Ginger: Acute vomiting and diarrhea is most often due to a viral gastroenteritis or on occasion food poisoning. Ginger ale or ginger tea can reduce nausea. The tea is stronger. Sip liquids slowly, such as 1 tablespoon liquid every 3 minutes. For detailed advice go to: http://bit.ly/1vxEW0V

Try this home remedy: Try ginger tea. You can find a recipe on the wikiHow website. If symptoms persist, Do get checked because other causes may require testing and prescribed medication. Hope that helps.
