    6.Homoeopathy- Homoeopathy is highly scientific, logical, quick and an extremely effective method of healing. Homoeopathy proved curative in diarrhoea and gives splendid results. Diarrhoea could be very effectively and quickly treated with homoeopathy without producing any side effects whatsoever. Unlike antibiotics and other such medicines, homeopathic pills neither hamper digestion, nor lower the body's resistance. They neither cause any allergies nor cause any damage even if taken over a long period. One point that must be remembered here is that one diarrhoea remedy will not cure another case of diarrhoea, until and unless the remedy matches the peculiarities of that particular case.
