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!

I tried 2 peppermint tea bags with a chunk of ginger, 1 tsp cinnamon powder, 1/2 tsp of clove powder and I tried cutting a small lime and adding salt and pepper and it worked after 24 hours of illness and not being able to eat anything I felt better instantly.
Thank you!

Citric Acid

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.

What about for someone with a hiatal hernia who cannot have anything acidic - what are the best nausea and vomitting cures?

Cold, Wet Compress

A cold, wet compress layed across the throat will dramatically reduce or eliminate nausea. It might even keep you from vomiting if you're on the edge.

This works best when nausea is first starting up. I work in a hospital and have used it many times while waiting for an RN to get medication to the patient. A lot of the time the nausea has passed and they only take the medication to keep it from coming back. My mother-in-law had a lot of sickness and she always found at least partial relief using this method.

This works, only we have always placed it on our foreheads. This has been used for generations in my family. A cold wet wash rag placed across the forehead. There's something about it cooling your body and settling the stomach. Done at the first sign of nausea it will often pass, or at least make it less frequent. Usually for us though it passes, except in the worst cases. I've used this with both of my kids dozens of times. It is my first line of defense when nausea strikes.

Go to the pharmacy and buy a bottle of coke syrup. It is an old fashioned recipe to cure nausea. 1 tbsp over some ice sipped slowly is usually all you need to say good riddance to nausea.

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!

Thank you for the post. An easier way to get the same result, especially from a child or adult that rejects the taste of raw onion, is to slice the onion as you would to put on a hamburger(about 1/4 inch thick)and place the onion slice under the arms of the person who is Experiencing Nausea/vomiting right next to armpit skin. In no time the symptoms will dissapate. There is NO Physical ailment That Nature's pharmacy cannot cure, with one way or the other... Believe That!

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!!!

Thank you!

This is an absolute keeper! After violently vomiting for 6 hours yesterday, I finally researched home remedies for my husband and came across this. He was quite hesitant with the onion juice, but I assured him that I thoroughly researched it and it'll work. Needless to say, within an hour he stopped vomiting and was actually able to get a whole nights' sleep (again, after violently vomiting from 9am-6pm last night). We're still not sure what made him sick (as I ate the same thing he did the day before), but will definitely refer this remedy to anyone who has this happen. Thank you sooo much!!

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.

This remedy worked like magic on 14 year old daughter. She vomitted several times. I tried giving here activated carbon with water, but she vomited it out after 5 to 10 minutes. Then I read your remedy of onion juice and tea. She drank it, and her vomitting stopped. I also read from another web site that plain water induces vomiting. So we should also refrain from drinking plain water, but drink tea instead.

Thank you!

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!!

Flat Coke

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 :)

General Feedback

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?

No. Don't disbelieve before you do more honest research (skip over any Med/ADA/pharm/etc. sites).

Parker, I can give my experience with some of these remedies. A couple of years ago I decided to commit some of them to memory to try the next time I was plagued with stomach troubles.

On one occasion I woke up with a terribly upset stomach. I remembered ACV and I quickly swallowed 2 tablespoons of it. Five minutes later I threw up, so negative on the ACV. I decided that I would not give up, though, and used some other remedies I read about here.

I drank hot black tea and ate spoonfuls of raw honey alternately every couple of hours throughout the day, and I did not throw up again. What is significant about this? Not once can I remember a time, going all the way back to my childhood, that I vomited only one time. My pattern has always been that I will vomit once and then approximately two hours later I will have a second bout. The black tea and honey prevented the second bout.

Since then there have been other times when I had that same horrific feeling of impending doom, and I immediately downed some raw honey, and then brewed some black tea as quickly as I could. I haven't had any problems since.

Granny Smith Apple

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!
