Naturopathic Diarrhea Treatment

Everyone experiences diarrhea on occasion. It is unpleasant, but is typically a temporary condition and goes away on its own after a few days. Diarrhea describes bowl movements that are loose, watery and occur more frequently than your typical bowel movements. If diarrhea persists for weeks, then it could be a sign that you have a more serious illness, such as an inflammatory bowel disease.

Other than loose and watery stools, there are a few other symptoms to watch for. Abdominal pain and cramps, fever or blood in your stool can all be signs that you have diarrhea. There can be a diverse number of causes for diarrhea, including stomach or intestinal viruses, bacteria such as salmonella, certain medications, as well as lactose intolerance. Artificial sweeteners and fructose can also cause diarrhea in people who are unable to properly digest them. Diarrhea is generally not a serious problem, but if it persists for a long period of time it can be frustrating and annoying.
