Diarrhoea is the body's way of quickly removing impurities and toxins from the digestive system. For this reason it is best not to interfere with such a natural process straight away. Avoid dehydration by drinking plenty of fluids. If after a day, however, it has not cleared up try a Homeopathic remedy. These remedies are useful on holidays, when food or water may easily upset the stomach.
Diarrhoea has been treated by homeopathy.
Diarrhoea requires detailed specific prescribing of the "right" homeopathic remedy.
Trial and error or shotgun prescribing does not work, and therefore we don't recommend self-medication. In fact, self-medication will complicate the overall symptom picture.
Below are only some of the remedies we may prescribe, please note how important the individual symptom picture is. Only when all symptoms, aggravation or amelioration are taken into consideration can a specific homeopathic remedy be selected.
A further consideration is given to the potency of the remedy.

|Arsenicum - This remedy saves a lot of holidays! It is usually the first remedy to try for food poisoning, when the diarrhoea is accompanied by nausea and vomiting. You will feel chilly, weak and rather restless.|
|Colocynthis - The diarrhoea is accompanied by agonising stomach cramps. The pain comes in waves and you intestines feel as if they are being squeezed. Doubling up eases the pain, as does hard pressure. Anger is marked - you rise to the slightest irritation.|
|Phodophyllum - There are lots of gurgling sounds followed by a great torrent of painless and putrid diarrhoea. You cannot tolerate food or drink.|
|Phosphorus - The diarrhoea is very watery and usually painless. It will feel as if a tap has been left on. You may crave cold water, but this tends to be vomited up as soon as the stomach has warmed it through.|
|Veratrum alb - This is a real emergency remedy, not only do you have diarrhoea, but violent vomiting as well. The symptoms also include profuse sweating, coldness, and painful cramps that may even lead to collapse. You will crave ice cold water.|
