[YEA]  Dear Earth Clinic - Last week I had an awful stomach flu (throwing up, diahrea). The vomiting stopped, but the 'hrea stayed around all day. I found the tumeric cure on Earth Clinic. I remembered a friend told me about it years ago, so I tried 1/2 teaspoon tumeric in a cup of hot water. It didn't taste that badly (maybe I'm used to taking herbs). I had one or 2 more loose stools, but the 'hrea stopped and I was able to start hydrating properly again. I recommend it.

[YEA]  It really works! After trying everything I could get my hands on, and six days of constant diarrhea, I tried the turmeric - and within hours I am back on track. Thanks for saving me the Doctor bills. I used one teaspoon in an 8 oz glass of warm water. Had to hold my nose to get it down but it was worth it.

[YEA]  I love this website! I added some Tumeric Powder with water and stuck it in the microwave for about a 1 min. I drank it as quickly as I could before it became cold again, and it cured the diarrhea instantly!

[YEA]  I should've written this earlier, but just been busy... which is a testament to its success.

The only thing I can think of is that I ate some bad (very bad soup) for dinner on January 31st (2008). Later that evening I started having bad diarrhea. Liquid coming out of me from the wrong place. I've had diarrhea before, but this stuff was different. I nearly drank a whole bottle of Pepto (large) and NOTHING changed. I went to the bathroom a lot! I was getting raw... I had completely forgotten about this website.

Last year I came here to cure myself from a kidney stone (lemon - olive oil) and it worked. But re-finding this place was such a pain. I had a bookmark crash in mid January (long story).

I read the testimonies for both the Apple Cider Vinegar and Turmeric. I went with the latter. To be honest I don't like the smell of vinegar. I wouldn't be able to keep that down. I bought my Turmeric from Stater Bros.; McCormic brand for about five bucks.

Okay. I know I F-ed up here, but be warned. This cocktail is bitter as hell. I actually spit out part of it, which looked like I had vomited on my shirt. Which I suppose isn%'t too far off. I'm so gald I only had to take this once. I don't want to do this again anytime soon. This happened on February 3rd.

As I wrote, I had been looking at the Apple Cider Vinegar cure too. I ended up messing the measurements. I was suppose to take one teaspool NOT one tablespoon with a warm glass of water. That got me real paranoid.

I felt the results within four hours. I went less and more... firm. By that evening I was back to normal. Let me clear that; I was releasing something that was far solid that didn't require me to to visit the bowel every thirty - forty minutes.

I'm back to my old self now. This stuff works! I'm so glad I re-bookmarked this wonderous place. Dudes you saved my ass, quite literally, especially since that afternoon (Jan 31st) I had a root canal. Believe me, I didn't need that grief. Thanks!

[YEA]  I had the worst case of diarrhea I'd ever experienced, and not sure of the cause -- 48 hours of running to the bathroom every 15 to 30 minutes. I wanted to try a natural cure before resorting to medication, but none of the "cures" I'd read were feasible. I found this site and read the advice to try 1 tsp. of turmeric spice in a glass of warm water (only once a day) and tried it. I could feel my stomach settling down as I slowly downed the drink. For the rest of that evening until the morning I was able to rest and not go to the bathroom at all. In the morning I had some loose stools again but not as bad as they had been. I waited a little while until just before I was set to go on a long drive and then took my 2nd day's dose. That was about 10 hours ago and I haven't had any bowel problems since. I'm still amazed at how effective this was.

[YEA]  I took two tablespoons in the morning and two at night for a nasty stomach virus I had for a week, and it was cleared up in 2 days. My son had the same thing so I put some tumeric in his tomato soup and he was cured within a day or so!

[YEA]  1 tbsp of Turmeric Spice with a cup of warm water for three days cured diarrhea. I had experienced diarrhea for 7 days due to an antibiotic that has diarrhea as a side effect. The Turmeric Spice with warm water worked.....but it also constipated me, so I then had to figure out what to do about being constipated. For those who have never heard of Turmeric Spice.....you can find it with the other spices in the supermarket...next to the nutmeg, pepper and salt.

[YEA]  1 tsp. of turmeric spice to a glass of warm water once per day for 3 days cured chronic diarrhea and intestinal bleeding. All I can say is THANK-YOU from the bottom of my heart. Had your site not been there, I just don't know how I could go on another day, I thought I was dying.

After the first week of constant diarrhea. I went to see my doctor. We did blood tests and stool culture tests and all results came back negative. He then referred me to a Gastroenterologist who put me on antibiotics for 1 week, these pills did nothing except make matters worse. Then we scheduled a colonoscopy and he said that my colon was all inflamed and scared but could not understand why and that they would need to do more tests. I went on the BRAT diet in the meantime but that did not help either. I was so dehydrated and lost 25 pounds in this ordeal. After almost 8 weeks of constant diarrhea with no end in sight. I started searching on the internet for anything I could find relating to my symptoms. Then I stumbled upon this site and read up on the Turmeric cure. It WORKED!!!

It's a miracle! I have never been seriously ill in my entire life (I'm 46) prior to this. I am on my 4th day AFTER that 3rd glass of Turmeric and it's like it never happened, I am back to my old self!

[YEA]  Have had diarrhea for over a month. Used a Pro-biotic called Primal Defense for several weeks and it got much better, but the loose stools persisted. Saw this information about turmeric..I had a bottle of it in my spice rack. Have used it for 3 days..At the end of the first day, stools were normal and have continued to be. I am so grateful to have found this and for the change it has brought about.

[YEA]  I've tried everything to stop loose stools and gas. I've taken 1 tsp turmeric in hot water for three days and the gas has been relieved and the stool is formed. Sure glad I ran into this site. Thanks!!

[YEA]  Hi, I have found in the past the best cure for Diarrhea was...... YOGURT....... Just eat 1/2 tub 500g of plain greek yogurt it worked for me. hope this helps someone.

Zinc   1  0

[YEA]  I was having persistant diarrhea for a week and researched that in developed countries, they would give zinc to children so that they don't die from the diarrhea.

I tried zinc gluconate 50mg and it stopped my diarrhea. Apparently zinc deficiencies make diarrhea worse.
