Nothing is simpler than fixing an upset stomach or stop vomiting.
Try this old family remedy and you can be sure it's going to be the best remedy for stomach flu, hangover, or anything else that turn your stomach. You will want to share this simple and cheap trick with everyone.

Prepare the recipe of the black pepper in one glass and get another glass of plain water to rinse your mouth after ingesting the recipe.
Take some black pepper, about 1/2 a teaspoon (yes really) and add it to a glass of water. Drink it fast, and all. Then rinse your mouth right away after ingesting the 1st glass, so no pepper stays in your mouth.

You think its going to hurt your stomach? No, instead it settles it for good. You think its going to be too strong and make you gag more? No, it's not. Black pepper has no taste in water. It won't even upset your stomach. What it will do is shock your stomach and stop the vomiting immediately. Trying this trick will be the cheapest and most efficient way to stop you from being sick again.

Do you need to repeat this or is this a "take once and you're cured" cure? You mention about the "first glass".

The second glass of water is only to rinse the pepper from your mouth. You really do need to drink the pepper water fast and then rinse or the pepper starts getting stuck between your teeth.

If you do not mind chewing gum, chew it when your stomach is a bit queasy or upset. I recommend a mint type of gum, not the fruity type. I have been doing this for many years and it has always helped me.

When suffering from an upset stomach and you have to have something to drink, sip through a straw. Doing this will cut down on the air that gets to the stomach. I have noticed less vomiting when sipping instead of drinking.

This may sound strange, but many people have found taking a teaspoon or two of apple cider vinegar in a glass of water will help settle your stomach. A pinch of baking soda in with it will also lessen the tartness.

A very good idea for an upset stomach. Boil a 1/2 cup of rice with 2 cups water until done. Drain off liquid, let it cool and drink it.

I am looking for remedies for nausea. I am not pregnant. For about three months I have been queasy, and my mouth feels hot. What would you do? The Phenergan the doctor prescribed works for nausea, but my mouth gets so dry I couldn't summon up saliva to save my life!

When I was having chemo I used the anti nausea device that you use for motion sickness. I have seen them at CVS. I would wear them 24/7 for 4 to 5 days after the chemo. They have elastic and you put them on your wrist over a acupuncture point. Hope this works for you.

Cola Syrup in many drugstores always works for us and it's fairly cheap. We take a large tablespoonful every time we feel nauseated. I keep it on hand and cold in the fridge. With the economy acting strange and foods getting old sitting on the shelves longer folks not buying so much as before, AND the U.S. allowing third world countries to import/trade foods but without our inspection standards, we are all likely to have nausea more often! I get mine from Walgreens for about $3.59 for a 4-6 oz bottle. I don't believe CVS (govt. owned) stocks it. God bless and help you. You may need to drink more water. If the water is bad in your area, buy bottled water. You may also have an irritable colon OR stomach allergies to foods such as Corn and corn by-products

that can cause nausea when mixed with pepper of any color. Coffee in any form can cause nausea and anything acidic will only aggrevate it, in my experience. When this happens, I begin to eat mild

varieties of baby food for about two months, so that it can heal. I warm it and pour it over bread. It truly helps me to get well and stay healthy until I can eat regular food/determine what is making me sick that I'm eating OR DRINKING. Read ingredient labeling.

Watch out for Dextrose/Dextrin/Corn Sweeteners/Modified Food Starch/Ascorbic Acid, etc.

Trial and error will teach you what it is because it's usually what you have eaten recently and may be in several things you've eaten, or eat regularly. Watch for it in chips, cookies, candy, jello, some soups.

God bless and give you wisdom, knowledge and understanding. : )

I have discovered that at health food stores, they sell a ginger ale/ beer that work great. However you need to get rid of the carbonation by stirring it till flat. Also Kefir, which is liquid yogurt, not the Dannon stuff but a brand that is Life way Kefir or take the capsules that contain millions of "good Bacteria" that needs to get into the gut to kill the bad bacteria. No sodas that are cold or have bubbles. Take care

I take ginger for sick stomach. The kind you get in spice section in grocery store, just a pinch will do the job. I've used it for years. Keep it on hand all the time, good luck.

One of my sons has post viral gastropareisis, and my other son just got an h.pylori infection. They both experience nausea throughout the day. Both ginger capsules and oil of peppermint capsules work fabulously, even better than the ondanestron (Zofran) prescribed to my first mentioned son. We bought them on Amazon, about seven dollars each for 90 capsules. Well worth it! Both work for me as well. They're nice to have on hand when preparing tea isn't an option! (I like both peppermint and ginger tea but my boys do not.)

I have 2 tips for an upset stomach: A few drops of Angostura bitters in a glass of club soda. Adjust the bitters to taste and degree of upset stomach. It usually makes you burp after you drink it.
