Time & support: Most of the time, your body will take care of this on its own -- as long as you stay hydrated and rest for a couple of days. If stools are bloody or you cannot even keep fluids down, you need medical attention and support. If it's a child who is ill, they can dehydrate very quickly and may need to see a doctor sooner. Pedialyte can be good for both kids and adults if need be.

Time will tell: If you have a not too serious bacterial or spoiled food, then a day of nausea, vomiting, then diarrhea usually occurs. Unfortunately there are bad bugs out there that if your health is not the best, can result in death. If you are "sick" then weak care immediately to make sure you will recover.
