I decided to write this post about how to avoid stomach flu because I gave my stomach flu remedies to a friend of mine and she was able to get rid of the stomach flu within a day. She also told me she started feeling better shortly after taking the stomach flu remedies.

I also chimed in on Yum Yucky’s post, who is a fellow blogger, who wrote a post about how to avoid stomach flu and I wanted to expand on my stomach flu remedies explanation I left on her post and address some ideas she touched on.

I avoid stomach flu by using two herbs together, but you can use them individually. My two stomach flu remedies include ginger root and cayenne pepper. Together these herbs sooth an upset stomach, reduce inflammation, reduce pain, and increase alkalinity. You will see why the benefits these herbs offer are important and help you to fight and to avoid stomach flu, but we need to first understand what the stomach flu is.

What Is The Stomach Flu?

Surprise! The stomach flu is actually not the flu. The flu or influenza virus causes a respiratory infection that affects the lungs and causes high fever and intense body aches. The stomach flu, which is technically called gastroenteritis, is caused by bacteria, parasites, and viruses other than influenza like norovirus. The bacteria, parasites, and viruses that cause stomach flu are often spread through contaminated food or water.

The stomach flu presents with symptoms of nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. The difference between the stomach flu and the flu is the bacteria, parasites, and viruses that cause the stomach flu trigger an acute inflammation response in the stomach and intestines.

This irritation and inflammation in the stomach is what causes the symptoms of nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea of the stomach flu. These stomach flu remedies help attack the stomach flu directly, and to avoid stomach flu we need to keep the body in an alkaline state by eating diets high in alkaline plant flood that include ginger and cayenne pepper.

Avoid Stomach Flu and Fight Stomach Flu With Ginger Root And Cayenne Pepper

Ginger root and cayenne pepper stomach flu remedies are alkalizing plant foods that support the growth of good gut flora that reside in the stomach and intestines.

Ginger root has been used in traditional medicine for thousands of years to treat stomach flu and upset stomachs. Ginger root contains chemicals called gingerols and shogaols that fight inflammation, and relax the intestines relieving the nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea that are associated with the stomach flu.

Cayenne has also been used in traditional medicine to aid digestion and it stimulates the digestive tract by increasing the flow of enzyme production and gastric juices. Cayenne pepper also has anti-inflammatory properties and reduces pain, and helps kill the stomach flu and relieve its symptoms.

Alkalizing The Body Helps Avoid Stomach Flu

The way to avoid stomach flu is to have your immune defenses fully active and this is done through having strong gut flora (microbiota).

Several data confirm that gut microbiota is engaged in a dynamic interaction with the intestinal innate and adaptive immune system.

Indeed, gut-associated lymphoid tissue (GALT) is the prominent part of mucosal-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) and represents almost 70% of the entire immune system; moreover, about 80% of plasma cells [mainly immunoglobulin A (IgA)-bearing cells] reside in GALT.

Gut flora which also also called “good gut bacteria” contains “probiotics” that break down and provide the body with nutrients, fight against bad bacteria, parasites, and viruses, and sends signals to the immune system to fight pathogens in the body.

Natural alkaline and alkaline forming foods provide an environment that supports the growth of good gut flora and fights against harmful pathogens like the stomach flu. These natural alkaline and alkaline forming foods come from plant based life. The alkaline compounds in plant based food keep the body in a state of homeostasis and strengthens the immune system.

These alkaline plant based foods in part support the growth of gut flora (probiotics) by providing them with insoluble fiber (prebiotics) that feed the gut flora. Meat, dairy, and chemical toxins are acid or acidic forming and its compounds support disease and weaken the immune system. Eating alkaline forming plant life in abundance helps you avoid stomach flu.

Stomach Flu Remedies

I include ginger and cayenne pepper in my daily vegetable juice. I blend a 2 inch piece of ginger and a 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon of cayenne pepper in my “Bam Bam Vegetable Juice.”

As stomach flu remedies, you can blend both or either herb by itself in a glass of water.

My highly alkalizing vegetable juice containing ginger and cayenne pepper keeps my stomach strong and helps me avoid stomach flu.
