Drink Plenty Of Water
Vomiting and diarrhea are both quick ways of losing electrolytes and fluid, which can cause or even worsen. It is important to maintain fluid intake to prevent dehydration, but it is important to recognize this can be difficult for individuals dealing with an upset stomach. A good overall recommendation is to aim for six to eight glasses per day in between meals. Some mild choices include pulp-free juice, vegetable or fat-free chicken broth, tea and honey, and sports drinks. Everyone should note it is easier for their stomachs to handle beverages in small sips rather than all at once. Additionally, those with upset stomachs should consider adding sprigs of mint to their water for a refreshing and stomach-soothing drink.
