Diarrhea is an intestinal disorder that is usually caused by consuming food that is spoiled or contaminated by bacteria or by some other type of internal problem. It can be a symptom of some other illness or it can also be caused by emotional imbalance. Studies show that certain nervous states such as fear or tension are intense emotional evacuators. Other feelings such as anxiety and indecision also contribute.

If you find yourself in one of the cases mentioned, avoid eating green vegetables (cooked or raw) and acidic fruits. A good anti-diarrheal combination is a mixture of apple and yogurt. But the following tea also has powerful properties against this ailment.

Mix the barley, elm and water in a saucepan. Boil and cook for an average of 20 minutes. Pass the tea through a fine sieve, drain the mixture into a metal bowl and press the herbs with a spoon to extract the liquid. Boiled herbs must be discarded.

Wait for the mixture to cool and add the rose water, stirring with a spoon. The liquid will be opaque and milky, with a pleasant scent of roses.


Drink half a cup of this special tea for, on average, five times a day, until the symptoms disappear. When leaving the house, simply take the medicine with you in a thermos bottle. Some thermos caps are measurement references. But if yours doesn’t have them, calculate the amount of half a cup and be sure to follow the guidance.
