Diarrhea

Diarrhea is not a disease in itself, but rather due to another cause in the body that may be infection, medications or eating certain foods. Diarrhea is known to appear in a form of loose stools or more frequent passing of stools, often accompanied by abdominal cramping.

Healthy Foods:

    ● Eat whole grains as a source of fiber that helps to stop diarrhea, as they are a source of complex carbohydrates that provide energy to the body. Barley and Oats are good sources of soluble fiber.
    ● Eat soft easy to digest vegetables, such as potatoes to make up lost potassium and cooked carrots, zucchini, and mushrooms.
    ● Fruits such as bananas and strawberries help reduce diarrhea and the potassium-rich bananas, the applesauce contains pectin, and these help to reduce the symptoms of diarrhea. Furthermore, the natural sugar from the apple juice helps to replenish lost energy during diarrhea.
    ● Eat low-fat meat such as chicken breast and turkey. Avoid high-fat meat, burgers and sausages.
    ● Reduce the intake of dairy products and choose low fat or skimmed milk, yogurt may help reduce diarrhea. Use soy milk or almond milk if you are allergic to milk.
    ● Take plenty of fluids to replace the lost fluids and prevent dehydration. Drink purified water, herbal teas with honey; avoid drinks containing caffeine and soda, and reduce the intake of fruit juices.

    ● Probiotics: Eat fermented foods regularly because they contain beneficial proteins that help digestion, such as yogurt, soy products, tofu, miso or goat cheese.
    ● Omega3: Make sure you take omega3 supplements like linseed oil because the essential fatty acids are important to protect the lining of the intestines.
