Cholemesis means "the vomiting of bile."

Hematemesis means "the vomiting of blood."

Sialemesis means "the vomiting of saliva."

Pyemesis means "the vomiting of pus."

Copremesis means "the vomiting of fecal matter."

Hyperemesis means "excessive vomiting."

Helminthemesis means "the vomiting of worms."

And, as you might have guessed, "emesis" means "vomiting."

Since all of those words have to do with vomiting, they could all be considered relating to the digestive system. I imagine the word you're looking for is one of those.
