Some of the remedies that you can try which are available at home are the use of camoille tea or peppermint tea. These should be drunk at least twice a day in moderate quantities in order to be effective and soothe the stomach. Another home remedy that you can try is the use of freshly squeezed carrot juice. Drink the juice throughout the day to completely cure a stomach ache and then follow it up with a light meal of vegetables. In order to stop the nausea and vomiting; take half vinegar and half water and mix it. Sip the mixture slowly or drink it in a shot if you can take it, finally remember to avoid as much as possible the consumption of solid foods and drink as many liquids as you can in order to keep your level of hydration normal.

What kind of stomach virus are you referring to? It is impossible to provide anything but the most general recommendations going on such minimal information. You need to describe exactly what you are suffering from, as it is necessary to consider the symptoms of any medical problem before recommending any specific treatment. A stomach infection is usually a minor problem, and the body is able to handle it without any help. However, if your symptoms are unusually serious or refuse to go away within two days, or if you regularly suffer from stomach infections, you should visit a doctor as soon as possible.

In most cases, some simple precautions are enough to ensure that things do not get out of hand. It is particularly important to drink plenty of water to ensure that you do not get dehydrated. For at least the next couple of days, it is advisable to stick to fruits and fruit juices, as your stomach will probably not be able to handle anything heavier than that. You can also eat yogurt, as it is soothing for the stomach and contains helpful bacteria. Oily and spicy food is of course completely ruled out, as are coffee and alcohol.
