Dr Oz: Diarrhea Causes & Solutions- When Your Poop Turns to Soup


Doctor Oz discussed diarrhea with Ann-Marie, the previous assistant of the day for his constipation segment.  In the wall of your intestinal track are bacteria.  The bacteria live on villi, which look like coral inside of your intestinal tract, which is where all of these poop problems begin.  If your intestinal tract squeezes too quickly, you get diarrhea and if you have constipation then its a syndrome where your bowel is holding on to too much water.

Doctor Oz did a demonstration where Ann-Marie dropped an eggplant into a bucket of water to show what a normal “poop” looks and sounds like.  Then Doctor Oz showed what diarrhea can look like.  If you have diarrhea four or more times in a day, then it can begin to just look like water.  So what foods help or hurt if you have food poisoning, infectious diarrhea, or in general when  your poop turns to soup?

    Diarrhea is something that happens to everyone and usually is more of an inconvenience than a real medical problem. Most of us just grin and bear it but there are those times when it can be a real inconvenience and that’s usually because we are caught off guard and don’t have time to go and buy some drug for treatment. These are the times when Hand Bidet Sprayer can be a life saver. How will this help you may be asking now? It helps because besides using it to clean yourself on the outside in a wonderfully efficient manner it can also help you get clean on the inside. Yes, on the inside = by shooting a blast of water up the pipes. Ok now, I can hear the objections but wait a minute. You don’t object to the dentist shooting water in your mouth for a thorough cleaning do you? And how does that feel after, refreshing right? If you’ve ever had an enema then you know how “light” you felt after, and for good reason. But most of us don’t have time, or privacy (I’ll be right out kids, sweetheart, business meeting…fill in your own interruptions) for an enema, and they don’t feel so good while you’re doing it either. But with a controlled shot of water, controlled by both the handle on the sprayer nozzle and the control valve at the source you can make sure that you are cleaned out and good to go…..for a long time. It’s really common sense if you think about it. Again not getting graphic but you use water to clean everywhere else on and in your body that you can reach. This is just a way to reach a spot you couldn’t reach before. Bidets won’t do this for you; they don’t have the control or the water pressure. Only a Hand Bidet Sprayer gives you the “hands on” control needed to do it right, and no one will be the wiser. In just minutes you can be flushed clean and light as a feather and confident to head out knowing that there is nothing left (for a while anyways) that can cause you the embarrassment of running for your life to get to the nearest bathroom.
