Boiled Milk

To cure diarrhoea my father said, boil cows milk, add a pinch of salt and pepper and full fat natural butter, then drink. It works. I don't know why.

I was once told by my great grandmother this, I tried it and it worked---I couldn't believe it, I couldn't tell you why it works, it just does.

To stop diarrhea boil two cups of whole milk (IT HAS TO BE WHOLE MILK).
Let it cool to a drink able stage.
It forms a skim of "skin" on top as it cools on the surface---peel it off.
Drink it.
I have had it work every time for me.

This quick, safe and easy "cure" for diarrhea is ideal for adults, children and even babies. It is a remedy passed down through generations and never fails. I've used it myself, for my son, my husband and just about everyone I've ever known has found relief. What is it? Boiled milk. Simply measure out a cup of regular milk on the stove (not in the microwave) and bring just to a boil. Allow to cool and remove the skin off the top. You can drink it while it's still a bit warm. Ideally you would use 2% milk or even homo (skim milk might be too 'thin'). If you have diarrhea with gas, nausea and/or lots of gut noises, add a few pinches of ginger powder to the milk while heating it. For babies, they should be at an age where they can drink cow's milk. A cup of boiled milk should be enough for anyone at any age and you can drink as much as you want. Why the milk works only when boiled is a mystery to me - but it's easy enough for anyone to try and tastes good too. Results should be within an hour or less.

Bread Pudding

My mom told me to try bread pudding for my daughter who was 5 at the time for diarrhea. I had no idea how to make so I just winged it. My mom told me the milk had to be scorched so I boiled enough milk to cover the bottom of the pot until it seemed to be over cooked and cubed a piece or two of bread, crust and all, put some cinnamon and brown sugar in, mixed it until it was thick and gooey and not only did she love it, her diarrhea was gone. Even my mom was shocked when I told her it worked. Any time my daughter has any signs of diarrhea, I make it for her and it's worked every time. I hope this helps!

From the military I learned about charcoal for the runs. Hence if plagued by this nuisance, I put some bread in the toaster, burn it, apply butter & jam liberaly, eat & within 2 hours all symptoms are gone. Cheapest remedy ever.

This burnt toast remedy was also used by my mother in the 40's when one of the children was sick. It worked wonderfully on all stomach and digestive issues.


C. Diff Diagnosis

Posted by C.S.M (Vero Beach, FL) on 03/08/2009

Another thing--

C diff colonizes in the bowel and should not be treated unless she is having symptoms (abdominal symptoms, fever or diarrhea).

C. diff is a bacteria--it couldn't hurt to use turmeric per the advice here on Earth Clinic.

According to The Peoples Pharmacy --

"Shredded Coconut and coconut macaroons can be lifesaving for relief of diarrhea from several conditions. The response can be immediate or can take several weeks"

From the same source--consider adding pineapple for inflammatory properties.

In my experience, C diff can cause lactose intolerance at least for a while after the infection. Try a lactose free diet.

Earth Clinic-- Would you please add my response to any diarrhea treatment forums you have? C diff should be suspected in any case of diarrhea now (because of the use of antibiotics in man and animals) and, according to MSNBC, a superstrain of C diff may be in 40% of grocery store meats.

Thank you. And thanks for offering this wonderful resource for people! CSM

Calcium

I started getting diarrhea during menopause. It would only be after lunch but it happened nearly everyday for a couple of years. I tried eliminating dairy, wheat, fructose, splenda and anything else I thought might be the problem but nothing changed. I tried every home remedy too. Finally I came across a book that said calcium stops chronic diarrhea. I had already been taking calcium but apparently if your calcium has a high dose of magnesium in it, it will only make the problem worse.

When I started taking pills with 600mg of calcium and only 50mg of magnesium it was an answer to my prayers. After the first full day of taking this I have not been bothered with this ailment since. I just make sure that I have one tablet with breakfast and one with lunch and that seems to be sufficient for my situation. I know you're not allowed to say brand names but to make it easy for people what I took was Caltrate 600-D Plus.


Cayenne

Hello - In the spring I got some kind of apparent flu bug that caused unbelievable explosive diarrhea. Neither an otc product nor a prescription helped at all. For 2 weeks there was no let up. I read on the net that cayenne pepper can help as it kills bacteria. I began taking 2 capsules a day on a mostly, or totally, empty stomach with two glasses of water to prevent a burning sensation in my stomach. I started getting better in a day or two and in a week the explosive diarrhea was gone.

Thanks for your wonderful site!

Patricia


Cayenne Pepper

I have suffered from chronic diarrhea for sixteen years due to having Crohn's disease. I read on your site about using cayenne pepper for this. I went to GNC and bought cayenne pepper capsules and it is working great. I am concerned though that this may cause ulcers? Also, I have a colonoscopy scheduled soon and the bottle says to stop taking two weeks before surgery. I am wondering if that would apply to my procedure as well. I also wonder why I should stop taking it before surgery.


Cheese

I've had very watery diarrhea for three days, and tried several things - cider vinegar, activated charcoal, turmeric, rice water - with no success.

I read something in a book of mine which suggested cheese. This seemed kind of counterintuitive, I've not been eating in the hope that this would run its course, but figured I would give it a go. So I had some cheese, and I was kind of hungry so it was welcome, and a couple of hours later another piece.

Well, I now feel so much better, no more rushing to the toilet. Apparently it sort of binds things up - whatever the case, it's worked.


Cinnamon

I have had steady diarrhea for two weeks now. I became concerned when I woke up with a mess in my bed! I take alot of vitamins and herbs and thought that might be it. I stopped them all two days ago and no better. I found this site and was looking for something around the house I could use. I tried a tsp of cinnamon on two pieces of toast each with some sugar. That was over an hour ago and the pressure in my lower stomach is gone and I don't currently feel a "pressing need" to run to the toilet! Thanks! I'll keep doing this and see how it goes!

I have been experiencing very rough diarrhea the past week, and haven't been able to sleep in four days because I was kept away from my bed. I saw the remedy of cinnamon and made my own meal, simple toast with cinnamon sugar on top, and immediately my internal system calmed down. It's a very easy process that has helped me get back into a routine life.

I tried the cinnamon sugar toast recipe after having had diarrhea for five days. I made two slices before bed on the fifth night and went to bed. The next morning I didn't feel gas in my abdomen anymore. Then I put approximately one teaspoon of cinnamon in my oatmeal. By that night I was feeling 100% better.
