9. Rice Water

rice water for stomach flu

If you are suffering from diarrhea and a stomach ache due to the stomach flu, the best remedy is rice water. Rice water is a bland food that acts like a demulcent to help reduce inflammation of the stomach lining and alleviate pain.

  1. In an uncovered pan, boil one-half cup of white rice in six cups of water until the rice is tender.
  2. Strain and allow the water to cool.
  3. Add one-half teaspoon each of honey and cinnamon powder.
  4. Sip the warm rice water slowly every hour.
  5. Follow this remedy for a week.

10. Bananas

Both ripe and raw bananas have proven to be very helpful in the treatment of stomach flu. Bananas are easy to digest and contain a good amount of potassium and magnesium. These minerals are two of the electrolytes that the body, including the stomach, needs to function properly.

  • If you have diarrhea, mash one ripe banana and mix in one teaspoon of tamarind pulp and a pinch of salt. Eat this twice daily until you feel better.
  • Eat one or two ripe bananas during the day for a week to restore your digestive health.
  • You can also try raw banana soup as a bland food to help your body recover quickly.

Most of the symptoms of stomach flu will subside within 48 hours. If you are still not feeling well after a couple of days, see your doctor immediately to rule out a more serious condition.

    1. I tough the same. Garlic has many benefits but in my experience garlic is a preventative measure. To hard on an upset stomach in my opinion. Garlic upsets babies tummies that are breastfed when the Mom has very much garlic.

  1. I was pretty surprised to see garlic up there myself, or cinnamon. Lemon and peppermint are good, though.

  2. eating peach yogurt is really helping my stomach cramps! never would have thought that yogurt would help. next I’m trying a banana!

  3. || I have heard about ginger and cinammon at other sites. Still, garlic and vinegar make perfect sense; you can actually clean with the latter two(granted, you must put sweet smelling cleaners with both and use only a little vinegar due to the acid wearing away your floor or whatever). But, garlic is completely natural and vinegar can be naturally created; I believe. So, God seems to be in the disinfectant business. Anyway, if you can use them as disinfectant agents and they are widely edible, then why not give them a try? Here’s a note, though, vinegar appears to weaken you and if you take it, compensate for this factor.

    1. Garlic, onion, and vinegar are all natural disinfectants and Antibacterials and antivirals. Garlic and onion ate bug staples in my household. Nit only do we cook with them, but i will cut an onion in half and leave on a plate in the center of the house to absorb all bacteria and viruses. Imagjne yo my surprise when i ended up sick, not an iunce of inikn or gatluc to be found in the house!

  4. I’ve tried garlic and raw Apple cider vinegar ..I cut the small clove of garlic in pieces and swallow whole .it works great and so does the Apple cider ..

  5. Drink small amounts of water a little at a time, just enough to stay hydrated get as much sleep as possible, wash your hands frequently. It should pass in about 72 hours.
