8. (REAL) GINGER
There’s something about ginger ale that makes it seem like just the right thing for an upset stomach. But it’s either the fizzy bubbles or the idea that it will work, because most ginger ale doesn’t contain real ginger, and it’s real ginger that has famous soothing properties. Whether it’s a ginger snap cookie (recommended on AskDrSears as a carsickness remedy) or soda made with actual ginger, it’s the real stuff that serves as a natural treatment for stomach (although it should be given in moderation—check with your doc—and should not be given to children under the age of two).
