  • Rehydrating yourself – loose motion causes you to lose your body fluids and water that is extremely necessary for one to survive. Thus, when you have loose motion make sure to keep yourself hydrated, drink enough water and even take electoral water that will help you gain back all the salts (sodium and chloride) that has been drained out of your body due to loose motion. 

If not electoral water, make sure to have water mixed with sugar and salt that will fill up for the lost minerals. Tips for making the solution, add half teaspoon of salt and six teaspoons of sugar to 1 litre water and make sure have it sip by sip at regular intervals. And during this time, also make sure to avoid drinks with caffeine, alcohol, beverages or very hot drinks, that might harm your already upset stomach a bit more. 

  • Eat a recovery diet – The most important thing to do while you are suffering from loose motion is to have a light weight healthy diet that doesn’t consist of oily and spicy foods. People suffering with loose motion can include the BRAT diet for a day or two. The BRAT diet consists of,

B – Bananas

R – Rice

A – Apple Sauce

T – Toast

This diet prevents bowels from working too hard. The BRAT diet is not a nutrionally balanced diet thus should only be followed until you feel unwell.

  • Ginger Tea – Ginger has many nutritional benefits and is helpful in treating many ailments. Thus, when it comes to loose motion, ginger tea yet again proves to be effective as it aids digestion, decreases stagnation of food and thus strengthens the tummy.

  • Ginger and Salt Tea – As already mentioned above that Ginger Tea is very effective in treating loose motion, but if you add a pinch of salt in in your tea then, the ginger and salt will not only stop your loose motion immediately but also helps you with the stomach ache. Drink it two to three times with regular intervals and it will help you feel better. 

  • Another remedy through food and drinks to stop your loose motion is Coriander and lemon water – Lemon is not only high in Vitamin C but also has anti – inflammatory properties, which helps stops loose motion. Also the coriander has Linalool and Borneol oils in them which helps with the indigestion and also provides aid for proper liver functioning. Thus Coriander and Lemon water is a good cure for the loose motion. 

  • Pomegranates – Pomegranates or Pomegranates juice is a good and fast remedy for the loose motion. And not just the fruit that is effective in stopping the loose motion but the leaves of the Pomegranate tree is also very effective and helpful in treating loose motions. Pomegranates also has other nutritional values that helps increase your blood haemoglobin as well.  

  • Carom seeds with warm water – Carom seeds prove to be an effective method to stop indigestion and loose motion. A cup of warm carom seed tea helps you with digestion and gets rid of the bloating and the flatulence. 

  • And last but not the least when suffering from loose motions have rice mixed with curd and mashed potatoes with only a pinch of salt – This is the comfort food that gives your already over worked stomach some rest as it doesn’t needs much energy to digest these foods and having a light meal that will cool down your stomach is very important thus, having rice mixed with curd and mashed potatoes with just a pinch of salt is exactly that. 

Thus the above mentioned home remedies are some of the best home remedies to cure loose motion at home without the need of you visiting the doctor but also make sure that if  these remedies don’t prove to be fruitful enough then make sure to take some medicines, as everyone’s body type is different. What may be effective to one may not be effective to the other, thus make sure to act according to your body type. Also even after taking medicines, you don’t happen to get any relief, visit the doctor immediately as loose motions can really be dangerous to your body because of the loss of the important salts and minerals and water with the discharge of your loose stools. This may in return have some adverse effects on your body thus, make sure to visit the doctor if the situation goes out of your hands. 

And as we all know, “precaution is better than cure”, my dear friends make sure to eat healthy and a balanced diet and even when you tend to have junk food or oil or spicy foods, make sure to eat it in limited quantity and not over eat.
