Quoted from ABJoe
The better your gut functions, the less supplementation you will need, as you will meet more of your needs from the foods you eat.
Quoted from EnobattarAB and Goldie, I think I need calcium in particular because the last time I was muscle tested (mid-diarrhea) my body indicated the need for four of the S.P. Calcium Lactate. But, perhaps that need was due to losing nutrients due to the diarrhea.?
Quoted from C_Sharp
Calcium tends to be constipating. Take magnesium to loosen stools and calcium to firm them up.
Present cramping may indicate that calcium is not properly balanced with magnesium and potassium.
Quoted from Andrea AWsecOpen the capsules in to a container and take a dash a day, you can increase it over time and see how it goes.
Just mix it in water.
The Fluid Membrosia, which is the fluid part of the Membrosia Combo, consists of 5 kinds of different oils, mixed for promoting cellular health - flexibility and permeability of the cell walls, particularly the brain cells. Far beyond treating constipation.Quoted from GoldieIt is sold with some liquid (fish oil plus- I dislike) for constipation...or for detoxing... (.. man I would rather just use the extra light olive oil)
Quoted from Enobattar
PLEASE let me thank Victoria for her advise and Lola for backing up her post to me when I was probably half way through this ordeal! IF I HAD LISTENED (pardon the capitals but I simply have to emphasize this point), my problem would have ended almost immediately!
I was told by these well experienced people to stop ALL supplements for a couple of days and begin taking them one at a time. (I think C-Sharp has also made this point to us on different subjects.). In my "I think I know best what is best for me" frame of mind, I barreled on ahead on "my plan". Which worked! But at a much greater cost!!!
Much to my surprise it turned out to be the Phytocal! Bums me out but it is what it is for right now. After weeks of experimenting I have found that I can handle 1 every other day, taking Calcium Lactate from Standard Process every other day.
Anybody have an opinion to share as to whether maybe I shouldn't take it at all because within one full day my bowels begin to loosen? I would like to take it as much as my body will allow. Has anyone had a similar reaction to it? It is rated by my SWAMI as a three star. Deflect is five stars. Each member of Teacher 3-pack is rated 6 stars.
