If you experience an increase in the frequency at which you empty your bowels, especially if the movements become looser, you may be having diarrhea.
There are four conditions that can be confused with diarrhea including incontinence of stool, rectal urgency, incomplete evacuation, and having a bowel movement immediately after a meal.
True diarrhea is defined as a frequency increase in bowel movement with consistency or looseness of stools. When you have diarrhea you have more bowel movements than you normally do. Typically an abnormal amount of bowel movements would be a number greater than 5 bowel movements in one day.
The consistency of stools when one has diarrhea are liquid or watery and abnormal in shape.
Diarrhea is the body’s way to eliminate undesirable substances from the body and may also be accompanied by other symptoms such as vomiting, stomach pain, thirst, fever, nausea, and dehydration. Diarrhea and vomiting can cause fluid loss and lead quickly to dehydration, which can be dangerous in very young infants and in the elderly.
There can be many different causes for diarrhea including bacteria in food or water, food allergies, having a virus, drinking excessive amounts of alcohol, taking too many laxatives, consumption of large amounts of caffeine and also some medications such as tetracycline, clyndamycin and also penicillin can cause diarrhea.
If you have eaten spoiled food you should take homeopathic Arsenicum to control the bowel discharge without interferring in the elimination of toxins from the body.
Drinking blackberry tea can be helpful in cases of mild diarrhea.
If you are unsure of the cause of diarrhea it is a wise thing to take wild oregano oil because it is an antibacterial, an antiparasitic, and an antiviral, so no matter what the cause for your diarrhea you’ve got it covered.
Ginger tea will stop the cramping often associated with diarrhea.
You want to drink lots of fluids when you have diarrhea in order to avoid dehydration. It is good to drink carrot juice or ginger ale.
Charcoal is also used to relieve ailments such as indigestion, diarrhea, intestinal bloating, vomiting and nausea. Charcoal helps to detoxify both the liver and the kidneys.
If diarrhea is present in infants or the elderly it is important to improve the condition as soon as possible. Seek medical advice if diarrhea persists to avoid dehydration.
