It's classic 'die-off' (read Herxheimer reaction) from dead yeast and bacterial cells as they pass through the body. You're just killing off some critters, and as they die they release endotoxins which can make you feel ill. The gut reacts with... (more)

I have heard both that Miralax (aka Polyethylene Glycol) is a benign laxative and that it actually damages the gut flora. How severely does Miralax affect gut flora?

We chemists see PEG has fairly inert and biologically compatible. Being non-toxic, it's not killing gut flora. It might though through its mechanism of action ultimately cause bacteria to get flushed out of your intestines, just a guess on that. (more)

A good heaping teaspoon of Natural Calm always works well as a laxative for me! That or something else with magnesium citrate in it might help you.

I seem to be sensitive to sources of MCT oil, like coconut milk. Too much, and a laxative effect is a sure bet. Is the laxative effect something that fades away after a period? Any idea what causes it? I know that MCT oil has antibiotic... (more)

If you're talking about coconut milk, you may just be having trouble dealing with all the fat. It can act as a laxative, not necessarily as a diuretic. You may need to start slowly, then ramp up the fat over time so your body can deal with it. If... (more)
