    It depends on what is causing the stomach problem. Probably the most effective is ginger. The principle behind sipping flat ginger ale. Mix a dash of this spice with weak green tea, for nausea, and dispels gas. Be careful not to put too much, it can be kinda hot, like pepper. Plain saltine crackers, or dry plain toast.
    Stay away from sugar, it just makes the problem worse.
    Peppermint can also be used in the same way. Dissolve a peppermint candy, or place a few drops in weak tea.
    Nibbling on apple slices also helps. A tart variety such as granny smith, with less sugar.

    Ginger ale is one of the best things for an upset stomach.  Even pregnant women are told to drink or eat anything with ginger in it to calm morning sickness.
    Mint tea, dry toast, saltines and chicken broth are also great for an upset stomach.

    I have two favorites.

    The first one is lemonade. I had terrible morning sickness with my third pregnacy and sipping on lemonade or very strong lemon water was the only thing that saved me. Later I learned from my midwife that sucking on lemon drops are effective, as well.

    Secondly, a shot of apple cider vinegar works wonders on my upset stomach or heartburn. It's a rare thing for me to experience either, but if I do, it always does the trick, and fast!

    Ginger ale and soda crackers are two of my remedies, but my favorite is either plain vanilla or chocolate ice cream. Not too much, but it always helps soothe my stomach. So, of course, I get upset stomachs a lot...haha!

    Well, while travelling in China with my wife some years ago, we met a married couple who were both doctors. They suggested flat coca cola as a remedy. I have to say that on the odd occasion I've had an upset stomach it has 'seemed' to work for me as well.
