Hello Hayden,

Thank you for your question.

An upset stomach can be caused by a virus, an allergic reaction to certain foods, or something more serious, such as GERD or gastroesophageal reflux disease.

Assuming you have a stomach ache cause by a virus, try rice tea.
Boil 1/2 cup of rice in six cups of water for about 15 minutes. Strain out the rice, then flavor the water with a dash of honey or sugar and drink warm.

Carrot and mint juice may settle your stomach. Boil four sliced carrots, four cups of water, and one teaspoon of dried peppermint or one peppermint teabag. Turn the heat to medium-low and cook about 15 minutes or until carrots are soft. If you're using a teabag, remove it, then blend the mixture until smooth and enjoy! You can also add a pinch of ground ginger to further soothe, or a squeeze of lemon juice for flavor.

I am certain many of our readers have a favorite home remedy to share.
