“I came down with the Norwalk Virus over my holiday break. NOT FUN I tell you!! Well, introducing food back to my system caused a LOT of nausea. I heard about ginger's nausea-curing properties and adapted a tea drink my friend used when her ex was sick. It doesn't taste fabulous, I'll admit, but it settled my stomach pretty quickly. The 7up sweetens the drink a bit, and bonus, the carbonation in the drink settles your stomach a tiny bit because it helps you *burp*. This is not a proven recipe, but it's also one that shouldn't hurt you further. It helped me, I hope it helps you. At the very least, you could probably chew some fresh ginger. The ginger is the ingredient that actually helps with nausea so if all you have is ginger, chew on it! I wish you well!”
1 cup

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 -2 teaspoon of caffeine-free tea (caffeine-free is a must if you're trying to re-hydrate)
  • 1 -2 slice lemon
  • 1 12-2 cups water
  • 5 slices fresh ginger, root
  • honey
  • 12 cup soda pop (7Up or Carbonated water)


  1. Boil all ingredients (except for the 7up) together for 10-15 minutes so the oils from the ginger escape into your drink.
  2. Pour your drink through a strainer into your cup, leaving room for a bit of 7up.
  3. Add 7up (diet or regular) to your drink to taste and drink slowly!
