Causes of Diarrhea Can Sometimes Be Hard to Pinpoint

There are many health problems that can cause your diarrhea. Sometimes our bodies may try to eliminate toxic food or decompose it from the digestive tract.

Another major cause of diarrhea is that you can be slightly poisoned by food. You may not realize that you are a poisoned food as it may be just a mild case. Just because you don't throw away, doesn't mean that the food you eat is not contaminated.

The most common cause of diarrhea is if you have food intolerance. Some people may not be able to digest certain food components such as lactose. Lactose is the sugar found in milk. Food intolerance can cause many other symptoms of diarrhea. If I drink milk, or foods containing milk (such as ice cream) it will always give me gas.

Many people have food intolerances for artificial sweeteners and food chemicals. Many people have food intolerance to food, they are unaware of it, and it can produce symptoms of illness throughout their lives if not corrected.

If you can keep track of the foods or ingredients that are causing the problem, you can remove it from your diet. Anything that is toxic to the body can cause diarrhea. Many people suffer from diarrhea after drinking too much alcohol.

Drinking water contaminated with viruses, bacteria, or parasites, causes diarrhea in many people who visit foreign countries with illegal water. Their bodies are not used to being around these impurities, so they have very little tolerance for them.

Some people may have a bad reaction to any medication they may take. Antibiotics, cancer drugs, high blood pressure medications, antacids containing magnesium, and many other pharmaceutical drugs can cause diarrhea. If you have chronic diarrhea after starting such treatment, ask your doctor if you may have a reaction to the medication.

Other causes of diarrhea can be due to damage to the digestive system, such as in the case of bowel syndrome or bowel obstruction.

Bowel disease can also cause diarrhea. Some of these are Colitis, Crohn's disease, inflammatory bowel disease, and Celiac disease.

Another possible cause of diarrhea is not to urinate when it starts. Holding it usually gives me diarrhea. Your body is trying to get rid of excess fluid, and if it can't come out one way, it will try to go the other way.

If I still don't go to the bathroom and have diarrhea, I usually start to sweat, even though I'm not hot. Your body will do what it thinks it needs to remove toxins or excess substances from the body.

The best thing you can do if you have chronic diarrhea is to change your diet to include foods that will put your body into a healing mode to try and cure any illness you may have. You need to find out which foods or substances your body cannot accept, and eliminate them from your diet.

You need to find what causes your diarrhea, and correct it. Many people have reversed their health problems by changing their diet, and detoxifying from toxic chemicals or decomposing food residues that accumulate in the body.

Including better food choices can restore your digestive system to normal. You will want to eat more fruits and vegetables and their raw juices, and cut out all snacks, refined foods, and sodas. Someone I know says he has diarrhea until he stops drinking soda.

You also want to keep a food journal. Once you have a detailed food journal, you can see it again after a few weeks, months, or years. You will begin to see patterns, and get to know which foods (and food combinations), agree with you the most.

Revisit your journal often and look for it when you feel it works best. If you want to get healthy, you need to study how the food you eat has a profound effect on how you feel, and your overall health. Our bodies are made up of what we eat and digest. There's no other way.

I have been keeping a food journal for about 7 years and this is a priceless resource that I often refer to.

As you can see there are many possible causes of diarrhea, and the only way to find out what causes diarrhea, is to do a small detective work to find out what the root cause is.
