A wonderful help for diarrhea, whether induced by e-coli, ibd, colitis, or ibs-d, is something called Diarsoothe. It's at amazon. Completely stops diarrhea, colon spasms, cramps. Works quickly. It's very tart, so you can sweeten. It's a remedy that was also used for cholera victims, also used for dysentery in varied countries. Resolves e-coli in 1-2 days. What a blessing!!

What are the ingredients? Can you buy it, or any equivalent, in the UK?

It's a base of berry concentrate. You would have to google it to see if its in the UK- I know it's in the US at amazon, and health food stores.

If your symptoms can be treated with berry concentrate, it's unlikely that you have IBS.

Well, not as you think. It's highly concentrated, and the Diarsoothe worked for cholera victims, e-coli, and yes, even ibs-d, for a lot of people. Yes, I can see it sounds way too simple, but Cherry concentrate works for gout, elderberry concentrate works for bronchial and respiratory issues. Who'd guess....

There used to be a product in Canada and th UK called Dr Fowler's Wild Strawberry Extract that was made from berries. It was one of the best diarrhea treatments ever. It is long gone now, the recipe was replaced. Very unfortunate.

 

Strangely enough, up until two weeks ago I had not heard of Diarsoothe, but have now come across it multiple times in recent searches on IBS.

 

Fowlers was a strong astringent and that is what made it so effective. If Diarsoothe is similar, it is a winner - and I want it.  Especially if it is 100% natural like Fowler's was.

The reason Fowler's worked for some people was because it contained a substance called attapulgite. 

 

A quick google search turns up their main website which lists a phone # you can call to purchase some.

I think the attapulgite is/was the more recent formulation.

 

I had some a long time ago and it isn't the berries, it is the wild strawberry plant.  I'm not sure, but I think the main effective ingredient was the horrendous taste as I think my body would heal anything in 4 hours not to take another dose. :)

Judging by the diarsoothe customer reviews on Amazon, it looks pretty effective. I remember taking a chance on a product for headaches from Amazon, as the ratings were high. It was a "natural" product, and it worked great.  So tough when doctors prescribe what does NOT work, so much time and money spent... Glad to have some natural remedies.

That is not correct....the original formulation was 100% Wild Strawberry Extract. When the brand was bought, they changed the formulation to attapulgite. Google it as Dr. Fowler's Wild Strawberry Extract and you will see hundreds of hits of the old glass bottle with the watery brown syrup in it. Trust me on  this one. My parents and grand parents used it for years, and so did I until about ten years ago when they changed it. The glass bottle is now plastic, and the liquid now resembles Pepto and it no longer contains the strawberry extract.  I wish it was still available. There is another strawberry extract that I found online. I will be ordering it and will share  my experience with the good folks here.

Are you in any way involved in the sale of this product?

 

Im just skeptical as most of your posts mention this product. (apologies in advance if you are a genuine sufferer)

Kathleen you are correct. The taste was beyond horrible, it was the Buckley's of the diarrhea world.  You could immediately feel the astringent effect on your tongue though.  Here is the info from an old advertisement:

 

In the 1900s, Dr. Fowler's Extract of Wild Strawberry was a very popular medicine: "Dr. Fowler's Exract of Wild Strawberry instantly relieves pain, is astringent and soothing to the irritated bowels, has a stimulating action on the weakened system and is a powerful disinfectant of the whole intestinal tract. For half a century Dr. Fowler's Extract of Wild Strawberry has been recognized as the safest and best remedy for diarrhea, dysentery, cramps, colic, summer complaint, cholera morbus, cholera infantum and all fluxes of the bowels of infants or adults." It could be bought in general stores. It cost about 25 cents.

My Mom bought a bottle of that stuff back from Canada.  Brother and I wondered how something that tasted as good as a strawberry could taste so terrible when extracted.

 

The bottle said it was the strawberry plant, not the berries and then things made a lot more sense.

Do you recall if you found it effective?  I know we sure did. I have also come across some research that shows how these extracts cleanse bad bacteria from your system as well. Of course I cannot find the link but it was a legitimate study.

Well it wasn't for IBS, it was probably a stomach bug (or something in a meal that didn't agree with me) and sometimes it is hard to know if you'd be better in the same amount of time (as I have been other times).

 

I still wonder if I got myself well just to avoid the second dose. smile.png

Yes, Colt- I am an ibs-conqueror. No offense taken to your question. I comment about a lot of things- things that work. I'm an advocate of colloidal silver, magnesium, diarsoothe, and aloe-vera.

Happymommy...I am glad you are better.  I did not ask you a question though, I think you may have me confused with BY_THE_WAY.

 

Anyhow, can you please tell me more about your regiment?  Especially the Magnesium part, because I always thought Magnesium caused D.

 

Thanks in advance and congrats on your success!

Can this be used to prevent diarrhea?   I bought some,   but right now I have problems with excess gas and going too often , but not really diarrhea.    Has anyone tried this as a preventative?

@happymommy - Are you supposed to take it to prevent D when it is happening or take it kind of like a vitamin supplement daily?

 

I will be buying and trying this out and post my results on here.
