Are You HIDING This From Your Doctor?
I’m a pretty smart guy… but there’s one thing I’ve NEVER understood.
I don’t get why people drag themselves to a doctor’s office, pay their co-pay, and REFUSE to talk about their most serious health problems.
But, believe it or not, that happens with diarrhea all the time.
I’ve had patients who are perfectly comfortable talking about sexual problems, bad breath, or depression.
But they absolutely clam up when mentioning diarrhea.
You may have been suffering from frequent diarrhea for ages… and if you’re like some of my patients, maybe you’re even keeping it from your doctor.
That’s a mistake. Because diarrhea can turn serious quickly.
And fixing it is a lot easier than you may imagine.
Everyone has diarrhea every once and while. You eat something you normally don’t, you travel to another country, you get an infection…
You have diarrhea for a day or two and then you are back to normal.
That is not a problem and is perfectly normal.
The problem is when you have diarrhea often or it lasts a long time.
You may be annoyed by diarrhea, but it can be very dangerous – especially for seniors, and especially if you are losing a lot of water.
Let me show you how to say goodbye to diarrhea.
Dr. Scott’s Diarrhea Solution
- Make sure you are hydrated: This is the number-one concern for anybody with diarrhea. Drink water or an electrolyte replacement drink.
- Discover the foods that cause the problem: If you have diarrhea often, it’s mostly likely because of a food you are eating. The most common foods causing diarrhea are dairy foods (and you CAN lose the ability to digest them over time). Other common food allergies include grains, nuts, or any food with too much sugar (like soda) or too much fat.
- Eat this: Try these foods when diarrhea strikes: white rice, chicken broth, and mashed potatoes.
- Probiotics: The microorganisms which make up our digestive tract are almost always disturbed when you have diarrhea. Get them back in balance by taking a good probiotic.
- Ginger: This herb not only normalizes gut function, but it also helps to tamp down nausea. Try ginger as a tea.
- Digestive enzymes: One reason for diarrhea may be that you are not properly digesting the food you are eating. Digestive enzymes help to make sure you are breaking down your food properly.

It’s like clockwork. Every couple years Big Pharma introduces some “breakthrough” cancer treatment that’s supposed to change everything.

Now, they are pushing a new type of treatment. And it might be the...

We all want to live long, healthy lives. But most of what you read about anti-aging is TOTAL BULL. Everyone out there has a magic cream or miracle pill that will allegedly stop the hands of time.

Your mainstream doc talks a lot about how important your heart is. And he probably suggests expensive scans, blood work and other tests to make sure your heart is healthy. The only problem is… they DON’T WORK. It’s almost impossible to know if your heart is in good shape. Case in point? My father-in-law died...

When you get diabetes… or cancer… or any other chronic disease, your mainstream doc will point a finger at all sorts of things. They’ll blame your diet… your age… and even your genes.
