    Primal Stomach Flu Remedy?

    Shop Now
    Mom's got what she's calling a stomach flu: chills (no fever), dry-heaves. She asked me to get her some bananas, noodle soup, and white rice.

    She's not very primal (although she's read Mark's book!)--and neither is her choice of remedies, it seems.

    Any ideas on some Primal Upset Tummy remedies?

    Honestly, I give her the food she wants. When you're sick typically you only feel the desire to eat certain things. Plus rice and bananas are a-ok on primal.

    I just had the stomach flu last week (it was hell!), and gave in to a piece of dry toast. I hadn't been sick like that since I was a kid, and it was what my mother used to give me when I got sick. I think it was more of a psychological thing than anything, but it helped, and I am okay with with having one piece of bread for the first time in 6 months.

    I think some bone broth would be primal-friendly, as well as rice or bananas.

    Ginger tea is seriously fabulous! grate a bit of fresh ginger in a cup, add hot water and let it seep for a minute or two. I drink it as is but some folks like to strain it. Ginger is an amazing spice for nausea....

    Peppermint tea can soothe and warm broth can help. It depends on how well food is staying down.

    I make a light bone broth with ginger in it. I would go with chicken bones since chicken soup works wonders on people when they are sick. (although beef bone broth is going to be a big healthier)

    People say I am on a "crazy" diet. What is so crazy about eating veggies, fruits, seafood and organ meats? Just because I don't eat whole wheat and processed food doesn't make my diet "crazy". Maybe everyone else with a SAD are the "crazy" ones for putting that junk in their system.

    Rest, hydration, chicken soup made with chicken bone broth and as ginger as she can handle, more rest. And stay home so she doesn't share the bug.

    Broth is the one.

    Bananas, white rice and broth soup. Your mom chose pretty well.

    Something easy on your digestion.
