    HI, I have been on stage one for day 8 and have had constipation the last three days. I am taking the detox supplements (psyllium husk powder and betonite clay) recommended and plenty of water. However, I can feel fullness and cramping in my colon ( I have had this before ). I know it is not good to be constipated when possibly having leaky gut syndrome. If I take milk of magnesium for relief will that counteract any progress I have made. Also, any thoughts on why I am constipated when I am suppose to be cleansing the colon? Thanks!

    We do not recommend using the clay and psyllium husks on the forum because the psyllium husks can cause internal bleeding, especially if you have leaky gut.

    The main side effect to using psyllium husks is constipation, so if you were to stop using them, things would only improve as far as constipation.

    I had to stop using the psyllium husk because it was like a rock in my system. Psyllium husk also dries out the colon, so you’d have to drink an exorbitant amount of water to flush it. I’d switch to another fiber. I use FibreSmart capsules and they are working out alright. I do use the maximum amount per day. I have also used Senna tea, but I would use great caution in this particular item as it can make the bowels ‘lazy’.

    Thank you so much! I will stop the husk powder, it tasted awful anyways. I have a huge burning feeling just to the upper right of my belly button and it comes and goes, but it’s really inflamed right now. I will try the lemon and water detox:-)
