Typos can kill me! How come My "KNOW" in the 1st comment became "NO"?

Drink plenty of water to wash out the system.

No your food allergen. Mild allergies may look like an indigestion. I have an apple allergy so having a piece of apple creats indiestion in my case.

Drink Ginger Ale. The carbonation helps to move things around in your stomach, and the ginger soothes your stomach nerves. My mom always would make us Chamomile tea with honey, and serve a very light next meal.
