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]  02/01/2009: Carrie from Reston, VA: "OK, so call me skeptical. I have been having diarrhea for over 6 days and a sharp pain behind my belly button for a while. I was becoming raw and felt sick every time I needed to go (which was often). I sipped a hot cup of black chai tea mixed with 2 tablespoons of regular ACV (not organic, just generic) and to my surprise everything went away. No joke! The sharp pain behind my belly button and the diarrhea stopped. It has been two days and its never returned! I was seriously considering going to the ER and Pepto was doing nothing for me. I never even took another dose of the ACV, just the one. Worked great!"

[YEA]  01/28/2009: Holly from Chicago, IL USA: "I had sinus surgery and had to take a new mega antibiotic that gave me AAD. Associated Antibiotic Diarrhea. After 3 days of sitting on the toilet I was desperate and found your website at 10:15 at night. Within 36 hours of dosing, 2 TBL ACV in water (5 times total) I was completely done with that problem. I am AMAZED and a total convert. I will now be adding it to my daily regimen for my tummy problems. THANK YOU."

[YEA]  11/28/2008: Piper from Salt Lake City, Utah: "There has been a bad virus going around laying people up with diarrhea for two, three day straight. I got hit hard and fast last night. Couldn't sleep, of course, and found this site. Tried the ACV (two tablespoons in a coffee mug of warm water). Tossed and turned for twenty more minutes and then fell fast asleep and sleep good all night. Haven't had any since and today was Thanksgiving and I really over did it. So that is a testament to how well this works! Note: is very nasty going down the hatch, however. Great site, saved my holiday."

[YEA]  11/22/2008: Shawna from Central, Ohio: "I tried the Apple Cider Vinegar in a last ditch effort after not having relief from several doses of Pepto. After researching the internet, I found this site and decided to try the ACV. My stomach stopped turning within about 15 minutes.

I took several doses of 2 tablespoons in 8 ounces of water. I did this for several days until I didn't have a weak stomach. I'm not sure if I should have taken it that often, but I did what I needed to. I've reccomended this to my co-workers who all think I'm crazy, but it works!

Thank you for posting, I'm so glad that I tried the ACV. (I've also read on this site that ACV will help to lose weight, if you use it sparinglty. I've not tried this, but thought I would share my new insight.) Thank you!"

[YEA]  11/04/2008: Miriam from New York, N.Y.: "I've been a fan of earth clinic for almost 2 years now, and finally I can contribute to the feedback! About 3 hours ago I had horrible cramping in my belly. So I went to the bathroom, and lo and behold I had a bad case of diarrhea. I had to go a couple of times. However, I still didn't feel 100% after. So I started thinking about what I ate or if my dog being sick vomiting earlier had anything to do with it. Naturally, I went right here to look up remedies for diarrhea, and good old apple cider vinegar came up! I already had a bottle of organic ACV with the mother (I know.. don't mention labels.. lol), which I have been taking on and off for the last year and half. I took 2 tbls with a glass of water about an hour ago, and now I feel great! Where there was an uneasy feeling and gnawing pain in my lower abdomen, now is replaced by a relieving and soothing, almost cooling, sensation. And NO MORE DIARRHEA... WHAT A RELIEF!!! =D"

[YEA]  11/17/2008: Kelly from Miami, Florida replies: "Thank you so much!!! your post just saved me from being stuck in the restroom all night :) worked quick too"
04/30/2011: Quesha from Onley, Virginia replies: "thanks thanks thanks thanks thanks... everyone else was like two or three days ive only had it for a couple ov hours n needed something quick ..."
[YEA]  08/05/2012: Robert from Katy, Texas replies: "Same problem as everyone else. I took 4 ACV tablets and the problem disappered in 4 hours. I realize the tablets probably won't give all of the benefits as the liquid does, but in this case, they work also."

[YEA]  07/10/2008: Debbie from virginia beach, usa: "After a holiday to Dominican Republic my daughter and I came down with diarrhea, for three days I was stationed in the loo. Lo and behold after searching for a natural cure I run across your website and decided to give ACV a try, instantly my stomach felt better and feel I am on the road to recovery...THX"

[YEA]  05/26/2008: Zion from Austin, USA: "I have had Diarrhea almost EVERY DAY for 6 weeks! The past week it had gotten so bad that I went to the ER twice for dehydration. I couldn't stop the diarrhea. The last bout was 12 times in one day...that landed me in the ER. They were of no help on how to stop it so I did some research. (What the heck took me so long???) I tried the ACV remedy yesterday and NO MORE DIARRHEA!!! It works beautifully!!!"

[YEA]  03/03/2011: Jramos from San Antonio, Texas replies: "Tried the 4 tablespoons of vinegar to half cup of purified water; my stool has solidified since taking two cups of this ACV and took one again this morning. It burns a little going down but it's worth the results it offers. I was excited to see my stool texture improve and I'm going to keep doing it for a week to ensure remedy effectiveness. Thank you Earth Clinic:)!! I'm going to do this three times a day for a week."

