    Normally I have an iron stomach.....

    But today I woke up at 6AM, 5 shades of green. I did have curry for dinner last PM, but this seems a bit harsh for that. Anyone know how to calm a tummy?

    The smell of pepto just makes it worse.

    Lactose intolerant, last April I spent 2 days in the hospital from an ice cream sunday (vomited 12 hours straight and then completely dehydrated). I know the only thing I've had in the last 24 hours was soy and coconut milks.

    Quote:Those are all really good, but I wanted to add REAL ginger to the list (as in Reed's gingerale that has real ginger in it or candied ginger roots) ginger is a very good tummy settler. And cinnamon is good too. Maybe you can buy some ginger root and cinnamon sticks and make a ginger & cinnamon tea with honey?

    Ginger, mint, lemon/lime soda, lots of water, weak sweetened tea.
    I can't take tummy meds, they usually make it worse for me.

    I live by ginger. Mint also helps me, but ginger is the best.

    if you can find real ginger ale, its hard to find in a regular grocery store. I also knew someone who swore by ginger but my grandfather swore by peppermint. I also know people who say coca cola works too.

    I've never tried this, but I saw it on "The Doctors". If you can stand it, try eating some burnt toast, or they said you could scrape the burnt part into a glass of water and drink it. They said it acts like charcoal and settles the stomach. I'm lactose intolorant too, it's rough. I'm not as bad now after having children, I can eat some icecream and cheese, but I cannot drink reg milk, either lactose free, soy, or rice milk. I get migraines, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea, so it can be miserable.
