Diarrhea: Main Image
While persistent or severe cases may need special care, for common diarrhea discomfort relief just takes time and a few well-chosen remedies. According to research or other evidence, the following self-care steps may be helpful.
  • Refuel and rehydrate

    Replace lost fluids and replenish electrolytes by drinking sports drinks or other rehydration formulas, or eating vegetable soup

  • Go with probiotics

    Try “beneficial bacteria” supplementation to help with recovery and prevent recurrences; take 500 mg of Saccharomyces boulardii one to four times a day, or 3 billion colony-forming units of probiotic bacteria one to three times a day

  • Rely on lactase

    If you think you may suffer from lactose intolerance, try a digestive enzyme–containing lactase when drinking or eating milk products

  • Make time for a checkup

    See your healthcare provider if diarrhea continues for more than a few days or if you experience other abdominal symptoms
