting and diarrhea alongside excruciating stomach cramps and dehydration mean that food poisoning can make you feel extremely unwell to the point where you may not be able to cope with everyday life.
With dehydration being an issue you may also find that a really bad bout of food poisoning can lead to you being hospitalised for some time. People have even died from food poisoning. If you have been poisoned by something, as long as you aren’t suffering too severely you should be able to treat yourself in the following ways:
If you have contraced food poisoning from a restaurant or somewhere else that has served you bad food, you may be able to consider accident claims in Connah’s Quay as a way to get compensation for what you have suffered.

The best way to recover from any type of food poisoning is to rehydrate as best you can. This can be difficult if you are vomiting a lot, as many people find that as soon as they swallow water it comes back up again. Try sipping water very carefully, and letting the first drop go down before attempting a second. If you cannot keep liquids down, you will have to go to the hospital to be put onto a drip. Oral Rehydration Salts can be bought over the counter, and will help with this process.
Your body is incredibly weak after a bout of food poisoning, and so you shouldn’t push yourself to do anything. Most people just feel as though they can lie in bed or on the sofa and that’s it, but others may feel that they should be doing more. Don’t try to move at all if you are feeling weak, as this can make your illness last for longer.
Only in really persistent cases will you be prescribed antibiotics, but these can help your gut to recover more quickly, and prevent you from becoming even more ill than you already are.
