In brief: Depends on cause

Food poisoning can come from toxins, viruses, and bacteria.
Only the bacterial cause is likely to need medical treatment. For all of them it s important to keep well hydrated with clear liquids that have electrolytes, and to avoid other foods to rest the GI tract. For any condition that last more than a couple of days it is a good idea to see a doctor.
