The last time I had an upset stomach and couldn't take the nausea anymore, I swallowed a mouthful of organic vinegar and within 15 minutes I didn't feel sick anymore. Hate the taste, love the results.

Hi, I just came back from India where I ate whatever I decided. I had TWO food poisoning back to back. The second one gave me a worst ever diarrhea, the first one was bearable. After coming back from the trip I found earth clinic on the net, and gave a try to apple cider vinegar asap. I was cured almost immediately, after drinking a glass of water with half vinegar in it, I never had the symptoms again. Thank you for the help.

Regards, Charlie

My wife came home from work last week with really bad food poisoning--vomiting, unbearable cramping, dizziness. I saw the ACV remedy on this site and it worked in ten minutes!

Anytime I feel the stomach flu coming on or just feeling nauseas I take a shot of Organic ACV in water and whatever was coming on goes away. My husband got food poisoning from a bad turkey and when I felt it coming on I took the vinegar; he got very ill but I only had a minor stomachache. I have no idea if other vinegars will work as I have only used the organic ACV; it only costs about 5.00 for 32 oz. so well worth having it on hand forever.

I read somewhere that apple cider vinegar was good for food poisoning. I think it was in a book by Dr. Jarvis. Anyway, one night, after a meal featuring undercooked lamb at an upscale restaurant, I found myself in a painful ordeal in a public toilet not far from that restaurant, and as soon as I knew there was NOTHING left inside of me to come out unexpectedly, despite the fact that I was still cramping and miserable, I had dh drive me home and bring me some vinegar and water in a glass. I asked for half and half, though I don't recall what Dr. Jarvis said about amounts. I sipped teeny tiny sips, one every 2 minutes or so, barely enough to wet my tongue (it was very nasty tasting, lol).

Within fifteen minutes, the awful, endless cramping and dashes to the bathroom stopped. I kept sipping every five minutes or so for another forty five minutes, and was still fine, went peacefully to bed, no more problems that night, no problems the next day... It was all over. Since then I've only had one other opportunity to use ACV on suspected food poisoning, though it was a much milder incident. I felt better within minutes, as before.

Started to feel ill after eating some dodgy pork steaks tonight. Within a few hours I could feel the nausea and cramps starting up. Had a look on here for food poisoning remedies and took some ACV. I can't believe just how fast it worked, three swigs from the bottle chased with some water and within minutes I was back to normal. I think catching it early was a big factor in how quick it worked.

Awoke this morning to find my husband throwing up and diarrhea. Realized right away it was food poisoning. Got online to find a remedy and found this site. Thanks so much. The ACV worked like a charm. He's a pretty big guy. I gave him 2 tbls in 4 oz distilled water. He would rather have it a bit stronger in a smaller amount of water so he can down it quickly. Then he chased it with another 4 oz distilled water. 10 minutes later he was sleeping like a baby. Got up about 2 hours later and actually went to work!

Thank you everyone! Apple Cider Vineagar is a miracle remedy. I had a salad and within an hour I was vomitting. I took the apple cider vinegar about ten minutes after the episode and I feel so much better, as if I can return back to normal life. This is amazing.

Hi everybody,

I've been sick since late saturday evening. Diarrhea, vomiting, dizziness, the whole shabang. Called my Dr. to see what we could do about the pain. I just had a baby less than 2mos ago, and kinda experienced some of these symptoms, needless to say I was EXTREMLY nervous. Anyway I just came across this site (tues), and was happy to see a home remedy to cure this. I rushed in the kitchen and started searching throught the cabnits, I knew I had some.

As im writing this post im feeling 85% better (only been 3 mins). I mixed 2 Tbsp of ACV with half a cup of juice to help the taste. Im so happy to have found this site 2.5 days is too long to be feeling like this. Im actually starting to feel 95% better. Gonna take some more ACV in a couple of hours.

Thanks a lot for everyones post, im so glad for the internet and reputable site.

I had just returned from a long journey to Thailand and of all the exotic foods I ate along the way it was the last meal on the flight home that did me in. Feeling extremely nauseous with pangs of cramping I thought I could make my way through the next day using the old stand by acidolphilus yogurt cure. Not feeling any better after spending half the day vacilating between nausea, hunger and pain I searched the internet for a home remedy. Having heard Apple Cider Vinegar was an age-old use for just about everything including stain removal, I hopped in my car (still in my PJ's) and took a dixie cup full of vinegar, mixed it with half a cup of berry juice and downed the vile tasting swill. Even though I felt like vomitting right there in the store, I agree with a previous reader who said he could literally feeling it working. It felt as though all the bad bacteria were being "sizzled" in acid. It took about 45 minutes or so...but the cramping went away and I started to feel less nauseous. Unbelievable!!

ACV is amazing. I came home from work one day and ate a ham and turkey sandwich. About an hour later i started to get really sick. I had not had any type of food sickness before so I wasn't exactly sure what was going on with me. I developed a bad fever and was getty dizzy, not to mention the stomach cramps. I do not like throwing up so I tried to hold it off for as long as I could. It was coming whethere I liked it or not. I felt o.k. after the first throw up but still felt very weak and still had a fever. I went online to see about remedies for food sickness. This site was the first one to come up. I took 1 big gulp from ACV along with some orange juice( not sure if orange juice is the best to use). I still felt some of the pains from the illness, but i did not throw up one more time. I woke up this morning a totally different person. The stomach is a bit sore from the cramping but nothing i can complain about. The fever is gone also. Thanks to all the people who posted about their experiences, it helped out immensely.

Another confirmation of ACV for food poisoning. My mother rapidly started to come down with what seemed like food poisoning after eating some spoiled curry chicken. Since EarthClinic has been a reliable source of home cures, I checked it at once and then promptly gave her 2 tbsp. of ACV in a cup of store-bought juice. I also added the juice from half of a lime, since this helped me with stomach upset in the past. Within a few minutes of drinking it, she had stopped moaning in pain, and within 15 mins. was noticeably better. Now, half an hour later and she is practically back to normal.

I have had food poisoning a few times myself and know that it is terrible and often lasts for several gruelling hours. I am quite happy to spare my mom that experience.
Thank you EarthClinic and all the posters here!

Last night I started showing the signs of food poisoning (mild)- about 6 hours after eating I got cramps and nausea. I've had this happen before and it usually means I'm in for a long night of sitting in the bathroom where I can't quite throw up, even though I want to. Miserable.
I've come to this site before and found the apple cider vinegar cure for my sinus allergies (it works!), so I was happy to read that it can also help food poisoning. I drank 1 tbsp. ACV with a little bit of fruit punch (basic kind from Whole Foods). Then I just got in bed and waited it out. In about 5-10 I was feeling much better. Wow! I love it when something natural really does the trick. I also drank water before going to bed, to keep hydrated. Thanks everyone for the tip!

Food Poisioning: I had gone out to eat with friends of mine for breakfast and I had crisy bacon, along with grits eggs and toast. I thought the bacon kinda had a little different taste, but just presumed it being a different brand. Came home and about three hours later, stomach was cramping, felt nauseaus and felt as thought I was going to get sick.

Checked the net and came to this site. Had a half gallon of ACV for the purpose of cooking. Took the 2 Tablespoons in 1/4 cup water and within 30 minutes, felt fine. Jumped on it fast.

Thank you, as I am forever getting food poisoning on seafood at the beach. Now I will know what to do rather than be sick all night. Usually it is always seafood.

Have been telling everyone I come in contact with at the beach, as this is a good place to get it with seafood.
