Diarrhea,Liver and constipation
Diarrhea is a symptom of an illness that can be simple or serious. Like colds and coughs, diarrhea is a purification process initiated by the body to get rid of something (toxins, poison, etc.) as a result of food, viral, bacterial, parasitic or drug poisoning. But here it is difficult to let it go for long because of the risks of discomfort, fatigue, dehydration and thickened blood. In addition, three to five days of chronic diarrhea can kill a robust, healthy man.
--In order to avoid dehydration, it is essential to drink eight to ten glasses of liquid per day (water, broth, herbal tea, soup, fruit juice) to replace the losses. Water remains the best drink for rehydration. Fruit juices (especially orange juice), sodas, and energy drinks are good treatments, but only for adults because in children they have the opposite effect and can make diarrhea worse and even cause illness. vomiting. Avoid milk, sparkling mineral water, tea and coffee. To ensure rehydration, it is better to drink small amounts of fluids often to allow the body to absorb it. It is better to drink liquid between meals rather than as a side dish.
--There are very effective rehydration drinks (electrolyte fluids) in pharmacies. Rice water, obtained by boiling two to three tablespoons of rice in a liter of water to which are added two tablespoons of sugar and half a teaspoon of salt, is one of the best home remedies to cure diarrhea for both children and adults.
- When reintroducing solid food, one should avoid foods rich in fiber such as whole grain cereals and breads, legumes (dry beans, dry peas, etc.), and dried fruits such as apricots or dates. You should also avoid consuming vegetables that promote intestinal gas such as cabbage, turnip, onion and corn. It is also better to reduce your fat intake, and not to eat fried foods. This diet, low in fiber, should not be followed for long by a healthy person.
--Sweet foods such as sweets and desserts, spicy foods, fatty foods, alcohol, caffeine, and chocolate should be avoided. Very hot or very cold foods also make diarrhea worse, so it is recommended to serve them at room temperature. Milk and dairy products (except yogurt) should be removed from the diet temporarily for at least 24 hours, especially when lactose intolerance is suspected.
- In order not to make diarrhea worse, one should avoid consuming foods that will not be digested, such as milk, cheese, ice cream, butter, green vegetables, acidic fruits (citrus fruits, sour apples, green strawberries) and meats, especially salted meats, as well as pastries and cold cuts.
- Foods high in fiber such as unpeeled fruits and raw vegetables (especially beans, cabbage, corn and onions), legumes, nuts and whole-grain cereals should be completely eliminated from the diet. presence of diarrhea.
- In case of diarrhea, it is important to reintroduce solid food as soon as possible. Chicken noodle soups, carrot soups (without milk), homemade vegetable soup, and boiled peeled vegetables are some of the best foods to cure diarrhea. To return quietly to a normal diet, we will favor starchy foods such as white rice, white bread, potatoes and pasta made from white flour for a few days. Lean tender meats, chicken (skinless), lean fish and bananas are usually well tolerated. Lean (plain) yogurt has a reputation for preventing diarrhea. It remains a food of choice for rebuilding the bacterial flora of the intestine.
- In addition, it is important to choose vegetables that are low in fiber such as potatoes, cucumbers, peppers, and fruits such as melon, grapefruit, bananas, clementines and pineapple.
- Boil a handful of small stems of Guieria Senegalensis with the leaves for 10 minutes in a liter of water. Drink a small glass twice a day.
- The "monkey bread" contains black seeds embedded in a white floury pulp. This pulp is a powerful anti-diarrhea because of its high concentration of carbohydrates and pectic matter. It is particularly recommended for the rehydration of infants.
Mix, after removing the seeds, 100 grams of dried fruit pulp in 100ml water and drink it during meal.
Drink a decoction of the guava leaves.
