Q. After reading about coconut macaroon cookies against diarrhea, I took them for my spastic colon. They worked.
But then I went on vacation and could not find the cookies when I needed them. So I ate two Mounds bars and realized that the coconut was the magic for sure.
Now I just eat a small bowl of unsweetened organic coconut whenever I get an attack of diarrhea. I appreciate all the things I have learned from your columns over the last 20 years.
A. We have heard from a number of people who find unsweetened shredded coconut helpful against chronic or recurrent diarrhea. Thanks for sharing your experience.
