    I’m still having trouble with constipation after over 4 months on this diet. I drink tons of water, get more fiber than ever before and yet……….

    I tried something new or maybe someone else has posted this before and I haven’t seen it?
    I soak and cook all the flax, brans, buckwheat etc for a very long time before consuming them and it seems it’s helping a little.

    Besides coffee enemas, what’s the best supplement to take that’s safe for the liver and constipation?

    Thanks all and hoping everyone has an energetic, focused, feeling well Christmas!

    Oops brain fart: I was thinking that too much fiber, not cooked enough, draws all the water to them in the intestines, causes more growth of the grains in slow digestion systems and creates a sluggish blockage? The grains soaked and cooked more soak up more water and are still high fiber. Any thoughts?

    There are some specialists that say that fiber actually causes constipation. Others say soluble fiber is fine, too much insoluble fiber can back things up, or vice versa I dont remember. Too little fat consumption probably has the greatest effect. Dysbiosis can have major effects as well as inflammation, and so does stress. Probiotics actually cause constipation in alot of people too.

    Thank you. I’ll change up the fibers again. Fats I’m getting plenty of with coconut and olive oil through the day. What a balancing act.

    I dont know how much of an effect coconut oil would have, mct’s are absorbed pretty quickly. I would think olive oil would tho

    Try the GAPS diet sans fruit, and eat 1/3rd cup of chia seeds at breakfast. Works for me.

    Tude,

    Its simple, if you have a candida problem then you must reduce/eliminate the yeast population to regain intestinal motility.

    Constipation has been one of my worst candida symptoms. You name it, I’ve tried it. Fiber (all types), vegetarian diet, magnesium, tripala, etc, etc, etc. None of that significantly helped.

    The things that actually worked for me
    -Enemas (Home enema kit, never store bought)
    -polyethylene glycol (Miralax) (Stool Softener)

    Both of these are safe to use long term if done correctly.
    As you continue your protocol and get better, the less you will need to depend on these.

    -Dan

    Be careful with the enemas, the body can become dependent on them. As in, wont go without them.
