I'm wondering since Dr. D started this poll in 2006, why?

What would be the ideal.....just so we all have a sense of knowing if we're ultimately achieving that goal.

I said once per day and see I'm in the minority.  My husband, also an A says 3 x  per day.  I'm
a secretor, he's a nonnie.

I have A friends who are always constipated and the same with one of my two A sisters.  My type
A niece is also constipated.....  Just would love to know what is considered normal for an A.  Rather the healthiest for an A.

Not sure about others but for me a very consistent daily routine will allow for consistency in this part of my personal physiology. My daily routine and what I eat from day to day plays a big role for me personally. I said daily but it could just have easily been 4-6 times per week.

Does 3 times a day, but all in the morning within 1 1/2 hour time span count as "daily" or "more than once a day"?

That's a good question....In that 90 minute time frame of having 3 movements, are you stopping to eat any food?  Or just going back to the bathroom?  My husband sort of does this.  Food goes
through his digestive system rather rapidly.

I think you'd be accurate in saying more than once per day....if food caused the second, third
movement.  If it didn't, then it's part of the first evacuation.

Maybe this is a far fetched deduction on my part....but this is how it appears to me.

Chloe,

No - don't eat until I'm done "pooping".  I drink. Actually, I brew Teeccino with just a little decaf coffee in it. Sometimes hot tea will also get things moving for me but the Teeccino coffee-taste seems to work best.  

I read someplace that if you want to know how long it takes food to completely go through your digestive tract, "eat some beets and pay attention".  Based on that: When I'm eating properly my digestive system time is around 18 hours average.  

I guess that as long as I have a regular routine it's fine.  If I can't "go" in the morning I feel bloated and miserable all day long!  

When my 85 year old father used to live with us we were disgusted at the way he talked about his bowel movements constantly.........so I shall stop!

Chloe was talking about constipation un A's. It's an interesting topic. Maybe A's have tendency to constipation if they aren't compliant?

Thanks Lola, sometimes I forget I'm different  

I'm in a cycle, when my bowel are damaged I believe and I'm compliant.

When my bowels work, I give up gradually BTD diet and when I suffer damage I start again

1-3 is normal for me.  But lately (6th day now) I've been plagued with diarrhea which, for me, is very unusual.  I had started on Dr. D's supplements 12 days prior (having switched from Standar Process) and my bm's actually improved.

I haven't stopped taking the ARA6 2x daily along with the suggested dosage for the Teacher 3-pack.  I've even (since the diarrhea started, added Dr. D's multivitamin and mineral, each 2x per day to compensate with what I'm probably missing due to my food not being digested properly.

It all started after I had eaten some organic bagged baby romaine lettuse in a salad.  That was last Wednesday.  Thursday since I've had it.  Didn't throw out the lettuce until after I had consumed 3 salads (Wed., Thurs, & Fri.)!  Anyways, it still hasn't gone away.  I kept eating salads daily until today thinking that the raw vegetables may be irritating my condition.  Hope staying away from raw veggies for a spell will work cause I'm out of ideas.

Anybody have any thoughts or suggestions?  

By the way, I'm not going back to Standard Process.  My husband wants me to take one of their products our Dr. recommended for him.  So far I've avoided that.

do you remotely suspect bacterial infection....something that might have come from that
lettuce?

You could always eat brown rice or white rice which for me is very binding...although from your
description, my gut works differently from yours.  Never ever get diarrhea unless I overdo magnesium citrate. If anything, I need to work on bowels getting looser, to maybe poop
when I feel bloated rather than have to wait till the next morning before I naturally feel the
urge....lots of raw veggies help me get my bowels regular....but, in your case might have an
extremely different reaction.  My husband a Warrior nonnie can easily move his bowels 3x a day.
Me, never. Oh, and DH takes ARA 2x a day....he thinks that's why he's being cleaned out so much.
Could your dose be too high?  How long are you using this entire protocol?

Personally, I find my entire gut gets completely upset from the Teacher's supplements. Eyes burn,
skin itches, gastric reflux from the HCL in the activator. Flax oil I take off a spoon....and the good
bacteria from Polyflora A seems to be all the supplemental pbx that I need.  The pbx in the activator feels all wrong.  I think  this is where my gut flora is a little bit more A-like and less
Teacher-like.  And maybe I'm a bit Explorer like in this respect.  The wrong pbx and I feel awful.

Also, when your gut is upset, it's good to back off all supplements for a short while....get yourself feeling balanced......add back in 1/2 doses, one formula at a time....Go very slowly.  Sometimes less is more.

More than one time a day and less than one time a day are very rare. When it happens, the cause is easily identifiable! (Major change in eating and sleeping timing or some bacterial or fungus infection).

If I add pineapple to my diet, more then once a day. If not, then once a day.

And it is clockwork. I try to do it first thing in the morning (thanks to the lemon water). But if my schedule goes off (on the weekends), it ends up skewing to the new time.

When I add pineapple, I found that I was going once in the morning, and again after work.
