Intuitive Nutritionist, Jeanette Sousa recently made a video about using coriander seed
oil for food poisoning. Check it out to discover Jeanette’s secret weapons for stomach trouble.
It’s fateful timing because one of the things I wanted to talk about this week is using coriander oil to protect yourself while traveling.
What is Food Poisoning?
Often when people are traveling, especially if they are headed somewhere exotic, food poisoning becomes a problem. When you’re exposed to new environments or traveling in places where dangerous bacteria
are more common you’re at risk.
Dr. Leigh Erin Connealy of Newport Natural Health defines the culprit for us: “Food poisoning, also known as foodborne or
waterborne illness, is the body’s negative response after ingesting contaminated food or water. The most common causes of contamination are harmful bacteria (not the beneficial bacteria that reside in our intestinal tract), a fungus, a virus, a parasite,
or a toxin produced by one of these organisms.
Over 200 different organisms can cause food poisoning, the most common being Salmonella
and E. coli (Escherichia coli). All these organisms are extremely stealthy. Generally, contaminated food looks and tastes just fine, so you have no way of knowing that it could make you sick.”
Symptoms of food poisoning include:
- stomach cramps or aches
Generally, food poisoning symptoms can last anywhere from one to several days. Severe
cases can last even longer than that.
So, how can you protect yourself and still try new cultures and experiences?
There are a few preventative measures you can take:
- washing your hands thoroughly and often
- drinking only
- washing all fresh produce
- being conscious of restaurant quality
These are good guidelines for safe travel, but they still may not be enough to save your tummy and your vacation.
coriander seed oil will come in really handy.
Coriander Seed Oil: Vacation Saver!
How can coriander oil protect you from food poisoning (aka Traveler’s Diarrhea)?
Coriander seed oil has strong antibacterial and
antifungal properties. Recent research has shown that coriander is even effective against superbugs.
As Meredith Melnick at healthland.time.com notes “In the new study, Dr. Fernanda Domingues of the University of Beira Interior, in Portugal, and her team tested the effect of coriander oil against 12 bacterial strains in the lab, including E. coli, Salmonella enterica, Bacillus
cereus and methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, or MRSA. Solutions containing 1.6% coriander or less killed or slowed the growth of all the bacteria tested.”
Using coriander seed oil as a preventative measure, with as
little as one dropperful per day (like Jeanette does in her video) can help to protect you from bacterial infections, including food poisoning.
OrganicFacts.com will back us up on this one, even mentioning one of the nastiest bugs by name: “Salmonella is one of the most dangerous causes of food borne illnesses in the world, so any natural way to protect against it is very important. Coriander has unusually high levels of dodecenal, a natural compound that is actually twice
as powerful of an antibiotic than the leading treatment for salmonella-based illness. By adding coriander into your normal diet, you protect your body from horribly uncomfortable, and even fatal, illnesses relating to this deadly bacteria.”
oil also helps to create an ideal environment for healthy gut bacteria, to keep your digestion and natural detox processes working in full swing.
You can also use coriander as a treatment if you find yourself struggling with a stomach bug or a case
of the tainted tacos. We recommend traveling with a bottle of coriander oil, just in case. Don’t let anything take away from your vacation fun, just be prepared, and you can enjoy the exotic fare worry-free!
As little as one dropperful can be
enough to start settling your stomach and bringing you relief. This is a natural product, so you can take more than one dropperful if you need to to get your gut under control and start feeling better.
Food poisoning doesn’t JUST occur while traveling.
You could be served contaminated food at a local restaurant, or buy it at the grocery store. That’s why, even if you don’t make it part of your daily routine, keeping coriander on hand as a home remedy, is an excellent idea
