Loose motions or Diarrhea is one of the most common ailments across every age group – from infants and mothers to the elderly. Diarrhea is the frequent passage of watery or loose stools across irregular intervals. There are many possible causes of Diarrhea. These include allergies, food poisoning, infections, and stress.  As such, Diarrhea is merely a symptom of one of many possible causes. Most of the time, loose motions is not a serious problem and can be treated at home.  Below, we’ve outlined 3 simple homemade cures that can help you overcome your loose motions without seeing a doctor.

 Probiotic Foods

One of the most well-known and effective foods containing probiotics is yogurt. Yoghurt is abundant in probiotic rich strains of bacteria which help combat the infective bacteria in your digestive tract that causes diarrhoea. If you suffer from loose motions, you should eat yogurt throughout the day. 

It is important that you do not over-eat probiotic containing foods. Though helpful in small quantities, if ingested in large amounts they can lead to acidity. Other foods that contain probiotics are buttermilk, kefir lime leaves, and Kimchi (A Korean cabbage dish).

Potassium Rich Foods

Fruits and Vegetables such as bananas and potatoes are high in potassium. They also contain pectin - a water-soluble fiber that helps to absorb excess water in the intestines. In addition to this, bananas contain important electrolytes that your body loses if suffering from loose motions. They also provide your dehydrated and tired body with much-needed energy.

Eat a ripe banana every two hours. If you prefer something slightly more savory, you can mash a banana and have it with rock salt or have mashed potatoes with chives. 

Citrus Fruits

Citrus rich foods such as lemon, gooseberry, grapefruit, and sweet lime, help to clean out the toxins that accumulate in your body if you are suffering from diarrhoea. You can eat citrus fruits throughout the day. However, make sure that you don’t eat them on an empty stomach or at night. If you do, it can lead to excess irritation and bloating. 

If you blend Indian gooseberry with a very small amount of sugar, the resulting drink can help to calm your stomach. Alternatively, a little bit of lemon in a cup with warm water is a simple and soothing homemade remedy. 

ALERT:-

Dr. Manoj Ranka, Consultant, Max Super Speciality Hospital, Saket says, a person with background medical history like diseases immunocompromised status & elderly tolerate diarrhoea poorly, they might require urgent attention and consult a doctor immediately. And if there is blood, black coloured, rice watery diarrhoeas (cholera) immediately rush to the nearest hospital.
