Is orange juice better than gatorade when your sick?

Is orange juice better than gatorade when your sick?

Not usually: The protocol that I have seen used with most success. If you are vomiting give your stomach a rest for a few hours. Then frequent sips of warm flat ginger ale (two anti nausea ingredients; sugar solution and ginger) or water. Gatorade can also be useful and is more easily added if diarrhea is a factor. ...Read more

Calories!!: There are 960 calories in 64 oz orange juice.

If you mix any juice with milk will that make you feel sick? Or is it just orange juice and milk?

If you mix any juice with milk will that make you feel sick? Or is it just orange juice and milk?

Most folks feel fine: Most people can have both juice and milk with their breakfasts, and drink them at the same time without any unusual symptoms. That means mixing juice and milk does not cause a person to become sick (so there may be another reason for one's symptoms, rather than the juice or milk themselves). Is there gastric reflux, lactose intolerance, food allergies, etc...? Also, juice has too much sugar. ...Read more

Why do I get sick after drinking orange juice? Is this an allergy?

Why do I get sick after drinking orange juice? Is this an allergy?

Not necessary: Allergy to oranges (including juice) can present as itching, hives, wheezing, vomiting, diarrhea and less likely anaphylaxis. If symptoms are limited to stomach upset only, it may be only a food intolerance possibly related to the acidity.

Most orange: juice contains added sugar, which is not good for us. When we are sick we need additional vitamin C. C lasts about 12 hours in the body, so take some both a.m. and p.m. If becoming ill, add or two middle doses. Glad you are feeling better. Peace and good health. ...Read more

How many cups of orange juice a day when sick? Also, I get nosebleeds when I blow my nose why is that and how can I prevent it?

How many cups of orange juice a day when sick? Also, I get nosebleeds when I blow my nose why is that and how can I prevent it?

You have a cold?: The idea that taking megadoses of vitamin C for a cold has been shown to be wishful thinking. So have as much or as little OJ as you please. Regarding the nosebleeds, during an upper respiratory infection, the nasal mucosal tissue may become very friable, or delicate, with rich vasculature susceptible to bleeding. Use Vaseline or saline spray intranasally to keep moist and see your doc if needed! ...Read more
