My husband has been throwing up about every 30 minutes for the past 5 hours. He asked for water - wouldn't stay down. I tried Gatorade - also wouldn't stay down. And that made me nervous because Gatorade has always worked! So I started browsing the web and came across this site. I found 1 bag of black tea in our pantry and made a small pot with it. I let it steep for a long while. I gave him a small mug and made him drink it in small sips. (I also had him slowly eat a tiny piece of crystallized ginger. ) He almost immediately threw up again. But! I think it was residual - from the Gatorade or something. The reaction was too quick. So I had him take just 1 more small sip and put a cold compress on his forhead. And he's finally asleep!! He's been alseep and quiet for just about 30 minutes now! Thank you!
