DIARRHEA - POSSIBLE SOLUTIONS





Diarrhea - America English spelling

Diarrhoea - British English spelling


Other than dietary changes, I have 3 remedies that always worked well for me. One of my favorites is Thorne GI Relief (formally Encaps), Sunfiber and Saccharomyces boulardii. The Thorne product can be taken same time as antibiotics per my LLND. Calms nausea, stomach upset and diarrhea. Here are some great resources below. Keeping your electrolytes balanced is very important if you are experiencing this issue. See the ways to save section and check out Relyte electrolytes.


All of these types of products can be found for 25% off here: Respected brands.
