ACV for diarrhea:
Have had a one week bout of "the runs"... Took two tablespoons of ACV in water, drank with straw as to not mess up my teeth and Blam! It stopped in 4 hours. I tell you - this stuff is a life saver! I'll continue that dose 2x a day for awhile. Thanks earth clinic!
I am on a juice fast and had horrible diarrhea with stomach cramps and shooting pains in my lower digestive tract for hours. I felt so bad that I came to Earth Clinic to try to ANYTHING to feel better. I had tried ginger tea with raw honey, but that didn't do the trick. I read the comment and decided to try 1 TBS of ACV (with the mother) in a glass of water and within minutes ALL of the pain, cramps and rumbling completely stopped and I haven't had any diarrhea since. It is a "miracle cure"! Thank you!
I woke up at dawn not feeling quite right. Ate light, then started running from the bottom and then both ends. I finally (DUH! ) thought of Earth Clinic. Followed the advise of others and drank 1 tbsp of ACV w/mother. Figured if I threw it up, so what, it's worth a try. Like a MIRACLE cure! First the nausea went away immediately, then the lower stomach aches, cramps and running stopped. I've since had a cup of, hot broth and will soon have some toast. Thanks to all of you and this great website.
Well... I do not normally take the time to reply to things I find on the internet, but this is one I felt led to share my thanks for finding. I really appreciated finding this ACV trick for helping with my 5 days of horible diarreah! I was on my 5th day of this terrible bug and had allot of pressure in my belly and within 20 minutes of taking the prescribed dosage, I noticed significant relief. About 3 hours later I woke up and took another dose, which was very hard to get down, but did so and I am Very Pleased to share that I have felt very good today and did not have one episode of stuck on the toilet! Really glad to find a natural remedy! Thanks So Much! - Really!

C. Difficile-Associated Diarrhea Cured With Apple Cider Vinegar.
OK, I was a skeptic... A desperate skeptic but a skeptic just the same. When I came to earth clinic looking for a cure, I probably would have tried anything I read at that point as I have been battling C Diff for over 6 weeks, lost almost 25lbs, lost all my strength and was very close to losing my sanity. I had literally tried every drug cure they. Prescribe, every over the counter and was still racked by round the clock diarhhea along with pain, spasms, dehydration and weakness. I AM NOT EXAGERATING... I took 2 tbs of Apple Cider Vinegar in 6oz of water & in 20 minutes felt relief. When you have chronic diarhea, there is always a "tense" or "sick" feeling in the pit of your stomach; like you are just waiting to get sick again. ACV took that away on my first dose. By my second dose I was able to go 2 hours without visiting the bathroom- it was a real miracle. I actually slept for the first time in weeks by my 3rd dose (2 Tbs, every 2 hours- organic, with the mother- in 6-8oz of electrolyte water. )
ACV is a miracle! I would have never believed it, but I am a believer now. I will never be without a bottle. I know this sounds dramatic but I honestly believe ACV might have saved me a major health battle. I was going downhill. Fast, my Dr. had. Given up and I was supposed to check in the hospital the day I tried ACV. I never had to go to the hospital, I am still in shock that such a simple cure worked but I am a true believer now!
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.
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!
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.

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.
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!
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!

I heard there was a bit of a stomach flu going around among some friends who were stuck home with diarrhea and pains. Eventually I got the telltale head congestion and mucus running going on, and felt some sharp abdominal pains and rumbling sounds, so I could tell I caught the stomach bug myself!
I acted pre-emptively before any diarrhea started, and had about 2 tbsp. Straight ACV washed down with some water. The stomach pains and sounds stopped within 20 minutes. I haven't had any diarrhea at all, and I've been drinking fluids here and there and eating light, natural foods. So far, so good!
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!
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.
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!
