This, as the name indicates, is due to some
acute or chronic trouble with the stomach. It is caused by over-loading

the stomach, or eating food that does not agree, such as fat meat,

gravies, starchy food, warm bread, pastry, etc., or it may be due to

dyspepsia. The tongue is generally coated, the mouth tastes bitter. If it

is acute and the stomach is full, take a common emetic like warm water,

salt water or mustard water. If it is due to decomposed food, drink lots

of warm water and take an enema and also a dose of salts. If there is much

gas in the stomach, take some baking soda in a glass of warm water; one

drop doses of tincture of nux vomica every half hour for three hours often
