Experts say that eating overcooked rice or even drinking rice tea is an excellent remedy for an upset tummy. To make rice tea, boil about ½ cup of rice (regular, not instant) in about 6 cups of water for about 15 minutes. Strain out the rice then flavor the tea with a dash of vanilla extract, some honey or a touch of sugar, and perhaps a dash of cinnamon. Serve it up warm. You may just find you’ll enjoy drinking the tea just for the sake of the flavor! Settling an upset tummy, or stopping diarrhea and vomiting with rice tea is not only effective, it’s a delicious and soothing remedy!

What is an Upset Stomach?
An upset stomach is another term for indigestion. When we eat, our bodies start the process of breaking down our food into molecules that we can use at a cellular level. Sometimes this process is hampered and food is not broken down properly, or air is trapped in the stomach which causes certain symptoms. An upset stomach could also be caused by food poisoning, a virus infection, migraine, irritable bowel syndrome and certain medications. A chronic upset stomach can be caused by allergies to foods like wheat and milk, ulcers, certain cancers, Crohn’s disease, etc. Severe stomach-ache can be due to appendicitis and pancreatitis.
Gastro intestinal reflux can sometimes cause heartburn and severe abdominal pain. These cause symptoms such as nausea, constipation, vomiting, heartburn, stomachache, diarrhea, and dehydration.
