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.

  • Great probiotic

    star

    I have tried many probiotics and find this one is the best in a reasonable price range. I take 1 at night with some kefir water (prebiotic) and it really does help. I suffer from IBS and when those symptoms kick in I immediately take 1 or 2 of them and it saves me from some major embarrassment if I have things to do (think bought movie or concert tickets that I would otherwise have had to forego). I definitely recommend using in conjunction with a prebiotic or fermented foods that can prepare the gut to receive / grow the good bacteria.
