I have suffered from terrible constipation problems for years even though I take fiber, senna, cascara sagrada, chia seeds, a lot of water, etc. It's almost as if I'd eaten a bag of cement. Sooo...you can know that when I post something that "ACTUALLY WORKS" you can know that I that I know what I am talking about. I discovered Lactofermeted vegetables as part of the GAPS diet that was designed and is healing autistic children. And although I am not following the GAPS diet persay, I have eliminated grain and have been making and eating the Lactofermeted vegetables along with L-Glutamine which is healing to the gut. The vegetables are simple to make and once made keep in the fridge a long time. I just eat one serving of the sauerkraut or beets every day and the results are amazing. Turns out that before the advent of refrigeration in the 1950's, people preserved food by fermenting it and the fermenting process increases the lactobacillus "friendly bacteria" greatly. I learned how to make it on YouTube. I use a probiotic culture with mine but I understand that is not necessary. Please consider this as part of you regimen. Good to finally find something that WORKS!
