Topic: Has anyone tried Kudzu Root for diarrhea?
I attended a nutrition class at the Wellness House, a nonprofit in the Chicago suburbs that provides support services for cancer patients and their families. The nutritionist strongly recommended a mixture of Kudzu root (which she says is available at Whole Foods) and apple juice, along with cinnamon, vanilla and ginger for flavoring, for chemo-related diarrhea. She claims that some patients have found it more effective than medication. Before I coerce my poor husband into drinking this concoction, I wondered whether anyone else has had any experience with it.
