Prepare to be Grossed Out!

US Drug and Food report shows that up to 12% of dried spices, mostly from India and China are fouled with bug parts, rodent hair and other repulsive ingredients. Another 7% are defiled by salmonella. And guess what? It may be the spices making us sick and not the food itself. What to do? Always when possible buy fresh and local. Spices are expensive. Buy the best.  Why? Because an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Remember it is not so much what you eat, but how fresh it is, how it is prepared and the cleanliness and safety of the cook.
Natural remedies -Sipping on different types of herbal tea can help soothe your disturbed system and keep your body well hydrated. Peppermint tea has a soothing effect on your stomach and can relieve stomach cramps. Comfrey root and meadow sweet tea will treat your stomach infection. If you are experiencing nausea, try licorice tea or chamomile tea as these teas will reduce inflammation and calm your stomach.
