Apple Cider Vinegar for Diarrhea
Home Remedy Ingredients
- Apple Cider Vinegar - 1 to 2 Tablespoons
- Filtered Water - 8 to 10 Ounces
Take 1-2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar in a glass of water and drink. Do so twice a day until the diarrhea is completely gone (though one dose may do it for some).
[YEA] 12/31/2012: Sick Again from Malaga, Nj: "I was having severe diarrhea for 2 days, getting dehydrated... On the morning of day 3 I tried 2 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar and the diarrhea immediately became less intense. Used ACV 2 times more that day and the diarrhea was almost done. Not a quick fix but I think definitely helped."
12/22/2012: A. J. from Calgary, Ab Canada: "Only saw this one example of diarrhea caused by antibiotics--wondering if other people had results with ACV treatment for antibiotic-related diarrhea.
Taking antibiotics for absess in or on colon related to diverticulitis. Have been in pain, sometimes knife-like, for 5 days. Just started two strong antibiotics yesterday for the absess/infection, and tonight started diarrhea. Want to stop it before I lose sleep and maybe rupture the absess or something.
The postings I read have given me hope, and I will be going to the ACV and honey in a few moments.
Thanks to all who posted and anyone who can tell me about an antibiotic-related case!"
08/08/2012: Mimi from Carmel, California: "I have been sick off and on for 5 days. Imodium always works right of the bat, but not this time - did absolutely nothing. I finally called my doctor for a prescription for Lomotil. Supposed to be a sure thing. I'm still running to the bathroom. I just made a cup of organic ACV, agave and hot water and some steamed rice. I am very optimistic that this will work! I'll post later."Replies
09/17/2012: Andrew from New York City, Ny Usa replies: "Had the runs for a few days - especially as I was eating lots of watermelon. Trying the ACV at first didn't seem to work, probably because I kept eating fruits (actually: watermelons, apples, then cooked vegetables and cooked apples, and meat). On the second try, I only ate some cooked brown rice, with butter (from grassfed cows) and salt. And the diarrhea is gone. Oh and I did also take some probiotics, which I also had taken before without success.
ACV: about 2 tablespoons in a little water, followed by a cup of plain water"
[YEA] 11/20/2012: Gogirlusa from Saint Louis, Missouri, United States replies: "I have a horrible intolerance for gluten. I had some homemade bread that was supposed to be gluten free, but there was some cross-contamination because right after I ate it I got really sick. I read about the ACV here on earth clinic and can't belive the difference it made for me. It really helped me feel so much better and soothed my stomach and nausia. I will keep a small flask of this stuff in my purse at all times from now on in case I ever get glutened again! A miracle!"
[YEA] 08/04/2012: Max from Montreal, Quebec, Canada: "We missed an appointment because my son had diarrhea. I read about Apple cider vinegar and its benefits and decided to give it a shot. I gave him 1/3 cup and it stops the diarrhea in half an hour. Amazing. This should be in every home just for the health benefits alone."
[YEA] 05/01/2012: Over-medicated In France from Paris, France: "I have pneumonia for over a month and a half during which I have taken 30 (yes-thirty) days of antibiotics. (3 different ones. Chronic diarrhea for 30 days was easy to deal with-but when the Dr. stopped the antibiotics to finally research the actually cause-one week later I have found myself in agony with acute diarrhea. 4 days now... No probiotic or levure, spasfone or smecta has helped. I am exhasted and in severe pain. I recently cured my vaginal mycose using a ACV douche. Today I read here about the simple idea to use ACV for my stomach/intestinal bacteria. 2 Tblspn ACV 2 Tblspn honey in a coffee cup filled with warm water (like a warm tea). I drank this and feel sooo much better that I can actually Smile again! I will do this 2 times a day until I get my strengthback. Still exhasted but feeling hopeful again! Thank you all for your input! Amazing! God bless you!"Replies
[YEA] 07/09/2012: Jules from Kissimmee, Florida replies: "On a recent out-of-state trip, I caught a case of liquid poop. At first I thought it was because I ate a lot of greasy food one night (ive been sick to my stomach before when I ate a funnel cake at the fair; grease bomb!! ), but after a couple days, I figured it was something more serious.
So I started taking that good old pink stuff. However this did absolutely nothing after 2 days. By now, day 4, I was in so much pain from the cramps, and it felt like someone inserted a shop vac up my rectum and kept flipping the inflate/deflate switch. So I decided to check out EC once again for help. I came across the Turmeric cure. So I went to Walg****$ and bought a bottle, and took 6 capsules which is about 1 teaspoon I thought. After that, I thought I was good to go! No gas, no pain, and no liquid poop. However the monster came back just later that night.
