In brief: Hydration

A viral infection of the stomach and intestines needs to run its course.
The most important thing to do is to keep oneself hydrated by drinking frequent sips of clear liquids. Chicken broth, electrolyte containing sport drinks, flat ginger ale all help with hydration. Watch your urine output -- three times per day is the minimum.
