Food poisoning- help!

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created September 19, 2010 at 9:04 PM

I thought I had found a good, convenient source for paleo takeout/delivery - a Persian kebab restaurant. Basically hunks of meat, chicken, or fish on a skewer.

All well and good until Thursday night when I'm pretty sure the ground beef and salmon kebabs I ordered were somehow bad. It's three days later and I'm still afraid to eat.

I'm just trying to think of a way I can start eating again without it coming back out one way or another so quickly.

(I could continue fasting, but three days is a little much!)

So I tried some bananas and applesauce last night and so far so good. Didn't get the opportunity to try anything with squash/pumkin, but I'll definitely try that next time someone in our house gets a stomach-related illness. Thanks!

I made eggs for my son on Sunday and boy did they look good, but I was still too scared to try to put anything like that in my stomach.

I think by the time I source it and have it delivered I'll have already recovered. I'll just hope I don't need it in the future :)

My wife and I shared a dinner from the restaurant, and we both got will the next morning. We think it was one of my kabobs, since I seem to be staying sicker longer - she was pretty much better the next day, fully better the day after - while mine was lingering. And she got sick because all of our kabobs were in the same box.

Pumpkin is famous for slowing and firming the stools. Plus it is very bland and easy on the stomach and intestines.

I think other squashes would work too. Butternut, zucchini, etc.

Thanks for the pumpkin idea. My little one is having some gasto-distress, and though I loathe the idea, I have been giving him some rice cereal which has helped a lot. I have found apples to worsen diarrhea in my other children, and bananas just have so much sugar I couldn't bring myself to try them. I'll try the pumpkin tonight.

Yeah, I recently followed a modified BRAT for my toddler, but I've personally been avoiding a ton of fruit. I guess I can make an exception :)

Here is what's in my shopping basket when I have a problem like this: canned pumpkin, chicken and beef stock, bananas, and apple sauce. I learned about the pumpkin from a dog trainer, who told me to use it when my dog was sick. I tried it on myself and it really stops things from passing through you. I usually mix the pumpkin with the stock as a soup. Bananas and applesauce are part of the BRAT(Bananas Rice Applesauce Toast) protocol my mother always followed when us kids were sick. I threw out the rice and toast. Bananas and applesauce work fine.

I always fast, but you've already done that. I do find personally, somewhat counterintuitively, that simple egg dishes like scrambled egg or omelettes, are easy on my stomach

Have you ever tried healing clay? Just stir 1 teasppon of healing clay in a glass of water and drink. It assists in the removal of toxic substances in the digestive system.

Do you know for sure what poisoned you? They say it can take up to 36 hours after ingestion for illness to occur.

Assuming you know for sure what did you in. SUpposedly, it can take 24 hours for symptoms of food poisoning to manifest.
