on again/off again constipation

Posted by john on July 08, 2002 at 13:13:48:

i continue having bouts of constipation, then bouts of really loose stool. i change my diet (eating salads, drinking plenty of water, etc) and my stool becomes very loose and easy to evacuate. the problem is that ive eaten whatever ive wanted for the largest portion of my life (im only 18) and not had to worry about constipation. it seems that recently though, i can only eat bowel-stimulating foods such as nuts and bran or salads, or i seem to get constipated. any information/advice would be GREATLY appreciated, as i feel i am too young too be having this sort of gastrointestinal problem. i would like to lead a carefree life. thank you.

John, you're right to try to get a handle on your digestive problems. I suffered with constipation for many years, on and off. I've since learned that it's very important to have a well-functioning digestive system to keep from having problems with colon and other cancers. A couple of my friends actually have Irritable Bowel Syndrome and have been able to get things working correctly again with nutrition. E-mail me if you want some guidance in this area.

Hi, john.

Listen to Cheezi. If you have caught your LGS early enough you should be able to resolve it with SR [skilled relaxation] (see the archives).

If you do not get results in a few months, you need to get a colonoscopy since UC (Ulcerative Colitis--the worst LGS can get) is not uncommon in your age group and these symptoms are early signs of that bad road.

Let us know what you learn.

Walt
