    Mom is right, it's a great anti nausea remedy. If it contains caffeine, it also acts as a respiratory dilator and relieves labored breathing. If the bubbles annoy you when you're sick, let it go flat.

    A really great question!

    Because doctors have to think of something to tell you to do, so that was the best they could come up with. It's the placebo effect (except that you do need to hydrate, water is fine.) Just my opinion.

    It's an ancient remedy and it works fine. Great anti nausea treatment. Our ancestors knew far more that we give them credit for.

    I'll take your word for it. I hate the taste of it so just drink 7-up or water.

    Perhaps it would be easier for you to drink if you let it go flat. Smoking a joint will get rid of nausea too.

    Hmm, well, maybe I'll just stick with the 7-up. Thanks for the tips though.
