I have picked up a bottle of "Cleanse More" pills at a nutrition store. They are used for constipation and is suppose to be a natural laxative, made up of all natural ingredients. It is dairy, wheat, gluten, soy, corn, yeast free. Also no animal products, additives, or preservatives. (which is great for all of us on strict diets! :) I have struggled with chronic constipation my whole life (since i was in diapers). I realize now that my biggest problem was that I didn't know I was celiac. These pills seem to be working for me. My bowel movements seem to be more regular. Just wondering if anyone else is taking these or has taken them? Also, I have been told that you cant become dependent on them because it is all natural. I am wondering if this is true. I have had a dependency on laxatives before because of my problems and I don't want to be on anything that is going to make my bowel lazy without it.

If anyone has any info or experience on these pills, let me know please! :)

Chances are good that the diet will help with the constipation. Can you take these on an as needed basis rather than daily? A couple other things that we can be sensitive to that may cause C are dairy and soy. Soy is the big offender for myself. We can be dependant on anything whether it is natural or not. Opium is natural but quite addictive, as one example.

Drink plenty of water and eat plenty of fruits and veggies. If you haven't been much of a F and V eater before diagnosis increase the amount slowly as too much when you haven't been eating a large amount before can cause a bit of gas and for some even D.

I just looked these up on line and they do say on the bottle that they are not for prolonged use. So I would be sure to use them only when you need them.

Yes maybe I will just keep it for when I absolutly need it! and I just cut out dairy and am noticing a big difference.. less gas and bloating, so hopefully that will help. I haven't tried cutting out soy yet though, I may have to

Thanks for the advice :)

Yes, Raven has offered good advise. As you mentioned, laxatives of any sort are not suggested for extended usage.

Limit dairy, add whole grains like brown or wild rice and fresh vegtables and fruit. Quinoa is a great source of fiber and protein and drink lots of water.
