I have had "IBS" for about 15 years, with swings from severe diarrhea/cramps to constipation. A few years ago, I stopped eating wheat, and VOILA! No more diarrhea and cramps, but now I am constantly and agonizingly constipated. I did a cleanse 3 weeks ago, and took Mag citrate with the cleanse to keep things moving. But now, my gut is NOT functioning for me. (My transit time sems to be about 4 and a half days) I am miserable! I am taking glutamine and Acidophilus and well as digestive enzymes and a very healthy diet, as well as drinking tons of water.
But I am miserable! I dont want to get hooked on laxatives or enemas, but I literally don't know what to do at this point.
I have hypothyroidism but my levels are normalized by my Synthroid dosage.
