Certain bacteria such as staphylococcus, streptococcus, salmonella, shigella and the clostridium bacteria are responsible for food poisoning. The contamination generally is a result of improper food handling and preparation. Using aluminum or unglazed ceramic earthenware for cooking can also cause symptoms like food poisoning and so should be avoided at all costs.
Use an emetic to empty the stomach of its contaminated contents so they will not be further assimilated into the system. Salt water is commonly used, but a large dose (1 tsp. – 1 tbsp.) of lobelia is unsurpassed for results. Follow this treatment with a quantity of juice and/or distilled water to dilute the toxins that were already absorbed by the system. It is best to follow food poisonings with one day of juice fast, followed by five days of the Inner Cleanse Diet.
Single Herbs: Lobelia (emetics), Charcoal, Garlic, Burdock root.