So another day went by, another day of sulking. Then I visited the site again and decided to try the dreaded-by-many ACV cure!! Dah dah dahhh. I mistakenly took 2 teaspoons in juice one night, but the recipe was 2 TABLEspoons! So in the morning (when I found out) I again ingested the concoction, this time taking 2 big ones in a glass of juice with honey.
After 6 or so days of diarrhea every 30 minutes, I finally had peace! I was so happy that it was gone. Everything was gone, the cramps, the nausea, the gas surges, and the liquid poop. That afternoon I again chugged 2 more Tablespoons of ACV in juice, just to be safe. Then I was free. That was a week ago, it took me a while to post this but im so glad Earth Clinic saved me again : D Thanks to Jehovah God for ACV"
[YEA] 11/15/2011: Terri from New Port Richey, Fl: "I have been using the advice and testimonials from Earth Clinic for years and have used it many times. But, I haven't had ANYTHING work as well or as quickly as ACV for diarrhea!
I have suffered with a horrible stomach virus for 3 days and the diarrhea was getting worse. I tried Immodium which helped, but when it came back, it was with a vengeance.
In desperation I went to my old friend, Earth Clinic for advice. Once again, most yeas were for ACV! Just as others have said, within 15 minutes, the symptoms stopped! I used 2 Tablespoons ACV with the mother and 2 Tablespoons of organic honey mixed in water. It's a bit hard to swallow, but helps if you have a chaser of tea or other liquid.
Once again, yea Earth Clinic!"Replies
[YEA] 02/27/2012: Bonnied from Hyde Park, Vt, Usa replies: "First time I found the site and am very glad I did! The ACV worked like a charm. I had tried charcoal, Immodium, diet and fiber. NG. But the ACV finally calmed down my GI tract. Whew!"
[YEA] 02/19/2011: Janikaye from Bloomington, Mn: "The stomach flu ran one by one through every person in our family and it lasted for days. Eventually the throwing up stopped but I still had a terrible case of diarrhea and my stomach was gurgling constantly and full of gas. Very painful--even my ribs ached. So on day number five of this, I took my apple cider vinegar (with the mother). I used 2 Tablespoons mixed with some water. At first I wondered if it was helping, then I realized yes! It's getting somewhat better. The diarrhea stopped and so did all the gurgling. I took a second dose of the ACV before bed and then next morning when I woke up, even the gas was gone. I finally have my life back! I'm very thankful to this website and my friend Jill who told me about it. Praise God!"Replies
[YEA] 08/18/2012: Micko from Portland, Or replies: "This was my second bout of a viral enteritis this year! After 1 day of 101.7 fever, diarrhea set in... Every 20 to 30 min for 36 hrs, knew I could not handle another several days like this, so kept looking online and found Earth Clinic (now bookmarked). Tried ACV with plan for activated charcoal if it did not work. Had not eaten much, only a little oatmeal and veggie broth, so took 3tbsp in 6oz water for 1st dose at 3:00pm. Waited. Could hear the ACV gurgle thru my system. Still had to go about 20 min later, then again 1 hr later, but was less spastic. 3.5 hrs after first dose ate a banana and took 2 direct tbsps by mouth. Harsh, but less volume to choke down. By now reduced visits to every 2 hrs. Kept taking 2 tbsp every 4 hrs right up to bed. Next day only went 3-4 times. Felt good to venture out of house. Following day near normal frequency and confident to leave house for multiple errands. Wish I knew about this the 1st time round. Thanks you to all for posting!"
[YEA] 09/11/2010: The_little_one from Chicago, Il, USA: "I have never experienced such a bad diarrhea until today.. I ate a double cheeseburger at McDon.. And I think I had food poisoning. I literally went to the bathroom every 30 min or so. I was searching online for cures for diarrhea and I found this website. After reading all the comments, to make sure no one experienced anything bad, I told my mom to go buy me Apple Cider Vinegar. I diluted 3 teaspoons of ACV into a cup of water and I drank it. After 10-20 min, my stomach hurt less and it's been 2 hours since I haven't had any bowel movements. Also, I think what helped was the fact that I ate rice and I drank peppermint tea with no sugar. But ACV definitely played the biggest part."
