The JAMU MAN Cured My Diarrhea for $.35 | Traditional Herbal Medicine Stall in Jakarta Indonesia!
I went to an Indonesian traditional medicine stall in Jakarta. They call this Jamu. I really wanted to try, and so I asked for the ‘strong man medicine’. The seller began by adding a mystery powder into the glass, followed by herbs, honey, ginger, and a raw duck or chicken egg from a local farm. He stirred it up and I downed it.
Turns out I couldnt fall asleep until the next day around lunch time. I just kept tossing and turning in my hotel room. Locals told me it is actually like an Indonesian viagra. I didnt feel any effects like they thought. I just couldn’t sleep. No idea what that really was…
When I woke up in the late afternoon, I had diarrhea. I was pooping everything out, until it was just water. I don’t really know how I got this diarrhea, since I drank ginger drink, ate padang food with cencol, drank jamu herbal drinks from at least 2 other shops, and even a drank a coffee off of a bicycle seller (aka Starbike).
I left my hotel and went straight to find some. coconuts to hydrate with the natural electrolytes. I downed 2 big coconuts for 17,000rp each. Then I went to the pharmacy. The staff recommended Imodium pills. I bought them… but I had other plans.
I went back to the jamu stall and told him my diarrhea issue. He set me up on a mystery powder that cured me in about 5 hours. The cost? 5,000rp or $.35 cents. The taste? Extremely weird and minty. But it worked!
