thanks,you have inspired many with your post... we should not be dependent on what the doctor will say because we know our body way more than they do.. I myself take care of my system with vegetables and fruits..all natural..though I am a bloater.. I can provide remedy with papaya,fennel, aloe, Wormwood , and cardamom..this helps a lot specially with chronic constipation... I cannot control my eating habits..and we i have irregular eating habits too.. I would like to follow what you did, cut out on Sugar and gluten..will start, however I still keep with me my all natural Digestic for constipation.
