Botulism or food poisoning is a very common occurrence with everyone. It could be caused by a bacterial infection or a viral one. Some of the common symptoms of botulism are vomiting, diarrhoea, loss in appetite, generalized weakness and stomach cramps. Food poisoning can be caused by infected or outside foods but you never really know whatever you are eating is infected with bacteria or not.
The best way to avoid food poisoning is to keep away from eating at unhygienic places or keep away from eating outside during the monsoon season because that’s when all the opportunistic bacteria are most active.
It is easy to treat the condition of food poisoning through home remedies or natural ways, but you should religiously follow the treatment for at least a week until all your symptoms come back to normal including your loss in diet because that comes at the end. Here are some home remedies for treating botulism:
