Magmoo (Overland Park, Ks) on 05/22/2012Canned 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.
Black Tea for Vomiting
Amy (Surrey, Bc / Canada) on 01/30/2012I 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!!!
Peppermint Water for Upset Stomach, Nausea, Flu
Obeybunny (Santa Ana, California, United States Of America) on 12/29/2011Drinking 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.

Black Tea for Vomiting and Nausea
Debbie (Melbourne, Australia) on 04/03/2011I 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.
Honey for Vomiting
Jessica (Liberty, Mo) on 03/12/2011My 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! :(
Honey Stopped Vomiting
Mel (Dawson City, Yukon Territory, Canada) on 02/18/2011The 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!
Ec's Onion Juice Remedy for Vomiting
Ec (Indianapolis, In) on 01/19/2011My 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!
Kimber (Wassenaar, Netherlands ) on 01/04/2011I 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 :)
Honey and Cinnamon for Vomiting
London (Sandusky, Ohio) on 08/08/2010Honey mixed with a bit of cinnamon to make a paste helped my daughter stop vomiting. She's 3 years old.
Black Tea With Honey for Vomiting
Carin (St. Petersburg, Fl) on 03/30/2010My roommate woke up at 4:30 in the morning and began vomiting, which lasted for hours. I bought her some raw honey and black tea. I don't know if it was the honey, the tea, or both together, but she hasn't thrown up since and her stomach feels much better. She still has horrible body aches and can't leave bed yet, but the honey and the tea definitely made her stomach feel better. Thanks for all of the posts!
Ec's Onion Juice Remedy for Vomiting
Bk (New York, Ny) on 01/17/2010E.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!!!
Apple Cider Vinegar for Stomach Flu
Andslat (De Pere, Wi) on 01/03/2010Well...where do I start? First of all, please note that I am a huge believer in the benefits of ACV for some ailments. However, in prevention of the stomach "flu"...no way. I have been habitual user of ACV for the last six months. However, I just experienced the WORST flu ever! Out of my family of four, I had the most extreme symptoms. And in fact while I was vomiting, I thought I might die from the acid burning feeling traveling up my esphogus. I am laying off the ACV for now. If it works for you..great. Not for this gal anymore!
Re: Onion Juice Remedy for Vomiting
Richard (Puyallup, Wa) on 12/26/2009Have 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.
Raw Honey Worked for Daughter With Severe Vomiting
Mother (New York, New York) on 12/11/2009Hi, my daughter was vomiting for almost an hour and I used the advice from here and gave her 1 tsp of raw honey and that stopped the vomiting instantly. I then gave her another tsp when she woke up for water and she has been right as rain since then. I took one as per another poster and I am going to take another one soon because I am beginning to feel the onset of a stomachache. I have used other advice on the site for a bad cold and I have to say it was well appreciated.
