  • Hello How are you? I sure hope you can help us. You see we are having the same problem with our mother. She has the diarrhea and has had for a long time. She is very weak from no food and only walks from her bed to her potty that is next to her bed. PLEASE LET ME KNOW THANKS Brenda

  • I take one teaspoon of brown vinegar in a little water, juice or in mashed vegetables, at my night time meal. Any dark vinegar will do - the white or apple cider wasn't strong enough.I take it for constipation - but a friend takes it for diarrhea - so it is a good all rounder. I've found that it stimulates the saliva glands and in turn helps the digestive system.ainee.

  • I have had the same problem for months. Terrible. I finally sought medical help, and I tested positive for C-diff. Elderly, people on antibiotics, and hospitals tend to get this more. Maybe they should test their stool for C-diff. It is where bad bacteria has overtaken good flora.
