My wife had a case of chronic diahhroeah. In the past, with loose or runny motions, one or two junket tablets, taken with a glass of water has done the trick. This time, not so lucky and after three days, went to the chemist - still nothing worked.
Finally at 5.30am this morning, remembered this site and had a look - apple cider vinegar - 2 tablespoons in a glass of water! My wife dislikes the taste of ACV, so I suggested she take it in a glass of flat lemonade. 15 minutes later - No diahhroeah. 10.30am had another dose and all seems fine.
Thank you Earth Clinic. Hope this helps someone else.
Apple Cider Vinegar for Diarrhea:
I agree with another writer who wrote this stuff is miraculous. It tastes bad, but the results are so amazing, I am happy to chug it.
I put 2T of apple cider vinegar--just the regular kind from my grocery store--into 6 ounces of water. I could feel the difference in about 15 minutes--this after four weeks of agony, and countless doses of probiotics, vomiting and diarrhea.
My guess is that I developed c. difficile colitis related to months of antibiotic use. Anyway, I could barely eat, I was miserable and nothing worked. This did. In spades. Today I have no symptoms.
Last night I drank 3 glasses of the mixture. Today I have sipped on one glass, throughout the day, not because I need it, only because I am in awe of it. This stuff is like some elixir of the gods. Whatever miraculous thing it did to my body, I'm all in. Thanks Earth Clinic .

Worked like a miracle! Watery stool in the morning, took 2 Tbs right after (having read it on here of course) and diarrhea was fully gone!
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!
