View Full Version : Wtf? Not to be Gross, but...

UGH!! I have a question about diarehea. I have been about 98% raw for just over five months, the longest I have ever gone raw. I have had a couple of times in the past few weeks where I have had a lot of dirahrea, but then it started last night and just won't stop. I need advice!!! I have always thought of dirahrea as the body's way of cleaning me out- I realize that maybe I have the flu or something, although I have no other symptoms, but it's been going on for like ten hours!
My question is, what do you think about diarehea- friend or foe? Should I be worried? What can I do to make it stop? I am hungry but even water is going right through! Help!

maybe you have a tummy bug? You may have a food allergy. Is there anything you've started eating that coincides with this issue?

It may be detox... or it might just be your body has come into contact with something. I would keep drinking lots of water and green smoothies myself.

Maybe it is a bug- I haven't added or taken away anything- part of what I am wondering is if it is detox, does it sound like the type of thing that is going to go away at some point, maybe soon? If it is a bug and I am all raw, (I will be googling this in a minute), but what eases the discomfort? For some reason, one of the first things I thought of was apple cider vinegar- does that sound like a good idea? Yes to an apple? Should I stay away from food or fruit or will spinach make it worse?

Personally I would just keep myself hydrated and wait it out. You could always go see your doctor if you feel it's something physical that needs dealing with.
Your body is obviously doing it for a reason though...

Just as a testamony to the body's intuative knowledge, apple cider vinegar is considered a tonic for diarrehea and was the first thing that popped into my mind this morning. Am taking it now, will let you know how well it works!

diarrhea signals your body is trying to rid itself of a poison pronto. i vote for the bug. it's a wonderful back up cleaning system. if our bodies didn't have this built in radar and intelligence, we'd really be in trouble.
bananas will help too.

Update- I am seriously thinking my problem was from some bagged spinach I ate- however, whether the body was purging or not, the acv worked really well, got rid of it in about 15 minutes, thank the gods and goddesses (is that the plural of goddess? :)
