Home Remedies for Diarrhea
Due to dehydration water and electrolytes lost from the body should be replaced. Glucose or some other carbohydrate can be consumed. In adults with little or no dehydration, fruit juices, clear broth and other clear liquids can re-hydrate. Every hour you should drink at-least 16 ounces of fluid.
You can also use sat isabgol (psyllium husks) to combat pitta diarrhea. This may sound strange, as psyllium is often used as a laxative. However, in pitta diarrhea, an excess of pitta accumulates in the gastrointestinal tract and irritates the wall of the colon, creating the diarrhea. So at bedtime, take 1 teaspoon sat isabgol mixed into a cup of fresh yogurt. That will absorb pitta and bind the stool, helping to correct the diarrhea. Be sure the yogurt is freshly made, not old. This is one of the best home remedies for Diarrhea.
