Great Northern Beans are really high in fiber. I remember someone saying that they ate them and noticed a difference in their IBS.

Quoted from silverseale


I have an unresolved case of IBS-D, so I *need* a little cement in my system. I have been really struggling the past several days, thought I could chow down on fresh fruit now that it's in season... but sadly, no. I usually have to "buffer" my fruit well with some brown rice or other carb. Dried fruits also work better for me than fresh.

On a good day, though, I'll have "normal" stools once or twice a day.


Well, as it turns out, there is a stomach bug going around my office! Thanks goodness the BTD isn't aggravating my IBS.

Update, Now we know my bowel was doing the swirl Iliterally on my left side and was Scarred in on my Vaginal canal and bladder therefore irritating it horribly.

I am still regular 1-3 times a day fort he most part, but occasionally I do get something amiss in the right side (and no it is not the appendix). The Doctor showed me how to palpate my large intestine all the way around I can tell when I am stopped up. I use a Rectal suppositiry or enema to get things moving. I am doing much better but realize I must keep a low to yeast free diet. To keep my system on track for healing.

The reasoning for this poll I think in my understanding( what smidgen it is), The bowel being clean is of the utmost importance for your health and well being. Otherwise you cannot clear out the wastes in your body.

once every morning, and generally a few hours after every meal. Food goes in, food comes out; that's pretty much the pattern. I don't ever recall being anything but that.

Before the BTD, I wake up in the morning with urgency to go.  Then I'd go again after breakfast.

Now, I have no urgency, and I can even wait until the afternoon to go.


My SWAMI diet is a blend of BTD and GTD Explorer, but I'm not totally compliant.  Also I try to choose foods that have a Low Glycemic index.  DW and DD are A+, probably also Explorer.

Quoted from mikeo

There is an African expression..."Where people have large stools, thay have small hospitals"



Love that, Mikeo! That sure summarizes the work of Dr Denis Burkitt on stool patterns and disease. I don't believe he factored in blood types though.

Do you all remember the film: "The Last Emperor" by Bertolucci? I can recall the scene where the young emperor's doctors were running behind him at age 3 or so, examining his stools with eyes, nose and what have you! Very important aspect in Chinese medecine.

In France, when we greet someone we say: "Comment allez vous?"(How do you do?) Well that actually is said to come from an expression that dates back to the Renaissance (during the time when America was discovered) and that had an ending to it: ..." la selle". Meaning: How do you do in the toilet? Love that too!!


Here's how I do!

Before the BTD it was a real struggle. As a child I remember getting enemas because it was so bad. On the BTD it got better but it was still a preoccupation. I always had to make sure I took flaxseeds, or Triphala or probiotics or digestive enzymes...you name it. And even then I didn't get what I get now.

Now on the GTD with the 3 GenoType supplements (Activator, Catalyst, Synergist) and Intrinsa and Polyflora O (I want to restore my gut integrity) its like dropping a letter in the mailbox, 2-3 times a day!!!!

Never in my life  have I had this happen to me! And not only frequency but also volume. I get the signal, go and have a real good dump!
The morning one is larger than the others.

Wheat and milk products almost instantly constipate me. Too many compliant grains do the same.


"Vive" the GTD and all that goes with it. Supplements, what the white lines on fingerprints mean etc...

Just follow the book... and well you know the rest.

Wow!  Karen's post is motivating me to start the Genotype Diet. I'd love to go three times/day.  Some people dream about vacations, handbags, and lost loves. Not this AB. I only dream and pray for three good poops/day!
I've been on the BTD for two years and go to the bathroom 1/day.  This is a miracle for me! The BTD, polyflora, and exacta have all helped me. As a kid and all through my 20's I only went once every three to five days!  All the doctor's my mom took me to said that it was normal. I never knew any different so I thought it was normal, too. After, starting the BTD in 2007, I couldn't believe I started to go everyday.  This alone made me adhere to the diet.  I didn't even care about losing weight!  I was just happy going to the bathroom everyday. I'm thinking about buying Larch Ara-6 from NAP.

Hi Sharon,

I am happy my post is inspiring to you.

Just want to add that not only do I go regularly and abundantly but I really have the feeling that my bowels end up as clean as a whistle.

What I mean by that is that some people can have a BM a day and still be constipated. So it is not enough to just have BMs but to actually have the feeling that you are cleansing yourself of all those toxic wastes.

The colon can be so impacted with waste that there is only a little passage left. Stuff still goes through but not really in a cleansing way, actually ridding the bowels.

So, folks, I am sure many of you out there are in this case, thinking you function well, when actually its not that great.

Anybody?

This IS an important issue. Its like sex and money. We don't dare talk about it!

Its not enough to eat the right foods. You need to absorb them very well and eliminate the waste very well. Your health will soar. Mine is.

I know sometimes I have to take second look.. Did that come out of me??

I know when my husband was sick with  bowel disease he always wondered why no one ever talked about what a healthy bowel movement was in his family. He had no idea, until I called him into the bathroom to take a look .

Sequel (but not about me this time)

When my children were little I didn't check their pooh, because I didn't know better.

Now I have 2 grandsons, 4 and 6, and when I go see them I make it a point to check at least once while I am there and report back to my daughter.

One is BT A and goes with clockwork regularity. The other is BT O and is already struggling although my daughter is careful about their food and I would say 70% compliant. Their sandwiches are made with ezekiel bread etc...But at school he gets the inevitable wheat junk at birthdays and snacks.

This summer I will be with them for about 4 weeks and you can be sure I will keep an eye (and a nose) on you know what... and report back. Because that's another thing BMs should have almost no smell.

I am very curious about this topic. It seems that the friends and family in my life who are depressed or anxious also suffer from some form of constipation or bowel issues. I always tell them about how I healed my own mental issues (depression) through BTD. One of my friend's has started the diet with great results.  She is a total fan now and has also gone off her psychotropic medications. She also quit smoking by following Dr.D's suggestion about eating the dark meat of the turkey.  
I will keep you all updated once I start the Genotype Diet.  Please let me know if you have any other useful information about how to have good movements. No one teaches you this stuff in school! I stay very compliant to BTD and looking forward to starting  the Genotype Diet.  Just ordered the Genotype testing kit.  I think I'm either a Nomad or Explorer but need to confirm with some more measurements and prop taster.

One more thing that helped me go better... drinking water only 1/2 hour before meals and 2 hours after meals.  I don't stick to this perfectly but just keeping water away from meals has also helped me to go to the bathroom in a bigger and better way for lack of a better expression !  I'm thankful to Dr.D for giving me this idea...I think I read it on his website a few months ago.

If I body brush and do my abdomen in an  "n"  shape defining my large intestines I find that I do move my bowels an additional time during the day.

My friend read LRFYT and saw on page 294 that a woman quit smoking by increasing tryptophan rich dark meat turkey.  I also quit smoking and drinking through this natural amino acid. Whenever I need comfort food I eat dark meat turkey.
