Would you recommend magnesium citrate and charcoal capsules.. I have terrible constipation, bloating and constantly windy..I've not heard of these solutions before.

Yes Millyvannilly magnesium citrate works well for constipation ,I used to take 3 x200g tablets taken together now I just take 2x200g best taken evening, charcoal capsules absorb excess gas and toxins ,don't take charcoal directly after medication though because it will also absorb that.Magnesium citrate was lifesaver for me with constipation.

Me too Stacy29 Cassie17. I have had IBS for 22 years, since I was 18 and I have been through all lots of medications and alternative therapies but nothing has worked or helped for a significant amount of time. Have a read of other posts on the site, as there is a lot of information already on here, and see if there are things you haven't tried & maybe give them a go. Its all just trial and error but hopefully you might just hit on something that works for you.

You could have a fermenting gut, try garlic and parsley tablets and see if it h lips, everyday for a month. Perhaps ask your doctor for a Dysbiosis test.
