Please watch this video until the end to know the complete information.
This common problem occurs when the food and fluids you ingest start passing too quickly or in too large an amount through the colon.
Along with frequent loose, watery stools, you may even have symptoms like abdominal cramps, abdominal pain, a fever, bloating and weakness.
Due to having too frequent bowel movements, there may also be itching, burning, soreness or pain in the rectal area.
There can be many reasons behind this sudden change in your bowel movements, including a viral infection, bacterial infection, parasitic attack, food poisoning, a side effect of antibiotics and lactose intolerance, to name a few.
In most cases, loose motion last a couple of days. However, if it continues for a week or more, it is important to consult a doctor.
It can be a sign of a serious digestive disorder. Plus, it can lead to dehydration and weakness, which is not good for your overall health.
To reduce the frequency of loose motion and bring your bowel movements to regularity, there are many simple and easy home remedies.
Yogurt is a good source of probiotics-strains of bacteria that are similar to the healthy bacteria normally found in your digestive system.
These bacteria help restore the good bacteria in your gut. This in turn helps fight the diarrhea-causing germs in your digestive tract.
A 2010 study published in Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews states that, when used alongside rehydration therapy, probiotics have beneficial effects in shortening the duration and reducing stool frequency in acute infectious diarrhea.
When it comes to probiotics for diarrhea, yogurt is the best option. It promotes a healthy environment of microorganisms in the digestive tract for better digestion. Eat 2 to 3 cups of yogurt a day when suffering from loose motion.
2. Apple Cider Vinegar.
Apple cider vinegar is a great remedy to stop loose motion. This natural antibiotic helps cure diarrhea by killing the diarrhea-causing organisms in the intestine.
Its high pectin content soothes the irritated lining of the colon. Plus, it helps maintain proper pH level in the stomach, which in turn helps restore regularity.
Mix 1 to 2 tablespoons of raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar in a glass of lukewarm water.
Add a little honey and stir.
Drink it 2 or 3 times a day until your condition improves.
Both raw and ripe bananas can help treat diarrhea due to their pectin content. This water-soluble fiber helps absorb fluids in the intestines, which in turn helps add bulk to the stool.
Being high in potassium, it even helps replace electrolytes that may be lost during diarrhea.
A 2001 study published in Gastroenterology found that the pectin in green bananas is useful in the dietary management of persistent diarrhea.
It can reduce the amount of stool, frequency of vomiting and duration of diarrhea, as well as reduce the need for oral rehydration solutions or intravenous fluids.
Another 2012 study published in the Journal of Pharmacognosy and Phytochemistry also confirms that intake of bananas is beneficial for people suffering from diarrhea.
When dealing with loose motions, eat a ripe banana every few hours.
You can even have ripe banana and yogurt smoothies, 2 or 3 times a day.
4. Stay Hydrated
When suffering from loose motions, there is a high chance of becoming severely dehydrated. Hence, it is important to take necessary steps to stay hydrated, as even minor dehydration can worsen your condition.
Sip boiled or filtered water throughout the day. If going out, do not forget to carry your own water bottle.
Coconut water also helps keep you hydrated when experiencing loose motion.
Drinking 2 to 3 cups of green tea is also beneficial.
You can also drink pulp-free juices, clear chicken broths and caffeine free soda.
Electrolyte powder mixed in water is another good option.
