Baking soda was always grandma’s go to drug when we had upset tummies as children.It calms the stomach acid and takes away that terrible taste if you have to vomit which is great when mom has to clean up.
I never has to use any drugs like nexium for my Gerd as soda did the trick(1/2 teaspoon in a small glass of water before bed)There are several ways to make soda water with different ingredients and a carbon dioxide infuser.The bubbles also make one burb which makes you feel better.Plain old soda does the same when it touches stomach acid the same way vinegar and soda react as a cleaning agent.Here is a good explanation on the various kinds of water. http://www.cpnhelp.org/treatment_protocols
Lynne- Thanks for the response. Yes, the burping helps with queasy stomach. The article says seltzer water was named after the town of Seltzer in Germany that has spring water. My German grandmother would like that.
Wiki doesnt have it exactly correct –there is a difference between club soda and seltzer wate –mainly seltzer is plain just carbonated –while club has salt and some other things —Queasy stomach -I have found gas-x to help a lot –my stomach surgeon said it can be helpful
