      ProBiotics with the two or 5 strains needed to rebuild gut? They say RLL LASER 660 AND 850 Nm ON LOWER STOMACH helps Gut.

      I have been diagnosed with SIBO (twice - once in 2017 and once again this year). I’m working with DietvsDisease to address it but so far the antimicrobials did not seem to work - waiting to try the reintroduction phase of the Low FODMAP diet to see exactly what triggers it. That said, I started (again) using Acacia fiber, miralax and dulcalax stool softener - after stopping it to so the antimicrobials and low FODMAP diet- and it seems to be helping a lot. Wish I could use more “natural” treatments but Miralax is the only thing I can rely on…

      I use VSL #3 packets and celery juice to keep me regular. Works like a charm most of the time. Miralax helps too, but for a while I was on Linzess because the Miralax wasn’t enough. If you workout, a hard run on the treadmill helps me too.

      Talk to your doctor about linzess I had similar issues until 2020 when my Dr prescribed it. Then my body decided last summer to do the opposite of what the medication is for

      If you're anything like me you forget miralax or anything that would daily help so I'm not good on healthy advice but I've noticed when I lay on my stomach with my butt up in the air for awhile it can stimulate the ability to go. No idea if it's just me. Also a squatty potty works miracles for me (I didn't buy one, I just made my own). Basically when we're in a squatting position it's an easier and more natural way to poop for our bodies. Good luck ❤️

      I find miralax the most helpful! But it takes a few days to work!

      I’ve been trying to figure this out for over a decade. What typically works for me is: Floradix liquid magnesium once a day, eliminating all animal dairy from my diet, pelvic floor exercises (to help with motility), and chewing my food at least 40x before swallowing. The problem? Whenever I travel (especially air travel) or eat something new, it tends to put me right back at square one. I’ll also add - for a while I was taking VSL probiotics - they are a medical food. One gastro told me they would help, and then my current gastro said they were probably making the problem worse 🙄. So, I hope you get a lot of opinions on here because there are definitely competing ideas.
