Diarrhea can lead to dehydration, which can be serious if not treated promptly, especially in young children and older adults. Whether it's caused by a virus, bacteria, or something you ate, it’s important to treat diarrhoea quickly to avoid dehydration and other complications.

Thankfully, there are several natural remedies that can help alleviate the symptoms and get you back to feeling better in no time.

Diarrhoea can cause you to lose a lot of fluids, so it's important to drink plenty of liquids to stay hydrated.

Water is the best choice, but you can also drink clear broths, or an oral rehydration solution (ORS). ORS is a drink that replaces fluids and electrolytes lost due to diarrhoea. You can find ORS at most drugstores.

When you have diarrhoea, your digestive system is irritated. Bland foods are easier for your stomach to digest and can help to reduce symptoms. Good bland foods to eat include bananas, rice, and toast.

Some foods and drinks can make diarrhoea worse. These include:

  • Greasy or fried foods
  • Spicy foods
  • Dairy products
  • Caffeine
  • Alcohol

Probiotics are live bacteria that are similar to the good bacteria that live in your gut. They can help to restore the balance of bacteria in your intestines and may help to shorten the duration of diarrhoea. You can find probiotics in yoghurt, kefir, and some supplements.

Your body needs rest to heal. When you have diarrhoea, it's important to get plenty of sleep and rest.
