Charcoal/activated carbon

I can't believe I don't see this on here but didn't look deep. Charcoal is a natural filter (fish tanks/air filters, etc.) It's completely natural. I traveled for a decade to all the Pacific Rim countries and South America. All the experienced travelers carried it. As soon as you get food poisoning, stomach ache, or diarrhea, eat a few tablets of Charcoal or Activated Carbon ever few hours along with plenty of water and the BRAT diet (Banannas, Apples, Rice, Toast) or any combo.
The charcoal filters out what is giving you the diarrhea and without keeping it inside of your body, which is what is giving you Diarrhea in the first place.

I've given it to my kids since they were babies and try to spread the word wherever I can. It's available in every natural food section and never expires.

Banana and hot rub

My daughter and boyfriend were miserable, I had them eat bananas and plain toast then finished it off with a sock full of rice (warmed in microwave) and gently rubbed their stomachs in clockwise motion. They both slept like babies and woke up better.

Toast + garlic

What works for me is a good toast and once the bread is dark I rub a clove of garlic on it and then eat it. It tastes good and it really helps. And a few minutes later I eat a banana. Keep in mind that you have to consume a lot of liquids while having diarrhea. Another quick fix is potato soup, there are tons of recipes online that are quick and easy and work like a charm.
