Hi everyone- I wanted to post yet again how very much I have benefited by eating one real meal a day and not overstuffing myself. I use serrapeptase enzyme 30mg once a day after meals and have been for 6 months and its impossible to explain how my life has changed for the better. I also mix my own Milk of Magnesia. I buy a large bottle of plain generic Equate MOM at walmart, buy a flavored exlax (cherry, chocolate, mint, orange) and some mineral oil. I resorted to this because Dulcolax discontinued there Milk of Magnesia. Using mineral oil along with Mom makes a huge difference. I am like mad chemist but whatever works. I had to read what each ingredient in a laxative preparation does and then found a way to mix them together to make the strongest and most effective one. I was ready to go to germany before the enzyme therapy, and I am still in a bit of shock at how well I am digesting and eliminating. I could eat that one meal and take a gallon of MOM and still not go. I felt so bound up inside, with pressure in my stomach, back, bladder and abdomen. I have no uterus but do have ovaries. I used to be able to feel them as the scar tissue moved with me, and now I just dont anymore. I have Rheumatoid arthritis and take medications that would stop an elephant from eliminating including an opiate which over the months have been taking less and less of. I am not saying that this will work for everyone overnight, and since I was desperate, I thought nothing would happen. It does make my food digest better and my laxative more effective and my entire midsection from the stomach down feels completely different and more normal that ever before. I can feel everything moving, food and liquid now which I couldnt. I felt like a block of stone. I have bowel sounds now which I hadnt before, and can belch which I couldnt before. Simple things like that seem silly but for me they were hurdles. I just wanted to let everyone know that I have given it enough of a t est that I can totally see a difference. I wish everyone a pain free day. Deborah debbie

Hello All,

I have just been released from the hospital, after having spent another 5 days in for constipation. Only this time the constipation also cause my bladder to quit emptying.

I have been suffering with constipation, adhesions and so much pain for the last 3 years. I had diagnostic laproscopy surgery on February 14, 2003, and the doctor cut my left ureter and punctured my sigmoid colon. I have had 10 abdominal surgeries since then and have been in and out of the hospital many times because of my bowels.

This time one of my doctors told me to take about 2 tablespoons of Milk of Magnesia, 2 times a day. Once in the morning and once at supper time. It doesn't cramp you and it keeps your bowels loose so that you cannot become constipated. It is helping me a whole lot. But let me tell you the taste is awful, but if you will use the mint flavored it's not too bad.

I hope the best for all of you, especially if you have had to endure anything like I have. I just turned 39 years old and I feel like I have aged about 20 years in the last 3 years. Just keep your head up and PRAY. GOD WILL SEE YOU THROUGH!!! HAVE FAITH!!!
