My stomach got attacked with something the last couple of days, and it blew up into a serious problem last night. After I had downed the last and only Lomotil in the house (the best medicine ever for diarrhea), Paty and I scooted out to the OXXO to get some more.
But the OXXO was out of Lomotil. Time to panic!
Fortunately, Paty had two home remedies up her sleeve. First, she suggested drinking half a cup of lime juice with a teaspoon of sugar. I was willing, although I lamented what that might do to my tooth enamel. Then she suggested half a cup of Coke with the juice of half a lime. Still a dentist's nightmare, but it sounded a lot more palatable.
I tried the Coke and lime concoction twice and have had no further problems (knock on wood). It just may work.
Or, it may have been helped by that one Lomotil that I was able to get down.
Does anyone else have any other successful home remedies for this or other ailments? Knowing that this may have worked, I'm curious to know what else may be equally simple and equally successful.
