Diarrhea in TCM
With the type of Chinese medicine, it is more focused on trying to do a tailored-made diagnosis.

Therefore, syndrome differentiation is a MUST in TCM diagnosis. With the right diagnosis, TCM doctor can be able to suit the remedy to the case. This is one of the characteristic of TCM treatment.

TCM Treatment for diarrheaTCM Perspective On Diarrhea

In TCM the main pathologic change in diarrhea is in the spleen, the stomach and the intestines, but is also related to the liver and the kidney. Spleen insufficiency with ascendancy of Dampness is the key to the development of diarrhea. The exogenous causes are most intimately related to Dampness. When Dampness invades and injures the spleen and the stomach, their transportation and transformation functions are impaired. Hence Plain Questions states: "When Dampness wins, diarrhea ensues."

The endogenous causes are most intimately related to insufficiency of the spleen. An insufficient spleen fails in its functions, so that the essences of foods and drinks cannot be extracted. Endogenous Dampness and turbidity result; and the descent of the mishmash of undigested foods and turbidity descend and lead to diarrhea. In the Collected Works of Zhang Jingyue it is stated: "The basic pathology of diarrhea is no other than the spleen and the stomach." Even diarrhea due to liver or kidney dysfunction develops primarily on the basis of impaired spleen and stomach function.

Special Hints for Your Diet in TCM
Traditional Chinese medicine is a fantastic art of healing. TCM doctors use not only herbal medicines for treating diseases, but also they pay close attention to the patient's diet. In TCM, it's required that a patient should have a proper diet during the whole course of treatment. A perfect TCM prescription together with a proper diet can make you recover from the disease as soon as possible. Following is our suggestions on your diet.
Foods fit to eat
Soft, bland foods are recommended as well, including bananas, plain rice, toast, crackers, boiled potatoes, smooth peanut butter, cottage cheese, noodles and applesauce. Because yogurt, cheese and miso contain probiotics, which contain strains of bacteria similar to those in a healthy intestine, they are also good choices.

Avoid milk products, caffeine, alcohol, and apple and pear juices, because they may worsen diarrhea.
Avoid fatty, high-fiber or heavily seasoned foods for several days.
