Diarrhea and cramps alternative cures: how do I stop diarrhea and cramps?

Diarrhea is caused by an infection that has affected your stomach. If you have eaten food that is not cooked properly or impure water, then you could have caught an infection. Sometimes, medication also causes diarrhea. If you are on some kind of medication, then you should consult your doctor about the side effects of this medicine. Cramps are painful contractions of your stomach muscles. These usually occur periodically and leave you feeling weak and drained out.

If your bout of diarrhea is accompanied by an inability to keep down any food at all, blood or pus in your stools or fever, then you should consult your doctor at the earliest. You should drink plenty of fluids when you have diarrhea. Drink water or even sugared carbonated drinks but avoid drinking alcoholic beverages, tea, and coffee. You can eat plenty of yogurt and drink buttermilk. You can also eat some rice that has been cooked till it is soft and can be easily digested. Drinking black tea is generally considered an effective remedy for diarrhea. For your stomach cramps, you can try using asafetida. You can make a paste using a small amount of asafetida and some water and apply this on your stomach. Concentrate on the area around the belly button. Let this dry on your stomach. You can also eat a pinch of asafetida, wrapped in some brown sugar. A hot water bottle will also give you relief from the cramps.
