The corn starch enema

Nursing Textbooks from 100 or more years ago suggest this, and I've found that it really works, even, if over-done, resulting in constipation! Dissolve 2 (or more) tablespoons of corn starch in a quart of tepid water. Take this as an enema and retain as long as possible. Repeat every four hours as needed. This works best if the first of these is preceded by a plain water enema so that the colon is cleared out for the corn starch to stick in before hardening. Also, a larger con starch enema may be used if you are accustomed to larger enemas.

Hand held bidet

A great aid to help deal with diarrhea that few people know about is the Hand Bidet Sprayer. Primarily used for superior hygiene it can also be used to spray some water up inside to get cleaned, inside and out like a mini-enema. Fast, convenient and effective! See bathroomsprayers.com

Grandpa's remedy

Grandpa Elmore was born around 1880. He swore by burnt toast, cheddar cheese and tea. The char on the toast works like charcoal to absorb the toxins, cheese is binding and constipating and tea has pectin, like in Kaopectate. I have found this to be as effective as Imodium or Pepto. My pediatrician son says avoid lactose, sucrose and fructose.

Metamucil (or an equivalent brand) add 2 tablespoons to a cup .... Put in enough water to make a paste but enough water not to choke ... Psyllium husk is good for both diarrhea and constipation.

Diarrhea and vanilla water

My grandma used to use this. For diarrhea take 6oz water and add 1 tsp pure vanilla. Add just a touch of sugar to improve taste. Sip liquid over a 15 minute period. Usually works by the time you finish drinking it. Grandma said if one dose doesn't cure it wait half hour and repeat, but I never witnessed anyone need a second dose.

If you were having cramping with diarrhea you may continue to feel a little cramping for up to half an hour, but not as severe. Worked every time for at least the last 3 generations of my family and we have used on kids as young as 2 months. Not for use on loose stool cause by breast milk in infants but a good safe alternative to over the counter meds and fast!

A remedy we have used very successfully for many years is GSE or Grapefruit Seed Extract. It used to be called Travelers Friend. You could put 15 drops in almost any water and safely drink. If sick you put 15 drops in a liquid and drink several times a day. It is viscous and does not taste good. So works best in Grapefruit Juice, drop in and still well and down it. It has worked wonders and we are never without it. We also add charcoal and acidolphilus.
