Do you eat salads? Have a Romaine/spinach salad and sprinkle a tablespoon of ground flax on it. Flax is a great thing for your body, contains Omega 3's and helps with constipation naturally. Salad will also help. Most people on PPI's experience just the opposite, sometimes diarrhea, bloating, flatulence, headache. Those are the common side effects. You can buy ground flax in any grocery store and it has little taste, you'll not dislike it.
