I had gotten typical gastroenteritis (stomach flu) from something I ate. In the morning I had chills, low grade fever, aches and classic diarrhea. I still dragged myself to work with my arsenal at hand.

1st hour - 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar in large glass of water. Drink.

3rd hour- Consumed 1 tablespoon organic unrefined coconut oil.

5th hour - 1 tsp food grade diatomaceous earth in large glass of water (well mixed).

7th hour - cup of black hot tea, tablespoon raw honey. Drink.

That night, I had no fever, no diarrhea- just a little achy and weak. I drank tons of water. By the morning I felt almost 100%. Wow!

My grandmother made this for her kids. Mom told us stories how they used to fake being sick just to get some because Grandma used to sweeten it with sugar. It knocked whatever they had right out of them she told me. Mother said Grandma would put onions on the back of the warming part of the stove and let the heat extract the healing properties and then sweeten it with sugar. Love old fashion remedies that keep your pocketbook intact.


Colloidal Silver

M to M,

I have used silver nanoparticles for stomach flu and it stops it cold in my limited experience, but I should add that I take a quart of uncapped particles right up front and a quart a day for three days after to make sure that I hit it hard and it doesn't rebound. The symptoms are gone within a few hours.

I have also had a herxheimer reaction on one occasion when it seemed a particularly rough stomach flu.

Colloidal Silver

April seems like an odd time of year for a stomach bug to be going around, but there has been a miserable stomach bug going around for a few weeks.

My 19 year old son was the first in our house to have it a few weeks ago. I was pretty horrified because my oldest son's wedding was coming up and it wasn't the best time for a stomach bug. I guess it never is! :)

I started to give everyone colloidal silver. I gave adults and adult sized children 1-2 Tablespoons of homemade colloidal silver (25 ppm) morning and evening on an empty stomach. I gave children 1 -2 teaspoons at the same times. I was hoping this would be a preventative.

I gave my sick son CS a couple of times. He was only sick for 12 hours. By the grace of God, no one else got sick before or during the wedding, which was last week. I kept giving everyone silver. We heard of friends and neighbors getting it. We had house guests immediately following the wedding and three of the four of them came down with the stomach flu while in my house. One of my children did get the stomach flu but it didn't last long for him.

I am pretty confident that the Silver did help to prevent the stomach flu and that it reduced the duration of the bug for those who had it. It is pretty rare that a stomach bug goes through my house and nearly everyone does not get it. We like to share around here. Haha.

I guess I can't know for sure that CS kept us well and kept the duration of sickness shorter, but it sure seems to be the case. I will be giving silver again next time a stomach bug goes around!

Lime Bicarbonate Drink

I woke up today feeling nauseous and really tired. I know a stomach bug was going around and was a little nervous! I decided to drink a lime bicarbonate drink. In a tall glass I put 1 Tablespoon of lime juice, 1/2 teaspoon of sodium bicarbonate (baking soda), 1/2 teaspoon of ginger (for the nausea), 2 drops of Stevia extract and water to fill the glass (probably 10 ounces.)

I sipped on this over the course of a half an hour or more. I used a straw to stir it often since the ginger would settle to the bottom.

Within an hour of finished it, I tested my pH. It was about 7.2, so slightly alkaline and in a good range for the time of day.

I have felt increasingly better all day.

Now that I have broken in to my pH test strips, I will probably be doing a lot of experimenting with them to see how different things affect my pH.

Rhus Tox, Probiotics, Vitamin D

Came down with a very unpleasant stomach flu. I used Rhus Tox, a homeopathic, for the aches which worked like a charm for up to a few hours at a time.

My wife fortunately bought me a probiotic juice. I slipped on this and fasted with several drops of vitamin D added with each cup I drank.

Along with a lot of sleep by the next day I felt all but over my symptoms and was able to return to work.


Black Tea

My husband has been throwing up about every 30 minutes for the past 5 hours. He asked for water - wouldn't stay down. I tried Gatorade - also wouldn't stay down. And that made me nervous because Gatorade has always worked! So I started browsing the web and came across this site. I found 1 bag of black tea in our pantry and made a small pot with it. I let it steep for a long while. I gave him a small mug and made him drink it in small sips. (I also had him slowly eat a tiny piece of crystallized ginger. ) He almost immediately threw up again. But! I think it was residual - from the Gatorade or something. The reaction was too quick. So I had him take just 1 more small sip and put a cold compress on his forhead. And he's finally asleep!! He's been alseep and quiet for just about 30 minutes now! Thank you!

I woke up around 4:30 am with a bad stomach ache and queasiness. i projectile vomited my entire supper all over the place. after vomiting undigested food several more times, my stomach didn't feel any better. i threw up all night long in the pail and today was vomiting huge amounts of tan liquid-every time I moved a muscle, I vomited. I tried the acv which immediately came back up. When i could move again, i made the tea with honey-have not thrown up in almost 2 hours, of course there's nothing in my stomach and i still feel achy and empty and a little sick but much better.

Sooooo glad I found this site! My four year old woke up this morning vomiting nothing but bile. He would have a sip of water and start again. He had bad stomach ache and whined and paced like a caged cat. No fever or anything else. After the second shower and the third change of clothes, he was crying and I desperately searched the internet for SOMETHING to help him. Yea, 1 TSP of raw honey (the only thing we use anyway) he not only stopped crying but within 4 mintues he was sound asleep. He slept 3 hours and awoke with no stomachache. I went ahead and gave him warm water and honey with clove cinnamon and nutmeg, to start out slowly and so far- so good!! THANK YOU!!!!

Hi,

A friend I visited told me of the stomach bug floating in her household today. I drove her to do some shopping, she shared my drinks bottle and within three hours I was feeling bad. Light-headedness, stomach pains, nausea. I read this thread and tried some pear cider vinegar that I make myself, with honey , ginger and hot water.

Within two swigs I was rushing for a bucket, brought up a litre of orange yuckies, and feel great!! This stuff is working alright and I thank you guys for your input, so here's mine too.

Flat coke worked wonders for me for the stomach flu. Just pour out a couple of glasses, allow to go flat. Sip at it and the vomiting and nausea should stop. Only take small sips.

So far so good, My 9 yr wasn't feeling well, I can always tell that something just isn't right. She had fallen asleep early was the first sign, then came the tossing and turning. Next thing I saw she was sitting straight up crying saying she threw up. She threw up a couple more times before falling to sleep. At 5am she woke up to pain in her tummy but not throwing up anymore. Worried that she would start again I looked for some help on line. I saw tea would help. I have all kinds of different teas. I made her the cinnamon tea added a little brown sugar, and I'm glad to say she's asleep.

ACV Works to Prevent Stomach Flu! Two weeks ago my four-year old contracted the stomach flu and one by one my other three children and wife fell victim to it. I thought ACV might help me stay well so twice a day I took two tablespoons of unpasteurized apple cider vinegar mixed with about 4 oz. of water and never got sick! Now, after finding your site I know for sure that it was the ACV that helped me. Next time we are exposed to a virus like this I will mix some honey with it to make it more palatable for my kids.
