In Topic: Cures For Constipation?

04 April 2011 - 04:36 PM

Thank you everyone for all of your ideas!

It's going on six days now... no movement. Tomorrow I see my G.I so I will ask about the Magnesium. I'm already taking MiraLax - no results yet.

A doctor told me that the large intestines experience "shock" after a colonoscopy, and that it is not all that uncommon to have no bowel movement for a time afterward. Anyone else experience this??

Hopefully all will be back to normal soon.

Again, thanks very much for your support!

Hi Pondy -- just want to let you know about a book that a friend showed me, called "Great Taste, No Pain!" by_______ Brescia. It talks about combinations of foods that don't digest well and others that do, focusing on keeping your system more alkaline than acidic. I'm trying to eat this way and am getting a bit more health in this area....and am taking digestive enzymes with meals, while taking 6 billion probiotics 2x a day and B50, with an abdominal health formula for 2 rounds to heal the villi in my intestines. I sure hope it helps me, and I hope you find your answers.

In Topic: Fairly New To Gluten Free

Hello and welcome!

Well, you ARE Little Miss Sunshine aren't you? That is the sunniest introduction I have ever read. I'm so glad you found that eating gluten free works for you and you have the support that you need. It is refreshing to read your words. I have a hard time not focusing on the "lost years" so I'm going to take a dash of your spirit from this post and try to be grateful that I too, feel "wonderful" most days. Well, at least way better than I was in the gluten years. Your words and your attitude are inspiring. Thank you

I am encouraged by her words too. Must say I'm still waiting to feel better. I've cut as much gluten from my diet that I am aware of, and still suffer. I just found out that the skin care products and makeup I'm using likely have gluten and have to start all over. I'm researching products and while some claim to be gluten free, they contain tocopherol (vitamin E) and so I'm wondering if I can trust them! I've sent e-mails to several companies to ask the source of the Vit. E.....is there anything else I need to think about that I've likely missed? My vitamins all claim to be okay as well. Sure want to feel better. Have dark puffy circles under my eyes all the time, am always tired, never sleep all night and have had restless legs syndrome for many years. A doctor told me it was the result of my hypothyroidism. It's a lot worse when I have to sit at work all day. I stretch and stretch and take Advil to try to relax them so I can get to sleep. Any support would be very much appreciated! I appreciate having this forum to come to!!
