Diarrhea

Diarrhea is a symptom of a deeper underlying cause. There are many causative factors. Acute diarrhea accompanied by fever and mucus or blood in the stool can be a sign of infection or the presence of parasites. No matter what you are dealing with, there is relief for you and better than that, there is healing for you. http://dherbs.com/images/dherbs400x400.jpg

Basically, diarrhea the body's way of eliminating things from the body that it can't tolerate. It's recognized by loose or watery stools. It can last from a couple of hours to several days. Acute or chronic diarrhea can eventually kill. In fact, it's the second leading cause of death in developing countries.

Diarrhea may be indicative of an underlying disorder, so it should not be ignored, especially if it occurs over an extended period of time.

Causes and Risk Factors

Diarrhea can be caused by:
  • Food poisoning
  • Stress
  • Bacterial or viral infections
  • Consuming contaminated food or water
  • Parasites
  • Digestive disease (such as colitis, Crohn's Disease, inflammatory bowel disease, etc.)
  • Spoiled or rancid foods
  • Emotional stress
  • Drug use
  • Alcohol use
  • Incomplete digestion of food


Healing Options

Diet is the most effective way to manage bowel movements, including diarrhea. Colonics (colon irrigation) and enemas (which can be performed by yourself in your bathroom) can help prevent diarrhea as well.

Dietary Intervention

Four ounces of prune juice nightly is also very effective for the maintenance of the colon and to keep the bowels moving.

Drinking plenty of water and eating plenty of fruit (mango, papaya, plums, peaches, figs, prunes, etc.) is the best regimen for a clean and optimally functioning colon.

Placing a carnelian stone in a glass of water over night (exposed to moonlight) and making an elixir is great for colon health. This water (elixir) can be bottled in a cobalt or amber bottle and stored in a dark place. You can drink an ounce per day to help maintain the health of the colon.

When diarrhea is present, drink plenty of water, preferably alkaline water or electrolyte enhanced water if you can locate it (or if you have an alkaline water machine). Because a case of diarrhea utilizes much water content in the body, it can lead to a bout with dehydration and demineralization or electrolyte loss. So drink plenty of water if diarrhea is present and add sea salt to the water to replace lost sodium. The body loses sodium when there is diarrhea. Electrolytes can be replaced with a good liquid mineral solution.

You can help your colon (intestinal tract) out by periodically cleansing your colon and rectum. Great colon cleansing herbs include Senna, Cascara Sagrada, Buckthorn, Aloe Vera Resin, Glucomannan, Bibitaki, Bilwa, Black Walnut Hulls, and Mandrake (a controversial herb but is highly effective).

In addition to colon cleansing herbs, use mucilaginous and fiberous-bulking herbs. Mucilaginous herbs include Slippery Elm Bark, Irish Moss, Gum Arabic, Guar Gum, and Pamita. Fiber-bulking herbs include Psyllium Husk and vegetable cellulose.

    Q: I am on the detox. I never take any kind of herb or pill that is a laxitive as I have bowel movements 3 or more times a day - whenever I eat. I have noticed that I have very loose stools - diarrhea. I do not have an impacted colon as I have had colonics - eat a veg diet, primarily and have several cups of vegetables a day. Should I cut down on the supplement that has the laxative containing herbs?

    A:

    In re diarrhea, please READ our Detox Troubleshooter guide on our website.

    You can cut back on Formula #6 if you like as you have free will.

    However, diarrhea suggests that you need more drinking water to help soften and loosen your stools which are too hard!

    Q: I am interested in your DETOX Kit, but I am concerned about one thing. Will this product make me want to run to the bathroom all the time while detoxing? Should I take only when confined to home? Will I have diarrhea? Please advise or provide the specifics on my concerns.

    A:

    The answer is generally NO, the detox does not confine a person to their home (toilet) or give them diarrhea.

    It is a great product that greatly cleanses the body!

    Q: I ordered the DHERBS 10-DAY SUPREME COLON CLEANSE and this is day 3. I have been experiencing a lot of cramping and runny, liquid bowel movements. I have not taken any of the formulas this morning because of the effects I've been having. It's certainly working because in the last movement I passed a lot of mucus. I would like to complete the full 10 days but if these are the side effects I can't go to work this way. I have already taken today off. Should I discontinue the program or cut back on one of the formulas? One last note, I have been sticking with raw fruits and vegetables.

