Cinnamon

Diarrhea (ailment) and Cinnamon (cure): My boyfriend had a stomach virus and was in awful pain. He was throwing up and using the bathroom around every 5-10 minutes. It was to the point where he had nothing left to expell but water and bile. I finally convinced him to drink a tea mix I made. I used- 1 cinnamon stick, broken up with a scissor a big pinch of ground ginger pinch of ground mustard a pinch of ground cloves (or 2 whole) I let it steep from boiling to drinkable temperature. He started getting better almost instantaneously. It stopped not only the diarrhea, but also the throwing up and the incredible pain. I never saw anything work so fast!

Does one drink the broken up pieces of cinnamon stick or just steep them?

I had a stomach virus and after 3 nights/days of diarrhea and stomach pain, I tried some over the counter drugs with no results. I was so desperate that I came across your website and I read the article on cinnamon tea. So I immediately tried it and it work about 3 hours after. So I continue to drink this tea for a few days and now I am perfect. Thanks for your information.

I used two cinnamon sticks broken up into smaller pieces boiled in 3 cups of water drink hot with a little sweetener if needed to taste this will stop severe diarrhea in ten-fifteen minutes also good for upset stomach mix with milk for tasty horchatta type drink. Also, garlic in warm milk with small amount of sweetener is great for stomach ailments and gas

I have had reoccurring diarrhea for 3 weeks. I tried the cinnamon stick w/water and it really helped. I used 1 stick and 1 1/2 c water, added a little honey for sweetener and within 30 min my problem was better. The cramps got worse with the first few drinks but when the cup was gone so were the cramps. It has been hours and no diarrhea. I am so happy I found this site. Thanks for the post

Clay

Diarrhea Remedies: Use of calcium montmorillonite clay, especially with silver nitrate can be a very good way to resolve the bacteria, and bowel irritation and help absorb extra fluids to form a more consistent stool. Use a premium, food-grade product that is made in the USA.

Just wanted to agree with using clay for diarrhea. After getting a severe case of gastroenteritis one year that kept me on a couch for a week, I vowed never to get it again. After doing some research clay, activated charcoal and olive leaf extract became my line of defense.

I always keep Bentonite Clay on hand, along with some pills containing a mix of clay and charcoal from our local health food store.

I agree, and have found that a once a day shake containing 2 teaspoons of Psyllium, 1 teaspoon of flax meal, 1/2 teaspoon of Bentonite Clay,1 teaspoon of Inulin and 1/8 teaspoon of cayenne pepper is enough fiber to keep my stool firm and my bowels regular. Two things we need to take care of is our bowels and our liver. Those are priority # 1.

The inulin feeds your good bowel flora. The cayenne make it all work more better. The clay is an electrolyte which cause it all to flock as it passes through, giving you bulk. It you are a wine maker, you know this is the way you clarify your wine.

I am also in the process of making a green walnut tincture and a poke berry tincture here in East Tn. This is my first attempt at this chore. Naturally, I'm using white lightening from a moonshine friend of mine. That's the way we are here in the ridges. Just glad the auto was invented before my time least I would have had to marry a cousin up the hollar.

Just wanted to give a quick update to using clay for diarrhea. I am still using it, but found a simple way of drinking clay in it's powdered form as apposed to using the pills. I mix a half a cup to a full cup of milk, a half a teaspoon of blackstrap molasses, two or three level teaspoons of sugar (just to sweeten) and 3 or 4 teaspoons of clay or more. I put all this into one of those metallic "water bottles" and shake! Normally clay sticks a lot and is hard to get mixed well; you end up with clumps that's not a lot of fun. Doing it the way above mixes it evenly and it's just like drinking a milk shake; a dark, cloudy, evil looking milk shake, but a milk shake none the less. The taste is pretty good too. Works well for me! :-)


Cloves

For almost immediate diarrhea remedy, take about 5 cloves and break them into easy to swallow pieces. Swallow with water.


Coconut Macaroons

Eat 3-4 (small) coconut macaroon cookies after your first episode and that will stop your diarrhea. I keep some in my freezer and just eat them when I need to. Works better than Imodium or anything else.


