It seems that it is always something. If we aren’t constipated, then we have diarrhea. Neither is good, but diarrhea can also be dangerous. Diarrhea can cause dehydration, particularly in children and older people. So when we or a member of our family is suffering from diarrhea, the first objective is to stop it.

Many things can cause diarrhea. Eating too much of a good thing, for example, can certainly causes diarrhea, but not eating enough of a good thing can also cause diarrhea. There are many prescription and over-the-counter drugs that can cause diarrhea, as well.

Diarrhea is not a human malady that started in the twenty-first century. People have suffered with diarrhea down through the ages, so you know that there are hundreds, maybe thousands, of home remedies to alleviate the problem.

Many people say that eating yogurt (plain and unflavored) will correct the chemical balance in the digestive tract and stem diarrhea at its source. This home remedy is actually supported by some medical studies that have been conducted over the last several years.

It has been noted down through the years that increasing the fiber in the diet will help to alleviate diarrhea. Soluble fiber is the best. Soluble fiber is found in foods like whole grains, fruits, and vegetables. Other home remedies for diarrhea are:

* Fresh apples (with the skin) and bananas are also useful in helping to stop diarrhea.

* Acidophilus (found in yogurt) mixed with nutmeg is known to help control diarrhea.

* Cinnamon tea and pure honey is supposed to curb diarrhea.

* Heat cow’s milk to a boil, cool, and drink all of it including the film that will form.

* The BRAT diet is said to control diarrhea. BRAT stands for Bananas, Rice, Apples and Toast.

* Boil 1/4 cup rice in 2 cups water until the rice is tender. Then strain out the rice and drink the water.