    A:

    I WOULD SUGGEST YOU CUT BACK ON THE NUMBER OF CAPSULES YOU ARE TAKING. TAKE A DAY OR TWO OFF FROM THE KIT AND RE-START BUT ONLY TAKE 2-3 CAPSULES OF EACH FORMULA WHEN YOU START BACK UP. DIARRHEA IS A SIGN OF HARD STOOLS TRAPPED IN THE COLON AND THE BODY IS ATTEMPTING TO LIQUIFY THEM. THAT'S ALL! FYI: WE GIVE PEOPLE THIS INFORMATION IN OUR â€DETOX TROUBLESHOOTING†GUIDE, "â€FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS PAGE†SECTION (FOUND UNDER "MORE SERVICES" BOX ON HOME PAGE), AND THE ARTICLES â€DIARRHEA†AND â€HEALING CRISIS†ALL AVAILABLE ON OUR SITE.

    Q: I’m entering my third week of the FULL BODY DETOX. For the duration of the detox, I’ve experienced loose stools. It’s not necessarily always watery; most of the time it’s mushy like, and from time to time I will notice undigested nuts in the stools. I checked your â€DETOX TROUBLESHOOTING†link for diarrhea. I’m wondering, though, if it is an accurate diagnosis of what I am experiencing. Before the detox, I always had approx three bowel movements per day. I’ve been a vegetarian (dairy on occasion) for 10 years, before turning vegan this year. Is this diarrhea? If so, should I be concerned that it’s been going on for the duration of the detox? I’ll be following up the FULL BODY DETOX with the ANTI-VIRAL CLEANSE AND REGIMEN later this week and want to make sure that everything is ok if the loose stools continue through that cleansing.

    A:

    PLEASE READ THE ARTICLE â€IS THIS NORMAL?†UNDER "ARTICLES" SECTION ON OUR SITE. P.S. - IT'S CLEARLY DIARRHEA, AND THUS, NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT! DHERBS.COM - PROVIDING SOLUTIONS FOR BETTER HEALTH.

    Q: I purchased the FULL BODY DETOX two months ago and the first day I took the first 5 pills at 7am (Blood and Lymphatic) and at 8am I was vomiting all over the place at work. I was so weak I couldn't function someone from work had to drive me home and that whole day I was sick as a dog as if I had stomach virus or the flu. I had diarrhea at the same time. I want to know if this was a normal reaction to the herbs. I only took 5 I couldn't imagine how the rest of my day would have went had I taken the full 30 pills a day (which I didn't know I had to take until I received the package that wasn't indicated on the website that I had to take 30 pills a day). Was this reaction normal? Please someone let me know if it is safe to continue the product. I couldn't send the product back because of course it had been open so since I paid 120.00 for it I would like to see if it's really what everyone says about it. I don't want to let anyone else know about the product after what happened to me. I have read the reviews and all are great no one has experienced what I've went through so far. Your response to this matter is greatly appreciated. Thanks

    Q: I have been experiencing very trying health issues for many years (over 25 years). The trouble began when my gall bladder was removed 26 years ago. I had mood swings, lack of energy, and severe diarrhea. Approximately 13 years ago I had an additional surgery for an umbilical hernia. Due to pre-op tests, my physician diagnosed me with thyroid disease and placed me on synthroid. This medication dramatically improved the digestive issues I had experienced for many years. I had very loose bowels when menstruating and when I was ill. I am overweight and have dealt with weight issues all my life. Three years ago I had a scare where I thought I experienced a heart attack. I spent three days in the hospital and learned of many health risks. My triglycerides were extremely high along with my sugar being borderline. I have been tested for diabetes on a number of occasions in my life but never show to be. There are numerous cases of diabetes in my family. My mother and one sister are insulin dependent and one other sister is on some form of pill medication for diabetes. At that time, I gave up sugar and began a regime at the gym. The have not eaten any sweets other than what I get in a little ketchup occasionally or some other kind of sauce that may contain some sugar. I have gone to the gym with minimal results in losing weight. I had a total hysterectomy six weeks ago. My regular GP has been on vacation and I've been dealing with one of her associates. This dr. sent me in for glucose tolerance and she has since diagnosed me as Type II Diabetic. She put me on a medication called "Metformin" and has me taking a 500 mg pill twice daily. I have only been on this medication for three days. I have been very careful to eat only what they say I can. I am experiencing the same issues as before with the diarrhea. Last night I was up all night with this and it is like water coming out of me. I am unable to find a physician who understands that I want to lose the weight, but cannot when I'm constantly dehydrated and feeling lethargic. When I have this constant problem, I am not able to do what I need to do for my overall health. Sorry to be so wordy but I wanted to explain the full extent of what I am experiencing. My friend told me to get on this website and explain my issues. He feels that you may be able to guide me in the direction of a natural product or products that can help me to have normal bowel movements and therefore begin doing the physical exercise that is needed for me to reduce my chances of becoming an insulin dependent diabetic.