[YEA] 08/26/2010: Caddy from Santa Rosa, Ca: "I've had explosive diarrhea for the last 4 days. Was going potty every 20-40 minutes all day. Could hardly sleep because I was up every hour to go to the restroom. After google led me to this site, I was excited to try the ACV - and it worked! I took 4 T in 1/2 cup of warm water, added honey to taste. It was a little nasty, but drinkable. I slept through the night last night! Had a couple more bathroom trips this morning until I drank more ACV, and have been diarrhea free for the last 5 hours!!!! It works, thank goodness!"Replies
[YEA] 06/11/2011: Anne from Huntington Beach, California replies: "I had diarrhea for 12 hours and Imodium didn't help. I thought I should go to the doctor, but it was 6:00 p. M. I decided to go online to see if I could find help there and was grateful to find this site. I sent a relative to a healthfood store for the ACV capsules. He bought a bottle of 500mg capsules. I took two and was cured! Thank you so much."
[YEA] 03/27/2010: Al from Orlando, Fl: "Acv cured my upset stomach and diarrhea within 10-15 minutes. I had a couple bouts of borderline explosive diarrhea and felt queasy/weird afterwards. I took about 2 tablespoons of ACV in a cup of cool water and ice. I put a bit of honey in it too to help sweeten (though the water is so cold, it didnt really soak in...). I had a bit of a drinking night last night (whiskey and vodka primarily) and had coffee this morning from freshly roasted beans. Needless to say, that kind of ended badly. Thank god ACV was there to save me.. ! This stuff is great. Be sure to use a straw and make sure you get the straw deep into your mouth so you dont hit your teeth with the vinegar. It's not great for your chompers. The kind of ACV I used was not organic with mother (if you dont know what that means, look it up because it's good to know) and was just taken from the grocery store. I havent tried organic mother ACV yet, but its supposed to have a lot more raw nutrients in it than regular brands. Good luck!"
[YEA] 07/15/2009: Frederick from New York, NY: "I had food poisoning 14 days ago and although the bad diarrhea subsided, i have had loose bowels a couple of times each day and cramping and gas all day. I wasn't getting any better. I began using pepogest and digestive enzymes and that helped a little. Then i read about acv on earthclinic so i bought some immediately (all i could find was unfiltered/pasteurized). I took a tablespoon in 8oz of water 3 times a day with each meal. After 1 day I am already feeling relief. I have much less cramping and gas and have only gone once today. I hope that this remedy continues to help me improve."
[YEA] 07/07/2009: Heather from Phoenix, AZ: "Thank you for your tip on using apple cider vinegar for diarrhea. I had diarrhea for three days straight and found your website while I was searching for a home remedy. I went to a health food store and found ACV in pill form. After the first dose, I felt better but still had some loose stools. After one full day of taking the ACV, no more diarrhea! I feel so much better. I've never had a home remedy work so well before. What a relief!"
[YEA] 05/19/2009: Karlap from Orlando, Florida, USA: "My 2 year old son and I had a bad case of stomach cramps which turned into 3 days of watery diarrhea every 30 min or so or everytime we ate or drank anything. I checked this site for remedies and tried Apple Cider Vinegar(ACV) (I already had in my cabinet) mixed with water.
I mixed 2 tsp ACV in about 20 oz. of water. I smelled it in the glass and knew it would be hard to get my 2 year old to drink this!! I poured half into a glass for me to drink. I poured the other half into a sippy cup, opened up one of those take-along flavored pouches you shake into bottled water (hard to describe & not use a brand name)and used about half the pouch to flavor his ACVwater in the sippy cup. I did this a few times, maybe every 2 hours, each time using less flavor to make sure he was getting the ACV. It's been about 4 hours and neither of us has gone to the bathroom. It may be early but I'm gona call it and say this remedy actually worked."
[YEA] 03/16/2009: Henry from Los Angeles, ca: "Apple Cider Vinegar, stomach issues: I was feeling horrible, my sinuses were so bad i could not breath, and to top it off i had horrible stomach problems, not diarrhea, but very close to it. anything i would eat would cause me to go to the restroom. I have tried ACV before, and i am a believer in it, but i was amazed that despite taking pepto bismol and immodiam ad, ACV finally gave me relief. after being stuck at home for 2 days i was able to go out to watch a basketball game, go out to a nice dinner (couldnt eat much but at least i was not running to the restroom). I am going back onto a ACV regimen, trying it out again has made me a believer again."
[YEA] 02/15/2009: Mark from Highland, CA, United States: "Thank god for this website. Apple cider vinegar cured my 3 day diarrhea. I just took about 2-3 tbs of ACV and I felt much better in 15 mins"
