Pravrajya Suruchi

Bananas: Packed with potassium, an electrolyte lost through diarrhea, bananas help replenish what your body needs and aid in digestion.

BRAT Diet: This bland diet (Bananas, Rice, Applesauce, Toast) is a well-known strategy for managing diarrhea

Yogurt with Probiotics: Yogurt containing live and active cultures (probiotics) helps restore the balance of good bacteria.

Applesauce: Similar to bananas, applesauce is gentle on the stomach and provides some pectin, a soluble fiber that helps solidify stools.

White Rice: Opt for white rice over brown rice during diarrhea. It's easier to digest and helps bulk up stools for better consistency.

Clear Broths: Clear broths are a good source of hydration and electrolytes, essential for replenishing fluids lost through diarrhea.

Carrot Soup: Cooked carrots are gentle on the stomach and can provide some fiber to aid digestion. Carrot soup can be a soothing and hydrating option.

Ginger Tea: Ginger has natural anti-inflammatory properties that can help soothe stomach discomfort often accompanying diarrhea.
