thank you i have time when dont go for one week then i have to use laxitives stong ones but when i eat bran i go but makes tummy swollen thats wht want a fiber suplement that wont do that to me
Jamie, I think bran might be too much fiber. The goal, as I am sure you know, is to go every day with as little discomfort as possible. Do you have to strain to go? Is it hard to pass stool? If so, you might want to add a stool softener to your fiber supplement.
Psyllum Husk based fiber supplements are very difficult to digest and process for folks who tend to IBS-C. I know because I took them for years until I discovered that all that bulking fiber had caused an impacted bowel. I recently purchased a fiber supplement at the health food store that has only three ingredients: flax seed, oat bran, and acacia gum. It does not cause bloating and does not suck up all the moisture in the colon as psyllum based fiber does. You can read about it here:
You might also benefit from colon hydrotherapy. When I was suffering with extreme constipation, my GI doc told me to go for this treatment. It was the best thing I ever did for myself. It got my system moving again NATURALLY. You can read about it here:
I also take a natural product that supports natural motility and softens stool for easier passage. I really swear by this product. I've been taking it for almost two years and it's made a huge difference in helping to regulate bowel movements. It can be ordered online:
Of course, the best course of action is to consult with a GI specialist. They may have some additional suggestions and will know your particular problem better than we do. Good luck! Hang in there!
