Anti-Nausea Stomachache Cubes

If you’ve got the flu you know how hard it is to keep anything down. Here are some herbal ice cubes that can be easily prepared at home to help battle the nasty bug that’s running rampant through your home.

You’ll Need:

Make a very strong mug of tea using 1 c. boiling water & 1 peppermint tea bag. Allow the tea to steep for at least 10 minutes. Add cranberry juice and bitters, stirring well. Pour the tea mixture into an ice-cube tray and place in the freezer until frozen.

To use, suck or chew up to 3 ice cubes per hour.

The peppermint is quite soothing and bitters is well known to calm an upset stomach. The ice cubes are considerably easier to keep down than glassfuls of liquids and also works well to get rid of nasty fever breath, (I’m sure you moms out there know EXACTLY what I mean by “Fever breath!”)

Cautionary Disclaimer:It goes without saying, but Call your doctor if the vomiting lasts more than 24 hours or is severe.

  1. I unfortunately did not see this until after my son got over the stomach flu, but I did run across something that I would like to share. My son’s stomach flu subsided within 24 hrs and mine was stopped in its tracks after using activated charcoal tablets. For my son I broke two capsules open and added two teaspoons of water then mixed it up.

    The process was messy, but he said it had no flavor. He took 8 tablets (4 doses) before all flu symptoms had resolved, I caught mine early and only had to take two capsules (1 dose) before I was feeling healthy again. I had everybody else take two capsules each as a precaution and this is how our holiday was saved.

    *** Taking activated charcoal 2 hours before or 1 hour after taking other medications will nullify the other medication as charcoal will bond with it and it will not get absorbed by your body.

      We use activated charcoal for Loads of things – I never travel without a bottle of it. But, I’m not sure why you made a slurry, you could just give him the capsules with a glass of water & it would have worked just as well.
