Default Stomach flu remedy

So my wife is into pretty much everything homeopathic, essential oils included. Well the last couple days I've had a nasty stomach flu and when I get a flu I go down hard, black out the windows and tell anybody who so much as whispers they may die! My loving wife forced me to put a couple drops in some water and it would help, I figured I can't even keep water down so why not. It didn't make me better but it stopped the nausea and I was able to keep down Tylenol to control my fever. This particular essential oil is Digize and can be found under several different brands. I don't normally get behind the weird stuff but for nausea this stuff really works.

I don't turn my back on Western medicine and I do take meds that keep me healthier than if I didn't take those meds.

That being said, I also firmly believe in natural remedies and will try some of those first before I go to pharmaceuticals. I like to talk to people from other cultures and learn what they do. I've gotten some great ideas that seem to work.

Also try apple cider vinegar: make SURE it is raw, unfiltered (which contains the mother), and organic.

Kinda like the bedroom antics of that member that just stopped back in here....

Ginger works great with nausea. I sometimes have problems with it in the mornings and a ginger candy clears it up after just a few minutes. It's pretty great.

Some of those remedies work & they're safer than drugs.

Just a FYI, there is no such thing as "stomach flu." Actual flu is a respiratory illness that usually involves high fever & lasts at least 2 - 4 weeks. What you have is likely food poisoning - especially if it only lasts a few days.

I don't know what it was but my ribs hurt from throwing up so much. I will say the Digize was a full 50% improvement, and when you can't even hold down water that's a lot.

Just don't take ELAX and Sleeping pills at the same time!
