Out of Sorts….

It started out two days ago when I felt something wrong with my tummy. It felt full and it gave me a nauseate feeling. I knew what it was going to be because I had ever felt the same sensation about five years ago. And my guess proved to hit the bull’s eye as that night I had to go to the toilet far more often. Yes I had a diarrhoea! A severe one! So severe as if I was purging my intestines with the Epsom Salt! (Heck how can those bacteria find their way in to my tummy???) But I did not take any anti-diarrhoeal medicines too soon because I realise that diarrhoea is a natural mechanism when our body is cleansing our intestines from poisonous agents and substances. Apart from it, I usually give drugs a wide berth especially for those I consider mild illnesses. Even I rarely take paracetamol (In American English it is termed “acetaminophen”) to weed outΒ  pains. I don’t want to rely on the drugs too much (especially those of antibiotics). I prefer to let my natural immune system do the fight against the invading pathogenic microorganisms. By letting my immune system do the fight I hope that my internal body defence will always develop to the full strength.

However, the diarrhoea was way too much, in 9 hours, from 9pm to 6am I had to go to the toilet as many as 12 times! So, on Saturday morning I submitted myself to anti-diarrhoeal medicine. I took Smecta to stop the runs and I consumed yoghurt and Yakult to restore the balance of my intestinal flora. You know that yoghurts and Yakult contain lactobacilli. A lactobacillus is a bacterium that produces lactic acids from sugars. This bacterium is alleged proves to favour the health of your intestines. By consuming these lactobacilli through yoghurt and Yakult I hope that they would outnumber those ugly pathogenic bacteria that had given me the nasty runs!

The result? Yes! Alhamdulillah! It turned out well! In about two hours the runs had stopped and all the uncomfy feelings in my tummy had almost completely gone! Even so, my appetite was just fully recovered in the evening by dinner time. Today, alhamdulillah again, I have been fully recovered. I can even now break wind freely without worrying that someone will have to rub my briefs with Astonish stain removing bar to get rid of the skidmarks! (Gross!πŸ˜› )

There was a stupid mistake in this article. I mentioned “VitaCharm” as the beverage containing lactobacilli I drank.Β  It is supposed to be Yakult. I have no idea why I confused one for the other, perhaps they have similar containers with each other or perhaps I could not focus well so I failed to notice which is which. Whatever it is, it is my mistake!πŸ™‚

  1. So you’re totally fine now. Good. Have a nice new week, bang!πŸ˜‰

  2. Bah, jadi penjaga toilet dong Pak selama itu?!
    Allah hanya ingin memberikan peringatan biar lebih sering jaga kesehatan.
    Lebih baik mencegah daripada mengobati Pak.
    Met beraktivitas lagi.πŸ™‚

  3. What cause this? Maybe I can learn about your food that cause to prevent mine to the future

  4. how can those bacteria find their way in to your tummy???

    mouth……???

    .

  5. you don’t have to wait till 12 times kang..hiii…obviously can see it into the feces appearance and take action!

  6. One of natural ways to minimize the lethal effect of diarrhoea is by drinking as much as boiled water… It works for meπŸ™‚

  7. Adalah basbang jika tanpa skrinsut barang yang disetor ke WC!

  8. Waduhh….sebetulnya bisa minum norit kan aman? Waktu masih kecil, dulu ibu membuat norit sendiri (saya tak tahu mungkin rumahku di kampung kali ya)…dari beras dan kopi, digoreng tanpa minyak, terus ditumbuk, diminumkan ke anak dengan air hangat.

    Atau minum teh panas pahit….dicampur gula sedikit atau madu

    Kalau lebih dari lima kali sehari, berarti ada yang salah kang…..

  9. @jensen99

    Yes I’m in a good shape now. Thanks.πŸ™‚

    @Abied

    Betul mungkin ini peringatan agar saya lebih berhati2 lagi dalam menjaga kebersihan walaupun saya merasa saya sudah sangat bersih.πŸ˜€

    @Raffaell

    Yup. Bisa jadi. Karena arang itu karbon.

    @pabriktempe

    I don’t know which food that had caused me this diarrhoea. If only I knew it…😦

    @komuter

    I said “how” not “what”….:mrgreen:

    @boyin

    I don’t want to take the anti-diarrhoeal medicine too soon, because the poisons should go out a lot first…πŸ™‚

    @soyjoy76

    Ouch! Boiling water?? It would burn my lips and tongue… huehuehue….:mrgreen:

    @Black_Claw

    Gimana kalo skrinsut yang telanjur keluar di GT-Man?? **halaah nggilani**πŸ˜†

    @edratna

    Entah kenapa bu, kalau norit saya kurang cocok walaupun secara logika mustinya sih bisa juga karena itu adalah karbon aktif, penyerap zat racun yang cukup kuat.

    Memang betul bu…. biasanya kalo sampai 12 kali, pasti itu ada bakteria nggak diundang yang masuk dalam tubuh kita…

  10. vita charm?? mirip nama pembalut wanita :p

  11. Wah, komentar saya koq hilang ya, Pak…
    Apakah dimoderasi?

  12. Pak Yari, yang sabar ya? Yang namanya sakit ini memang sudah menjadi hal yang biasa bagi manusia. Memang benar, sakit perut memang sangat menyebalkan, apalagi kalau kita sedang berada di luar rumah. Bingung mencari toilet…

    Saya setuju dengan pendapat Pak Yari dengan tidak terlalu banyak mengkonsumsi antibiotik dan lebih suka membiarkan sistem kekebalan alami yang melakukan perlawanan terhadap mikroorganisme patogenik yang menyerang.

    Tapi untunglah, kondisi Pak Yari sudah pulih kembali, dan bisa beraktivitas seperti biasanya tanpa ada gangguan perut yang sakit, ya Pak.

  13. Selamat siang bos.. sudah lama tidak berkunjung nih..πŸ˜€

  14. pak Yari ternyata baru pulih dari sakit toh !?!?
    wajar saja, pak! sakit atau sembuh itu ujian dari Allah. Dari sakit bapak ini, pasti ada hikmahnya . .

  15. Seperti saya malam tadi Pak, benar2 ronda di toilet.😦

    @mezzalena

    @kaskuser

    Lam kenal juga…. thanks atas infonya ya….

  18. Diarrhea can really be so annoying.
    We tend to think that it’s just a mild sickness,
    but actually it can be dangerous if not cured.

    • Yeah, it is so annoying and sometimes it is very embarrassing especially if you are not at home and you need to go to the toilet more often. The embarrassment is even more eminent as you are in the toilet and you produce embarrassing noises which are characteristic to the sort of the Montezuma’s revenge when you are discharging the wastes from your bowels! That’s why loose bowels can be so annoying as well as embarrassing!πŸ™‚