[WARNING!]  05/25/2008: Lynn from Kirkland, WA: "I tried Apple Cider Vinegar because I have been suffering from constant diarrhea. A doctor recommended Apple Cider Vinegar being helpful to kill parasites which might be the root cause of my problem. However, I have stomach cramps plus severe burning after I drank it. I had 7 parts of vinegar & 3 parts of water. This is way too concentrated. I just thought to share this with others... Please dilute your vinegar!"

01/20/2012: David from London, Uk replies: "Yes after reading a few comments, people seem to be taking far to much ACV in one hit, I have been taking ACV( with mother intact) daily for 3 years now, I take 2 tspns(Teaspoons) in an 8oz glass of warm water 3 times daily, usualy with my meals ( I sip it through a straw) its cleared up my sinus problems which I had for many years, and I haven't had a cold or influenza in 3 years... hope it helps."

[YEA]  05/16/2008: Doris from Muskegon, MI: "Diarrhea Remedies: Thank God for this site. I was miserable and at 4:00 in the morning googled and found this site. Tried two TBLS in warm tea and within 15 minutes my stomach was calm and my intestines were no longer rumbling - TRULY AMAZING. 24 hours later and no problems."

[YEA]  04/09/2008: Karen from Lisle, IL USA: "Thanks! Could not believe it when I tried the APPLE CIDER VINEGAR CURE. A few TBS in a 1/2 cup of warm water (drank it like a shot of schnapps) first thing this morning, and here I am CURED. Diarrhea Die-a-Gone! Thanks again. It is a miracle to me after suffering for a week. k now ok"

[BETTER BUT NOT CURED]  05/11/2008: Ross from Spokane, USA replies: "Apple cider vinegar for diarrhea: Just tried it an feeling a bit better. Wish I would have read the comments cause I drank the stuff straight. Started off tasting like pickle jucie and quickly turned so bitter. Never going to drink it straight again. I think I heard my tounge screaming :)"

[YEA]  03/31/2008: Ray from Valdosta, Georgia: "Thank god for this site!!! Apple Cider Vinegar. After three straight days of constaint i mean every 20-30 minuits of going to the bathroom with the worst diarrhea ever in my life, I had to try something as the normal drugs did not touch it one bit, I did a Google search for help for this site read about ACV and got hold of some, granted I was in such bad shape I took 3-4 Tbsp of it with a very small amount of water, OMG in mear minuites my tummy felt better and NO more trips to the bathroom, till about 17 hours later and all was back to normal. I have told many of this and even sent e-mails to spread the word thank you to all who have shared and god bless.

p.s. Now going to give the weight loss with ACV a shot."

[YEA]  03/30/2008: Bruce L. from Kaneohe, Hawaii: "Well, like everyone else, I thought I was dying for a few days. My trips to the bathroom increased and the diarrhea refused to cease. After "googling" diarrhea remedies, I found the only remedy I had the ingredient(s) for; ACV. Now my stomach was a rollercoaster and as soon as I downed the 2Tbsp of ACV (which i think is DISGUSTING BTW)....i feel purrrrrrdy fine and dandy"

[YEA]  01/16/2008: Anonymous from Santa Barbara, Ca: "I had diarrhea for 3 days and was going to make a Dr. s appointment on the 3rd day, but I decided to try the 2 Tbsp. of Apple Cider Vinegar. I am so glad I did! I really can't believe how well this stuff works. I didn't have diarrhea at all after taking just 2 Tbsp. of ACV. I am amazed and SO glad I found this web site!!! Thanks for this web site and thank you to everyone who has posted there feedback, it really helped me out!"

[YEA]  10/06/2007: Stella from Chelmsford, Essex, England UK: "I had explosive diarrhoea for a period of 4 weeks travelling in China from Beijing to Xian. No chemicals did anything but treat the symptoms. Upon returning home and taking an anti-biotic the diarrhoe went from explosive to less explosive. Test came back a "virus". I was getting really down by this and starting trawling th intenet. I came upon this site and through I'd try the cider vinegar - what did I have to lose. After my first dose I felt a difference right away. My stomach felt "different". I continued with the cider vinegar and 3 months later, I am completely cured. It didn't happen overnight for me as I had 4 weeks in China to recover from. But I am so grateful for finding this site. I'm also thankful for all the comments that persuaded me to give it a try. Thanks to all those who posted comments as you certainly gave me the confidence to give it a go - your comments cured me!"

[YEA]  09/05/2007: Yehuda from Jerusalem, Israel: "After suffering from violent diarrhea for 18 days and losing almost 6 pounds that I did not need to lose, I looked here and saw the advice to use Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV). I grabbed the bottle of regular grocery store ACV and took 2 Tablespoons with a lttle juice. It was only mildly unpleasant but the results were almost immediate. The diarrhea stoped immediately and the naseau did, too. After spending most of the last 18 days in the bathroom, I was pleased to not have a bowel movement the lest of the day, slept like a baby at night, and then actually had an appetite this motrning. After a gentle breakfast, I was happy to have a small and regular bowel movement. i decided to have another 2 tablespoons this afternoon. if anythign chages, i will post, otherwise know that this has been an IMMEDIATE life saver. I am an avid mountain biker who usually rides 2 hours 5 or 6 days a week. After 18 days of forced rest, I cannot wait to get back out. Thanks."
