Medicinal herbs for diarrhea

  1. Diarrhea can be very annoying. Running to the bathroom every time is hard enough, but often comes with stomach pain and generally not feeling well. Fortunately, there are several anti-diarrheal remedies available. Not only in the pharmacy, but also in nature. Plants like blackberries, raspberries, lady's mantle, oregano and potato can be used to make all-natural home remedies for diarrhea.

Potato does not irritate the stomach and contains a lot of potassium. With diarrhea the body loses a lot of potassium, so it is important to add new ones.
