How to help stop it in its tracks
The norovirus is the most common stomach bug, with up to 1 million people in the UK affected annually. Many parents across the country will have received a letter from school letting them know about this vomiting bug and warning them to keep their kids at home if they see any symptoms. However there are some simple ways to help protect both yourself and your child, including a new toxin-binding gel that can both help prevent the diarrhoea and stop its progression...
- Avoid sharing towels or flannels
- Don’t eat raw, unwashed produce
- Avoid sharing food or eating and drinking utensils with someone else
- Use an organic silica-based gel such as Enterosgel® taken with water, on a daily basis – to keep the gut cleansed of toxins.
- Wash your hands carefully with soap and water, especially after going to the toilet or changing a nappy and before eating or preparing food.
- Do not prepare food while infected for at least two days after you recover from the norovirus.
- Clean and disinfect contaminated surfaces using a bleach-based household cleaner
- Wash your laundry thoroughly. Handle soiled items carefully and avoid shaking them. Make sure you wear rubber or disposable gloves while handling soiled clothing or linens and wash your hands after handling. Wash soiled items with detergent at the maximum available cycle length and highest temperature and then machine dry.
