We notice some people very frequently rushing to toilet and this process keeps repeating a lot of times. It is a funny situation when it is not happening to you. The person who is going to bathroom so many times would be frustrated and tired. Why is it happening to him/her? It is because the person has Loose motion.

Loose Motion or also known as diarrhea is frequent passage of loose stools or watery unformed stools. Loose Motion can drain all your energy as each time you pass loose stools; you are losing water and minerals from your body.

Loose Motion is not a serious condition in adults. However, for infants it can cause serious health issues due to loss of important nutrients from body. In adults, Loose motion can cause weakness, weight loss, loss of appetite, pain in stomach, dry mouth, etc. If you don’t take good quantity of water during Loose motion, you can end up dehydrated.

There are various factors that can trigger Loose motion. Food that is not digested, food poisoning or infection from bacteria, food allergies, some medicines, too much eating, less nutrition, stress, too much intake of alcohol, etc. are all causes for Loose motion. Loose Motion can usually stay for 2-3 days. It actually flushes out the entire toxin from body and stops by itself if not treated sometimes. It also depends on every individual’s capacity to keep passing loose stools. Some people become weak just by 2-5 times visit to bathroom. If not treated properly, Loose Motion can become life threatening.

Loose Motion can also be due to irritable bowel movement or chronic disease of large intestine which requires proper medical treatment. The not so serious Loose motion can be treated through simple and natural readily available contents at home.
