Natural Diarrhea Treatment for Children

Strawberries, raspberries and blue berries to strengthen long term memory

Children dehydrate very quickly by losing fluid and salts in the body due to diarrhea, fever, and vomiting. It is important to replace the fluids through any liquid the child will drink and to continue to feed them the liquid.

Chronic diarrhea in very young children is evident if the child has five or more watery stools a day. A baby with diarrhea can become dehydrated very quickly and should be evaluated by a health care provider.

Prepare the following rehydration drink and give at the onset of diarrhea. Mix together 1 teaspoon of table salt, 8 teaspoons sugar, and add to 5 cups of water (if you have time, sterilize the water by boiling it, but be sure to cool it before giving it t0 the child). Give 1 cup each time the child has a bowel movement, cup for a smaller child. Spoon-feed a baby. Let the child drink as much as they want. You can stop giving it as soon as the child stops having loose bowel movements or loses desire for the relaydration drink.

Seek help if the child displays symptoms of dehydration, if there is severe vomiting, or if they will not drink. For babies, you should seek help immediately. The rehydration solution is for emergency use only; it is just to tide you over until you can seek medical help. Deaths from dehydration are common, so do not hesitate to contact your physician.

The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends the BRAT Diet for toddlers with diarrhea. The BRAT diet consists of bananas, rice, applesauce and unbuttered toast. These foods are bland, so they will not upset a delicate stomach. They also tend to be binding, and bananas contain potassium, which your toddler needs to replace after a bout with diarrhea. Once the BRAT diet is started, over the next 48 hours, gradually introduce fruits and vegetables back into your toddler’s diet. Start offering meat and dairy products, once the above food is being handled well by the child.
