In brief: Supportive care.
Since stomach flu (viral gastroenteritis) is a virus, there's nothing that kills it.
However, taking electrolyte-rich fluids, a bland low-sugar/high fat diet, and rest helps with the symptoms and keeps you hydrated. Probiotics also help your intestines recover. I hope you feel better soon!
