Most, if not all of us, have experienced diarrhoea at various points in our lives. In spite of its wide prevalence, many are uncomfortable to talk about it, viewing it as a “gross” or “dirty” topic. Others, may be embarrassed to relate their own experience or seek out practical solutions. As a result, many just painfully “let nature take its course” and treat themselves in ways which may not have proven efficacy.
Diarrhoea is a bigger problem that most are willing to admit. It certainly warrants more attention, as recurring episodes of diarrhoea can affect our lives, not only physically but emotionally and socially. Besides health threats, diarrhoea also causes lower productivity in the workplace, decreasing self-confidence and impeding social lives.
