Ayurvedic view of Treatment

According to Ayurveda, diarrhea occurs when the digestive fire is weakened, usually by excess pitta. Absorption and assimilation slow, and the movement of food through the digestive system is accelerated – causing liquidy stools. The remedy is to pacify pitta and to gently kindle agni. The following strategies specifically counter pitta’s hot, sharp, liquid qualities and can be very helpful in supporting the return of normal bowel movements.
