Diarrhea is not a condition: it is a symptom of another health issue, such as an infection or a virus. It can also be a reaction to food allergies, medications, protozoans (10%-15% of cases), viruses (50%-70% of cases), or bacteria (15%-20% of cases) in food or water.  In most cases diarrhea will go away on its own within a few days, but certain types of diarrhea can cause serious problems. Acute diarrhea can be accounted for as the cause of more than 150,000 admissions to the hospital every year.  Additionally, it is the fifth leading cause of death worldwide, affecting 11 percent of the general population.  Even so, diarrhea is your body's way of flushing toxins from your system. It is often best to let it run its course while treating the underlying cause and minimizing the associated dehydration and electrolyte imbalances.
hi Barney, thanks for your question on vibration and low back pain. Unfortunately, having a ‘narrowing in the lower spine’ doesn’t provide me with much information. it depends on what position makes you feel more pain. Is it flexion (bending forward) or extension (arching your back)? Also, from the levels you mention, it sounds like you have a ‘vertical’ machine at the gym. For these type of machines, I’v efound that a 40 to 45 Hertz Frequency is usually the best to get the best muscle activation. However, you have to first ask yourself what your goals are. Is it to increase strength? Get more flexibility? Get less pain? All these will lead to understanding exactly what is the best position or positions to use with vibration. Let me know and we can continue this conversation. Thanks Barney
