There are many causes to diarrhea: virus, bacteria, germs, bad food, antibiotics, excessive intake of laxatives and so on. There are plenty of remedies to diarrhea, and some are better than others. But one that is 100% natural, easy to make, cheap and effective is: carrot soup.
It supplies water to combat dehydration while replenishing your body with sodium, potassium, phosphorus, calcium, sulfur, and magnesium. It also supplies pectin, and coats the intestine to reduce inflammation. Moreover, it will prevent vomiting and any growth of harmful germs inside the intestine.
This carrot soup recipe is not the traditional soup recipe your grandmother used to cook. In fact, you will only need the juice from the carrots, as you do not want to give anything solid to someone who has a diarrhea.
What you need:
A large cooking pot
2 pounds of carrots, peeled and sliced
1 cup water
1 teaspoon salt
First, peel the carrots and slice them. Then heat the carrot in 1 cup of water in the cooking pot over medium heat and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer 25-30 minutes, until the carrot is tender. Mash the carrot thoroughly and add 1 1/2 cup of boiling water. Bring to a boil again, then simmer for an additional 15 minutes. Place the strainer over a large bowl to retrieve the carrot juice, then pour the mixture into it. Press the mashed carrot with a fork to retrieve as much carrot juice as you can.
Give 3/4 cup of carrot soup to the patient every 20-30 minutes.
