I tried the homeopathy prescribed by the Chinese doctor in Houston. It really did make a difference, however, I need to watch my finances so when my income improves I will definitely go back to him. Yesterday I was told about an herb for chronic diarrhea and started drinking the tea yesterday. It requires 8 cups a day to start and then 4 a day after a while. It actually tastes pleasant. I found a site that has some info on it. This is not where I purchased it. Hope this tea gets great results and also hope it helps others. I am always looking for ways to heal. This herb is called Tlanchichinole, from the Mexican forest area.Species With Uses nonMaderables in Tropical and Subtropical Forests in the States of Durango, Chihuahua, Jalisco, MichoacÃ¡n, Guerrero and Oaxaca -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Deppeana Kohleria (Schltdl.
