When I was a little girl if I had an upset stomach my grandmother would mix up black strap molasses and a small amount of baking soda. She would wait for a while as it puffed up and then would give me a spoonful. It always worked , so I tried recently and after 45 years it still does.
Several people in my family got a stomach flu with diarrhea. I didn't get the stomach flu but got a bad case of diarrhea. After 2 days of this I started bleeding a lot of bright red blood when having a bowel movement. I searched the web for possibilities then came to earth clinic and found cures for all the likely possibilities it could be. I found a few post that described similar symptoms. I combined these to come up with a cure that worked for me.
Every morning I would make a bowl of oatmeal for breakfast, after eating the oatmeal I would drink a glass of water that had 1/3 cup of aloe vera juice added. As I drank this I would take 2000 mg of garlic capsules, 2000 mg vitamin c, 1500 mg tumeric capsules, and I would chew two papaya enzyme tablets. After this I would drink a glass of water that had 2 Tablespoons of apple cider vinegar added. For lunch and dinner I would drink the water with aloe vera and take the garlic, tumeric, vitamin c and papaya enzyme but not the apple cider vinegar. At meals and snacks I ate high fiber foods mostly. I did this for 10 days. In less than 24 hours I felt much better. After 48 hours I had no bleeding and my appetite returned. After 6 days I felt back to normal but continued the treatment for the full 10 days. It has now been over a week since I stopped this treatment and still feel good. I am a 51 year old male and I have been taking 2 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar to a glass of water for over a year every morning and I take 1000 mg vitamin c at each meal. For my allergies I use a netti pot with 2 cups of water and a teaspoon of sea salt.
To stop diarrhea in adults, pour 1 teaspoon (for kids use 1/4 teaspoon) of ground nutmeg in a spoon. Fill a glass with at least 2 cups of water. Put the spoon of ground nutmeg into your mouth. Drink the glass of water and eat the teaspoon of nutmeg at the same time.
Wait two hours while drinking plenty of water. If you still have diarrhea at this point, eat another 1 teaspoon and 2 cups of water. If diarrhea persists then stop use and try something else.
This worked wonders when I was in grade school!
In December of 2012 I suddenly began having watery, explosive diarrhea up to 30 times a day! I couldn't work, as I drive for a living. I tried almost every remedy on this site and others. The first thing my doctor did, at my request, was order a parasite test. It came back negative (which was not accurate). As the months went by and I kept losing weight, the doctor eventually had me tested for hyperthyroid. I developed extreme, forceful rapid heartbeat, anytime I ate. I would actually see the undigested food I ate in the toliet, it went through me within an hour or 2. I was then diagnosed with hyperthyroid and began seeing an endocronoligist and taking prescribed medication. After the second day on medication, something within myself said to at least try a parasite cleanse. By this time I had been off work 8 months and had lost 30 lbs. I looked like I was dying and I was actually starving to death because everything went through me so quickly. I purchased a good quality 28 day parasite cleanse and from the very first dose, something just felt different within me. By the third or fourth day, I started seeing these weird parasites in the toliet. Day after day, hundreds. Not worms, but weird bug like things called cryptosporidium. By the time the 28 day cleanse was over, I no longer had diarrhea! I went back to work, and now, a year later that nightmare is just a distant memory. I got to thinking about it later that testing for parasites is probably often not accurate because if they came out in your stool you wouldn't have parasites! A real DUH moment for me.

My grandmother always had us drink some dill pickle juice for diarrhea. Usually worked within a day!
Her remedies were passed down from her mother and grandmother She believed in castor oil...or Black Draught syrup...Clover Salve... If one of those didn't cure you or kill you....then you went to the doctor (she always called him the 'pill-crusher')
I can vouch for the dill pickle juice.

Pickle Juice (remedy) for Diarrhea:
My family has been using this remedy for years and years. It really works!!! This remedy is used when you have a bad case of diarrhea. Just take at least 3Tbsp. of pickle juice (from the regular plain Dill Pickles jar) and right away you'll start to feel better and you won't have to worry about running to the bathroom. It really works wonders!!! Good Luck!!!
when an upset tummy makes you runny,a plantain should be tried cooked and mashed, never fried. if plantains are not your taste with a regular banana make some haste.
Freshly made Pomegranate juice is a miracle cure for diarrhea. Make u drain out juice after juicing. Instead of juicing you can crush seeds in your mouth, take in juice and spit out seeds. That is what I liked to do since had no energy for juicing at that time. You can eat a porridge of tapioca root. Combination pomegranate and tapioca root works wonders.
Hi I love you earth clinic.!!!! Whenever I have a problem I look it up on earth clinic. May god bless all you people who would like to help others.
A few months ago I had noro virus which was diarrhea for 3 weeks and went to the er 2 times and almost admitted into the hospital. My aunt told me to take poppy seed to stop loose stools and it worked!!!! Poppy seed stops loose stools and makes your gut normal again!!!! Its a miracle. You can buy poppy seed from a pakistani or indian store for about 4 bucks. Take 1 teaspoon 2 or 3 times a day until needed. If you don't believe me do your research on poppy seed. I just wanna help out humanity any way I can. Thanks, Joelle love earth clinic!!!!!
Now that I have a bout with diarrhea sort of under control, what do I eat? When and how much etc, I am starved but concerned of a relapse. I am trying to understand gut flora, and such. I am 78 and this is the first encounter with diarrhea that has lasted now more than a month. All my life I've claimed a 'cast iron stomach' and could eat and drink any thing, no problem. Thanks Alex
I frequently get diarrhea, which has so far been put down to IBS. I often resorted to taking diarrhea pills, but felt I was taking them much too often, and was worried about long-term effects.
Then by chance, I found that whenever I ate boiled potatoes it cleared up quickly. If I make sure that I eat them with a meal every day then I suffer a lot less regularly.
I suffered from chronic diarrhea and painful gas for two months after taking a 10-week course of Prevacid (a ppi). Stopping the medication didn't help and eating a simpler diet didn't help. I started taking a teaspoon of psyllium husk in a glass of water every day. Within 48 hours the diarrhea and most of the gas were gone. I plan to continue with the psyllium for a while. Thank goodness for small miracles!
Blend one raw organic egg into Kefir. Drink. Instant relief.
2 1/2 cups water, 1 cup rice. Prepare rice using above measurements, do not add salt to rice while cooking. After 15 minutes the rice will be soupy. Drain off the excess water from rice and drink Rice Water warm. If diarrhea persist after 4 hours, drink more rice water.
My young baby daughter got really bad diarrhoea when I was in Europe. The doctor told me to boil rice and the gluggy water that was left after boiling the rice to add it to her milk bottle I added a quarter milk and filled the bottle with rice water. She was happy as she had her bottle, next day she was better two days she was fine.
