Here Are The Best Diarrhea Remedies For FAST Relief!
Did you know that about 5 percent of people in the US have a loose bowel movement at any given time. That is one in every 20 people...
When a person has a suspicious diarrhea they usually see a doctor, right?
Conventional medical treatment is looking to correct the cause of diarrhea (if possible), and help with loose stools.
Chronic diarrhea can have a serious effect on the quality of life and overall health.
Chronic diarrhea is a part of many Crohn's disease patients.
That is exactly why I was always looking for more than just traditional medicine. I wanted to repair my whole digestive system. And I did just that by introducing a holistic approach into my life.
Chronic diarrhea is usually defined as loose stools that last for at least 4 to 6 weeks. It usually occurs more than 2 times daily.
Loose bowel movement can be a symptom of chronic disorders like Crohns disease, Ulcerative colitis, Celiac disease, Irritable bowel syndrome, and more.
Treatment of chronic diarrhea should be a very serious and very thorough job. Especially if you decide to really heal your whole body first. You will have to start listening to you body more than ever. No one else can do it or will do it for you.

For years, doctors would write prescriptions for something to stop this symptom right away. That has changed.
Now, the idea is to let nature take its course and let the body get rid of the “invader”, unless there’s a bigger problem behind it.
The thought is that this problem would stop faster if you let the digestive tract cleanse itself without medications to actually stop it. The digestive system is efficient enough most of the time to get rid of the harmful "invaders".
Chronic loose bowel movements that just don’t go away can be a warning sign from your body. Like a red flag!!
For patients with Crohn's disease who have chronic diarrhea, it can become challenging to stop it. But it’s also a warning sign that the disease is not under full control. Make sure to tell your doctor that the symptom is still there and try to learn new holistic ways to incorporate into your traditional treatment.
Diet is an important part of holistic healing. You need to know that carbohydrates get absorbed faster and easier than proteins. Most of the time carbs won’t cause as much pain or diarrhea for patient with chronic inflammatory bowel problems.
But eating only carbs is not enough nutrition for the human body. Proteins are needed for strength. They are necessary to repair digestive tract. Or at least that's what most health care practitioners will tell you.
Chronic diarrhea should eventually stop if you treat the underlying problem.
In Crohn's disease, diarrhea usually happens during flare ups. Treating chronic diarrhea for most patients with an autoimmune disease would really be stopping the symptom. But the diarrhea cure is really getting to the root of the problem and getting rid of the cause.
Sometimes, the doctor will prescribe you Xifaxan. This is a medication that seems to be moderately effective. It’s indicated for traveler’s diarrhea but works for Crohns patients, too.
There is also a very known medication for diarrhea called Imodium (loperamide). It usually works fast for persistent diarrhea and stops the symptom but it's a last resort medication.
When looking for diarrhea cures, take a more natural approach to chronic diarrhea treatment. You can try diarrhea remedies:
You may want to try any of these natural diarrhea remedies:
Don’t forget to take care of the anal area when having chronic diarrhea. It’s very sensitive and easily irritated. Try not to use dry toilet paper, but use soft, wet tissues. Pat dry the skin with soft tissues and apply a very thin layer of organic moisturizer or Vaseline every time you use the bathroom to prevent serious irritation.
I wish you all to stay healthy!