    Q: I would like to know how to cure the heartburn. My mom has suffered with it for sometime. She also has diarrhea. Sometimes she feels better, and then the heartburn comes back again. It looks like she has a lot of acid in her tummy. Can you tell me how to cure? She can't eat many foods, and has to avoid some things, but her body still needs nutrition.

    A:

    HEARTBURN IS THE RESULT OF AN ACID-FORMING DIET (TOO MUCH PROCESSED FOOD - ESPECIALLY MEAT). THE DIET MUST CHANGE! EAT MORE RAW FOODS (FRUITS AND VEGETABLES). PERFORM THE FULL BODY DETOX AND THEN DAILY TAKE ELECTRIC GREENS CELL FOOD, DIGEST AID, AND A GOOD AFTER TEA, I.E. GINGER TEA OR PEPPERMINT TEA.

    Q: My friend who recommended the full body detox said I should contact you. I'm getting very bad reactions to the charcoal powder. Both productive and dry heaves, stomach cramping (VERY painful) and diarrhea. Every 20 minutes I'm in the bathroom. Take powder at approx. 10pm and from midnight to approx. 4am this goes on. I'm physically drained and called in sick to work today (I almost never do this). Also important, this month is my 2 year anniversary of my last chemo treatment. I had stage 3 Hodgkin?s Lymphoma and underwent the ABVD cocktail over 8 months. I've only had a banana this morning and a piece of watermelon this afternoon - I don't really want to eat. What should I take to get my energy back?

    A:

    You have freedom doing the Full Body Detox! Abstain from taking the charcoal for about a week and then reintroduce to the cleanse and see what happens. You are free to improvise where necessary.

    Congratulations on beating the HL! Keep up the good work! Stay positive! Believe in your personal magic; believe in your innate healing ability!

    To regain energy, REST and soak in hot water and sea salt (45-60 minutes) daily. However, rest is best!

    Q: I am a massage therapist. During a year long detox with the help of a Naturopath I lost about 40 pounds. However, I could only lose weight while fasting. Though I recognized that I was extremely toxic (very thick, dark menses every 15 days to flu-like symptoms) it seemed that fecal matter was getting "stuck" in the bend of the trans. Colon and disc. Colon. Maintaining the weight losses and good health was difficult in spite of being on a wholesome diet. Digestive enzymes seemed to adversely affect digestion since elimination was slow (once a day). Though enzymes worked well in the stomach, I would only gain weight with the use of enzymes: drinking a gallon of water a day only touched my extreme thirst. I would become lethargic and experience painful menses. Cramps, along with swelling in the ankles. Recently a massage therapist who worked with colon massage laid hands on me and told me that my trans. colon was sitting below my belly button. His massaging in the bend of the trans. colon and the disc. Colon was very uncomfortable. We agreed that massage could help with my situation since I felt great after the massage. I take flaxseed oil, prune juice, probiotics, and cranberry juice everyday and I have been seeing a colon hydro therapist for the past five weeks (once a week) with very good results. Is there a special diet that can help pull the trans colon back into position? I really want to be able to eat wholesome foods and look and feel wholesome at the same time. Thank you for your support.

    A:

    I WOULD RECOMMEND COLON REPAIR. CONSIDER THE DHERBS 10-DAY SUPREME COLON CLEANSE AND IT'S CORRELATING DIET (WHICH COMES WITH THE CLEANSE) AND DRINK MUCH VEGETABLE AND FRUIT JUICE, BUT ESPECIALLY VEGETABLE JUICE. FRUITS SMOOTHIES WILL ALSO HELP REPAIR THE COLON. DRINK 2-4 OUNCES OF ALOE VERA JUICE IN A GLASS OF WATER. PERFORM ANTI-GRAVITY EXERCISES 15-MINUTES PER DAY (HAVE LEGS RAISED HIGHER THAN THE FACE - I.E. LEGS UP AGAINST THE WALL WITH HEAD AND BACK ON THE GROUND). PERFORM ENEMAS AND COLONICS AS WELL. ALL ORGANS ARE REPAIRABLE AND THEREFORE YOU CAN HEAL YOURSELF OF THIS CRISIS. PEACE, OPTIMAL HEALTH AND WELL-BEING BE UNTO YOU.

