Quoted from fridge
Thinking of ordering some protacols probably deflect and polyflora
To start. Interested to know as to how long it takes them to react!! I have constipation, would I start moving very quickly then!! Would I have to allow for being near a toilet??

While it is hard to guarantee anything, Deflect and Polyflora usually act to balance the system, rather than push aggressively to any extreme.  They start to help you immediately, but it is a balancing type feeling rather than Slam, Bang, you're done...  True healing naturally takes longer than just suppressing symptoms or ??? that many drugs tend to do (at least with me).

Do you have alternating constipation an diarrhea?

Your gut flora needs some care.

Are you eating any wheat or packaged products? What to you eat on a regular basis?

How many arch fingerprints do you have? A's tend to get more constipated as they age.

Grapefruit daily in the morning works well for me.

I started this way of eating 3 months ago and my main issue was occasional bloating and daily constipation. From the beginning I became 98% compliant with the BTD and completely stopped eating dairy, meat and wheat, potatoes and corn. I dropped 12lbs in 2 weeks and instantly my bloating went away and the constipation got better as well. Then I got SWAMI and started to eat some meats and dairy and I'll be doing great for a while and then get constipated again. So it is a work in progress to fine tune my SWAMI diet and figure out which foods do not work for me. It sure gets frustrating at times, it helps me to keep a daily food log so I can look back. I do currently take Deflect and Gastric-D and Polyflora and it seems to help.

One thing I did not notice being mentioned in regards to constipation is Magnesium.

One approach is to gradually increase the amount of magnesium taken each day until stools become too loose (or you fell it is making your bloating worse).




To counteract bloating some women take 400 to 800 mg of Magnesium each day for the second half of their cycle.

I agree with Andrea.....because it worked for me.

Balanced eating with an emphasis on fresh colorful veggies all day!
Exercise....something daily. Remember to stretch your whole body.
Lemon water when arising in AM...fresh cooked oatmeal 3 times a week, chewy prunes or fresh plums, variety of R4YT teas, grapefruit juice, and daily compliant nuts and seeds!

Good luck!

fridge,
Does your bloating ever go down?  Or is it permanent?

Exercise helps, for sure.

Sometimes I like to lay down and listen to music. I go into a bit of a trance. It is weird. I think it helps a little but nothing like lemon juice or exercising.

Also enough protein is important. I think that is a major flaw in being Type A... lack of protein from weak digestion leaves you with issues that eventually lead to extremely low stomach acid etc. I have been having some soy protein powder that comes with some enzymes in it lately. Turmeric always makes things better for me too.
