Food Poisoning Info

Illness derived through food consumption (also referred to as foodborne disease) is any illness or disease that results from eating contaminated food. Contamination usually occurs via bacteria, viruses, or other parasites that contaminate food (intestinal helminths or 'stomach worms',) as well as chemical or natural toxins contained in food (like poisonous mushrooms, for instance.)

Food poisoning usually arises from improper handling, preparation, or food storage. Practicing good hygiene when preparing food (i.e. washing one's hands before, during and after) can reduce the chances of contracting an illness. It seems so simple, but regular hand-washing is the most effective defence against contracting food poisoning. Monitoring the food consumed to ensure it will not cause food poisoning is known as food safety. Foodborne diseases can sometimes also be caused by a variety of toxins that also affect the environment. 

Food poisoning can also be caused by pesticides and some medicines in food (antibiotics in dairy) and toxic substances contained in poisonous mushrooms, uncooked pork or even certain species reef fish.

A healthcare professional should be contacted immediately if suspicion of food poisoning exists. Some natural health products may help the body recover from the nastiness that is food poisoning.

Product Reviews

  • Fantastic product

    I had a month this winter where I was hit with seasonal bug after bug and I was half way through my pregnancy. This worked really fast at helping me to get well again and stopped me getting sick again.
    Love it.

  • Bad constipation

    slow transit to bowel motion. I suffer from ibs and have trouble going toilet for number two. I would get myself into a panic when I went through days without bowel motions. I suffered anxiety attacks and would worry so much that it became a endless cycle. I started on the probiotics.and it took about two weeks before I saw any change. First thing I noticed was the jump in energy. I am sleeping way better than I did before. And I am going toilet for number 2 almost everyday. I am happy about that. My daughter has also started on this product and has also experienced the same thing as me. I love this product!
