Chronic Constipation

Answered on August 26, 2014
Created March 01, 2013 at 6:39 AM

Pretty much all my health issues have been solved via the paleo/primal diet except for my most long standing issue. I have been chronically constipated since age 2 or so(I'm 20). There were times in my SAD life that I went only once every 7-10 days, and never did I go more than once every 3 days. My stools have always been large and hard and after going VLC I saw some improvement in terms of softness and size. For the first month or so I even went every 2-3 days, which was "good" for me. After being paleo for 2 years and VLC for over a year(to heal from gluten intolerance issues) I have decided to try some new things.

What I have tried so far while being VLC:

  • increased greens - made my poop green and somewhat softer when eaten in large amounts
  • increased veggies in general - no discernible change
  • increased fat(from coconut, beef tallow, butter) - poops softer and slightly sometimes more frequent, but not consistently
  • raw apple cider vinegar - no discernible change
  • fermented veggies(kimchi and sauerkraut) - gives me gas, no discernible change
  • fermented dairy(homemade goat kefir) - no discernible change
  • magnesium taurate(about 400mg per day) - helped with consistency and frequency but not a ton, helped sleep a lot more
  • drinking tons of water - no discernible change
  • nut butters(almond, sunflower seed) - made my poop soft but only when I ate like half a jar
  • magnesium sulfate(epsom salts) - works great
  • coffee(1 strong cup daily) - makes me nearly regular(poop every 1-2 days), at least for a week until tolerance develops
  • marijuana - same as coffee but my bowels become addicted and the rebound effect is EXTREME bowel constriction when I stop

On the hunch that I have a yeast overgrowth, which is one reason I stayed VLC, I tried some anti-fungal things: Oregano oil, 10-undecenoic acid(SF722), raw garlic cloves, and Pau d'Arco tea. I cycled these for 20 days, 5 days on each. Finally, after 18 years, I had a bowel movement once a day for 10 days. I don't know if it was the anti-microbial effect or just a laxative effect from the Pau d'Arco but it felt amazing. A side effect is that I became more gassy than usual for a few days during that time. Now I'm going once every 2 days but it feels like its slowing down and my stools are becoming hard again and I'm having to strain like usual.

Now I'm trying some probiotic supplements, so far Jarro-Dophilus, and have only succeeded in making myself bloated and gassy. I stopped taking them to try experimenting with upping my starch(sweet potato, squash, white rice) and fruit(kiwi, blueberries) and the bloating seems to be worse when I eat these foods. So my question is: what should I do about the constipation? Do you think it's yeast/bacterial overgrowth? And also, do you think my reaction to to starch/sugar is an adaptation period after being in ketosis for so long, or just a symptom of overgrowth? I have only been experimenting with the carb sources for a week.

I should mention that the only significant health problems I have now are sinus congestion(have had sinus problems for years, paleo made it 10x better) and constipation. I take fermented cod liver oil and l-glutamine currently. I am very lean, probably too lean, at 120 pounds and 5'10". My known allergies are gluten and formaldehyde and I am sensitive to chlorine. Thanks, if you took the time to read all this. I probably forgot some things and if you need a detailed description my diet just ask

I should also share with you that, when retraining your bowels, the only laxative I would recommend is glycerine enema. I would avoid any oral laxatives to reduce confounding variables and limit side effects. It may even help to reduce overgrowth in and of itself, because removing the waste is half the battle initially.

Good luck, the raw carrot is highly recommended as is reducing fiber to near zero levels for a while(who knows how long, I saw great results in less than a month).

I wouldn't be so sure about that advice. It's now October and sugar, dairy, and some starch are mainly what I eat(and what have helped me heal). If you read my question, VLC absolutely does not help reduce my overgrowth symptoms. Don't forget that fiber is a carb, and an impossible carb for a human to digest at that.

Also, lean meat and veggies don't seem to work for me either. It's either eat carbs or eat lots of fat with my protein. The lots of fat approach eventually leads to fatigue, at least in amounts that keep me from losing weight(I don't have fat to lose).

I've been leaning more and more towards trying a Ray Peat-ish diet, even though the guy seems like a total quack to me (A really smart quack, but nutty none the less). Seeing as my life story (at least the part about my bowels) very closely mirrors yours, I'll try what you tried. I think... I too have tried almost every other combination of fiber, fat, and water. Sometimes it seems to help for a few weeks then I somehow backtrack...

