How do you stop diarrhea without medication?

I have diarrhea and want to fix it. How can I stop diarrhea without medication?

1 Answer

No way to do that unless the diarrhea is secondary to something being ingested, i.e. an osmotic diarrhea (e.g. caused by ingesting laxatives, carbohydrates, sugas substitutes, magnesium, other meds that cause a side effect, etc). If you remove the offending medicine or food then the diarrhea will get better.
Otherwise, the cause of a diarrhea should be diagnosed if possible, then treatment can be offered.
