I thought it was the milk too until I realized I did fine with the smaller one a few weeks earlier. Then I read that it could be hidden in the emulsifiers. I should probably send them an email.

Thank you, I really don't mean to sound melodramatic or complain, I've just had a slew of not so great luck. I know I should be thinking about all of the people who have had it so much worse... Thank you for all of the advice and support everyone. It helps a lot. :)

You are not melodramatic, honey, you feel yucky and this is the place where you can b**ch and no one will think you a drama queen.

She. :) That is actually a snapshot out of a video I took of her last year at the dog park. She was getting her neck scratched — she is such an itchy dog: she can't tolerate grains either. :-) The envy of all of us who would like naturally white teeth!

Those are some pearly white chompers!! :lol: good for her!

My cat Bella doesn't eat any grains eaither. Her coat is luxurious--- since she adopted us :lol: and went gluten-free, too. She was a mess when we found her and now, she is GORGEOUS.

You know, if I thought my hair would grow back in that thick, I would eat her kitty cat canned salmon, too. :)

Yes, kiddo, life is a gluten-filled landmine...but being wise about CC is your Kevlar vest. :)

You're going to be okay. Hang in there and get your list of questions ready for the doctor. Keep us posted.

Hiya, constipation is the worst! Two things that definitely help me:

1. Epsom salt(magnesium)baths regularly
2. Castor Oil applied to belly at night. Use pads/a compress to keep the oil on the skin overnight.
3. Lemon juice freshly squeezed in warm water every morning.

Hope this helps.

Some people have chronic C it never gets better....I drink over a 1/2 gallon of pure water daily, take probiotics & digestive enzymes, eat a clean healthy diet with a large amount of fruits & veggies & also raw juices.... I have tried everything in the book but still have the problem. Being in the hospital twice for long periods of time I have seen many doctors. The bottom line is some people not just me have this problem..
Miralax is better than something like X-Lax or a stronger type thing...like ducolax.... Mineral oil is also better for your system than others. the main thing is not to become dependent on a laxative...Miralax & mineral oil do not ........I have learned now to take the miralax every other day & it works for me... But when I couldn't go in the hospital they were giving me it four to six times a day plus stronger drugs..I called it a poop cocktail........
once you find . your routine it all works out in the end! sorry for the pun....
I also have tried every home remedy that has ever been on the internet.net.. what works for some , not so much for others....

I take solid gold digestive enzyme & alternate probiotics monthly....Dr. Ohirra's, pearls, sustenex & others...




I have been gluten-free just over 2 years and still suffer from chronic C. It is better...some. Like you I drink 3/4 gallon of water a day, eat lots of fiber, the whole healthy thing. Take probiotics, suplements, molasses (to heal the gut), aloe and then I added a herbal laxative tea, Smooth Move (hate that name!!). Went over it with my dr and she said it was quite safe. I've been on that for almost a year and that is the only thing that keeps things moving. Now I take it every other night and that seems to work. Miralax didn't do much of anything for me. It's all in what works for you. I've seen three different dr and all said some people are just born constiapted. <_<

Hello ninja,
I haven"t visited your thread in a while, looks like you"ve made great progress. I see you like chocolate but have gone dairy free. Have you found the enjoy life brand chocolate? It"s dairy, nut, soy, and gluten free. Made in a decitated nut and gluten free facility. It"s soooooooooo good !!! It"s a little hard to find, i have to drive a hour to get mine so i really stock up when i go. The trip home is very enjoyable.
