Recover from Food Poisoning like Molly Ringwald

 

On Tuesday, Molly Ringwald, known for her roles as Andie from Pretty in Pink and Samantha from Sixteen Candles, suffered food poisoning after eating a meal at a Bondi Tapas Bar in Sydney, Australia. This film icon turned musician has performed over 200 times in seven countries and released her first jazz studio album, Except Sometimes, in April 2013, some of which were going to be performed at the Sydney entertainment complex on June 9th.

 

Daily Mail Australia reached out to her representatives and was able to get the scoop on Molly’s progress. “Unfortunately we all ate something that is not sitting well with us at last night’s meal. Molly’s still asleep and trying to be in best shape for tonight’s performance. I don’t think she’s going to be up for a talk … right now it feels like a long shot. Gurgly stomachs are no fun.” Molly will be continuing her tour in Bendigo, Canberra. For now, she’ll have to partake in some of these tactics to conquer her foodborne illness.

Symptoms, such as diarrhea, vomiting, loss of appetite, nausea, and abdominal cramps, after eating a meal indicates that you possibly have consumed contaminated food. Visit a doctor to diagnose the type of food poisoning and follow up with these actions to help treat it.

 

Stay hydrated.

Your body loses lots of fluids during this time due to vomiting and diarrhea. Sport drinks, coconut water, or water brands such as Smart Water are high in electrolytes and will help with weariness.

 

Say NO to Caffeine!

The digestive track may be irritated after consuming caffeinated drinks. Opt for decaffeinated teas. It will help settle your stomach.

Avoid solid foods.

Big meals are delicious but they won’t be after your body rejects it. Eating solid foods may cause more vomiting and diarrhea.

 

Try medications prescribed from the doctor.

You should always speak to a doctor about what prescriptions to take but if you try over-the counter drugs, Imodium and Pepto-Bismol help control nausea and diarrhea. However, these medications may slow down recovery.

 

Get some rest.

Whenever the body is ill, it feels fatigue. Your body recovers faster the more you sleep!

Make sure to wash your hands, store food properly, and cook your food all the way through! No one wants to experience this nuisance while they’re traveling and enjoying famous sites.
