Islamabad: Having an upset tummy is probably the worst feeling ever — whether it’s nausea, vomiting or just a general icky sensation due to a stomach bug you caught or something you ate. All you want now is to feel better — ASAP. While it’s a good inkling to keep your diet simple during this gruesome time, certain foods can essentially help soothe your belly.
Ginger: Numerous studies have proven this desi staple to work exceptionally well as an anti-nausea remedy while improving overall digestive health. If you do decide to take ginger, don’t overdo it on the first go.
The recommended limit is four grams of ginger daily, which comes up to about a couple slivers of the spice. You can also opt to chew on a piece of fresh ginger or steep fresh ginger in hot water for a soothing cup of adrak ki chai.
Nausea and Vomiting Cause and Treatment
Coconut water: It would be safe to say that coconut water is brimming with a range of health benefits, from kidney health to blemish-free skin — and one of them being, comforting upset tummies. Naariyal paani, readily available at street hawkers, contains natural sugars to provide calories as well as electrolytes, such as potassium.
It also contains Vitamin C that helps rejuvenate the body that might have lost nutrients while you’ve been sick. Plus it has no artificial ingredients such as food colorings.

Yogurt: Most dairy can be detrimental to an upset stomach, but surprisingly, a serving of plain yogurt can have quite the opposite effect. The key is to make sure you’re choosing a yogurt that is not packed with additives and sugars.
Stick to the regular, plain variety that naturally comprises active cultures. These cultures will increase the number of good bacteria in your gut, aiding in digestion, and decreasing the uncomfortable feeling of being bloated. via tribune
