Mother, I've been gluten free for over a year. I avoid milk, but do mozzerella and I try really hard to be corn free, but it's hard.

Since I've been pretty compliant, bloating is *very* rare. Like once a month rare. But a few months back, I tried a gluten free fiber supplement. OH MY GAWD. I felt like I was going to DIE, I was so bloated.

I haven't noticed a problem with larch or chicory, but I'm an Explorer. Don't know if that means I can do a little more carbs than you?

Jayneeo- nope, I'm not small, I'm tall but I am thin.

misspudding- i get the exact same thing fron psyllium or any of the fiberall type supps. I can't even look at them. I have definately found that avoiding (or maybe very small amounts here and there) nuts, legumes and many veg proteins are my best option. If I stick with protein, fat and non starchy veg I have no problems what-so-ever. My daughter was chroniaclly constipated all her 21 years (along w/bloating and pain). now she's gone to almost no fiber and 'going' everyday. fiber seems to STOP her digestion. She stuggles even with vegetables so for now has switched to rice products. She probably has candida so that is not going to work but is having surgery for endometriosis as I type. We'll see how that comes out.
MY system seems to like the bsic all natural 'hunter food pack'. It doesn't like meds or even alot of supps, just your standard vitamins-C,D,Multi, turmeric, cal and mag.
Thanks for your replies

Just want to backtrack on the matter of psyllium..I notice in the links that there is an issue with some Os, but I wonder if there is a definitive statement on the use of psyllium for other types? Or is it just a matter of trial and error? On the other hand, are other foods better for the purpose of dealing with constipation/flatulence? I am taking polyflora A.

The operative quote is at the very bottom:

Polyflora Blood Type Specific Probiotics also blend 'prebiotics' (foods which provide special growth factors for probiotic bacteria) that are right for each type. .

Is it okay to take Polyflora O with a little sip of water? I've also noticed the very uncomfortable bloating effect

Hi Paul, reply 12 above did not really address my concerns. Perhaps I should start a separate thread on psyllium alone, what do you think?

I have found that polyflora works best with a glass of water and a live cell at the same time.

Sounds like you might have a candida overgrowth and the bene bacteria could be killing the bad bacteria, this can cause bloating, stomach upset and constipation or diarrhea. I started out taking the polyflora 1 capsule a day for a week and added 1 more capsule the next week. It took me a month to work up to the recommended dose. Also as someone stated earlier they need to be taken away from food.

I have had incredible results with Polyflora O. In fact, I cannot tolerate ANY probiotics except Polyflora!  Since I started taking it, my digestive issues are virtually gone. It's been about a week of taking these three times a day and I can now tolerate more of the foods that used to tear up my stomach. My gas and bloating are 1/2 what they used to be. I am much more regular as well!  Thank you Dr. D for all your hard work!

Welcome, FancyMom, and thanks for sharing your experience with PolyFlora O!


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.
