Mrsj (Sydney) on 03/10/2014: 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!!
Elena (Corvallis, Or) on 01/06/2013: 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!
Jessica (Liberty, Mo) on 03/12/2011: 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! :(
Mel (Dawson City, Yukon Territory, Canada) on 02/18/2011: 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!
London (Sandusky, Ohio) on 08/08/2010: Honey mixed with a bit of cinnamon to make a paste helped my daughter stop vomiting. She's 3 years old.
Mother (New York, New York) on 12/11/2009: Hi, 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.
Leo (Monterey, Ca) on 11/28/2009: My six year old has been sick since yesterday, not being able to hold any liquids or food down. I saw the honey suggestion and remembered how my parents didn't have health care and used to do home remedies such as the use of honey, I tried it on the kid a walla! She finally resting. Thanks for the reminder.
Sydney (Denver, Colorado) on 03/20/2009: Tried the honey, I think it's actually helping! I mixed about a tablespood with some decaf green tea about an hour ago, and my stomach has settled a little. I suggest it.

Cynthia (Canton, OH, USA) on 01/26/2009: Our 5 y.o. was vomiting; of course water made it worse! My husband gave her honey, recommended from your site and... Walla! No more throwing up and no more tummy ache. In fact, the whole family took a teaspoon of honey as a preventative feature. thanks for the tip and so excited than an "earth" site like this is out there. Cindy
Doris (Orange County, CA USA) on 01/06/2009: Pediatrician always tells us wait 8 hrs minimum after our child's first vomit event due to stomach flu or virus (usually caught from school). Once, after 2 days vomitting, fever spikes and the Pediatric Nurse casually says 'oh, just wait another 8-12 hours to start BRATS' (aka bread, rice, applejuice, toast, white/clear soda), we couldn't take anymore of seeing our child so weak. Mom's old recipe of a taste of honey, stopped vomits right away. Soda-pop is always way too rich, can't keep it down. For child we give honey, then honey in hot water with a tiny pinch apple pie spices as other blogger mentions in this page - cinnamon, nutmeg, etc. For adult, we use same or hubby likes honey in hot water with 'chicken soup herbs' - I use parsley, sage, rosemary, thyme, sweet basil, or thinned chicken broth (same). Works great now, and don't get fever-bouts or dehydrated or weak like Dr's orders.
