Beans constipate me. I rarely eat them anymore. I am so tired of being constipated. I am vegan, gluten free and nightshade vegetable free. Beans sit in me like a rock. I'm guessing that my body likes to turn food into hard paste whenever possible. I think that the fluids are taken out of my body early during digestion making the beans not want to move along.

How long did it take for you to see a reduction in the edema? I self diagnosed myself with celiac disease 3 months ago. I believe that my legs are swollen. I'm so interested in finding out how long I might have to wait to see if that symptom will go away or not. Some of my other symptoms are greatly improving the longer I go without gluten. I am vegan as well so I hope that will help with my healing.
