A stomach bug has been going around my department at work – and yesterday was my turn. I came home from work early and took it easy all afternoon. I also employed some of my favorite home remedies to cure an upset stomach.
- Before I left work, I tried a cup of tea. If you’re a regular reader, you may know that I think tea may be the cure for anything – but in this case it didn’t work.
- On the way home, I stopped at McDonald’s and got a Coke. As a teenager I worked at McDonald’s and I knew people who swore that the mix at McDonald’s would cure an upset stomach – and although I don’t know for sure if it was the nap or the Coke, it worked!
If you’re past napping or Coke as a cure for an upset stomach, my Dad swore by stuff called Emetrol – there are store versions of it at Walmart or Walgreens. If you’re sick at your stomach and home remedies don’t work, I can almost guarantee Emetrol will. Next time you’re feeling nauseated, give it a try!
