I work with clients of diverse backgrounds on a multitude of concerns. My approach is, at times, directive, yet always curious, nonjudgmental, collaborative, and validating.

I'm sure that this can be addressed best by a health care professional. I wish you the best with this issue.
The best thing to do is to seek a medical Doctor's input and take his advice for your issue. And follow it to the letter, it can be a simple little thing to change.
Many things can cause this. Important to know whether it's a food you're eating, a virus or infection, a chronic condition, nerves...there are drugs that can stop it fairly quickly but you have to know whether that's a good idea. Diarrhea can be the body's way of getting rid of germs but it's important to stay hydrated (drink Gatorade or similar...water alone isn't enough) and check with a doctor. Dehydration due to diarrhea used to be the leading cause of infant mortality in developing countries...it wasn't the disease that caused it but the dehydration. So keep up your strength. If you don't have access to Gatorade, boil a liter of water, add a handful of sugar and a big pinch of salt. Let it cool and drink.
The best way is to see a doctor for symptoms, you could have ibs.You can try herbal teas, or stop eating certains foods
By using Antidiarrheal medications like Imodium and Kaopectate. Kicking the caffeine habit (coffee, tea, and soda). Boosting the fiber in your diet (fruits, veggies, grains, nuts). Drinking at least three or four glasses of water daily.
The best way to stop chronic diarrhea is by being aware when it occurs, taking reasonable protocols as well seeking necessary help if needed.