I should add that I eat hundreds of grams of sugar now, processed or not, and I don't experience fermentation from it. I think the idea that sugar feeds the overgrowth of yeasts and bacteria is a bit silly now. Clearly, they can ferment fiber so it doesn't make sense to me that vegetables are recommended when combating this kind of issue. I suppose my benefits could also be attributed to PUFA restriction and a high carb/calorie diet increasing my metabolism thus decreasing bowel transit time. In the future I will isolate some of these factors.

Fiber makes me even more constipated unfortunately. The only fiber so far that doesn't seems to be carrot fiber. Magnesium citrate is helping but I haven't got the does right just yet. Water never makes a difference for me even when I drink a gallon per day. As far as probiotics, I have tried one supplemental variety but it just seemed to make me very gassy. I will try others soon.

I drank 16 oz a day for about 3 months. My raw milk people stopped stopped selling milk for the winter at that point and my digestion remained the same after I stopped drinking it too. I've started drinking raw milk, unfermented, and it hasn't worsened anything so I don't know if kefir can help me or not. So far, the low fiber approach seems to be helping. I'll be trying magnesium citrate this week as well.

For how long did you drink daily home-made goat kefir for? If you had constipation since forever, you'd have to be drinking it for at least a month before you see some change.

Since I posted this question I have begun implementing some low fiber and Ray Peat principles. So far, I've had body temp improvement and easier to pass stools, so this is good. If improvements don't continue to develop I will try some thyroid as well. Any brand recommendation?

Well, it's been several weeks, so yes, I'm still taking it. I'm taking far from a full dose - maybe a 1/16th of a pill that a hypothyroid patient might take in a day. I figure thyroid glands were somewhat standard additions to a traditional diet, so this is an approximation of that.

stomach juices and makes it harder for us to break down foods. what happens when you keep adding fibrous foods/fiber supplements when you're constipated is that you are adding more bulk to an already backed up small intestine/colon. to get things moving at first (before gradually decreasing fiber) if you are severely backed up, he recommends vit C, magnesium, milk of magnesia, saline enemas, or epsom salts. these are the gentlest ways to get things moving and don't add any bulk to your system.

I don't know if you should get tested for SIBO or not. If you list all your health symptoms (even some weird ones) I can tell you. In the mean time try RAW BEETS (2-3 small ones) every day. It really works. You can add some raw nuts to it.

Forget VLC. Eat fruit in the morning. Take coconut oil (pour it on salads, cook with it, take a tsp in your tea/coffee).

It seems I may have found the answer. In short, Ray Peat.

For the last 4 months I have been eating Ray Peat style, at least the way I interpret a RP diet to be. Mostly low fiber fruits, raw goat's milk, grass-fed beef(raw or cooked), shellfish, orange juice, coffee, traditionally prepared animal rennet cheese(mostly parmigiano reggiano), occasional well cooked potato, and occasional Haagen-Dazs. For added fats I generally use coconut oil but sometimes good quality olive oil or butter.

I now move my bowels 1-2 times a day with the most ease I have ever experienced, and my low thyroid and hypoglycemic like symptoms have not returned once I began eating sugar. It feels like I have a really fast metabolism and I have gained 10-15 pounds of muscle/water such that I actually look healthy in weight.

I think the biggest difference was cutting out large amounts of fiber, and almost all vegetables. Secondly, the raw carrot. RP recommends a raw carrot per day, at least for a period of time, to reduce bacterial growth in the intestines. It seemed to work for me because it got rid of 99% of my gas and bloating within about a month. I also had some sort of die off reaction or cleansing of mucous or something when eating the carrot at first. After that, no more bowel irritation for me.

Here's hoping this is all still working out in a year. At first I couldn't eat dates or potatoes but now they don't seem to harm me so I guess I'm still improving. Maybe I can return to eating some broccoli one day too! To anyone on Paleohacks looking for their solution I wish you good luck. For me, fiber is a menace.

I had chronic constipation due to SIBO. I am still recovering from SIBO (the test confirmed I no longer have it, because my breath test results were perfect!) AND

I am no longer constipated.

If you don't have SIBO, eating plenty of RAW vegetables for breakfast, lunch and dinner, including raw beets (yum, yum) will do it.

Also, consuming some mandarin oranges and nuts each day helps me to stay regular.