    Q: My daughter Heather is 4 yrs. old and is battling Candida. She has been on antibiotics from the age of 2 months till 1 yr. old about 8 times for ear infections. She developed constipation at 7 months, food allergies at 1 yr. and a lot of food intolerances. She also had heartburn and was getting bad rashes around her mouth when she ate. Unfortunately, I did not know about Candida so this went on for a couple of years. Despite my efforts of taking her to every doctor there was, no one could help me. Right now she is on a treatment for Candida, but she is so sensitive, she can't even tolerate a lot of the supplements. Her bowels do not move at all. I have to do enemas everyday to keep them going. Right now I'm having a hard time finding a laxative she can tolerate. I ordered the "Children?s laxative extract" from DHERBS but after 4 days of being on it her bowels still aren't moving. I started colonic therapy sessions for my daughter and we saw parasites come out of her. When I called DHERBS, I was recommended to e-mail you. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    A:

    For Candida, please know the antibiotic medication is the present cause of her persisitent candida (yeast infection). Read our article "Candida Albicans." She needs anti-fungal herbs, not antibiotic medication. These are harming her body.

    The child is very acidic and this may be due to her diet (what you are feeding the child).

    Have your child perform the Children's Detox for starters. A basic cleanse is greatly needed!

    To target the Candida, make your child a tea consisting of Pau' D Arco. Let the tea cool down and add maple syrup (or agave nectar) and a little lemon. Let the child drink this sweetened tea throughout the day (even as a cold beverage).

    Bathe the child in warm water and sea salt (1 box per bath). Add 5-6 drops of tea tree oil to each bath as well. Let the child soak in the water for 30-60 minutes. This bath is very alkalizing (which counteracts acidity).

    Because she has parasites, have the child drink pomegranate juice (often) and eat plenty of pumpkin seeds (often).

    For the enemas, make a tea of Dherbs Bowel Mover tea (let cool down). Pour tea into enema bag and perform an enema with the tea as the enema solution. Some days switch off from the tea and just add hydrogen peroxide (half an ounce per enema bag) to the enema solution (distilled water). Hydrogen peroxide breaks down into oxygen which kills parasites. You could even add 30 drops of Oxy-Drops to the enema bag and perform an enema using liquid oxygen.

    It is imperative you put the child on a vegan vegetarian diet a.s.a.p.! Remove all meat and dairy products as well as all refined grains from her diet (as these feed worms and parasites).

    Have the child drink prune juice before going to bed each night. Dilute the juice with water if necessary.

    The child needs to eat a lot of fruits (i.e. plums, apples).

    Continue to give the child Dherbs Children?s laxative extract daily, perhaps in the early evening hours.

    Doing all of the above will cause positive changes in your child's situation. Just remember, drugs won't help her. Read ou article "Herbs vs. Pharmaceutical drugs" on our site.

    Q: My sister is 22yrs old she has crohn's disease the disease is really taking over her body. She only weighs 95lbs. My question is should I give her the Full body detox or should I give her the colon cleanse? Please keep her weight in mind. If you have any other advance to give for the disease please do we need all the help we can get.

    A:

    I would suggest you give the person COLON FORMULA, DIGEST-AID formula, and BOWEL MOVER TEA.

    Also, give the person 4 ounces of ALOE VERA JUICE to drink daily. Aloe is available from health food stores.

    For sodium re-absorption due to loss via diarrhea, let the person eat 1 stalk of celery 2-3 times per day; or, add a little sea salt to some warm water with lemon juice in a glass and let the person drink 1-2 times daily.

    Q: I'm on the Weight Release kit. I'm drinking the water and making sure that I drink a glass full each time I take one of the product. But at present I'm very bloated and not having a bowel movement. Could you please tell me what I need to do? This is not a good feeling.

    A:

    Drink some herbal laxative tea (i.e. senna, cascara sagrada, Smooth Move, etc.) and a cup of prune juice 1-3 times daily. You may also try performing an enema. What you're feeling is natural. The bloating will soon give way to numerous bulky bowel movements.

