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!!


Peach Syrup

Hey Joanne!

If the peach syrup doesn't stay down, you might consider the homeopathic remedy Nux Vomica. Try the 30C potency - 3 pills after each episode. Ideally you do not handle the pills directly - just tip them from the bottle into your mouth/under your tongue. You may need 3-4 doses in about an hours time.

I was doing a Google search and came across this ingenius post! SO GLAD to see someone confirm it. When I talked to my doctor about waves of nausea (likely caused by combo of nerves, stress, and newly introduced Rx), the DOCTOR said, try some syrup from canned peaches. I was really surprised, but hey, I thought - I got nothin to lose here, except some of my guts! So, I have tried it, and so far, so good! ALSO -- there is always the excellent pharmacy remedy called E------l. It is a sugary tasting syrup, not all that pleasant, but it WORKS. I have always known this, since I was a kid.

Black Tea with Honey for Vomiting... This is the only thing that I could keep down and eventually stop vomiting. Still have the aches, chills, and fever, but the gut-twisting agony is over so I can finally rest. Thanks for posting this- it's a lifesaver!

When I found this I went to make some. Started to feel like I was going to throw up again by the time it was made, drank it so far it's worked and settled my stomach so far but its only been 10 minutes. Hopefully it keeps working. Can't stand this especially when I have to stay home from work cuz I also didn't sleep at all last night.

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!

I'm not here to comment on anything though it does sound like a good Idea , but I've been vomiting non stop for 11 hours and anything I drink nor eat I vomit out is there any other way of stopping this??

I have had the norovirus for 2 days now and your post is the first thing that has made me laugh and feel a little better! I am no longer alone on trying to sleep on the bathroom floor and praying for death to take me quickly!!! Thank you for your glorious humour, a remedy in itself :)

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.

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

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?

Peach Syrup

Canned peaches in heavy syrup. Our Omi from Germany swears by it. I thought it was crazy, but we have settled our stomachs so many times from it. There must be some kind of enzymes in peaches that kill off viruses or bad bugs in general or something. Towards the end of a bout of vomiting (aka: barfing, kissing the porcelain god, retching mercilessly while throwing your back out (true story-had to go to the chiropractor after I got better), puking up your guts, upchucking, enjoying your potato salad or chicken spedini a second time, trying to doze on the bathroom floor wishing for death, moaning, wondering why you always puke in the middle of the dark night, wearing 4 layers of sweat suits and a robe to warm up only to rip them off in a sweat 5 minutes later) from a stomach flu, food poisoning or allergy; sip little spoonfuls of the peach syrup. Take it easy at first and try one spoonful at a time to see how your stomach handles it. If you throw it up, wait a little while longer until your body settles more. Try another one spoonful and wait until you tummy stops gurgling and growling before you sip another spoonful. When a spoonful doesn't cause rumbles any more, then you're ready for a whole sip or even little bites of peach. When you add an increment, wait a bit to see if your stomach is ready to handle it before putting in more.

Peaches are also good for when your stomach is way so empty after you've heaved-ho'd, walked the plank and it's in-side-out. Nothing wants to stay down, no food or drink feels good and your stomach is all acidy, hurting. Maybe you even have dry heaves. Maybe you are empty, starving, very sure there could not possibly be any bad bugs or body organs left. You want to try something, but scared to anger Montezuma's Revenge one more time. Peach juice is calming. It seems to relax the stomach, calm it's nerves, settle the acid and set a base in the stomach to get it back in order. Maybe peaches have some sweet electrolytes to give you enough energy to crawl to the fridge and make a nice baked potato with only salt on it. I jokingly tell myself that peach botulism is botoxing my stomach into behaving nice and smooth. I know this is in no way true, but something in peaches does seem to help.

Any brand is fine, but not the light kind. It has to be the regular sugar, heavy syrup, kind. I like to get a more well known brand so I'm sure it will taste good to my kids, but I imagine a store brand would be just fine too. Open up a can and pour some of the juice in a cup for the poor soul. Save the peaches for later. I try to put off refridgerating the juice since room temperature seems to feel better.

