There is a deep relationship between good digestion and body nutrition. Howsoever, balanced the meal may be, sometimes our body cannot have the desired benefit from the food because of the digestive disturbances.

It is because of incomplete digestion and ab­sorption of the food. Diarrhea is one of the digestive disorders.

In diarrhea a patient passes loose, watery and unformed stools from the body.

The number may vary from several stools per day to a few every hour. In diarrhea absorp­tion and digestion of nutrients is lowered considerably. This disease is very common among children and old persons.
