A friend sent me this information, so I post it here for you to read. I think no harm trying if you are suffering from diarrhoea. .....
When someone gets diarrhoea, sometimes the solution is so easy, we wonder why anyone has to suffer.
The secret is in rice water.
It is rice water and not rice, that does the trick. I have found it effective again and again.
You take a handful of rice and boil it in a large saucepan with lots of water. Like three or four large glasses. Then you cool that and drink the water. If you are in a hurry to relieve the ailing person, take the saucepan off the fire and dunk it in a frying pan or basin of cool water with ice cubes if necessary.
This gives the patient a chance to drink the rice water sooner and cure himself or herself sooner.
When drinking the rice water, make sure there is lots of it. You have to tell the patient that enough water must go in to line your guts from throat to other end, all 10 to 12 metres of it. If you take rice, it stays in the stomach. If you take broth, some of it may go into the small intestine. But if you take rice water, it will carry rice grains to every inch of your small and large intestine to the end where the problem is.
