Liquid for constipation
by: TJ Chambers

A gallon a day is a good amount to drink. As I already mentioned, a serious problem is the medication and hopefully you can get off of that one day.

If you drink apple juice, that will help with constipation. Make sure to get apple juice that does not have added sugar or any other sweetener. I also try to get just apple juice, not apple juice from concentrate and I prefer Organic.

Costcos has an apple juice I get. Its the kirkland brand and inexpensive.

Note: I don't recommend drinking this much apple juice anymore. To help with constipation, see this page for natural supplements that will help.

Constipation
by: TJ Chambers

I'm going to add a new section to this site about constipation. Until then, I will give you some information.

Adderall causes constipation (per their own sheet, see the page on adderall). So, you need help battling a side effect of a medication. You may not be able to over come it.

I don't know why, but adderall makes you very thirsty which seems to me, it (may) causes dehydration.

If this is true, then that explains why it causes constipation. Your bowels need liquid. If it gets to dry, it will absorb all the liquids and make your feces dry and move through very slow. This will cause your body to re absorb the toxins and waste that the body was getting rid of and will toxify your blood.

Then your organs will slow shut down and you will have serious health problems. This is the #1 issue for American's health problems.

To overcome this, you have to eat a proper diet of non mucus forming foods. Some mucus forming foods are those that cause an allergic reaction (mucus to form), like over heated grains. These grains are in pastas, crackers, cookies, breads, pizza, etc etc.

Other mucus forming foods are dairy and gluten.

For most people, meat doesn't digest very well and moves through slowly causing a backup (constipation).

Years of a abuse on the bowels cause it to malfunction. When changing your diet to a proper one, you also need to help it move while also repairing it.

Laxatives only move the bowel and don't repair it. So they become addictive in the sense that you are completely dependent on them to have a bowel movement.

I have an herbal supplement that acts as a laxative (helps the bowels to move), but also has herbs that will help the bowel to heal. If you only took this herbal supplement and didn't change your diet, there probably wouldn't be much healing that could take place.

Being that your on medication, I don't know if healing could take place if the meds are doing damager to your bowels.

Also, since your on such a highly controlled medication, I recommend you consult with your doctor before introducing herbs and minerals.

Note: I don't recommend drinking this much apple juice anymore. To help with constipation, see this page for natural supplements that will help.

help with constipation
by: Deborah Merlin

See a naturalpathic doctor (ND)to locate one in your area go to this link. www.naturopathic.org
One of adderall's side effects is irregular bowel movements. A naturopathic doctor can help wean you off adderall. Amino acids are a great natural way to help with serotonin levels. ND's are educated with this protocol.

I am not a health care professional but what helped with our constipation was taking 1- 400mg of magnesium oxide with meals 2x a day. Drink more water and have 4 ounces of water upon raising.

also helpful is the yerba prima daily fiber formula with glass of water before bed.

Stop eating constipating food such as dairy. What food do you crave the most is usually the cause.
