foamy, persistant diarrhea

I've had rrhea for about 2 mos. now. I've been tested for parasites and had an endoscopy as well, with biopsies. Everything has been negative. This is getting to the point that I am now housebound. I can't go out to eat or even go to the grocery store. I've had to quit working and can't even go to mass. Can someone help????? And what's up with the foam part?? BTW, it's pure liquid, no substantive waste product is in the stool.

My diet has been very sparse. I eat very little. As I said I've been losing almost a pound a day. I do have trouble with absorption of food and/or minerals, vitamins, etc. And, have had bouts before, but never this long. I am also extremely anemic. Red blood cell count being a "3" when it's normally supposed to be in the hundreds. I've been thinking all kinds of terrible things that the doctors are missing, i.e., pancreatic cancer, stomach cancer, etc.

Re: foamy, persistant diarrhea

You need to give your stomach and bowels a rest. You may need lactobacilli and digestive enzymes, too. Look for Native Remedies or Natural Healing House.

Try this diet for one or two days:

breakfast/lunch/dinner: veggie soup (potatoes, carrots, celery, etc very well cooked and then mashed and pressed through sieve)

On the third day, if you are feeling better, add one cooked egg to the soup (lunch and dinner) and mix thouroughly.

On the fourth or fifth day, add some minced chicken breast or fish (lunch and dinner) and so on until you are able to eat your normal diet.

Avoid dairy and wholemeal products for a while. Eat very little fruit or maybe fruit juice, but always as a snack one hour before dinner. Fruits must be a separate meal.

It doesn't help you to think about worst-case scenarios.
