1. Eat dried fruits, like apricots & prunes
2. Lots of water - at least 1/2 your body weight in ounces - more if you're really active
3. Drink herbal tea that have senna, but be careful it can cause some cramping if you overdo
4. Take some slippery elm - it coats the gi tract & is soothing, as well.
Hope this helps...I feel your pain. :-)
Within that 1st year, learned my 4 children & hubby were reacting to gluten as well.
I love to cook nutrient dense foods directly from the people who produce it.
Avid researcher & will spend hours reading books, research papers, scouring the internet, whatever it takes to answer my many questions about gluten intolerance & celiac disease.
Make Your Day Great!

Okay. So two weeks ago I ate a TINY bite of chocolate cake because, initially I never thought I had Celiac Disease, just a slight gluten intolerance, so I went gluten free (i've been gluten-free for about four months now and ive felt GREAT, no adhd meds anymore or anxiety or headaches or stomachaches). I didn't think the cake would hurt me because people without Celiac can usually eat a tiny bit of gluten (when on a gluten-free diet)and be fine. Well....I think I must have Celiac. Because my main symptoms before were serious constipation, ADHD, acid indigestion, anxiety and migraines, and I just generally felt like crap all the time. I ate that gluten and the very next day I got a really bad headache, terrible heart burn, and became so incredibly constipated its ridiculous--stool softeners and eating extensive fruits and vegetable wont help like it used to. This is like no other constipation I've ever had. And its been two weeks, and I've only gone a couple times. Its becoming dangerous. PLEASE someone tell me any ideas they have about how to recover from such awful constipation. Herbs? meds? special diet??? ANYTHING?! Thank you so much!
I'm sorry I don't have any tips add but I hope you feel a lot better soon. Getting glutened sucks, whether it's by accident or through something like this. But I would encourage you to try and stay strictly gluten free from now on. Whether or not you have officially diagnosed celiac doesn't make much difference unfortunately to how our bodies react to it. There are people with severly damaged vili who don't have any noticable symptoms... others like me who test negative but feel amazingly better gluten free and who feel sick now at the tiniest crumb. So don't let a lack of a diagnosis downplay how much better you feel gluten free. And I really hope you feel well again soon.

I like it because it's a natural laxative. None of the chemical laxative stuff works for me.
I hope you feel better soon!
