Fermented foods such as sauerkraut, tempeh, and miso are examples.
Yogurt with ample amounts
of live cultures and that is low in sugar.

fiber such as oatmeal, beans, rice bran, and apple pulp improve recovery.

Foods to Avoid
To reduce diarrhea avoid
foods high in sugar and fructose. This
would include juices and soda pop.
