Diarrhea

In diarrhea, there is a frequent passing of loose or watery feces which may be accompanied by abdominal cramps, bloating, vomiting, and a headache. If the problem continues, it can lead to dehydration due to loss of large amounts of fluids and salts from body. Diarrhea is normally caused by bacteria or viruses found in infected food or transmitted from one person to another. In addition, some drugs, such as antibiotics, can cause short-term diarrhea. Indigestion, nervousness, or eating some wrong food or food combination can also create diarrhea. An episode of diarrhea normally clears up within a few days, but ongoing or recurrent diarrhea can indicate an underlying bowel condition.

Home Remedies
  • It is best to let diarrhea run its course because it is the body’s way of eliminating infection.
  • ORS: Try taking ORS (oral rehydration solution) – Add one teaspoon of sugar, 1 teaspoon of lime juice, and a pinch of salt in a glass of water and sip this solution throughout the day to prevent dehydration.
  • Banana: Eat ripe bananas which help to build up the body’s healthy bacteria, which will prevent further infection.
  • Yogurt: Take equal parts of yogurt and water; add about 1/8 tsp of fresh grated ginger and drink.
  • Fennel and ginger: For acute diarrhea, mix 1/2 teaspoon fennel powder with 1/2 teaspoon ginger powder, and chew this mixture 2 or 3 times a day.
  • Ginger: Take 1/2 teaspoon ginger powder with one teaspoon of raw natural sugar, chew the mixture with some warm water. Take 2-3 times a day for 2-3 days.
Do's
  • Drink at least 8 glasses a day of clear liquid such as water, weak tea, and thin soups.
  • Eat yogurt with live cultures.
Don’ts
  • Avoid tea, coffee, and cola, dairy products, alcohol, and fatty and spicy foods during diarrhea and for few days after it has cleared up.
  • Avoid excess magnesium.
See Doctor
  • Noticed blood or mucus in feces.
