Home Remedies for Diarrhoea

Diarrhoea is a nasty bug. Not only is it embarrassing but it can also be incredibly painful.

When you are suffering from diarrhoea this is usually because your body is trying to flush something out. Often eating something bad will cause diarrhoea, but there are countless numbers of viruses and tummy bugs that can trigger these symptoms as well. If you are spending half of your day on the toilet and suffering from cramps and pain, then there are a few ways to help keep you hydrated and control the constant need to go.

1. Bread

Bread is a great option when you are sick with just about any tummy bug. The reason is because it is bland and will hopefully not disrupt your digestion system any more than it already is. Furthermore, if you are suffering from diarrhoea, there is a good chance that you are also quite nauseous and vomiting as well, and the last thing you want to eat is a big bowl of spicy chili or something with intense flavours. So stick to bland foods that won’t do any more harm, such as bread or crackers.

2. Yoghurt

Plain yoghurt in small amounts can help to kill off some of the bacteria in your stomach and intestines which cause gastro.

3. Club Soda

Look into a flat fizzy drink such as club soda, ginger ale, lemonade or even tonic water. Let them go flat, then drink it in sips. This can help your stomach settle and hopefully, will help alleviate the cramping as well.

4. Cinnamon
