DIARRHEA

Ques. 1           What is diarrhea?

Ans.                 Diarrhea is a way in which the organism rids itself of toxins and bacteria, which is why it should not be stopped suddenly. Instead, it should be allowed to flow for one day to days in adults. Diarrhea is characterized by an increase in the number of bowel movements (going to the bathroom) that contain an increase of liquid.

Ques. 2           What are the symptoms of diarrhea?   

Ans.                 Diarrhea may be caused by bacteria, parasites, viruses, nerves, stress, incomplete digestion, decomposed food and colitis. Milk intolerance (milk lactose) is one of the main causes of this illness, especially in small children.

Stomach inflammation, stomach aches, and frequent visits to the bathroom to defecate. Some fever and dehydration may occur.

Ques. 3           What suggestions should be followed?

Ans.                 Drink water every half hour. After treating dehydration, you should begin to eat, slowly at first, consuming easily digested foods and avoiding those that irritate the intestine. The most important area to treat is dehydration, especially in small children that don’t know how to explain what is happening to them. They should be given plenty of serum- ORS (drugstore) or prepare it at home in the following manner. Put a table spoon of sugar or honey and a teaspoon of salt in ½ liter of water and mix well.

The following is suggested when suffering from diarrhea:

  • At least a six hour fast, drinking liquids or the previously mentioned serum. Drink rice water or hot tea several times a day.
  • Begin eating a little boiled rice without seasoning. Start with a few spoonfuls, increasing the amount every 3 or 4 hours.

If your stomach feels okay, take thin khichadi (Rice+Dal+salt to taste). The next day you can add white bread to the same diet (not whole wheat because it stimulates the intestine), a little curd, boiled potatoes, carrots, and lightly mashed boiled apples etc. Eat light food for few days.

Ques. 4           Which foods should be eliminated diarrhea?

Ans.                 The following should be eliminated

  • Spices and seasoning that irritate the mucous membranes.
  • Milk, greasy foods and cold cuts, since they take longer to digest.
  • Foods high in fiber.

Ques. 5           Which medicines are recommended?

Ans.                 B.C. No. 8 is good. Aloes, Croton tiglium and Podophyllum should be used symptomatically.
