There are some Herbal Remedies for Diarrhoea
Diarrhoea may be caused by acute indigestion or because of an infection. In severe cases of infection, blood and mucus will be found mixed in the stools. In such cases, expert treatment will be required. Simple diarrhea can be cured more easily. The symptoms of this are frequent, loose or watery motion, sometimes vomiting, a slight stomachache, fatigue and thirst; and, in some cases, especially children, a slight fever.
