What Should You Do If It Happens To You?
Food poisoning is no picnic. In fact, it has happened to me more than once. It's not something the mind tends to forget, even years after an incident. It's a near death experience that lingers on, for sure. Recently, I experienced what I believe was food poisoning from eating some suspect raw vegetables from a left over salad.
Fruits and vegetables sold in grocery stores can be many months old before making it to store shelves, especially if they are bought out of season! As of late, most vegetables I buy at big box stores tend to spoil quicker than those freshly picked from local gardens and roadside vendors. This year because of circumstances, I couldn't grow a garden. So I shop at stores. But next year I vow to get the garden going in raised beds such as portable buckets and whatnot. I'll get all my plants going early next time. This isn't going to happen again! He who grows the food, controls the food! If I grow it myself, I know for a fact nothing toxic was sprayed on it. And I know it's fresh besides, I'll have plenty to go around. Let's say next year my organic food supply will literally be from farm to table. And I choose Touchstone Essentials as my main supplier of holistic organic, vegan plant-based vitamins, super greens and probiotic protein shakes.

WHAT ARE SOME OF THE CLASSIC SYMPTOMS OF FOOD POISONING? AND HOW DO YOU KNOW IF YOU HAVE IT?
Obviously these symptoms could be the impetus for a myriad of conditions. But, in my case, excuse the pun, my gut told me I was sick from something I ate.
I'm a vegetarian who tries to be careful about sanitary issues when preparing raw produce. But, no one is perfect. Raw wilted spinach most likely caused my episode of horrific gastrointestinal mayhem. After consuming a huge salad, I woke up the next day with some of the classic symptoms of food poisoning. Something felt squeezy in my gut and I instinctively knew it was something I ate! Immediately I had to rush to the John! I'm like holy freaking YUKKK. This went on for a week. Amazingly, my home remedies worked. And I was back to normal by the end of the weekly spell.
