7 Home Remedies for Bacterial Gastroenteritis

2. Ice bits

One of the major problems with the stomach flu is that, as it drags on, your body desperately needs more fluids but often can’t seem to keep them down. In other words, if your stomach flu is so bad that you seem to be throwing up constantly, it can be extremely difficult to drink water or other fluids and keep them from coming right back up.

The solution for some people are bits of ice, or pieces of ice small enough that they won’t disturb your stomach and cause you to throw up. By consuming little bits of ice, you can not only help rehydrate your body — which will have lost much of its fluid through vomiting — but you can help cool yourself down, which is especially helpful in cases where there’s a high fever.