    Q: I'm doing the Full Body Detox and I have a few questions about it: I get tired of drinking just the distilled water and I'd like to drink the herbal teas, but I don't like it by itself. Would it mess things up to add a pack or two of Splenda to my tea or maybe honey? I can't stand the salads with the olive oil or apple cider vinegar or the lemon juice as dressing and it makes me gag. I have To have some sort of salad dressing. What kind would be suitable? Do I look for sugar-free? Or organic and natural? I found one that is organic and natural, but it has 3 grams of sugar in it. Without eating all my whole grained breads and other fiber, I haven't had much of a bowel movement in 3 days, should I wait a while yet? (I had surgery on my bowels and always had to take fiber tablets and eat lots of grains to get my bowels to move.) I haven't done the enemas yet, (low on money) should I try that? Or should I resume my fiber tablets I normally take? Any type of fiber I could add to my fruit smoothies in the morning? I want to also do the female cleanse. Is it ok to do that immediately after I finish the full body cleanse or should I wait for a little while? Thank you for all your help, I feel much better than I did before and I just started this detox a week ago, lost 10 pounds, too, woohoooooo! Thank you

    A:

    1. Splenda is a POISON and your are detoxing your body from poison. Herbal teas are fine during the FBD, but f you want sweetness, try maple syrup, stevia herb, honey, or agave nectar. These are NATURAL sweeteners.

    2. In re Salad Dressing, as long as it's not a commercial junk brand, GO FOR IT!!!! Get the best salad dressing possible.

    3. The fiber pills are not part of the FBD so I wouldn't advise those. I'd simply advise you to drink prune juice or to start eating prunes. Fruit is you best choice of fiber so look into eating more papaya, mango, figs, etc. And yes, colonics (and enemas) would greatly help you - undoubtedly!

    4. You can do the Total Woman Cleanse right after you finish detoxing. There's no need to wait!

    Q: Hello I am on day TWO of 10-DAY SUPREME COLON CLEANSE;. May I eat a half cup rolled organic rolled oats a day. I eat the oats to provide fuel just before my two hour core ,spinning and rowing class. May I continue to drink Ivy's drink ? It's 1 tablespoon of Spirulina Powder, 2 tablespoons Psyllium Husk , 2 tablespoons Aloe Vera 1/4 cup of apple juice and 2 tablets of 450 mg Cascara Sagrada ? Look forward to your response.

    A:

    You are free to eat as you please via free will. But we suggest the eating recommendations for a reason. The oats are okay (except they create mucus) and the Ivy's Drink is okay (nothing adverse to the cleanse)and sounds like a pretty healthy tonic.

    Q: My daughter, age 16, stays constipated. When she finally goes normally it's around the time of her period. Majority of the time the bowel movement is sooooo LARGE it can't be released or extremly painful to do so. It's so big that my toilets often back up(I have new powerful flush system and it still backs up often). She cannot swallow pills...she gags! what do you recommend.

    A:

    Have her drink Dherbs BOWEL MOVER tea (1-2 cups) daily. She should drink prune juice too and start eating prunes and figs and just more fruit (peaces, plums, apples, etc) for more fiber.

    Q: Is there such thing as, cleansing too much? From May - July I did a 40 day cleanse. The cleanse was pretty much ridding my diet of refined sugar, flour, alcohol, and animal product for much of the time. I just recently finished the Total Body Cleanse, and will be finishing my series of cleanses with the Total Woman's Cleanse. I personally feel fine, but people keep warning me about over cleansing. Also, bringing up the issue of your body being stripped of the good bacteria (along with the bad). But, I"ve taken probiotic pills (1-2) virtually everyday througout all of my cleanses. Should I be concerned with overcleansing? After this initial year of hard core cleansing, I plan to cleanse maybe once or twice a year. What are you thoughts on probiotics? Like I mentioned, I am taking pills. But I'd like to find foods that provide all that I need so I don't have to take pills.

    A:

    Many people are concerned about what happens to the beneficial intestinal flora after colonics are performed. Personally, I think many people put too much energy into worrying about something so inconsequential. If you're really worried about the beneficial intestinal flora after your colonic, you could always take a few capsules of acidophilus (acidophilus bifidus) or a liquid form of acidophilus (dairy-free, of course). I have never taken an acidophilus product after a colonic. I know Nature and my body too well. I know that my body naturally produces everything sold by man in a bottle, and that is purchased from a health food store, including beneficial flora or bacteria. I simply drink a minimum of 4 ounces of vegetable juice after my colonic sessions. If you're into carrot juice, carrot juice is just as effective as acidophilus in restoring good bacteria in the intestines. Juiced cantaloupe is even better than carrot juice in restoring the beneficial flora. Other natural substances that will help the body to repopulate beneficial flora or good bacteria in the intestines include: Blue Green algae, Spirulina, Chlorella, Irish Moss, Kelp, Bladderwrack, Dulse, Ginger, Cloves, Cayenne, Black Walnut Hull, and Carrot powder. Stop listening to these naysayers and keep doing YOU! You're on the right path!
