    upset stomach

    What can I drink to help relieve my upset stomach
    rohvannyn responded:
    First, figure out what made your stomach upset. If you have acid indigestion, start with some antacids. (generic Tums are great.) Peppermint tea is really good for indigestion. Failing that, a mint isn't bad. If you are nauseated, ginger tea is good, or ginger candy.

    If there's a food that always does this to you, eat less of it - but that's a no-brainer. If it might be food poisoning, let your body rid you of it in whatever way it wants to.

    Ginger ale is sometimes drunk to help an upset stomach, but it depends on why it's upset.
