Personally, in the rare occasion that any of us have diarrhea, I prefer to use Immodium. It works and I’m not concerned with the couple times a year I might have to take it. Pepto Bismal sometimes works, sometimes doesn’t.
None-the-less, here are some natural aids –
Oat bran is a water soluble fiber that helps absorb water in the stool.
Yogurt helps re-establish healthy bacteria.
Salty foods to rebalance your electrolytes
Avoid alcohol, caffeine, sorbitol (usually in candy), chilie peppers of any kind, high fructose corn syrup.
