meribelle,

I'm not sure if you'll ever notice this message, but bladderwrack is practically a miracle treatment for chronic constipation.    

I met a girl who had had an ongoing problem with constipation since she was about 5.  I told her about bladderwrack being an ideal solution for intestinal constipation and she tried it.  

She reported back to me two weeks later that, within three days, the problem was gone.   After almost twenty years, it was gone.

The reason it works is that, for some reason, O's have low thyroid activity, and one of the main problems it causes is chronic constipation.  If you take bladderwrack, it works like nothing else.

Try bladderwrack.

Senna was on the old "avoid" list. It's been upgraded to "Neutral" for everyone except type A nonsecretors, so it's fine for you.

Just ran across this while looking at a salt  site:

Honey + Salt for constipation ?Mix 40g of honey with 8g of salt in 100cc water and drink before you eat breakfast.

Pat, this was also in the link you provided:
"Removing smell in the tennis shoes ?Put small amounts of salt, then you can remove bad smell and humidity from your shoes."

if we are secretors yes, A and B sec & nons can have honey too. AB nonnies - nope.
Then again, it does depend on if you have blood sugar probs too.


Drea, I already posted that in the smelly shoes thread.   Good eye tho.

ok i feel like ive done all i can for this and i dont know what else to do...constipation...ahhh!! if somebody can help me it would be soooo appreciated!

so... i dont know if you would call this constipation but.. the BMs look almost like diarrhea but only a little bit of diarrhea comes out...leaving everything else in and i cant move it worth nothing cause i tried my damndest...ohhh its no use! so this started about 1.5-2 weeks ago and it gets worse every other day it seems. i havnt had a "full" bowel m. in 2 weeks. i finaly just started feeling so sick even from drinking water and i finaly threw my food up last night. when im not constipated i dont get burns in my chest/throat but now it seems im getting them every night.

i thought one more day...just one more day...tomorow whatever you do it will work...but no..

ive tried Lemon Water in the morning
Sea Salt in the morning
Whole Flax soaked in the morning
Ground Flax in the morning
Ghee in the morning
I even drank a Senna Leaf tea last night but that just made my stommach bubble and today...no results
I've been exercising about 30 min. a day
I've been going for walks
(I see someone mentioned bladderwrack...and if its one thing i try before this kills me itll be bladder wrack lol )
I am BTD compliant...
I have tried Prunes... It seems my body evacuated the prunes through violent diarrhea (mostly water..) but left everything else in... is this even possible? someone told me if the prunes could get out then everything before them had to have gone out... what does everybody else think of that? i have no idea any more.

i am going to make an appointment with my doc who i havnt seen in years.

Until then i guess im off to the store to get bladderwrack...if anybody wants to add anything else i should get feel free...im all ears..

allrighty then, good day!

Ben, You might try some significant doses of magnesium, you can even use Epsom salt which is a form of magnesium. The magnesium will help to relax your colon and hopefully allow you to clear it.

What do u think about this MoDon ?
I read it on here: http://www.moondragon.org/obgyn/disorders/constipation.html
Go down to about half page and it gives MANY different ideas and remedies ...

Do NOT consume products containing mineral oil, which can interfere with the
absorption of fat-soluble vitamins. Also avoid taking Epsom salts, milk of
magnesia, and citrate of magnesia, Which draw volumes of fluid into the
intestines and wash out minerals from the body.

Maybe they're talking about long term use of  Epsom salts

Another suggestion that I don't think had been mentionned here ... is Barley juice ...

Another interesting thing that I've read is that  TRIPHALA from Planetary Formulas
aids in the formation of odor-free, firm, and healthy stools  

This other product seems interesting; however, u're really gonna
have to check for the avoids ...
http://herbal-remedies-usa.stores.yahoo.net/collivcleanl.html

Might be interesting to read the whole site on contipation solution ... I really hope this helps ...

this is an excellent article IMHO. †
ben, have you tried the bladderwrack suggested. It was linked to hypothyroidism and it is mentioned in this article as a cause of constipation as well. †

Ben, would like to direct you to another thread......Squatting started by MoDon. In the link http://www.dadamo.com/cgi-bin/Blah/Blah.pl?,v=display,b=alttreat,m=1173108926   he provides, there could be some info that would be of help to you. You sound like you have the same thing that is going on w/ my brother. His dr said he may have this problem:

the ileocecal valve, between the colon and the small intestine, is not being securely sealed. In the conventional sitting position, this valve is unsupported and often leaks during evacuation, contaminating the small intestine.
This is what the dr said his prob might be. She put him on antibiotics (I know, yuk, but.........) and he has only been on them a day or 2, I think, and he says his BMs are better already.

italy,

I found the exact regimen in Dr. D's "Blood Type Encyclopedia" book.  Just look under "constipation", and follow his regimens from there.  The first ingredient in two of the three regimens is bladderwrack.

Newbie. Been lurking here for a bit. I have toyed with the BTD for years. I've had chronic lifetime (60 yrs old) constipation -go 2-3 times a week. I know I don't drink enough. It is a constant struggle to remember to drink - am never thirsty.

About 3 yrs. ago stumbled on a solution that has worked for me. I eat All Bran cereal with whole milk (I didn't have success with 2% that I was using previously) 2 times a day-morning and evening. Usually have a soft movement every day with this regimen.

My dilemma of course is that a B nonnie should not be eating wheat/bran. I've tried eating cooked oat bran cereal but that doesn't work. I'm also concerned about all the garbage added to the cereal and the high amount of additional vitamins added since I'm consuming two servings a day. It is also very filling and I sometimes do not have room to eat more beneficial foods - in addition to putting on weight.

Alas, this is long!! But a week ago i decided to get off the Bran. Have been reading suggestions here and on other forums. Since the whole milk was working for me, I decided to make a smoothie with it and frozen strawberries and 2 tablespoons of ground flaxseed twice a day. In addition, first thing in the morning I tried the warm  water with half a squeezed lemon and a bit of honey. Well, this has produced truely horrible constipation. I went back on the Bran last night........

I've been reading about lots of herbal and other remedies. Everytime I research them they scare me. So many constipation remedies that I read about should not be used on a regular basis. I was excited to hear about bladderwrack. But this information I found does not sound good: "Bladderwrack is generally safe, though there are three potential problems with its consumption: acne, thyroid dysfunction, and heavy-metal contamination. Iodine in any formóincluding from bladderwrack and other seaweedsócan cause or aggravate acne in some people. Excessive iodine ingestion can cause either hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism and should be avoided. Bladderwrack and other seaweeds that grow in heavy-metal-contaminated waters may contain high levels of these toxins (particularly arsenic and lead), leading to nerve damage, kidney damage, or other problems. Only bladderwrack known to have been harvested from clean water or labeled to indicate the absence of heavy metals or other contaminants should be consumed."


Any ideas, comments?
