My Grandma's Natural Remedies for Diarrhea
16 mins (prep 16)
6 ingredients
3 servings
My sweet grandma gave Nutmeg Tea to my mother when she was ill as a little girl, and it safely did the trick. Healthier than taking Imodium. Use for acute diarrhea caused by a virus, cold, flu, or mild food poisoning. Not intended to treat chronic diarrhea.
