What Causes Diarrhea?
Diarrhea is one of the body’s response to intestinal imbalance, which may have been brought about due to any of these common triggers.
Viruses & Bacteria
When infectious organisms enter the body, they wreck havoc on our internal systems, particularly the gut.
Medicines & Antibiotics
Medications kill off some bacteria that can cause others to multiply. This imbalance brings diarrhea as a side effect.
Travel & Diet
Travel typically brings stress and change in diet. Pathogenic bacteria and parasites can enter the body through unfamiliar food, water and surfaces.
How to Recognize Diarrhea
What to expect during an unpleasant spell of diarrhea? You may experience an onset of any of the following symptoms.
Loose, Watery Stools
Frequent thin stools that have an urgency to them are a sure sign that one may be suffering from diarrhea.
Stomach discomfort is likely when experiencing diarrhea as the gut tends to bloat or cramp.
Fever & Dizziness
Fever is a common symptom of diarrhea, and one may simultaneously feel lightheaded or slightly delirious.
How to Prevent Diarrhea
Prevention is better than a cure, and there are some easy cautionary measures that can be taken to ensure diarrhea doesn’t catch you off guard.
Always use a probiotic when taking antibiotics or traveling
A probiotic supplement of high quality can reduce your susceptibility to diarrhea as a result of medications and/or travel.
Wash your hands regularly… and properly!
Cross contamination of bacteria from surface, to fingers, to mouth is one of the easiest ways to become host to a destructive viral infection.
How can Bacillus clausii help you solve your gut problems?
Bacillus clausii is a type of spore-forming good bacteria that works to rebalance the intestine. When consumed regularly (or as advised by a HCP), it can help to treat and prevent different conditions associated to gut disorder.
