I've actually had Coke prescribed to me by my doctor. He said that some of those secret ingredients in Coke have genuine stomach-soothing qualities in spite of Coke having a ph of around 2.8.
Yes, when I was a little kid in the late 50s and early 60s, we always had a bottle of "Coca Cola syrup" on hand for stomach upsets. It was concentrated in a small glass bottle and not carbonated. I still prefer ginger ale to regular Coke now, though, but it's a good alternative.

Peppermint tea will work wonders on you. Even a combination of peppermint/ spearmint will work.

I find it better than Coco Cola. Use two tea bags per mug of tea - nice and strong. Drink it hot.

There are some boxed teas that have ginger in them -- I think the Yogi brand is called Tummy Tamer. If the store near you doesn't have it, see if they have ginger in the produce section and pop that into some hot tea.

Ukiyo-e: My dad had that same stuff in the fridge for us kids -- coke syrup!

(And I'd go to the doctor if this has waylayed you for 3 days.)

Pear cider. I drank it racing sailboats for years, and found out recently that pear cider has some kind of naturally occuring histemine.Other ciders don't have it; it's the only alcohol I could ever drink on a boat. Settles your stomach and helps prevent sea sickness as well. Strange, eh?

Anything with electrolytes is going to rehydrate you. If your nauseous ask for arm and hammer baking soda mix it in with a cup of warm water swallow quickly and don't throw it up try and keep it down it will do miracles. Also get a gf or guy to care for you if homes close go their.

used for hundreds of years by various cultures. Whenever my children had stomach problems....
