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.
