This is proven to work!

I am a dietitian, and work often with patients who have diarrhea as a side effect of various diseases. The "BRAT" diet IS PROVEN to work. Dietitians have been using it for decades.

B: bananas
R: rice
A: apples/applesauce
T: toast

The best method is to fast for a short amount of time, then slowly add small amounts of the foods listed above. Be sure to continue drinking plenty of water from the get go. It is very easy to get dehydrated with diarrhea.

Flush it out naturally

Diarrhea is usually caused by something in your system that your body is trying to eject. Why not help the body flush it out by drinking lots and lots of water? As opposed to trapping the poison in your stomach with immodium or bread or the likes.

It may be a bit unpleasant but drinking a litre of room-tempurature water and then going to the bathroom, repeating as many times as necessary (usually 3-4 times within 2 hours) helps your body flush out the poison.

You will know its finished when you do any of the following:

pass gas
pass solid stools

I had a fried who was down for days taking medicine, in extreme stomach pain. He was taking medicine to STOP the diarrhea, while his body triggered the diarrhea to flush out the poison. I told him about this remedy, he followed it and within two hours he was up and about, refreshed with a regular appetite once again.

It has worked for me and my family numerous times over the years.

Sometimes we are looking for something convenient, to stop the diarrhea, because we need to be active for work or whatever, but stopping up your stomach can be painful and more harmful to your system in the long run!

Naturall fruit tannins

This is an old remedy passed on to me by my grandmother, when you have a case of the green apple trots, peel a ripe apple, set it out on the counter for 1/2 hour, let it start turning brown, the brown is a natural tannin that works better at stopping the runs, than immodium has ever worked for me, and you can not taste the tannins on the apple.

Moroccan remedy

Pour boiling hot water over oregano leaves (preferably fresh but dried is okay), add a spoonful of sugar, wait for it too cool a bit, then drink up! Ladies, this works for period cramps too.

Fresh pineapple stops diarrhea

A twelve pound weight loss in eight months and an inconclusive set of gastro tests were frustrating.
Bought some pineapple on sale. Within a day after I started eating it(fresh)the diarrhea stopped. When I ran out of pineapple, the problem returned. Eating again, diarrhea stopped. A non-pharmaceutical solution!
