Ginger Ale for an Upset Tummy

Ginger ale has always worked for me when I have a sour or upset stomach.

It needs to be warm or room temp, and it must be sipped.

The ginger in it is the active ingredient and it has been used for many years as a folk remedy for motion sickness, nausea, colds, and coughing.

I have heard of it used as a tea but I have never tried it for my stomach.

Perhaps the next time I am in need of it, I will give it try.

I would love to know if anyone has tried the tea and had success with it.

Keeping things as natural as possible is always the best, and in this case, is the least costly too!


  1. When I was pregnant with my third - I was sick to my stomach 24 hours a day. I tried ginger ale, tums, saltines, everything I could think of. One day my mom made me her special concoction. She bought a ginger root, you can find these in the produce section at most grocery stores, added some lemon juice and some honey and then steeped it in boiling water for about 5 minutes. It was a miracle - I lived on it for the next 8 months.

  2. Kathy I make ginger tea during the winter because it is also good for congestion...especially if it's really strong...but, for nausea, I will just cut off a piece and chew on it to get @ the juices...the tea works as well, but the straight ginger is very effective for nausea/upset stomach!!
