My daughter had a bad bout last week and since I follow the principles by The Health Awareness Centre by Dr Vijaya Venkat, I don't give any medicines. This is how I helped her recover. 1. Stop milk, all cooked foods. 2. Give her a mix of fibrous and juicy fruits, as much as she could take. 3. Alternate it with dry fruits like raisins, date paste (soak in lukewarm water and grind). 4. Rub rose water around her naval area, soles of palm and feet continuously even as she sleeps. This helps soothe the nervous system and then the child eats better. This brought down the temperature, frequency of motions gradually and she was fine in 3-4 days. To help gain energy fast, the quantity of fruits like apples, banana, mango has to be increased steadily. The idea is not to try to stop the motions, but just to step up energy rich foods (fruits) to help the body do what it is trying to do. I know this is not conventional but have faith and it will work. You can give him any fruits and dry fruits (dates, raisins, fig etc but not nuts like cashew, peanut). Hope this helps.

hi shruti pls first go to ur dr.  our ped had taught the BRAT rule - bread, roti, rice, apple, toast rule. these are binding foods. apple juice also helps. curd, chaas, wth rice works wonders.

the dr might ask u to give ORS if very loose and perhaps vitbact/ reflora sachets - but only as prescribed. good luck! Dr.Shilpitha Shanthappa pls advise!

Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa
