Simplest Remedy for Diarrhea

Dr Abe V Rotor

Every year diarrhea claims the lives of 3 million people, with nearly 2 million of them children under five years old. Yet a simple and inexpensive treatment can prevent many of those deaths.

Here is a simple formula for oral rehydration:
fistful of sugar + a pinch of salt + a jug of water.

This old home remedy is now recognized by the World Health Organization (WHO) which claims that it has saved some 40 million lives, and hopes to demote diarrhea as the second leading cause of death among children.

Note: If symptoms persist, see a medical doctor. ~