Peaches may prevent barfing too. I have seen our entire family puke for days while my daughter is unfazed at all, slightly nauseaus or maybe throw up only once. I always stock up on a few cans every winter in preparation, so she would eat a bunch of canned peaches. We didn't. It happened nearly every year. She barely got sick, if at all. Maybe she had a better immune system, but I know she just gobbled up peaches every time!

I have had a couple bouts of food poisoning before. I know that feeling when my stomach bloats up, feels like absolutely nothing is digesting and it gurgle-gurgles constantly and loudly. I used peach juice to calm things down. This was before I found ACV and you all at EC (thankyouverymuch! ). ACV works too, but peach juice is a tasty alternative to try for kids who won't drink the sour ACV drink.

Cold, Wet Compress

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.

Holy smokes! My 8 year old son has been vomiting and dry heaving for the last 7 hours. He started begging me to call our doctor but it is Sunday so then he asked me to "Google" what might help. Found this site and tried making him a big mug of black tea with two bags. He just told me that he has never felt better and no throwing up for the last hour and I hope that it lasts! *fingers crossed*

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.

Posted by Octobergirl (Statesville, Nc) on 01/31/2012

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.

I had the worst stomach flu for three days with incessant vomiting and dizziness and was sweating and feeling almost like I should be hospitalized. I also had severe diarrhea on and off. I looked up your "how to stop vomiting" website with the thought that probably nothing would actually stop it at the point it was quickly progressing too. I was wrong. I added a slice of ginger and honey to the black tea and it took several sips and probably half and hour but I have NEVER seen anything like it!!! Seriously even gravol couldn't touch it, or ginger tea by itself. Thanks!!!

I have to say- this helped IMMEDIATELY. I know tea/honey makes a sore throat better- but I never thought to try it for vomitting/diarea... until today. Everyone at work, and at home has been fighting off a stomach bug/flu... today I stayed home cause I wasn't feeling good- and I was right. I coudn't stay out of the bathroom for 3 hours...

Finally a dragged my laptop in with me and between bouts, I found this site. I had black tea and I had raw organic honey.... So I forced myself into the kitchen brewed a strong cup and added two tablespoons of raw organic honey- and instantly the vomiting stopped. It has been about 45 minutes since I finshed the tea, and besides a little bit of gurgling in My tummy- I'm feeling much better. Now I am going to try to take a nap! :)

YEA! I was so sick with vomiting and diarhea. I had dry heaves from 1:15 A. M. - 7 A. M. (which is when I found this site). I was worn out from the dry heaves - my biggest break between episodes had been 25 minutes. I obviously had nothing else to vomit, just froth. After I found this site, my husband placed 3 tea bags in hot water for me - I was anxious to try it and drank a sip - I vomited immediately, but then let it steep for a bit until it was strong - then I drank a sip. No vomiting. Then another sip. This COMPLETELY and IMMEDIATELY elimated my dry heaves. I layed down, drank one or two more sips - then slept. I am now telling everyone about this remedy. It would have been wonderful to know about this earlier. THANK YOU!


Peppermint Water

Drinking cold peppermint water works instantly for me whenever I get motion sickness or nausea from eating bad food. Also, whenever I'm chained to the bathroom because of the flu, peppermint water helps to keep me from vomiting.

One or two drops of Peppermint extract in water. The ratio of peppermint to water really doesn't matter- I generally like my peppermint water strong (1 drop of peppermint in 3 table spoons of water), but everyone else in my family prefers diluted stuff (2 drops in 6 ounces). Nevertheless, it will still work.

Peppermint extract is available in the spice section of most of the grocery stores I go to.

For Vomiting it works very fast, put a teasponn full in juice, let it sink to the bottom before mixing and drink. My daughter has various reactions to Chemo Drugs and Charcoal has been a life saver.