Coke and Alka-Seltzer

Quick and easy cure for diarrhea, I don't know how it works but it does.

one coca cola, 2 regular alka selzters.

Pour coke in glass and add alka selzter; let it fizz. When fizzing stops, drink. Usually works instantly.


Cream of Wheat Cereal

I have had diarrhea every morning for a year and a half. Then I remembered that my mother use to give my brother diarrhea whenever he got it. I started to eat it at night before bed time, and it works. No more diarrhea in the morning. Cream of Wheat takes up water, and that is no doubt why it works. If you have it all day, eat it as often as necessary.


Cream of Wheat Cereal, Cinnamon

Searching Earth Clinic for something to halt my diarrhea this guy said his mom recommended Cream of Wheat. It would absorb the extra moisture. Then I read about cinnamon as a cure and read about various ways to use it. I decided to combine the two remedies and I make a serving of cream of wheat and I covered it in cinnamon; I probably used 2-3 tsp. I love cream of wheat, so it was painless to scoff this down. It has been 25 minutes. Before I took the remedy I was in the bathroom every 15 minutes or so and my stomach was rumbling so loudly; I never heard it sound so awful!! Now, 25 minutes later there is an occasional low sounding rumble and so far I have not run to the bathroom...no urgency!!

This remedy makes sense; absorbing the excess water causing the diarrhea, and the cinnamon has amazing healing qualities. It was used in the "old days" as a diarrhea/upset stomach remedy, an anti viral/fungal and it helps to treat UTI. I can not contest to these as I have not proven the results. But as for the UTI, that is how I got the diarrhea in the first place. My doctor put on one antibiotic that I was allergic to and then changed the medicine. My stomach was all out of wack and UTI is not gone~! I will keep taking the cinnamon and report that back later. My stomach is calmed down, I do not have cramping and rumbling. No bathroom trips in more than an hour. I am going to bed to get some sleep. And bravo to earth clinic for being there ONCE AGAIN in a middle of the night emergency. I love this website; advice you can rely on (take what you want and leave the rest). Sweet Dreams...Elaine in Chicago.


Diarrhea Remedies

Well, I've just had an MRI scan and I had to take some stuff that would show up during the scan. The side effects are yes, you've guessed it, diarrhea! Perhaps I've got a particularly sensitive gut but I didn't find the turmeric worked for me, nor the cider vinegar nor the cinnamon and apple cider vinegar. I'll try the stewed cooking apple and cinnamon and see how that goes. It's got to get better as I've got to do a hydrogen breath test when the 'd' finishes?.Wish me luck and more.


Diatomaceous Earth

I had problems with loose stools and the runs - I just took my food grade diatomaceous earth 1 tsp mixed in water 2x a day - and worked my way up to 1 tbsp in the am and within 2 weeks, problem completely resolved. This stuff has a constipation effect - which is great for the runs. I carry a small bag of this stuff when I travel overseas. Great stuff!

Dietary Recommendations

Curing diarrhea is so simple! Just do a clear liquid diet for 24 hours and you'll be fine again. No weird ingredients, no doses to take, just drink clear juices or broths and NO FOOD for 24 hours. My mother used to recommend sipping a rehydration solution of 1 pint water to 1 tablespoon sugar and 1 teaspoon salt, stirred, but I can't say that I have noticed anything wonderful about that.

Hi Suzanne, Agree with you on the treatment but suggest sticking with clear juices and water or tea. Can't recommend anyone to drink broths because most all the broths or bulloin used to make your own are laden with that neurotoxin or excitotoxin monosodium glutmate. Also advise staying away from any diet drinks because of another neurotoxin (aspartame) in them.

Oh yes. PLEASE stay away from diet drinks of any kind! Homemade broth isn't hard to make. I have also discovered that I can eat rice, so I don't have to starve for 24 hours!

Curing diarrhea is NOT so simple. Bloody diarrhea is life threatening. Bloody diarrhea must be treated with cinnamon, and/or other antifungals, such as garlic cloves, tea tree oil, and coconut oil. Also problems may exist in the persons ketheric template and chakras from past life, (or current one).
