"It's no fun having a stomach bug and the recovery is no fun either; most docs prescribe fluids and waiting. Now there's a quicker, tastier cure. In a recent study, children who had a teaspoon of honey in their drinks experienced 40% less vomiting and diarrhea - and recovered a whole day faster - than those who didn't eat the honey. adults would likely reap the same benefits, so add a spoonful of honey to your tea the next time your stomach acts up. Its antimicrobial proprieties wipe out infection-causing bacteria and speed healing." - Lauren Gelman
