I know... lucky me, eh? Actually constipation and the runs are opposite sides of the same IBS coin. Both are symptomatic of a compromised gut, and it's not uncommon to have them interchangeably. I can't even remember how long I've had this problem, so I don't know what to blame..!

Mg supplements have never helped my BMs... Neither has supplementing with ACV. As I said, greek yogurt made me regular, but I got weirdly addicted to dairy while eating it. I cut it out, and after about five days things started to regulate by themselves. Don't have anything to base this on, but it intuitively feels like things are getting better, and something is healing. I've started bodybrushing and I'm wondering if that is helping...
I'm derailing my own thread, lol.
"I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.
In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."
