Diarrhea can manifest from a variety of imbalances in the body, ranging from ulcerative colitis, celiac disease, and Crohn's disease. Our "go to's" for this issue are Roman Chamomile, Mace, and Black Cumin. To begin with, let's break down the causes of each of these imbalances...
Diarrhea, watery and more frequent bowl movements is usually a short term problem. When it occurs over a longer period of time, it is usually from in infection, celiac disease, or inflammatory bowel disease. Ulcerative colitis forms from a compromised immune system, stress, or foods that do not agree with the body. It affects the innermost lining of the large intestine and can sometimes lead to life-threatening complications. Crohn's disease is a type of inflammatory bowel
disease that causes inflammation and swelling in the digestive tract. This
swelling leads to severe diarrhea, weight loss, fatigue, abdominal pain, and
Roman Chamomile, Mace, and Black Cumin all address these issues of the digestive system. Roman Chamomile has been historically used to treat gastrointestinal imbalances like diarrhea, nausea, indigestion, and gas. She helps to reduce anxiety, depression, and stress. Mace is a digestive stimulant, stomach tonic, and healer of gas and colitis. She helps to restore harmony, instill calmness, and relieve stress. Black Cumin is known as a "blessed seed" that is "the cure for everything except for death". She is a digestive aid, colon aid,
and good for gas, colic, intestinal spasms, and stomach aches. Energetically, Black Cumin is wonderful for creating healthy boundaries in order to find balance with control, both giving and allowing. Together, these three plants work to help calm the emotions, which helps to balance and stop one from running away from problems. Emotions are directly related to the body's health and harmony, and diarrhea is a sign of running away from aspects of life that feel physically and/or energetically unsafe. These plants help to calm and soothe the emotions and the
bowels in order for harmony to be restored.
It is best to use essences for one month for every year you have had the symptoms that are being treated. For diarrhea, it is best to anoint three times a day. Remember that homeopathy requires consistency. Roman Chamomile can be anointed directly onto the belly. Five to ten drops "neat" is best when anointing a person of average height and weight. Mace can be anointed onto the
belly, the neck or wrists, or on the bottoms of the feet for best results.
Finally, ingest the Black Cumin Seed Oil, starting with 10 drops twice a day,
either in a spoon alone or in hot water.
In general, for the average adult weight and height, five to ten drops
"neat" on the skin is enough to start anointing each essence 2-3 times a day. Always do a test patch on the inner arm to make sure that the essences are not too powerful to anoint "neat" on your skin. If they bring up a healing response, then use the bottoms of the feet to anoint, and meditate on what is coming up and out emotionally for healing.
