Remedy for Stomach Flu

June 14, 2008

Stomach Flu (Viral Gastroenteritis) is an intestinal infection caused by several different viruses. Highly contagious, Stomach Flu (Viral Gastroenteritis) is the second most common illness in the United States.

It causes millions of cases of diarrhea each year.

Remedy for stomach flu tip 1 – Bananas is actually known to soothe stomach, as they neutralize the acids that actually lead to stomach upset. Hence they are known to soothe diarrhea.

Remedy for stomach flu tip 2 – Drinking Ginger tea or just chewing a piece of ginger can relieve symptoms of stomach upset. As they are easily digestible, it also helps in easing diarrhea.

Remedy for stomach flu tip 3 – Drinking Peppermint tea helps in calming the stomach muscles.

Remedy for stomach flu tip 4 – Drink half a glass of water to which half a teaspoon of baking soda is added. This relieves the heartburn or acid indigestion. This can be repeated several times a day.

Tip 5 – Bananas, rice, applesauce, toast, tea, and yogurt. The same effect for the first four. Never use tea with caffeine. Green tea is great and soothes the tummy. Yogurt helps to halt the flow, if you get my drift.

Tip 6 - Peppermint is also a tea that is rich in tannins. The menthol content also makes it essential for dealing with any excess flatulence that may accompany the stomach flu. If you have both a stomachache and excess flatulence, feel free to combine the chamomile and peppermint together in one cup of tea.

Tip 7 – The best natural remedy for stomach flu is ginger. If you have ginger-ale, drink small sips of it when it is semi-flat. Give your stomach a chance to rest between sips. If you just want to throw up already and get it over with, drink some club soda (not flat)

Ginger Supplements

A traditional remedy for stomach upset, ginger helps to eliminate gas and soothes the intestinal tract. It can be taken as a supplement or eaten with meals.

The pickled form, which often accompanies dishes at Asian restaurants, is believed to offer at least as many of the health benefits as the fresh form. It is much in vogue as a great home remedy for flatulence and colic pain or disturbances. Ginger has also been used as one of the most important ingredients of some anti-narcotic preparations.
