My mom takes 1 tsp. of nutmeg 3 times a day to help control diarrhea. Are there any possible side effects?

The use of nutmeg is an old folk remedy originating in the middle ages in Europe.  Centuries of anecdotal observation and more recent experience in carcinoid patients under medical care on nutmeg for at least several years indicates no apparent side effects from the dose she is taking.
