Hello everybody, Children's remedies-activated charcoal and turmeric for kids diarrhea - I am so happy to have found the feedback on turmeric and activated charcoal for children's diarrhea. My 17 month old had severe diarrhea from a stomach flu that has been going around our home. He had already had 4 diarrhea diapers before I hopped on earth clinic (wasn't aware they started a children's remedy section) it immediately helped!

i mashed up one banana and mixed it with 1/3 280 mg capsule and est 1/3 tsp of turmeric, I added a little honey too to make sure he would eat it. Normally he feeds himself and gets 1/2 of it on his bib and high chair tray. So instead I approached him in the living room and just kept shoveling in his mouth (he was willing but I didn't want him to sense any after taste) while saying "mmm mmm it's good" Lol! That's stopped diarhea for another 5 hours so I just kept giving him it more frequently afterwards sometimes just a 1/2 banana and would you believe it has kept his diarhea at bay! ?! I was beginning to think I'd have to take him to the E.R. Room or something. Please, please everybody please submit your feedback so we can build up this portion of Earthclinic!!!

My 11 month old baby had diarrhea for several days due to teething. I knew charcoal would help, but he isn't much for cooperating with eating what I don't want him to eat. However, we spend all day keeping him from eating whatever he finds on the floor! I put a charcoal tablet on the floor in front of him. He ate it. I did this a couple of times that day and it really helped his diarrhea. If he took a bottle, I would have mixed 1/2 t. Of charcoal powder in 4 oz of water and given it to him that way. Everyone should keep charcoal on hand for every day things, especially accidental poisoning!
