How To Cure An Upset Stomach ASAP

Hey girl hey. And boy.

As you may know, I have a PhD in medical school so here’s the tea.ย ๐Ÿ˜‚ย Okay that’s not true but I think I’ve scared myself enough with Google searches telling me I have cancer that I can pass on the advice and steps to you. Last Sunday, literally half our household had our stomachs flip from the change in weather. It started off with me being super moody and then I started feeling very weird. I didn’t have an appetite for anything and had the hardest time sleeping. I wanted so hard not to throw up but I ended up throwing up three times that night. Any time I’d eat anything or even have a sip of water, I’d throw up.

It seriously sucked but I was so so thankful that I only had to face this for 2 days. Others have to go through far worse pain for years due to illnesses so really, it just opens my eyes to how precious our physical health is. So if you’re going through an upset stomach, just know that it’ll pass and it’s just here to remind you of how lucky you are…hopefully that is, if you don’t actually have stomach cancer.

Anyways, let’s just get right into the tips.


 

  1. REST

This is probably the most important one but give. yourself. a. break. Do not dismiss it as something small and do not leave the house. Just stay home and sleep- literally. I have a few subtips under this like:

  • Sleep on your back or right side
  • Have a heater in your room if you’re feeling cold or a fan if you’re feeling hot (I get the struggle of having a fever but feeling cold)
  • Have a bag beside you in case you feel nauseous (I ignored it and puked in the washroom though)

2. Be Wise With What You Eat

So I saw this diet called the BRAT diet where you eat Bananas, rice, apple sauce and toast to help with nausea. I tried toast and bananas, and it seemed okay at first, but I ended up throwing everything up. So if you’re at the peek point of throwing up – please just stop eating. The next day I woke up and ate a green apple and maaan that was the best apple I’ve ever tasted in my life. Honey is amazing too. Make sure you stick to fruits and veggies and hopefully, you’ll be fine. Plus, if you throw it up too, at least you know what works and doesn’t.

3. Get Them Fluids Gurl

I know this is the hardest thing ever but fluids matterrrr. Your body will go nut if it’s dehydrated. For me, I find it easier to drink water from small coffee cups because I couldn’t drink in large portions or else I’d throw up again. And at one point, I threw up pure water but that’s life. My mom made this amazing veggie soup and I made peppermint tea for myself in the morning. Don’t forget water and hot beverages – those help the most.

4. Medication

For my medication, I took:

  • Gas X – great for bloated stomachs.
  • Tylenol Extra Strength – relieves headache and fever.
  • Advil Ibuprofen – relieves pain and reduces fever.
  • Lifebrand Ibuprofen – relief of minor aches.
  • Tums – chewable mints to refresh breath smell and soak up excess stomach acidity.

You don’t need to take as much as I did but I definitely recommend taking medication to speed up your recovery.

 

5. Pray and Have Patience

Honestly, reaching out to Allah for a faster recovery and being really thankful for what I have helped my wellbeing so much more. It was almost like a miracle because when I woke up for school the next day I was completely fine. Being sick is a test and some tests are longer than others. Patience is key and just know, that time will heal. Cheesy but true.ย ๐Ÿ˜‚

    Great post! Thanks for the tips. I barely ever get sick or throw up but I got really sick last month for like 3 days which was just prolonged because I didnโ€™t eat. I think you need to stick to fresh fruits and be veggies so hopefully you didnโ€™t throw those up.

    Hot water bottle and Netflix! Those two combined make a perfect treatment, thatโ€™s exactly what they teach at medical school! ๐Ÿ˜‚ Also Iโ€™ve heard ginger and garlic help upset stomachs but Iโ€™m not too sure.

        No I meant a hot water bottle like to relieve cramping and pain – you press it against your stomach. ๐Ÿ˜€ Hahaha free Netflix is way better than normal Netflix. XD And I knowww, maybe if you’re really desperate you could eat it.

      Thankfully, it only lasted 2 days and I don’t think it’ll come back again but yes I will if it does. Oh as in take no medication? Once I was done I stopped the medication too but should I just not take it? Thank you so so much I’m glad it helped!

        Aah that’s good! I have clue to track mine and it’s come on time all the time so I’d freak if it messed up haha. This one time when I was really young, my friend missed her period and I dragged her to the health teacher and said “Miss I think my friend is pregnant she missed her period” because that’s what they teach us but she was like WHAT hahaha we were 11 at the time and I didn’t know how the process worked so I just jumped to the farthest conclusion ๐Ÿ˜‚
