A Quick and Effective Remedy for Diarrhea While Traveling

Traveling can be an exhilarating experience, but it can also come with its own set of challenges. One of the most unexpected and inconvenient issues is a sudden bout of diarrhea.

Whether it's due to unfamiliar food or a different water source, finding a quick and effective remedy is crucial, especially when you're far from medical help. Here's a simple yet highly effective solution using a common ingredient: tea leaves.

How to Use Tea Leaves to Cure Diarrhea


1-2 teaspoons of dry tea leaves (from any regular tea bag)

100-150 ml of water


Tear open a tea bag and swallow the dry tea leaves without chewing.

Immediately drink about 100-150 ml of water.

Avoid eating anything for about 30 minutes to allow the tea leaves to take effect.

This method is a quick fix that can be done anywhere, even if you're in the middle of a remote conference venue.

Note - don't use flavoured teas. Just a regular black tea.

My Personal Experience

I was once traveling for a conference, and the breakfast at the venue suddenly didn't agree with me. The location was remote, and with only 30 minutes before I had to speak on a panel, I had no time to search for medicine. I took the fantastic advice from Entrepreneur and Author Archana Garodia Gupta, I took 1-2 teaspoons of dry tea leaves and washed them down with water. Miraculously, it worked like a charm, and I was able to speak on the dias without any further issues.

Why It Works

Tea leaves contain tannins, which have astringent properties that help reduce intestinal inflammation and decrease fluid secretion, effectively halting diarrhea. This simple remedy can be a lifesaver when you need a quick solution and don't have access to over-the-counter medications.
