    Janz and Colleen, thanks for both suggestions. I will file these away for future reference. Plan to follow doc's recommendations on hormones based on my recent slew of bloodwork when it comes in this week. Have no idea how long it takes to balance hormones. Do either of you know, on average? But, if after that, I will revisit these test suggestions. For now, I'm very fortunate to have all my testing covered by insurance, but will shell out the cash when necessary.

    Last Feb I did have an IGE bloodtest for wheat and soy (along with the other top 12) which came back negative. And I can tell my fat absorption is much better now because of the HCl, as I was saying in my last post. I've been gluten free and mostly soy-free (except cheese) for over a year, so not sure the stool would show anything - right, Colleen?

    And, even though I said yesterday I was interested in the Amino Acid test, I should probably correct my hormonal balance first, because of how it influences everything else (like Dr Kruse's latest blog on the adrenals pointed out.)

    Thyroid hormones made a big difference to me, too, for a while. I'm beginning to see how it is connected to the adrenal gland, which has to work harder when you give it more thyroid. And the adrenal gland can't do it's job without good sex hormone balance (coming not only from itself, but the ovaries). I think. This is my latest take on what Dr Kruse is saying.

    BTW - supplementing Vit D made a significant dent in my "lack of motivation or interest in usual passions" (hate using the word depression, as I relate that to the more serious condition that I've been in before.) Thyroid hormones, like what Colleen said, is what got me out of that really dark place. However, I'm still not convinced it was the only way, but all I knew at the time.

    It is supposed to be highly effective.

    Glam had good effects using Kyolic Garlic, you may want to try that too if you have Candida issues. I'm sure she can speak more to it.

    Constipation

    Repost....
    NO More Constipation



    First off, i am a layman so perform your own due diligence on the subject.

    Having said that let me share with you what can be helpful

    first you need to swear off fiber supplements immediately and forever. They are damaging to you in more ways than just the constipation.
    Second you need to empty your bowel, here is how i would go about that.
    Products:
    Magnesium Citrate Pills
    Magnesium Citrate Liquid
    Enema Bag
    Epsom Salts

    for three days take 2400 - 3000 mg of the Mag Cit pills. space them out take them all together doesn't matter just get them in.
    On day three drink a 16 oz bottle of the Mig cit liquid and 2 quarts of water. You should probably be alone and free for the day.
    Explode....... ( did i mention you should be alone??? also dont be outside say 10 steps of the throne. when it comes.... good god watch out )
    now that you have emptied everything you ever ate you will need to rest. it can be wearying

    continue to take at least 1200 mg of Mag Cit pills daily for the next 3 - 6 months. you will know when you no longer need it.

    once a week for 6 weeks give yourself an enema following the best instructions you can fine. Use only water and Epsom salts. lemon/coffee/aloe/etc are not required they are cool and sexy but really dont address your concern. just Epsom salts will be all you need. the lower intestine is an upside down U with the part connecting to your anus on the right side. when you fill up you want to lay on the left side to give gravity the best chance possible to fill the entire intestine.

    go slow gas can build up and block the waters entry and could be annoying to clean up.

    Dont expect all the water you put in to come out when you relieve your self after the enema. if you are as bad as you say you will have pockets and soft spots in the bowel which need irrigation much like an abscessed tooth. it is normal for ammonia to be trapped in and under these pockets so the smell can be interesting.

    After 6 weeks give yourself a 6 week break before any additional enemas.

    If you object to giving yourself an enema you can fine a practitioner who specializes in colonics. these people are certified so dont use one that isn't. Also dont go until you first purge yourself. The ones i have used are rather narrow minded about their field of study and do have all sorts of stories of the total healing power of the colonic itself. My experience is that just like most specialist they have drank too much of the koolaid. they know their stuff buy you cannot rely on them to know YOUR stuff.

    you should feel remarkably better after the explosion. it isn't uncommon to feel physically drained however which is why you need to rest.

    Add walking to your regimen as walking tones the core and you will notice most likely within the 6 weeks a marked improvement.

    planks could also help. after the explosion.

    after you get clear you need to stock up on good flora and fauna. Massive amounts are required since you live in america and stop taking antibiotics for non critical stuff.

    I highly recommend a quality shelf stable product by standard process call ProSynbiotic as well as their Gut Flora. the former takes care of the upper gi and the later the lower.

    only then can you call yourself done

    good luck and good hunting

While the bottle says 1000 mg, on the Supplement Facts label it says: Calcium: 100 gm and Magnesium 150 mg (from 1000 mg of Magnesium Malate)

    My question is, should I be taking just one of the 1000 mg Magnesium Malate pills and just forget about the Magnesium Oxide? Any other recommendations welcome.

    FYI: I've been constipated most of my life and with magnesium I tend to have very loose stools. finding a balance is not easy.

    So are these trustworthy? I've heard so much about how "allergy tests" are practically worthless, from conventional and traditionally-minded folks alike. Are the stool tests for dairy, gluten, soy very accurate?
