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.
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. You could even add a touch of honey to sweeten. But, the apple cider vinegar is the key. Organic apple cider with the "mother" is the best type. However, ordinary garden variety grocery store types will work.
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.
