Remedy: Nausea and Upset Stomach Remedy

After paying homage to the toilet bowl gods yesterday morning, I was informed of a nausea remedy I had never heard. Lo-and-behold! It worked! Or at least it helped enough that I figured it was worth sharing.

The recipe:

Approximately 1 cup of crushed ice
Approximately 1 cup Welch's Grape Juice
A pinch of baking soda

Pour the grape juice over the crushed ice, then add a pinch of baking soda and stir. SIP slowly as often as needed, but do not gulp.

I was feeling terrible enough when my daughter's teacher told me about this yesterday morning that I figured it was worth a try. While it didn't completely relieve the stomach upset, I was no longer jumping out of bed to run to the toilet.

I will remember that one!

I have been meaning to ask you if you have any clue how to get grease out of a silk shirt???

Damn. Grape juice actually makes me puke. I guess that would be kind of a deal breaker in trying to STOP puking. Did the teacher say you can substitute apple juice instead? LOL

You could always try it. I don't know what the magic of the remedy is, except that it helps keep you hydrated, keeps the blood sugar up, and keeps something in your stomach to help it from being too acidic.

Andrea said...

Oh, wait! Don't use apple juice! It can help loosen your bowels. What about pomegranate or something like that?

My mom always told me to drink grape juice when I was feeling was guaranteed to make me vomit almost immediatly. Maybe I was gulping instead of sipping...

I'm glad to hear someone else knew of this remedy.
