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.

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!

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.)

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.


My daughter in law would chew gum when she felt a bit unwell while pregnant and it helped her.

I recently read that doctors recommend this to patients who had any type of digestive surgery.

As with everything, what works for one may not work for others. It is worth a try, especially when your stomach is a bit upset.

I recommend Stride gum. It has a good flavor and lasts a long time. It is also good for blowing bubbles. My young grandchildren are amazed and stare when I blow bubbles. I make it a point to chew gum when I see them.

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 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.
