Mud butt. It’s more officially known as diarrhea but in my household we’ve given it the lovely nickname of mud butt for the obvious reasons. It feels like it was just yesterday that I dealt with our first bout of terrible diarrhea with Mini.
She had just turned 2 and we’d been dealing with diarrhea for almost 2 months. I took her to the doctor and they advised me I needed to give them a stool sample. The amount of excitement that ran through my veins was incredible. And by incredible, I mean non-existent. Trying to get urine samples was super tough. But stool samples? Listen, I died a thousand deaths preparing the sample only for them to lose them.
Then my mom came to town, smelled her poop (thanks mom!) and promptly told me she was having a reaction to dairy. I removed the dairy from her diet and boom, healthy poops returned.
What is Mud Butt aka Diarrhea?
I mean this in the most non-obvious way possible. We know it’s stool that is more watery but why does it happen?
Diarrhea is normally caused by your body’s immune response to an unwanted or unbalanced microorganism in the gut. When you have mud butt, your body is trying to flush out the potentially harmful intruder and regain balance.
Many of us get diarrhea–it’s so common. But did you know that many of the ways to treat diarrhea leave your gut health imbalanced which can lead to more issues down the line? I know… You treat one thing only for it to cause more issues! But there are other options.
3 Ways To Treat Diarrhea That
Don’t Mess With Your Gut Health
1. Eat a basic diet
As in remove everything tasty. Include things like apples, plain brown rice, bananas, crackers. This helps to give your body a chance to recover from whatever foreign junk is messing with your tummy.
2. Put flour in your water
Yes. I said that. It’s gross but it doesn’t need much. This will just help to thicken up your poop and help stop dehydration from being next in line to deal with.
3. Use DiaResQ®
DiaResQ provides nutrients and immune factors that help support your body’s response and rapidly restore normal intestinal function. And it’s super easy to take since you just need to add water, shake, and sip.
