Diarrhea (ailment) and Cinnamon (cure): My boyfriend had a stomach virus and was in awful pain. He was throwing up and using the bathroom around every 5-10 minutes. It was to the point where he had nothing left to expell but water and bile. I finally convinced him to drink a tea mix I made. I used- 1 cinnamon stick, broken up with a scissor a big pinch of ground ginger pinch of ground mustard a pinch of ground cloves (or 2 whole) I let it steep from boiling to drinkable temperature. He started getting better almost instantaneously. It stopped not only the diarrhea, but also the throwing up and the incredible pain. I never saw anything work so fast!

a slightly rounded tablespoon of citric acid dissolved in a tall glass of luke warm milk taken orally whilst head tilted back. Cures severe vomiting. It really really works. This home remedy has been passed through my family for generations and now I think it's time to pass it on to other families.

Cut a lemon or /lime into halves or slices, sprinkle about 1/2 to 3/4 teaspoon of salt and same amount of black pepper. roast/ oven bake/direct on gas fire/ barbecue/ cover it and microwave for 40 seconds, salt and pepper side on top till bubbley juice comes out. Let it cool down but don't let it go completely cold, it should be hot. Suck with the pulp direct from the lemon slices/halves as the peel has secreted some juices that you need. Same method can be used with sour oranges or tangerines.
This recipe came from my mum who used it on all her kids as natural alternative which would not give any side effect, to cure headaches, migrains, cough and colds, flu, as well as when someone feels sick as if they want to vomit. This is a ideal alternative medicine for diabetics and ideal for everyone as you don't have to go shopping, everything you'll have in your home when you have any of these problems. All of us brothers and sisters have been using this all these years, may be it might help someone who wants to try natural alternatives which would not give them any side effects especially if they are diabetics.

My 6 year old woke up vomiting from a sound sleep & continued non stop for about 20 minutes before I looked up this remedy. My hubby juiced an onion with a garlic press & just picked out the big pieces of onion. He drank the onion juice down like a champ & then sipped some black tea for a few minutes. He just went back to bed as if nothing had happened. Amazing!

E.C.'s onion juice remedy worked for me! I got what I assume to be food poisoning from sushi and couldn't stop vomiting. I would vomit every 20 minutes for over 4 hours. Finally, my boyfriend was looking up remedies to stop it and he found this one so he went out and got the simple ingredients and it worked! He had to force me to take it because I was so nauseous but I'm glad he did! Within in minutes I felt better! It burned really bad going down but it was worth it. I was good for another couple of hours when I started to feel like vomiting again, so he made me some more, I took it and went to bed. Great remedy!!!

Have a 10 yr old son. Started vomiting at 4 in the am. Turned to dry heaves/bile and continued about every half-hour for the next 6 hours.
Tried the onion juice & peppermint tea. It did not work. He retched it back up within about 30 seconds. I would not recommend the onion.

Hi my brother had been vomiting severely for 8 hours and had vomited 5-6 times. Before we went to the doctor as a last ditch effort we decided to try the onion juice peppermint tea remedy and wait for an hr. IT WORKED! he said it tasted terrible and burned like fire but it was worth it! Thank you so much for the remedy!!! (also we used chamomile, mint and sage combo in the tea :)) thanks again

I've had a stomach bug for the last couple of days, feeling worse today. I took pepto bismo, did nothing. I tried the onion juice and can finally keep down liquids, even feeling hunger. Very thankful for this remedy!

I found onion liquid juice in the local grocery store, in the spice and extract section, it would save alot of time and tears. and yes it is working!!

I had been vomiting for a good 5 hours every 10-15. My mom called my grandmother and she said that if you stir all the bubbles out of the glass of coke it will settle your stomach. Only take 1 or 2 sips at first. I worked like a charm for me :)

I'm confused. Everyone who swears by a vomiting cure (be it ginger, black tea, ACV, etc) have all been vomiting multiple times and for hours. Then they take "x" cure and say "Wow, it worked instantly! " But isn't it more likely that the virus or food poisoning ran its course after so long? Isn't that a more likely explanation than any of these remedies working so miraculously?

I'm Sicilian as is my friend who recommended this natural cure for vomiting/nausea. Both our great grandmothers were natural healers. If you are vomiting or Nauseous eat a green apple/Granny Smith. You must consume the peel, as the remedy is believed to be in the peel. I've used this and it worked within 20 minutes. I think it may be a lot easier to keep down than charcoal or onion juice, although I use onion juice for a lot of other things.

My 3 yr old daughter was vomiting for hours and had nothing left in her stomach. I gave her a heaping teaspoon of honey. She vomited again. I gave her another teaspoon of honey. After about half an hour (no vomiting) she said her tummy felt better and she went to sleep.
When she woke this morning she had a square of peanut butter toast and had a small vomit afterwards. I gave her another teaspoon of honey. Then she felt good enough to eat the rest of the toast and seems to be nearly back to normal now. She has never had a vomiting bug before but I'm amazed how well this worked. I wouldn't hesitate to use this again. Next time I would use it straight away!!

My son was suffering from a terrible stomach virus and was throwing up at least once an hour all day. He could not keep any liquids down, even when he took only small sips at a time. I read on here to give him a spoonfull of raw honey, so I did. He threw up one more time after taking it, and I gave him another spoonful. After that, he stopped vomitting and returned to normal! It worked like a charm!
