Acute Diarrhea - solutions

    When you have acute diarrhea, say because of germs, bad water or rotten food, is there a api paleo solution for that?
    Conventional advice is, not to eat fat and milk products and easy digestible food. Most of these food are of course not Epi-Paleo and are not fitting in the light cycle.
    From my experience I do have no hunger in the beginning and fast naturally but eventually I get hungry and have to eat something, say after 24 hrs or so. When I eat normal (protein and fat) the diarrhea starts again.
    Moro's carrot soup helps and gruel with grated appel, too. But certainly this is not Epi-Paleo.
    I think this may be interesing for people who travel a lot to countries with bad water/food quality.

    Maybe Iodine? Like a few drops of Lugols in water to kill the germs?

    Another thing.. I guess there is a reason why the diarrhea is there, to remove the germs so maybe just let it run its course, and eat normally? Eventually it will stop.. Hydrating would be important.. and enough salt I guess. Oysters would be great because they are salty and full of minerals and very easy on digestion.

    I have not had real diarrhea for so long.... if I ever have an issue it is just for a day or two and it goes away, I do not do anything special.

    If it is prolonged diarrhea I would try to figure out what causes it....and fix that

    Haven’t had this issue in a long time either, but I would reach for some colloidal silver for acute bacterial or viral infections.

    Yes, I think also its there for a reason. But the easy digestable food is said to be easy on the cells, so that you dont get running stools right away because your attacked gut cells cant absorb the fat so good.

    I think that is for the extreme cases, but thats not a really natural solution what im looking for. But thanks.

    Also not really practical I think.

    I would like to know what a wild animal would do in that case. That is the question I ask for everytime. And so far the only way that comes in my mind is prolonged fasting. But when I think of the past century, many young children used to die from diarrhea till 1900. So maybe there is something the mother nature has no optimal solution for yet. During these days then Moro's carrot soup seemed to fight the death rates very good. After all young children get diarrhea most of the time and its most dangerous for them. So can it be that a solution of mother nature for that really doesnt exist?

    Find the source,the cure will present itself. If the animal has a parasite either the animal will win or the parasite. Both is acceptable as far as balance is concerned. Some animals like dogs can recognise beneficial plants (by their light emission maybe) but we have lost that sense in captivity. Accute diarrhea kills if left untreated. So find the source. The question is not how do you get rid of it but why do you get it ? We do not live in the wild anymore so wild answers are problematic in an alien human modified environment.

    Alex, my landlord and her 6 yo daughter have had really heavy diarrhea last days too! Seems to be some sort of virus maybe? The girl visited me several times as she was sick too... but I have not got any issues yet....

    Animals in nature follow their instincts I guess.. So if you feel hungry, eat, and eat what you have appetite of :).

    I felt a little sick a week ago after working 2 very long and late days, some sort of flu I guess? But I had no couch or anything, just a little water dripping of my nose... but I felt a bit sick. So I just relaxed - naked - in the sun, (5 hours each day) for 2 days (I was luck we had fabulous weather!), and did nothing. Except I ate a lot! I really had appetite... so I ate lots of meat.. oysters.... I just craved food. Even if I was sick. I guess my body needed it, I always give in for cravings like that.

    If you do not have appetite, it means your body wants to fast. Easy :). The body is very clever I guess, we just have to listen :)

    Hopefully the bug that rode in on that salmon will ride out on all that water and a little GSE and a lot of sunshine.
