In brief: GI flora imbalance

Gastroenteritis or the 'stomach flu' typical causes nausea and vomiting, as well as diarrhea.
This can result in a loss of the natural levels of 'good bacteria' found in the stomach and intestines. And that can lead to excess gas production and altered bowel habits. To replenish these good bacteria, eat some 'probiotic food'. There are multiple brands of yogurt available that contain them.
