    I agree. Ginger root is also a great natural cure. Olive oil helps constipation as well.

    Actually, drinks that contain the unnatural sugary substance known as fructose (a derivative of corn syrup) should be avoided at all times. I worked in a fructose factory one time and I would not want to tell you what goes into the chemical brew.

    Ginger has been proven to be very effective. Ginger-ale is easy to use. But, then again, that is a "chemical". What isn't?

    Perhaps salt really makes a good remedy to a stomach upset. Thank you for agreeing Express10.

    Yep. Baking soda. Everything's a "chemical", but this is one of the most natural & harmless ones there is. It should help balance the pH in your gut.

    Heartburn can often be settled with a glass of milk. Grapes can make it worse for some.

    Your stomach is really special ! Pork and eggs are something "heavy" as much as toast. Maybe your stomach ache is a result of stress, so eating porks and eggs "relax you" since you like but not because you are really sick ^-^.

    I've heard a variation of the ginger root remedy. Eat a piece of cndied ginger, a sweetened dried version of ginger root, cut into small pieces. It's usually found in the spice aisle at the grocery store.

    I'd think altoids would be a bit strong if your stomach was upset.

    That is good if you do not have any gastrointestinal illnesses. For acid reflux you can drink as much water as you can handle and still have hearburn.
