Maybe since...: ...essential oils found in coriander such as Borneol and Linalool, aid in digestion, proper functioning of liver, and helping to reduce diarrhea caused by microbies & fungi (esp. components like Cineole, Borneol, Limonene, Alpha-pinene & beta-phelandrene).

Depends on the cause: Avoiding lactose, gas-producing food (e.g. Beans, onions, celery, carrots, raisins, bananas, apricots, prunes, brussel sprouts, wheat germ, pretzels, and bagels), certain carbohydrates and gluten may help. Determine if there is food allergy and avoiding those specific foods may help. There is no one answer; trial and error.
