Treat Intestinal E.Coli Naturally

Intestinal E. coli infections can be debilitating and awful. While most strains of E. coli aren’t harmful, some such as O157:H7 are and can cause everything from cramps to diarrhea and vomiting. It can take up to a week before you begin suffering the symptoms of an infection, or it could hit you in as little as a day.

One of the most important things to look out for when suffering from an E.coli infection is dehydration. If you or a loved one is suffering from an E.coli infection and begin to show signs of dry mouth, dry eye, dark brown urine and lightheadedness seek medical attention immediately. These are the symptoms of dehydration and it means that you will need to receive medical attention. Dehydration is a serious problem and can be life threatening when combined with an illness like an E. coli intestinal infection.

You are most likely to get an E.coli infection from improperly prepared and cooked foods, poorly washed fresh fruits, and unpasteurized drinks such as raw milk. Contaminated water is also a frequent culprit.

In most cases a case of intestinal e.coli infection will disappear in about a week. If it lasts longer than that or you begin to feel dehydrated, seek medical attention and care.
