In brief: "Cure" for diarrhea

First define the problem (do you have soft or frequent stool?), circumstances under which diarrhea developed (malabsorption, pancreatic maldigestion, food intolerances, stressful times, exposure to ill individuals, food poisoning, ischemic gut, inflammatory colitis, etc.
), severity (stool volume, dehydration, blood, night-time awakening, weight loss), & duration. The "cure" depends on diagnosis.
