Best of luck on introducing new foods! 🙂
I am taking FibreSmart. It has no yeast, gluten, dairy, etc. and is an organic product.
I read back in a few posts and some people said that they were taking a different product, but it’s not available near me, so I went for an alternate item. I’ve been “struggling” in that area, so I needed a little help. I’ve just started taking them a week ago and after re-reading the other posts I discovered that Able900 said a fiber supplement would be helpful. I’m also taking Salba, and it is a natural fiber. I read the ingredients on-line and there is none of the candida flag stuff, so I just started taking this. I read back in the old posts and no-one has said anything negative about Salba, so I thought I would try it.
My theory about the constipation is that if you don’t expunge waste then the candida just has a new hang out. There’s no point to going through all the hassle of the cleanse, lemon water, etc. and then leave the waste in your system. My opinion, not based on concrete evidence.
Able900 said: Constipation is not always caused by a lack of dietary fiber as many people believe, but rather by any one of several possible causes; among these are the opioid peptides in wheat and dairy products and the beta-carbolines in high-protein foods such as any type of meat. In addition, many different illnesses cause constipation, unfortunately this includes Candida albicans and the toxins that they release.
Suggestions for constipation during a cleanse or any other time during the treatment are below.
Dr Miller’s Holy Tea http://www.thecandidadie…072_Pina-read-this.aspx
BodyGold® ColonClenz – you can take up to 4 or 5 capsules a day.
Olive Oil – take one teaspoon after each meal and snack followed by a cup of very warm water.
Slippery Elm – This herb is one of the best natural supplements for constipation. If you decide to use slippery elm make sure you drink a lot of water with it … a lot.
Drink a full glass of warm water on an empty stomach every morning.
Trimethylglycine (TMG) helps considerably with digestion as well as Swedish Bitters.
Dehydration causes constipation, so make sure you stay hydrated by drinking water all day long. After a few days of the extra water, you may still be thirsty during the night, so take a glass or bottle to bed with you to sip on during the night.
Unfortunately, the liver is overworked to a huge degree when the human body is suffering from a Candida infestation. The liver puts off bile, which the intestines require in order to stimulate movement, so naturally a poor bile flow can cause constipation. A supplement by the name of “Ox Bile” can usually correct this problem.
