When you have diarrhea, your bowel movements (or stools) are loose and watery. It’s very common and usually not serious.
Diarrhea in Adults. People who eat large amounts of vegetable fiber may produce more than a pound (1/2 kilogram) of stool a day, but the stool in such cases is well formed and not watery. Diarrhea is often accompanied by gas, cramping, an urgency to defecate, and, if the diarrhea is caused by an infectious organism or a toxic substance, nausea and vomiting.
BRAT means Bananas, Rice, Apples, And Toast, which is one of the best home remedies for diarrhea for adults and children. Doctors suggest that eating BRAT is very useful for healing diarrhea. The reason is that BRAT is good in fiber, nutrients, and properties to eliminate diarrhea consistently.
3. Ease Into Eating. Feed an infant or child easily digested foods; the BRAT diet (bananas, rice, applesauce, and toast) is a good choice as soon as they can tolerate food. For an adult, add semisolid and low-fiber foods gradually as diarrhea stops. Avoid spicy, greasy, or fatty foods.
