Hi. It all started with being fed cow's milk when I was a baby. I was constipated from that time on. In my family, we ate what is considered the American diet--meat, dairy, eggs, fruits, vegetables, processed foods, baked goods, white bread, and so on. I remained constipated while being potty trained and received repeated suppositories and enemas for a while and was traumatised by them. As I got older I slowly got better but it was not until I changed what I ate, then things really got better. I became a pure vegetarian and paid attention to combining foods. I ate whole grains, fruits and vegetables, plant proteins, etc. and that made all the difference in the world for me. Thanks.
