Probiotics,garlic, oil of oreganoAvoid protein, greasy or oily food. Eat a very bland diet until your symptoms disappear. Start taking probiotics between meals 3x/day. Take a garlic tablet with your meal. Take oil of oregano with your meals (you can dilute 3 drops in water). Take this 3/day as well.
The probiotics in yogurt might not be strong enough, so taking probiotic capsules is better. Remember to drink plenty of water so you don't get dehydrated.
If diarrhea is accompanied with fever, vomiting, muscle spasms please take yourself to see a doctor! Avoid strenuous exercise or activity during this period.

Toasted bread, baked potato, sugarfree tea , banana, appleIf you do not watch your diet during diarrhea, the common healty food can be boosting it: Meals or drinks with sugar, fat or oil in it. The following are fine to consume during diarrhea as source of energy:

Chocolate!!Yeah I'm a girl, and girls love chocolate. But seriously, it works. Chocolate is naturally binding, my grandmother told me this after a very long car trip left me sick as a dog. I ate a handful of m&m's, and within an hour I was fine. Now whenever my stomach is upset, I eat a small amount of chocolate. May not work for everyone, but hey, it's worth a shot!

SymptomatologyObserve whether the stooling is repeated several times within an hour. The below natural solutions work for very mild semi solid diarrhea on account of poor food.
Infectious causes like amebiasis cannot be stopped even with loperamide, the liquid stools just continue.
For mild diarrhea ranging 1-3 times any natural remedy or fasting etc works. In case of acute diarrhea with dehydration you need to go on a combination of antibiotics and rehydration, consult your doc, if your condition is severe it may warrant a hospitalisation for a day or two on IV antibiotics and dextrose.
If it is moderate to severe a combination of metronidazole, doxycycline/cipro, with stool softeners like cadotril or even imodium, with probiotics works.
Stibs is a product of smithkline which has saccharomyces boulardii, it is a proven antidiarrheal in case of even severe AIDS related diarrhea. It is an extract from the litchi tree.
