Hi, my grandma used to make us drink strong black tea each time we had the flu, as it would stop vomiting and help settle the stomach. I have tried it with green tea as well and it works the same, and usually you don't need more than a few sips before it starts working. Now I don't even wait for the vomiting to start--I go straight for the tea upon first symptoms of the flu.

I have also used this remedy for severe menstrual cramps and diahrrea and those times when painful gas gets in the way of elimination. One time I even tried it for a headache and it went away. Works wonders!

That worked great! I am a single dad, with a 6 years old. He had been throwing up for 24 hrs, just sleep and throw up..., could not hold down anything. I was ready to take him to the doctor or emergency room when I found this site. I gave him a big spoon of raw honey that I bought a few months back from an independent honey maker, and gave him black tea. He went back to sleep, and after 1 hour he was up talking, back being himself... then I gave him another spoon and more tea. He has been playing nicely, very energetic. I can't believe that he has not had any real food for 1 day and 1/2, and just 2 spoons of raw honey got him back up and running! And I can't believe that he did not throw up, as he would vomit even a spoon of water! Thanks!!
