A temporary switch to a restricted diet may lessen stress on your digestive system if you have diarrhea and possibly related symptoms like nausea, cramps in your stomach, and bloating. The diarrhea diet allows your bowels to recover while also assisting in the restoration of the fluid and electrolyte balance in your body.
Diarrhea, or loose, watery, and possibly more frequent bowel movements, is a common issue. It might be the only symptom or coexist with others like nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, or weight loss. Fortunately, diarrhea typically lasts no longer than a few days.
