I eat cow yoghurt, but not very often...the only ingredients are milk and live cultures. Soy yogurt has too many avoids in it; at least the stuff I can find.


Funny you said cow yogurt because when I talk about regular milk, I say cow milk and my daughter just has a cow!! No pun intended.   She says "you can just call it milk Mom" and I tell her it's cow milk, so that's what I call it.  
Yes, the soy yogurt I've found has avoids. Just noticed that today. I made some oatmeal, threw in a little ghee, almond butter and a little strawberry/banana soy yougurt. Yummy!!!!!!!! Looked at the ing. later........... avoids.  GRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!

I think most of us need to make our own yogurt, whether it is cow, goat or soy milk.

It was just a spur of the moment thing. I was at work and needed something to put in it to "liven" it up. The a. butter and yogurt were just sitting there waiting to be used. I really like that together. Gives it a little extra protein and fat as well.

I am experiencing constipation at the moment. Last week a new ice cream shop opened and they serve custard ice cream. I don't eat it very often but thought I would just have a little treat. I took my lactated pills for my lactose and also took my acidophosis pills to help with the digestion part. Well a week later sores in my mouth and stomach aching with pain. It actually hurts in my back. If I bend or reach for something - severe back pain from the constipation.

I will just have to stay away from the summer ice cream shops. I suffer for at least a week. MAN I love banana splits. Oh well, veggie burgers and icies for me.

Cow dairy (with the exception of yogurt) constipates me almost every time I eat it.  

Try Soy Cream made my Double Rainbow...the only avoids are Locust Bean Gum and Guar Gum...but I console myself that these are the second to last ingredients.

I gotcha. Normally if I eat any kind of ice cream it is soy by SOY Dream?? That's the only thing that's available in my area. We live in a resort area with an ice cream shop on every corner. So now that I have experienced by sores, constipation, bloated stomach, and water retention. I am ready to enter the spring/summer months with fruit smoothies vs ice cream.

I'm the same way with potatoes. For years I kept trying to eat them, not that often, but each time I did, it was baaaad: constipation and joint swelling. So now I remind myself (and anyone else who will listen) that I cannot eat potatoes! (*sniff sniff*)

About Soy Dream by Turtle Foods...it also has avoids, namely carageenan, but for me, that is way less bad than cow dairy. I'm doing my best to stay away from added sweeteners for a while, so no (more) non-dairy desserts for me!

Good luck. Yeah, cow milk in any shape or form is my worse enemy. My entire body dislikes it(exept my taste buds). But I am also finding if I don't eat fiber, fiber, fiber all day. Plan on suffering the conseqences. In fact I am suffering right now from the wonderful tasting custard I ate last week. This is not a short term episode. Takes a full week to work thru this body with suffering all the way.

I use to explain my symptoms as swallowing a golf ball. That is what it feels like with and cow milk. I basically cannot digest it so it is a work in progress  from beginning to end.

Magnesium. And calcium, if you don't get enough that you can digest properly.   If you need calcium and magnesium (many women do--that osteoporosis thing), you may find that your bones were not the only ones in need!  The colon needs the right balance to work properly.   If any wheat gets in by mistake, or even a bit too much "good" grain,  forget harmony the next day.  Arabinogalactin is great, I buy it by the pound and it is worth every penny.  All the other advice is good too, I am just trying to add.  Also, if you have candida (even if you don't know it), it may be contributing to your condition.

Thank you, but I don't have one handy now.  I have purchased it in the past, however.  I baked a cake for hubby today and it is calling me, but after reading all these posts about wheat, I am able to stay away from it.  The last time I ate cake, I had the most awful stopped up nose almost immediately.  And I don't need anything to stop up my other end!  I never thought of wheat as a constipating food.  I am learning so much.

If any of you ice cream lovers have a juicer, I have just discovered a fantastic sorbet.  You put in the blank screen (the one that is used for making nut butters), and run a compliant frozen fruit through the juicer.  It comes out looking like frozen custard, but with no sweeteners and no chemicals.

I have tasted frozen mango, frozen banana, frozen blueberries, and I have heard that frozen cherries are the best.

Yes, and you'll know within 5-15 minutes if you're having a problem with it. You'll see the legs/trendils, whatever you want to "name" them ,      hanging down in the water. The more legs, the more candida.

I have read this entire thread now and thank you all for your suggestions.  I didn't have constipation prior to BTD and it has hit the past couple of months.  I make a smoothie every morning and I put in pineapple juice and a banana and now I read that bananas are constipating...OH MY !!  Good to learn that.

I am going to buy rice bran and see if I can get fluffies too !

I just munched down a tablespoon of hemp hearts which I don't eat very often and I'm drinking warm water.  I had lemon in water first thing this morning.

Thank you everyone for all of your input to this marvelous thread.  I am going to try to adjust my diet to include and exclude and see what results I get.
