Thank you, Thank you, Thank you a million times over! Voila…just like that increasing the constipation solution worked!! Thank you so much for being so encouraging, positive, optimistic and knowledgeable about this! I think it is very important that you emphasize listening to our bodies and I’m starting to learn a lot! I will make sure I’m titrating the constipation solution as needed and paying careful and mindful attention.
Thank you for giving me my life back…
Gratefully yours,
XXXXX

You are without question on the road to a full recovery. I understand your worry. Remember that it is still very early. You are at the very beginning of this journey. There may be some ups and downs. We keep marching forward making adjustments to the protocol. Remember that the Constipation Solution is your best friend right now. You can increase or decrease as needed. So increase it now. You know that you have reached your daily need when your stool gets loose and this can change each day. The other stuff is for the long haul which is ultimately fixing the issue permanently. You should also experiment with the amount of fiber you need.

Hi Dr. Snow,

I hope you had a nice weekend! I’m writing because things seem to have slowed down today…I had a BM this morning and again this evening but it was very hard and dry.
I’m so scared to mess anything up or take too much of something I shouldn’t. Can I take extra constipation solution at night if things are slow during the day?

Sincerely,
XXXXXX

XXXXX–that is great news. I am so happy for you. Sometimes we hit the nail right on the head the 1st time. As I have told so many people there is a genetic component to the problem of constipation and when that is figured out and addressed individually the results can appear to be miraculous. Knowing this you should never be constipated again.

The reason that we use fiber is that with all of those years of the bowel being stagnant those muscles have atrophied and need exercise. They will bounce back to full strength and most people do not need to take a fiber supplement ongoing. You need to know how to take it though. I always prescribe to take the fiber after using other supplements to get the ball rolling. To take the fiber 1st without the other supplements can be a disaster.

Unlike inflammatory bowel conditions like IBS or colitis which can be completely healed in a matter of months it takes longer to rejuvenate the bowel and ultimately make it self sufficient.

So congratulations and keep going!

Good Morning Dr. Snow,

I have great news!! You asked me to hold off on the fiber and write back in a week. It will be a week tomorrow that I started the colon solution and constipation solution. Day 1 I took 1 of the constipation solution and nothing….Day 2, 2 constipation and nothing and day 3 I took 3 and started having BM’s. I had 3 that day and have been having 2-3 soft BM’s a day since. I can’t tell you what a miracle this is because I have not had anything but rock hard stools in almost 2 years!! I’m excited and happy and relieved. I have been telling everyone I know because my friends and family know what a struggle this has been. I’m starting to get crazy ideas about being able to travel and have a life again some day!! I really had no expectations because I had tried everything under the sun to no avail but the supplements you prescribed are great stuff and you are most definitely the colon whisperer!
I am really nervous about starting the fiber because I had such a bad experience previously but trust more than ever in your protocol. When should I start it? And if need be can I increase the constipation solution if the fiber slows things down and if so how much?
Thank you so much! I hope things continue to keep moving!!
Warmly,
XXXXXX

Great email! Very pleased you told me this—-will make a huge difference.
1. The antibiotic is the villain. I asked because 75% of the time constipation is genetic. If not then there is something that had to change the bowel. I suspected that.

2. Fiber—-we should NEVER just take fiber for constipation. If you have stool already stuck in your bowel not moving to take more fiber it will cause a ‘back up’ putting lots of stress on the GI tract and CREATING obstructions.

In fact let’s not take the fiber initially and see if you get the ball rolling and then f/u with the fiber only if needed. Let’s see what happens.
Send me an email in a week.

Severe Constipation
Summary of Symptoms:  Severe Constipation with Obstructions. See Pre Appt Form below

Colon Solution- take 2 capsules in the am.
Constipation Solution- start with 1-3 capsules daily and increase amount until the stool gets soft. You will need to experiment with this until you find the dose that allows you to have 2 – 3 bowel movements per day.
GI Fiber Solution- take 2 tsps twice daily-am & pm with water or juice.

Comments: This will take apprx 3-4 months to heal. This process will occur in several steps. This is the 1st step and we need to see how your body reacts to this. Then we will take the next steps according to that. One of the problems is that the bowel muscles have gotten weak and you have lost your peristalsis. We can get that back but 1st we have to see to what degree we need to clean you out. So let’s see what happens over the next month. I recommend that you send me an email in apprx 3 weeks to tell me how you are doing. At that time I will be able to assess any necessary changes to your protocol.
For now keep using the Miralax and anything else that you need to keep you going along with the supplements that I prescribe. The key is to keep you going whatever it takes. We may find that you have to do a deeper cleanse to get back to square one.
