Not fast acting, but when I was pregnant my OB had me on prunes/prune juice to help with my severe constipation naturally. I think the prune juice is probably a bit faster acting, but the prunes have a great amount of dietary fiber. GL!

I can tell you what had worked for me: magnesium supplements - magnesium oxide 400mg once a day, or cut the pill in half and take it twice a day. Then water, drink 1 bottle of plain water at once, or in 15 minutes wice per day, and take probiotics with bifidum - Alive Or. Nature Bounty Chewable probiotics Acidophilus with bifidum- two wafers 2-3 times a day. I have been using them that way when I needed.

To avoid constipation try to cut, or lower chicken meat, rice, bananas and carrot intake because when you have diarrhea, they are the first aid to stop it.
I hope that you feel better soon.

Ground flaxseed in a 16 oz. glass of water 2X a day --and more water throughout the day can help.

Ooh these are some good suggestions. It happens whenever I have the slightest amount of dairy. I had to grab some milk to coat my stomach before taking some medication, and so I know what's coming...😟

Aha! well, hon, this may be the giant clue!

If dairy is causing C, you may need to give it up.

Try So delicious coconut milk or almond milk and see if the C stops.

Oh, I have given it up, but every now and then in a moment of desperation (eg I'm having a low blood sugar in the mall and the only thing available is my daughter's cheese that I've packed for her snack; or yesterday when I took an ocycodone bc I had my wisdom tooth pulled, and it started attacking my stomach almost immediately. Had to grab a milk at the store before going home...). But the result is always the same and I need to find something fast acting to help..!

Wondering which of the above suggestions will work the fastest!

prunes generally will imo. Eat four of them and give it a few hours and you'll be going rofl.

Back when i had C constently, prunes were the only thing that got me going.

IrishHeart is right: ground flaxseeds in either water or juice will work miracles.

Hubs (who would be so embarrassed for me for saying this, so let's not tell him :lol: ) had big C for weeks---and I had to talk him into trying it and now, he is so happy. :)

I also make granola bars for us with ground flaxseed in them and they keep things "moving" right along.

I will have hubby stop by the health food store and pick some flaxseed up. I thinky one ofthe many foods i am supposed to avoid is prunes, so rather than go searching to find the list that has that on I will just opt for the flaxseed route.

Any concerns with brands that might have gluten contamination? I gave up on eating sunflower seeds bc I was reacting to them (this was in my ultra sensitive phase...no idea if it was gluten contamination - I assumed it was - or a problem with the seeds themselves...I didn't bother to find out at the time as I had too many other dietary issues going on!

I buy mine at a health food store, and I haven't experienced any problems of gluten contamination. Also, I use a coffee grinder to grind the seeds before mixing them in with the juice. Don't bother buying the pre-ground kind, because they lost their nutritional value 15 minutes after being ground.

I have the same problem. What ended up working for me was an increase of fiber, and a squatty potty.
