How to fight diarrhea?
Diarrhea holds statistically the second place in the rating of the most common human conditions. Some people, though, hardly consider 'loose bowels' a condition. However, the same statistic proves high rates of death in children with the cause being 'diarrhea'. Each year diarrhea kills 760 thousands children under 5 years in the world every year.

Diarrhea is a serious intestinal disorder. In Greek, 'diarrheo' means 'I flow through'. There is no need to explain this phrase because feces can be discharged by the stomach up to 4–7 times daily. Frequent defecation comes along with the loosening of feces that can contain some impurities. Usually a loose stool follows abdominal rumbling, bulging, and aching, and it is quite common that the patient feels nausea. Stool color can be different from the normal feces varying from black to pale and to green. Everything depends on degree and the cause of the stomach disorder.

Diarrhea can be produced in several different ways:
bacterial infections: dysentery, salmonella;
food poisoning with spoiled or dirty food;
inappropriate combination of different foods (milk with pickles);
unbalanced ration (e. g. eating too much uncooked vegetable food);

pre-existing intestinal diseases (gastritis, colitis, pancreatitis, hepatitis, etc.);
