Nausea, Vomiting, and/or Diarrhea · These intestinal disorders are generally viral in nature and self limiting, lasting hours. · Do not eat or drink anything for 4-6 hours then start with sips of clear liquids (water, Gatorade, ginger-ale, non-citrus jello, etc.). If after 12 hours of clear liquids your symptoms have abated, increase intake to include full liquids (soups, soft boiled eggs) and gradually work up to a bland diet (toast, bananas, cottage cheese, rice, boiled chicken). One form of this “diet” is called the BRAT Diet. It is an acronym that stands for … B ananas - R ice (white) - A pplesauce - T ea and T oast. · Many people can temporarily lose the ability to digest milk sugar for 1-2 weeks after an episode of gastroenteritis.

Gross but true facts about people who DON’T wash their hands: · They ingest fecal matter without evening knowing it! (GROSS!!) · They pass other stuff, like urine and snot to others! (GROSS!!) · They are more likely to get sick with the flu! (WHO LIKES BEING SICK? NO ONE!!) · They are more likely to catch more serious disease, like E. coli, Hepatitis A, bronchitis or pneumonia. SO STOP READING THIS AND JUST WASH YOUR HANDS!!!
