What should you do to cure LBM? What is a home remedy for that? I know you have to stay hydrated when you have LBM and my mom told me to eat plenty of apples and banana to harden the stool. What other measure should be done? Is there a home remedy for that?

There is a very effective herbal remedy that can be made at home. Buy stick cinnamon (not powdered). Brew it into a tea by putting in some boiling water. When you go back to eating eat white rice with cinnamon.

that sounds helpful. I have not heard Cinnamon as a cure for LBM. Why can't I use powdered?

Powdered simply does not brew well, and stays in the bottom of the cup. It tastes less good,

Hi angelic123! When my stomach is not well, I used to drink an energy drink and eat banana fruit, of course you have to drink a lot of water, but the best cure for that would be to drink a medicine like a loperamide to lessen the ache. I hope this helped, angelic123. Get well! :-)

Thanks. I don;t know if they have loperamide here but The LBM stopped after eating banana, apple and avocado.

In our home town the home remedy for LBM is eating banana, they say eating one banana can make your bowel harder. But I think treating at home can be dangerous for long run so try to take medicine and dont play with your health because it can be dangerous...:) Have a nice day...:)
