How long does it take to address long-standing constipation problems?
This question comes up a lot. If you are following the protocol in this post it will take 60 to 90 days. In order to really get to the root of the problem and make it stick, it takes time.
Please ease off laxatives. Stopping them abruptly will cause constipation.
If you have had long-standing slow motility and constipation issues, it does take time to help address them. But to be fair, being able to help something in a few months that has been a problem for a long time is pretty awesome.
Laxatives are a fine SHORT-TERM solution to constipation. They are not intended to be used long-term.
Reflux-Mucosal Support contains bitter herbs that are not drowned out in high doses of sugar or artificial sweeteners. (Note: If you have a very sensitive stomach or hate natural sweeteners/flavors, please consider buying an additional bottle of Regularity then pouring the capsule into a drink of your choice. Regularity also contains the MucoSave® that is in Reflux.)
For years, we primarily focused on activating motility with really high doses of Upper GI Relief (which does help the lower GI as well as gastric emptying). But when the system is flared up with inflammation it is also very bound up making motility extremely hard to reestablish. We find that when a person combines both activates motility and helping calm what's flared up the system starts to work properly on its own again.*
No, this is not a 1 week gimmick. It does take time. No, it isn't habit forming. When your motility has turned on again it should stay on.
There are times, however, that may require additional short-term help to keep your digestion moving: sicknesses, new meds, new supplements (like iron), travel, etc.
