Re: Constipation and Probiotics
HI Bunni. I have dealt with what you are dealing with off and on, both before dx and since...I see a nutritionist, who tried me on Probiotics, i found it made the situation worse! Because this is a random thing for me, and doesnt happen often, I started talking to my favorite person at the vitamin shope where I purchased those probiotics, she had me try both Acidophilus and Flax seed oil.
I take a ton of Omega 3-6-9..Evening Primrose, fish oils and now the Flaxseed- and believe it or not, i think its what made the difference for me. Since being on this combo of oils- Im not having this problem and its been about 8 months! Doctors will tell you to increase your fiber- if you dont eat fiber, at least use a soluable fiber supplement in your cookng/drinks....you can get that anywhere. I hope you find some relief soon...and as for the question can you over-do probiotics? Definately my nutritionist would say yes...anytime you are playing with the digestive tract, you can change it to the extreme. So, if you think you are using too many, cut back now. I hope you get relief soon. This is a horrible thing to experience.
