Hi claire03! There are different reasons why we have upset stomach which may be due to dyspepsia, hyperacidity, diarrhea, intestinal flu, digestion, etc. Whenever I have dyspepsia, I drink warm milk. With regards to hyperacidity, my hubby take some antacids. For diarrhea, I really don't take any medicine because I was advised before that it is better to flush out all the toxins in the body and I just have to drink lots of water to prevent dehydration. I hope that helps somehow. Take care and have a nice day!

Ginger Ale is a favorite remedy of mine. A couple of times I used Earl Grey tea and that actually worked. For medicines I've done Alka and the Pepto, they've worked fine (worked for me on thursday). Make sure to get a lot of rest, and backtrack what you ate so you can avoid it in the future. Sure, it might be a one time fluke, but you never know, especially if you at something from the outside If that doesn't work, you should induce vomiting. Your body may well need a purge of the system to avoid something toxic. Usually you know its an extreme case if your temperature shoots up into the fever range. The induced vomiting will get rid of the unwanted stuff and you'll notice your headache clear up almost instantly. If you need to induce vomiting on a bad stomach try a few glasses of water in quick succession (this will also help with the liquid so you do not dry heave). The vomiting should trigger within a couple to a few minutes, sometimes its immediate. You can also try sticking your finger at the back of your tongue where it meets the throat (if possible). It might not be something you ate too, it could just be a nasty fever wreaking havoc on your system. Drink plenty of fluids, watch your temp (you don't have to lower it, many of the flu strains, viruses and malignant bacteria have trouble surviving/reproducing in an 100+ degree F environment), keep getting the right nutrition, take a rest for as long as your body needs. Hope you get better Claire ~-~Pro.

Any drink with citric acit say lemon, sprite, 7Up and battlenut can keep your stomach some low upset. To get full remedy medicine is only way. Sometime over-eating cause it and by vomiting it stop. Its a common disease and generally happen to all and I am not outside of this "all".
