Problems with stomach is something we all know about. Nice as an evening meal can seem, it can turn out a disaster due to many reasons – an infection or irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), for one thing. The most unpleasant part is when your stomachache is accompanied with diarrhoea.The first thing to keep in mind is the list of foods that can help to deal with the conditions, and also the ones that are better to be avoided for the time being. Here is a very short list of products that can be of help in the situation. None of these facts have been clinically studied or proved; however, they are commonly used and never fail.
One of the first choices for people with diarrhoea. It is good for any malady and in this particular case it soothes and keeps your bowlers calm. Besides, it is highly nutritious and contains a great amount of electrolytes; which is extremely helpful in case of mass fluid loss due to diarrhoea. Next good thing is white rice – simply cooked and taken place with no dressings or salt. This product is easy for you digestive system to process and it also makes improvement to your stool, making it less loose.
BlueberriesGrandmothers’ first choice – blueberries are good for stopping diarrhoea. We are talking about dried ones, and this tradition has got a long history that has got Scandinavian roots. Thus, chewing dried blueberries is pretty effective for cases of diarrhoea. The berries contain tannins and they serve as an astringent. They alleviate inflammation symptoms, contract tissues and slow down the secretion of liquids. Besides, they also contain anthocyanosides, substances with antibacterial properties. And they are also known for being effective antioxidants and a valuable source of pectin.
BananasNot that obvious a choice, bananas, however, are also able to battle against diarrhoea, and quite effectively. They are easy to digest and for that matter they are a soothing option for your stomach. Besides, they contain high levels of potassium that also replace lost electrolytes. Pectin can also be found in bananas, which makes them useful in the process of liquid absorption in the intestines. Insulin is also here, which is a prebiotic and thus allows the growth of beneficial bacteria in your large intestine – right what they actually need after diarrhoea hits you.
Cooked ApplesNext to bananas, apples contain pectin; however, in their raw form apples are hard to digest, especially for a stomach that is coping with diarrhoea. Thus, it is recommended to have your apples cooked. Thus they are easier to process and you get pectin as well as other nutrients that apples can provide. However, if your diarrhoea is caused by IBS, apples might nit be the best choice.
White Bread ToastIt might be strange, taking into consideration the fact that we prefer whole grain bread at all times. But not here. The benefit of white bread is that is contains minimum amount of fiber, which makes it easy to digest. And it provides good soothing effect on your small intestines.
Mashed PotatoesLast but not the least product in our list is mashed potatoes. The dish is extremely good for the case of diarrhoea as it is able to provide the most soothing and comforting effect on your digestive system. Low-fiber content makes it easy to process, especially, if cooked plain without any putter or salt or any toppings. Surely, there is no need to stick to the diet for long. These products are meant to help for the period when your stomach is setting down and going to its normal working state. There are other products that can be consumed alongside with the ones mentioned earlier, just make sure they are also comforting for your stomach and won’t bring more irritation.
The list of products drawn here is also meant to help with unexpected case of diarrhoea and it won’t be of use if you suffer from chronic diarrhoea. In the latter case it is strongly recommended to consult your therapist and undergo a thorough medical examination in order to understand the underlying reasons of the condition.
