It is the time of year when we are ready for relaxation and enjoyment of fresh produce and soft drinks, danger is everywhere. The thing is that in summer, we are most exposed to the risk of food poisoning. So, in preparation for the journey, the country or the picnic, you need to be armed.
Delicious and dangerous
In an effort to feast on fresh vegetables and fruits that summer is presented in great variety, we often forget about the need occurs, rinse. Just imagine what way does every apricot or mango, before you get to the shops! Another danger is that in warm time the products are stored for long and inevitably deteriorate. This concerns both fresh and processed food. Therefore, buying anything, check the expiration date and storage conditions, and the house definitely rinse the vegetables, fruits and herbs in warm running water. If necessary, you can even douse them with boiling water.
Storage conditions of products - a separate issue. Especially important it is for vacationers who are often faced with the problem of shortages of electricity. In this case the presence of the refrigerator will not save or ice cream or drink compote. To avoid unpleasant consequences from spoiled food, don't make weekly inventory, buy products not more than two days. It is best to eat cooked meals, and for storage to choose those who can lie all summer in a dry closed Cabinet.
Going on vacation or on a picnic, do not forget to watch what you eat. If the proposed dishes arouse suspicion, better refrain from wanting to try. This is not the case when we can hope to "maybe"because poisoning caused frivolous attitude to the food will spoil the rest, not only you, but your family. And poor health have long to recover.
The disease crept imperceptibly
Food poisoning, as a rule, disease-causing microorganisms and their toxins. Moreover, they occur much more frequently than chemical toxins, and a great variety of species. The most favourable environment for their development is what creates unwashed fruits, vegetables, expired, or improperly cooked food. Once in the human body, the bacteria inevitably cause inflammation of the entire gastrointestinal tract. Soaked in blood from the intestines, their toxins affect the entire body, causing we experience the typical symptoms: chills to palpitations.
To recognize the first signs of poisoning is not difficult. Sensing weakness, nausea, vomit, or indigestion, accompanied by diarrhea and abdominal pain, we need to take immediate actions. The main task in the treatment of poisoning: to rid the body of toxins. To neutralize toxins, you can use any available absorbent medication (for example, dioctahedral smectite, activated carbon). And don't forget to drink plenty of water, because the water will help flush toxins and prevent dehydration.
With the rapid and correct treatment even in the home of recovery will follow in the next two to three days. However, you should be attentive to their feelings. If discomfort continues, and the temperature did not go down - immediately contact your doctor. Before the visit, try to remember everything you ate and drank before the poisoning. It is likely that this disorder has a different origin and may require specialist input.
On the road to recovery
Any negative impact is a serious stress for the organism. In the case of the poisoning is affected and the whole digestive system, because not only the impacts of pathogens, but also treatment disrupt the natural balance of microflora.
Recovery takes time, and to make it more efficient, you can call for help modern multishtammovye probiotics. This type of probiotics inhibits the growth of pathogenic microflora, and also activates the immune system, increasing the level of immunoglobulins (for example, Rioflora Immuno Neo).
Modern drugs-probiotics basically have a whole set of useful bacteria. Once in the intestine, they normalize its work and contribute to the removal of unpleasant symptoms of poisoning. Multishtammovye probiotics operate in three directions: in the intestinal lumen, in his mucosal and submucosal layer.
Delivering the body of useful anaerobic bacteria, they reduce the population of pathogens and restoring damaged mucous - prevent repeated penetration of pathogenic bacteria. And finally, affecting the entire gastrointestinal system, probiotics stimulate the production of antibodies and interleukins, which are part of our immune system. Thus, the complex probiotic effect not only promotes rapid recovery after the poisoning, but also strengthens the body.
