We would also suggest the following herbs:

Slippery elm: Calms irritation by coating the lining of the intestinal tract. It adds bulk to the stool and eases diarrhoea.

Chamomile: Reduces inflammation and quietens spasms in the gut. *Tea / Tincture / Capsule*.

Berry leaf teas: Blueberry, blackberry or raspberry. Decrease inflammation and the secretion of fluids in the intestines.

Probiotics: Good bacteria to support a healthy gut. When your body is overpowered by bad bacteria or viruses, you get diarrhoea. Probiotics restore this balance. *Powder form * Pill form * Food sources: Aged soft cheese, cottage cheese, dark chocolate, green olives, kefir, Kombucha, sourdough bread, yoghurt*.  S.boulardii – improves diarrhoea associated with antibiotics and traveller’s diarrhoea. This is a yeast probiotic but acts like a bacterium. Use caution if you have an inadequate immune system. – Listed by Sharon Olivier, February 2021
