This is nothing but passing loose or water stools.
This is quite common and everyone must have faced at least once in his
or her life. This could be with sudden onset often cased by something
eaten such as food poisoning virus or bacteria. This may be due to
change in water, food, climate or the geographical area which is known
as traveler’s diarrhea.
Certain diseases do bring diarrhea like celiac disease, irritable bowel syndrome, diabetic diarrhea, Crohn’s disease, enteric fever and cholera. Sometimes stress or anxiety may produce diarrhea.
This could be the fatal condition as the body looses important electrolytes in the form of watery stools. Millions of children die due to this even in present world. All the bodily systems stops working because of lack of fluid in the body when the body looses its electrolytes. Cells start dying and so the body.
Ayurveda believes this to be jaladosha (contaminated water oriented situation). When the aama (undigested material that works on the body as toxins) is produced by the body due to many reasons, body starts making watery stools.
