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

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.

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

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!!!

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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

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!

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.

Apple cider vinegar cured my diarrhea caused by milk and other foods. I switched to Lactose Free Milk while taking ACV and eventually the diarrhea was gone. I continued to take ACV 3x/day (2 tsp in 8 oz of water before each meal) for 2 months when I decided to see if drinking regular skim milk (as I used to) would cause the diarrhea again. To my surprise, I no longer get diarrhea to any foods, not even to milk. So thank you God for ACV. Another good effect I had as a result of taking ACV is the disappearance of a couple of moles.

I can't believe it! I had diarrhea for 5 days!!! I had no nausea, no fever and no signs of dehydration, so I didn't want to go to a doctor and go through expensive and time consuming work ups for them to tell me they couldn't find the cause. So decided to try whatever I could at home. Repeated doses of Immodium and Pepto Bismol, but nothing worked. Until I read this page and tried the Apple Cider Vinegar. Amazing! Immediately, the cramping stopped and after 3 doses, I was cured the same day!!! The suggestion to mix with Apple Juice was a good one. It's pretty yucky with just water, but at that point, I was willing to try anything! Can't believe something I've had in my cupboard all along was the answer! Thank you!

I too had a bad case for 4 days with no other symptoms - well, other than tremendous gas. It would build in my belly until it was painful to touch and then when it was released you would think you were standing in a wind tunnel. I tried Pepto and Immodium to no avail. I talked to my doctor after office hours and he told me the only thing they would do at the ER is put me on an IV for dehydration. I trusted in google, found the site, and tried ACV. Unlike most other accounts, I didn't find immediate relief. My stomach was still playing the part of a cement mixer churning out gas but once that passed an hour or two later, I have been relatively symptom free. 2 Tbsp in some water seems to have trumped the marvels of modern medicine.

I had diarrhea ( including blood ) almost constantly for 8 1/2 weeks after a " holiday " party at work. I received the advice of 6 MD's, 1 nurse practitioner,& several public health nurses. I had lab tests done. Besides all that , I am a registered nurse. No one knew what was wrong with me ( and yet they wanted to do even more expensive and invasive tests ). I could eat only certain things. When I would take prescription medication - I had to keep taking it. Over the counter medication stopped the diarrhea but left me in constant pain and drowsiness. This week I was blessed to remember something I heard a long time ago about apple cider vinegar. So I tried a few mouthfuls. I had already had about 6 bowel movements that day. I didn't have any more problems that day ( to my surprise ) even though I had eaten alot. My only problem now is to figure out what should I eat first...a pizza ?, chocolate malt ?, grilled cheese with tomato ? I am very grateful to the Almighty for creating such a thing as apple cider vinegar.

I was on my fourth day of extreme diarrhea and was becoming concerned because of no relief. I had recently completed taking antibiotics for a tooth infection and had started taking a probiotic with a high concentration of L-acidophilus. I'm sure that was helping. But when I started taking raw, unfiltered organic apple cider vinegar with the "mother" I saw immediate results. I also stopped eating any diary products such as milk, eggs, cheese, and also sugar. I always rejoice when I don't have to go to the doctor!