No fermented foods for me (yet). I was trying to give up fruit, but I still eat plums.

If you do have SIBO, this is NOT FOR YOU.

Also, I have IgG antibodies to Candida Albicans in my blood. Candida causes constipation.

Hi, Some natural home remedies to cure from chronic constipation are: Fiber- A diet low in fiber may play a role in constipation. Insoluble fiber, which passes through the body almost unchanged, gives stools bulk and a soft texture, making them easier to pass. Fluids- Making sure you drink enough fluids such as water may help some people with constipation. Fluids make bowel movements softer and easier to pass. Stimulant laxative- Many herbal laxatives and "dieter's teas" are called stimulant laxatives, or anthranoid laxatives. such as cascara sagrada. Probiotic, Acupressure, Magnesium. These are some natural way to cure from constipation

More fat? Lots of water? If you did not have a bowel or colon issue, I would suggest Formula 1 Bowel Treatment by Dr. Robert Schultz www.herbdoc.com If you have any inflammation, bleeding, etc conditions, do not take formula 1 as it has habernero peppers in it. The formula comes in capsule form and is herbal. It will keep you regular each day, maybe with even more than one bowel movement.Formula 1 is not addictive and when more fat and more water doesn't work, it's what I reach for.

When you eat cleaner you naturally detoxify. You awaken toxins as your body cleanses itself. Your body's main way to eliminate toxins are via the bowel. Sometimes when you eat cleaner you awaken more toxins than your bowel can handle, which results in constipation. To really enjoy the benefits of a clean diet, get a gravity method colonic to remove the excess toxins and help tone the bowel. Read 'The Raw Food Detox Diet' by Natalia Rose or 'The Body Ecology Diet' by Donna Gates for more information. Peace out @NooMoahk

Kiwifruit is particularly powerful. I can not eat more than one a day, but members of my family who are constipated beat their constipation with 2 or 3 kiwifruit a day. As noted above, I think raw and cooked beet is also effective, more so than any other root, and I also note the effects of cardoon. Celery, specially the wild variety (smallage), is something that I have in great amounts in the garden, also makes you run for the lavatory, but not in the same sustainable manner as the foods above.

You could consider eating foods high in fructans (cardoon has some), to see if your lower tract gets active, but I am planting yacon and chicory root in the garden first time next year, so I have no experience in this.

Also, if u r suffering from yeast or bacterial overgrowth (sibo) stay the f*ck away for Sugar, starch, dairy, alcohol, and grains. Stick to low mercury fish, extra lean meat, and veggies.... Avoid fruit for the first few weeks if not the first few km ths depending on the severity of ur overgrowth issues as the sugar in fruit will feed the yeast and the sibo... Rule of thumb with yeast and sibo... Avoid all carbs and sugars bc carbs break down into sugars and sugar feeds the yeast and the sibo! Best of luck. -KB.

I wouldn't be so sure about that advice. It's now October and sugar, dairy, and some starch are mainly what I eat(and what have helped me heal). If you read my question, VLC absolutely does not help reduce my overgrowth symptoms. Don't forget that fiber is a carb, and an impossible carb for a human to digest at that.

Also, lean meat and veggies don't seem to work for me either. It's either eat carbs or eat lots of fat with my protein. The lots of fat approach eventually leads to fatigue, at least in amounts that keep me from losing weight(I don't have fat to lose).

Get allergy tested to make sure that u r not consuming something that u r allergic too as this can cause gut Inflammation and the sinus congestion and can slow the healing process and further aggravate the sibo and yeast and any other auto immune condition that u may be suffering from. Best of luck.

I had this problem, and I believe a sluggish thyroid was the cause. I'd tried pretty much everything else on your list, too.

Adding some desiccated bovine thyroid gland completely fixed it. I also started eating more fruit and fewer starches, essentially swapping them.

Did you have to continue taking it?

Well, it's been several weeks, so yes, I'm still taking it. I'm taking far from a full dose - maybe a 1/16th of a pill that a hypothyroid patient might take in a day. I figure thyroid glands were somewhat standard additions to a traditional diet, so this is an approximation of that.

Since I posted this question I have begun implementing some low fiber and Ray Peat principles. So far, I've had body temp improvement and easier to pass stools, so this is good. If improvements don't continue to develop I will try some thyroid as well. Any brand recommendation?
