Diarrhea can be a debilitating and life-threatening condition. You can't go about your daily activities because you are always in search of a bathroom. You have trouble concentrating because you have abdominal cramping and you are very uncomfortable. You experience generalized weakness so you lack the energy to do things. Your body also doesn't keep food and liquids down, so you becomes susceptible to other infections. Valuable nutrients are not absorbed properly and this should be stopped. The symptoms of diarrhea and the causes of it should be eliminated, so that your body can return to its normal state.

Raspberry leaves: The natural diarrhea treatment


Many people who suffer from diarrhea prefer to deal with it the natural way. This is where raspberry leaves enter the picture. Raspberries are members of the rose family. Rose hips are essentially rich in ascorbic acid or vitamin C. Raspberries are too. Raspberries are found in parts of Asia and North America. Native Americans acknowledge raspberry leaves as natural medicine for women. The ancient Greeks also believed in the healing powers of raspberry leaves. They used it on women's health issues and for digestive disorders such as dysentery and diarrhea.

Raspberry leaves can take care of digestive problems such as stomach upset and diarrhea. The high amount of tannins in raspberry leaves provide an astringent effect on the walls of the digestive tract. This strongly helps the constant irritation caused by your diarrhea. To make sure that you have such a high amount of tannins, you have to prepare raspberry leaf tea.

    How to make it:
    1. Get dried (or fresh) raspberry leaves. You could gather fresh leaves during midsummer when the leaves have berries. Make sure that your leaves are not wilted because the compound in wilted leaves can stop blood clotting.
    2. Get a tea diffuser for dried leaves. Fill it half full with your dried leaves or 2-3 fresh raspberry leaves. See to it that you fold the fresh leaves. Place the leaves in a cup of hot water.
    3. Steep for 15 to 20 minutes. Once the leaves are steeped, strain them.
    4. Add honey or artificial sweetener to taste. It's a bit bitter.
    5. Make sure to drink six cups of the mixture every day.

Questions and Answers

Just wanted to thank you for this article?

I have a huge raspberry patch in my yard - never heard of using the leaves - we just eat the berries. I had a spinal injury almost 30 years ago - which left me with much nerve damage and paralysis. As I am getting older (57) I now have great trouble with motility and the dreaded uncontrollable diarrhea. I'm not into taking drugs as the side effects are almost ALWAYS more trouble so very glad to have found this on raspberries - which like I said I have in abundance - now that its summer AND I have a dehydrator so I will dry some for winter. Thank you Babybearmian - lets hope this helps me cause it is a problem that is NOT FUN. I have tried: Everything. I think it was caused by: I eat mainly veggies which just seem to go right through me - I do not want to stop eating veggies - just need to slow down the digestion or firm it all up!
