Diarrhea

  • 1. If you have diarrhea, remember that you are losing fluid & vital minerals, such as potassium. You need to compensate for those losses.
  • 2. Someone once suggested that eating coconut macaroons helped their diarrhea. Check with your doctor, but even if they don't help, they sure do taste good.
  • 3. Take care to prevent or treat hemorrhoids and inflammation.
  • 4. Don't be embarrassed to discuss the problem to fellow "noids". It was once said that noids have more words for poop than Eskimos have for snow.
  • Diarrhea, once treatment has begun, should not be acceptable, except maybe on a very rare and occasional basis. Proper treatment should eliminate the problem.
