What Causes Diarrhea?

Definition, Prevalence, Causes and Treatment

Loose bowel motions or Diarrhea happens when semi-digested food is eliminated from the body too soon for nutrients to be absorbed. This can be because of missing enzymes or absent intestinal cell structures - the mechanisms of food intolerance.

What is the definition of Diarrhea?

Definition of Diarrhea

According to the World Health Organisation Diarrhea is:

  • "having three or more loose bowel movements per day."

Diarrhea - is a troublesome and distressing gastro-intestinal symptom - and it happens for two main reasons:

  1. When the intestine's function is impaired
  2. When certain enzymes are missing

Both types come about as a consequence of trying to process foods you cannot digest - food intolerance.

Other symptoms associated with Diarrhea include:

What are the causes of Diarrhea?

What are the Main Causes of Diarrhea?

In developing countires - poor water quality and intestinal infections cause Diarrhea.

But generally, in Western society - diarrhea is caused by food intolerance - the incomplete digestion of some foods. However - because there are several types of food intolerance which can cause diarrhea - there is no 'one size fits all' diet which will heal it.

You need to find your particular food sensitivity - and substitute that troublesome food. Then you will be forever free of Diarrhea. There are only a few likely causes:

But how do you know which food intolerance you have?

The way to differentiate among them is with the proven Journal Method.

The Power of a Journal to find Your Food Intolerance

A journal puts system into your exploration. It's easy. All you do is track your symptoms as you switch a few foods. We recommend the purpose-designed Detection Diet Journal in  the Healing Program.

You'll also need food substitution guides so you can enjoy a wide variety of great foods. The full series of six Complete Guides (to Gluten-free, Fructose-Free etc. ) is included in the Healing Program. Find out more >

How does food intolerance cause Diarrhea?

How Food Intolerance Can Cause Diarrhea

One reason for Diarrhea is an immune response. With partial digestion (as in food intolerance) - unrecognised or 'foreign' protein fragments are created. When the immune system senses these proteins it responds by putting itself 'on alert'. That causes inflammation, tissue damage and disruption to normal processes - in this case in the intestine.

Another reason diarrhea happens is when the intestine is unable to produce enzymes to digest certain sugars. E.g Lactose - (a sugar) needs Lactase (an enzyme) to break it down. If there is no Lactase present the sugar causes an 'osmotic purge' in the intestine. Too much fluid flows back into the waste products making stools loose and watery.

Member Letter

I've had so many tests in the past that say "normal" or whatever, according to their criteria, and it was when I started reading about food intolerances etc that some light was shed on the possible real cause.  I'm mainly referring to my diarrhea here - 10 years of suffering, endless tests saying "normal" and then a finally a solution that turned out to be a (food intolerance) problem, and relief coming within days by simply eliminating some foods from my diet. 

You'll have to forgive me - I've become a bit of a major "Food Intolerance Convert" after years and years of no answers from the medical profession.  Your website really opened my eyes.  Sorry if I think you have all the answers - it's a big compliment from me - sincerely.

Keep up the great work.  Kindest regards - Jane

How do you treat Diarrhea?

Treatment for Diarrhea

Temporary relief treatment: Your doctor may prescribe medications or supplements for temporary relief - and/or other tests and treatments. Some people choose to use probiotics thinking that will help.  But many are made with ingredients which actually cause Diarrhea.

Permanent Cure: If you can discover the actual cause of your Diarrhea (find your food intolerance) - you may be able to free yourself of it. Using a simple Journal.

Why did I get Diarrhea - and when will I be cured?

Question: Why do I have food intolerance - which may be causing my Diarrhea?

Answer: Food intolerance is genetic - it's in your genes! You got it from your parents, grandparents and great grandparents. And if you have children - you have already passed on that same genetic material to the next generation. It's like having brown eyes or freckles. It just is.

This is a strong reason to find out your food intolerance so you can pass on the knowledge to your sons, daughters and grandchildren.

Question: When will I be cured of Diarrhea?

Answer: Here at foodintol® we don't regard Food Intolerance as a disease. So it doesn't need any medicines to be 'cured'. Diarrhea is the result of eating foods which are not right for you.

Others may be able to digest those foods fully. But you cannot. And trying to do so will only continue to you make you ill.

  • You will be "cured" when you find your food intolerance and substitute those foods
  • No drugs, treatments or surgical procedures are needed - just the right fresh foods

I think I might have food intolerance: What should I do?

Beginning with our free e-book, we can help you establish if you are suffering from gluten or wheat intolerance or if your symptoms indicate an intolerance to dairy, fructose or yeast. You may even be suffering from more than one food intolerance.