Also make sure you stay near the toilet or have your sick bag handy, Charcoal Vomit is terrible, it may take up to 3 doses of Charcoal before you can keep it down but it is very effective and will get rid of the Nausea at the same time.

I give black tea a YEA for eliminating vomiting. Thank GOD I found this site and suggestion. I have food poisoning with vomiting and diarrhea for 12 hours now. It was so painful to vomit because there is NOTHING in my body and it was literally gut wrenching pain. Nothing over the counter worked so I asked my husband to go buy some black tea. Well he found 1 tea bag from a hotel or some odd place that I had stashed in the kitchen. I drank it plain and strong and it worked immediately. Now I only have diarrhea and much milder stomach cramps but the painful vomiting is over.

NEA Unfortunately this remedy did not work for me or my daughter. We both had been vomiting for about 5 hours when I decided to look up ways to stay hydrated and came across this site. I brewed two black tea bags in one cup of water for about 7 minutes till very dark. We each took a few sips for a little while then tried to rest. Both of us continued to have stomach cramps and while I have not vomited again I still feel like I may, and my daughter has continued to vomit.

I agree with all the YEA's for the black tea. I have never heard of this. My mom told me to go get Emuterol to stop the cycle of vomiting, but I just couldn't get out of the house. I read these posts and looked in our cabinet and we just happened to have Lipton black tea flavored with vanilla. I honestly think it has been in there for 5 years. Anyway, I sipped down one coffee mug of it slowly and was able to calm my stomach a bit and keep from throwing up. Next step - trying to eat and I am starting with the BRAT diet ...

I had a bad migraine yesterday and was throwing and feeling very nauseas. I couldn't keep food or drink down (even water). I checked here to see what people recommended and tried honey by itself (did not work), also tried the ACV and baking soda (did not work). I finally tried the black tea suggestion. I put two tea bags of black tea in hot water and let it sit for a short while. I sipped it slowly and did not vomit again and the nausea seemed to go away as well.

My 2 year-old started vomiting an hour ago. It was on her birthday minutes before her birthday party, so I really wanted to help her feel better. I tried 2 teaspoons of raw honey. She ate it and said it was yummy, but it came up 5 minutes later, and she has vomitted 4 times since then in the last 30 minutes. Sadly, this remedy did not work for us! :(

The honey worked fabulously for me! After constant vomitting and diarrhea for over 8 hours I slowly sucked on a large tablespoon of raw honey, went back to sleep and haven't had symptoms since. I have been able to keep down water and been sipping on peppermint tea. What a fabulous site and such a lovely remedy! Thanks!

Ahah I woke up with the stomach flu at 2am that my sister, Mom, &nd niece all had earlier this week. I have a huge fear of throwing up, so I decided to look for remedies so I wouldn't, &nd I tried the Black tea thing. I was sipping at it for an hour, but it work AHMAZINGLY! I didn't throw up at all. Only bad thing was I couldn't sleep until after 7:30am, and then I only slept for an hour. Plus I couldn't sleep the night before, so that didn't help either. But the tea thing did workk, ((:

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!

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!

I'm so glad I found this site!! Woke up at 7:00 this morning with terrible stomach cramps and vomiting. The pharmacist recommended Cola Syrup to stop the nausea, but she didn't have anything for the vomiting. Once I found the website, I decided to settle on the black tea. I just brewed three bags of tea in a 12oz cup nice and strong and sipped it untill it was gone. The bitterness really didn't bother me at all. Shortly after finishing the tea, I fell asleep and woke up at noon feeling no stomach upset. It's wonderful! I recommend this to everyone.


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 :)

When I start vomiting, it usually takes over 24 hours to go away. I have the dry heaves and then stomach bile that comes up and its a truly horrible experience. I tried the black tea with a spoonful of honey last night, and it worked!! It was pretty rough going down, but well worth it. I used 2 large tea bags in just a cup of water and a teaspoon of honey. This is the only thing that has ever stopped my vomiting other than phenegren.

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!!
