The Wife and I have started Paleo about a month ago, cheating on Saturdays if we've done well. Last week she started having diarreah and she had a whole tin of black beans with her Dinner. This solved the problem temporarily but its since come back with a vengeance. She is now seeing snot like substance and once had some blood when wiping.
Typical response from others is eat BRAT, Bananas, Rice, Applesauce, Toast. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BRAT_diet
We have booked a doctor appointment for next week, like most poeple we dont trust Doctors are on-par with research, and would just hand over antibiotics perscriptions. Not that I trust strangers on the internet but an opinion in a majority is usually right.
Here's what we're going to try; Probio 7 Advanced Formula http://www.boots.com/en/Prebio-7-Advanced-Formula-30-capsules_981352/ (notice their typo!) She came off antibiotics about 2 months ago for an insect bite, we're suspecting this is the cause. Taking these should tidy things up hopefully.
We'll be upping the more solid veggies she takes in and keeping the fluid intake high. Dropping the fruit lower to avoid it having a negative affect.
We're also going to buy some NOW Food Super Enzymes to keep it all ticking along nicely. But the soonest we could get these was next week so we're going with Probio first.
She has a history of constipation from before we started on Paleo so there are definately the usual female IBS symptoms (I hate oversimplifying to IBS! grr).
So my question to you all! Is there anything we're missing? Or doing wrong? A silver bullet solution? We want to avoid taking drugs and ideally keep it all natural.
Any help is appreciated.
