Diarrheal disease remains a public health problem in developing countries such as Indonesia, because morbidity and mortality are still high. Incident Rate (IR) of diarrhea at Sub Directorate, Ministry of Health in 2010 were 411/1000 population. There are a lot of herbs that have been used as antidiarrheal in Lampung, wherein 21 herbs are antidiarrheal, 33 herbs pose antibacterial activities and 29 herbs interfere colon motility. Observational study with the cross sectional method was applied in this research. Eighty eight 6-12 years old patient were divided into two groups. Group 1 consist of forty four 6-12 years old patients with mild non-specific acute diarrhea who were given a traditional antidiarrheal with zinc tablet and Oral Rehydration Salts (ORS). Group 2 was the control subjects which consist of forty four 6-12 years old patients with mild non-specific diarrhea who were given a zinc tablet and ORS. Frequency of diarrhea and side effects of traditional herbs were observed. The study was conducted in 4 centers of traditional therapist in Bandar Lampung from October 1, 2013 to February 8, 2014. On the first day of treatment, frequency of diarrhea was reduced significantly by 1-3 times per day for the group I given traditional anti diarrheal (95.5 %) and on the fourth day, all subjects (44 subjects) were cured. In the control group, diarrheal frequency was decreased as much as the traditional herb group, but the cases got this relief were only about 72.2 % of subjects. On the fourth day, not all subjects (90.9 %) in the control groups were cured. Lampung traditional medicinal herbs with zinc tablet and ORS reduce diarrheal frequency among children suffered non -specific diarrhea (p < 0.05). Therefore, the Lampung traditional medicinal herb in combination with zinc tablet and ORS clinically and statistically contributed to decreasing diarrheal frequency with R2 ≤ 0.2.
