Herbal Remedies for Gastroenteritis
Gastroenteritis is an inflammation of the stomach and intestines often associated with food poisoning or a bacterial or viral infection.
An herbal treatment program can include demulcents and anti-inflammatories for the gastrointestinal tract, heat-clearing antimicrobial herbs and immune stimulants. A soothing diet for a week or so is usually indicated. A good probiotic supplement should be used for several weeks to promote a healthy microflora in the colon.
