Diarrhoea Relief

Diarrhoea (alternatively diarrhea in North America) stemming from the Greek dia "through" + rheo "flow" meaning "flowing through" (which is pretty self-explanatory,) is the condition of having three or more loose or liquid bowel movements per day. The most common root cause is gastroenteritis, which is usually caused by a bacterial infection in your stomach or gut.

“My love for you is like diarrhoea...I can’t hold it in”

Author unknown

 
Diarrhoea (alternatively diarrhea in North America) stemming from the Greek dia "through" + rheo "flow" meaning "flowing through" (which is pretty self-explanatory,) is the condition of having three or more loose or liquid bowel movements per day.

The most common cause is gastroenteritis. Which is caused by (usually) a bacterial infection in your stomach or gut.

Oral rehydration solutions with modest amounts of salts and zinc tablets are the treatment of choice and have been estimated to have saved 50 million children in the developing world, in the past 25 years. In cases where these rehydration solutions are not available, homemade solutions are often used.

The loss of fluids through diarrhoea can cause dehydration and electrolyte disturbances such as potassium deficiency or other salt imbalances.

There are natural health remedies available to help with diarrhoea. Primarily we need to get rid of the harmful bacteria (causing gastroenteritis) in your stomach - you could benefit from taking supplements containing ‘friendly bacteria’ (e.g. primadophilus reuteri) which help outcompete the harmful bacteria causing the diarrhoea.

NZ native herb Koromiko (Hebe stricta) is a specific herbal diarrhoea remedy that works quickly and effectively to treat diarrhoea and as a general bowel detox. During the Second World War, NZ troops suffering from diarrhoea and dysentery in overseas postings were sent Koromiko leaves which were chewed raw or drunk as an infusion.

    Feel so much better now that I have stared taking these. Like that they don't have to be in fridge. Easy to remember to take if sitting on bench. Noticed a change within the first week

  • Very Good

    star

    I have been buying this every month for my wife on our doctor's recommendation. But was very pleased to see the 90 capsule bottle for a very cheap price. It is good for the problems my wife has.

  • Remarkable reduction in symptoms of chronic IBD.

    star

    My research in to this product prior to purchase indicated that it was much more likely to assist with Irritable Bowel Syndrome than Inflammatory Bowel Disease. I suffered from IBD and not IBS, but thought it might be worth a try. With persistence, the results have been very positive. From at least several bouts a month lasting days at a time I am now only experiencing occasional (say once every two months) milder bouts lasting a day or two at most. My bowels are more regular and other digestive difficulties diminished. I take one capsule first thing in the morning on an empty stomach with a large drink, six days a week. (Sunday is a rest day.) I am on my fourth large bottle now and will try an extended break soon to see if the results hold.
