how to treat food poisoning at home

Now, let’s take a look at how to treat food poisoning at home. Ways of avoiding food poisoning are what you want to know if you are not suffering from food poisoning.

Food poisoning often improves without treatment within 48 hours. To help keep yourself more comfortable and prevent dehydration while you recover, try the following at home:

Let your stomach settle.

Stop eating and drinking for a few hours.

Try sucking on ice chips or taking small sips of water.

You might also try drinking clear soda, clear broth or noncaffeinated sports drinks, such as Gatorade. You’re getting enough fluid when you’re urinating normally and your urine is clear and not dark.

Ease back into eating.

Gradually begin to eat bland, low-fat, easy-to-digest foods, such as soda crackers, toast, gelatin, bananas, and rice. Stop eating if your nausea returns.

Avoid certain foods and substances until you’re feeling better.

These include dairy products, caffeine, alcohol, nicotine, and fatty or highly seasoned foods.


The illness and dehydration can weaken and tire you.
