A conducted therapy measure for this diarrhea is massaging patient’s abdomen which is intended to normalize the Aorta abdominal function. A patient with this type diarrhea is not treated using traditional medication and he/she can be left because it is believed that the diarrhea will heal by itself and has no death impact for who sufferers it(9,10).
Traditional medication to treat the diarrhea is by palm of hand root concoction (Elephantopusscaber), betel leaves concoction (Piper betle), and pinang fruit concoction (Areca catechu). The pharmacology effect of betel leaves and pinang fruit has medically been proven as a drug for diarrhea therapy(11).
