Diarrhoea Relief

Diarrhoea (alternatively diarrhea in North America) stemming from the Greek dia "through" + rheo "flow" meaning "flowing through" (which is pretty self-explanatory,) is the condition of having three or more loose or liquid bowel movements per day. The most common root cause is gastroenteritis, which is usually caused by a bacterial infection in your stomach or gut.

“My love for you is like diarrhoea...I can’t hold it in”

Author unknown

 
Diarrhoea (alternatively diarrhea in North America) stemming from the Greek dia "through" + rheo "flow" meaning "flowing through" (which is pretty self-explanatory,) is the condition of having three or more loose or liquid bowel movements per day.

The most common cause is gastroenteritis. Which is caused by (usually) a bacterial infection in your stomach or gut.

Oral rehydration solutions with modest amounts of salts and zinc tablets are the treatment of choice and have been estimated to have saved 50 million children in the developing world, in the past 25 years. In cases where these rehydration solutions are not available, homemade solutions are often used.

The loss of fluids through diarrhoea can cause dehydration and electrolyte disturbances such as potassium deficiency or other salt imbalances.

There are natural health remedies available to help with diarrhoea. Primarily we need to get rid of the harmful bacteria (causing gastroenteritis) in your stomach - you could benefit from taking supplements containing ‘friendly bacteria’ (e.g. primadophilus reuteri) which help outcompete the harmful bacteria causing the diarrhoea.

NZ native herb Koromiko (Hebe stricta) is a specific herbal diarrhoea remedy that works quickly and effectively to treat diarrhoea and as a general bowel detox. During the Second World War, NZ troops suffering from diarrhoea and dysentery in overseas postings were sent Koromiko leaves which were chewed raw or drunk as an infusion.

    I have taken this probiotics several times now and I must say I do notice the difference in my digestive system when I take them. I am travelling in Thailand right now so decided to buy this to keep myself healthy and balanced as I've had a lot of gut problems this year. I feel great and no issues with my gut. Great idea for travelling!
