15 years ago, I suffered for 2 weeks with campylobacter, since then I get what I believe to be food poisoning 4-5 times in a year. It is regular enough that I believe it to be caused by chicken, but no matter how well I cook it, how carefully I prepare it or how well I wash my hands and utensils, I occasionally get another episode, most recently this week. I am also the only one to suffer, although this time there were 7 people eating the same food.
Typically, these only last 24 hours and always include very painful stomach cramping and diarrhoea. This time, it lasted 4 days and also included minor vomiting and passing blood. I don't usually go to the doctor, but have done this time and the test results showed up nothing.
Does anyone have any experience with this, any recommendations or ideas what I could do? Is there a way I can 'strengthen' my gut or improve my digestive health so I can reduce the chance of this happening again in the future?
I don't want to give up eating chicken, but may have to consider it.
Any help would be appreciated.
