I have been using charcoal for approx 14 yrs. In our home it has been used for nausea/vomiting; diarrhea; upset stomach; belching; heart burn; gas; indigestion; poultices over painful areas on different parts of the body; pasty poultice over insect bites..over the stomach in a poultice for fevers.. As a nurse, I highly recommend it to all.

Well...where do I start? First of all, please note that I am a huge believer in the benefits of ACV for some ailments. However, in prevention of the stomach "flu"...no way. I have been habitual user of ACV for the last six months. However, I just experienced the WORST flu ever! Out of my family of four, I had the most extreme symptoms. And in fact while I was vomiting, I thought I might die from the acid burning feeling traveling up my esphogus. I am laying off the ACV for now. If it works for you..great. Not for this gal anymore!
Apple cider vinegar cures the flu....When I had the flu growing up my Mother always had me drink a tea she made from 2 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar 2 Tablespoons Honey and 6oz hot water. It would immediately stop vomitting and help with diarrhea and also helped with a fever... The honey also relaxes stomach muscles and helps with your digestive track along with all the wonderfull things the ACV does.... As a child I didn't really appreciate the taste of this tea my Mother made, but as an adult it tastes pretty good. I swear by it now!!
I have been using Apple Cider Vinegar now since religiously reading article on your site almost a year now. My whole family recently came down with stomach flu and myself, and my son age 5 who loves vinegar drank a spoonfull of ACV every few hours and overcame the illness within 24 hours. I did not vomit. my son only vomited once, that was before he took the ACV then he made an instant recovery. My husband and daughter who refused to take it and thought I was mad suffered for days with crippling stomach pains and unable to keep any food down...
Thank god for your site wish I knew about it along time ago. It could have saved me so much illness.
I read Dr. D.C. Jarvis's book about folk medicine around 1960 and began to give my children apple cider vinegar whenever they got the stomach flu. It always worked. I believe he was the one who said that the vinegar changed the ph balance in the intestinal tract so that the virus couldn't live and reproduce.
I had read that ACV helped with food poisoning (luckily haven't needed to test that!) and wondered if it would help with stomach flu. In February my daughter came home from school vomiting one day and I started to feel nauseous myself 2 days later. I immediately took 1 teaspoon ACV in as little water as I could tolerate and better better. Five minutes later the nausea came back and I took more ACV. This sequence went on for an hour or two and then the nausea was gone and I didn't vomit at all!! I'd like to add that when my daughter was 2 years old, she was having a temper tantrum at my mother-in-law's house (in a farming village in northern Greece) and an elderly neighbour tried to give her some vinegar in water to drink to cure her of the "evil eye" which they believe in. My daughter just pushed the cup away so we couldn't test the theory!! Thanks for all your info!
Hi I'm Ieo 23- I'm suffering from this ailment I have vomiting thick, acidy saliva over a year now.. I didn't go to the doctor yet I wonder this is true about this baking soda and apple cider.. Almost every day I got to vomit sticky foams and then I feel numb in my chest.. Can you gave some advice on this...
thank you more power.....
My mother's acidic stomach caused her much vomiting. I started her on the 2 Tbps ACV 1/4 tsp baking soda in water 3x per day. Helped immediately!
Black Tea with Honey for Vomiting... This is the only thing that I could keep down and eventually stop vomiting. Still have the aches, chills, and fever, but the gut-twisting agony is over so I can finally rest. Thanks for posting this- it's a lifesaver!
I had the worst stomach flu for three days with incessant vomiting and dizziness and was sweating and feeling almost like I should be hospitalized. I also had severe diarrhea on and off. I looked up your "how to stop vomiting" website with the thought that probably nothing would actually stop it at the point it was quickly progressing too. I was wrong. I added a slice of ginger and honey to the black tea and it took several sips and probably half and hour but I have NEVER seen anything like it!!! Seriously even gravol couldn't touch it, or ginger tea by itself. Thanks!!!
I had a bad migraine yesterday and was throwing and feeling very nauseas. I couldn't keep food or drink down (even water). I checked here to see what people recommended and tried honey by itself (did not work), also tried the ACV and baking soda (did not work). I finally tried the black tea suggestion. I put two tea bags of black tea in hot water and let it sit for a short while. I sipped it slowly and did not vomit again and the nausea seemed to go away as well.

My daughter was throwing up and could not even keep water down. I made her some black tea and added a teaspoon on raw German honey to it. She has been sipping it and the vomiting has stopped. She was throwing up so bad that nothing was coming up at all. She is also telling me that she feels so much better. I am so glad that I found this site!!!!!

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!
My roommate woke up at 4:30 in the morning and began vomiting, which lasted for hours. I bought her some raw honey and black tea. I don't know if it was the honey, the tea, or both together, but she hasn't thrown up since and her stomach feels much better. She still has horrible body aches and can't leave bed yet, but the honey and the tea definitely made her stomach feel better. Thanks for all of the posts!
