I was visiting my sister in Miami and had a case of diarrhea, and she mentioned a home made remedy for it that has worked wonders for me: GINGER!

1.Take a teaspoon, dip the tip of it on Ginger powder
2.Fill a glass full of water, this is to chase down the Ginger.
3.Stand w/ the glass right by your mouth because if you inhale the Ginger you will have a nasty choking experience, because Ginger is a fine FiNE powder that can be inhaled easy.

So FIRST: Take the tip of the teaspoon and dip on Ginger.(TIP of teaspoon ONLY!, NOT THE WHOLE TEASPOON!! If you need an exact measurement, is about a quarter to a half of a teaspoon, but don't try to put it in you mouth w/ the measuring spoon because they are 'deep' and you will tend to inhale to get it all; a regular table teaspoon is best!!)

SECOND: Grab the glass of water w/ the other hand.

THIRD: Put the spoon in your mouth, (You wont be able to swallow is too dry).

FOURTH: iMMEDIATELY DRINK THE WHOLE GLASS OF WATER AND CHASE DOWN THE GINGER.

Guarantee this works, if you're someplace where Ammodium is not around, this is definitely the best
thing. ALSO IN MY OPINION I WOULD NOT GIVE IT TO CHILDREN UNDER 13 YRS OLD, THEY COULD CHOKE!! IT IS ESSENTIAL YOU FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS TO THE LETTER TO PREVENT CHOKING.

But - we've been told by friends that pomegranate juice is a CAUSE of loose bowels. Perhaps the amount affects the result? I've recently been taking Metamucil (at the advice of a doctor) and it amazes me that it works for both extremes of bowel problems.

In north Africa and India they use cumin for diarrhea.
