      Banana smoothies with oat milk and organic hemp powder have helped me

        @Regal56 thank you so much i will try this

          @elanda Citrucel has actually been a miracle for me, as it’s a fiber laxative. Cascara Sagrada will really make you go but it’s best to only use cascara short term due to it being a stimulant laxative

          @elanda a few capsules of Citrucel, taken in the morning with copious amounts of water (coconut water / coconut milk is best), has also worked wonders for me as well.

      If you have slow gut motility I would look into Motegrity. Works really well for me

      😥 I only go about once a month if my stomach let's me, and with help, I can go more but most things stopped working for me...I don't know what else to do or try.

        @LadyGreen89 have you told your doctor. I have IBS/C It’s not a picnic. I am currently on linzess It has helped a great deal. I was tired of all the Excruciating pain sweating beyond belief and hours lying on the floor leading up to relief 😥 I’m so afraid I finally gave in and went to the ER.. costly but it saved me 5 hrs of horrible pain.

        @LadyGreen89 Do you have redundant/tortuous colon? I do and have chronic constipation. have you been on the Linzess journey? I’ve contemplating that, but it seems like a last resort due to its tendency to cause explosive diarrhea (from reviews) For me, I’ve tried eating 2 kiwi a day and started drinking Triphala tea in the morning. My stools are loose, but I still have a lot of trouble going….

          @Tomatoface linzess may cause issue the first week you take it, but after not at all. It also ends up working the best if you take it every other day or every 2days. There were no side effects after the first week/week and a half. Amitiza is similar but not as strong. Try that. I struggle so much with ibsc I go to all liquid nutrition at times.
