She is complaining of constipation - about a year...

Question:

Hi, I heard Wade on the Intermittent Fasting podcast and I would love some guidance on what my daughter might need. Is this the place to ask questions for a customized package (she is not currently under doc supervision... we are self diagnosing!) Thanks, Weary Mom Who's Tried Everything My daughter's history: 1. She is complaining of constipation - about a year (I've had her on various probiotics, Atantril, Dr. Gundry's green powder (about 2months), she's seen an iridologist (mostly for acne). I'm considering a liver detox for her (ayurvedic or Medical Medium). We've done everything google can advise us, but have not seen a naturopath - planning on seeing one soon. 2. She is on Accutane for acne - not cystic, just bumps - but her skin has been her problem since childhood - which is why I got her off dairy, soy, gluten - which helped clear her dry skin patches when she was little. Of course, dairy, soy and gluten make their way into her diet on occasion now (at 17 yo). 3. When she has pain it's usually a stomach ache or headache related 4. She is a very clean eater - mostly paleo - with less "meat". She is 5'4" approx 118 (so there is no weight issues) 5. I ordered the Biooptimizer probiotic, enzymes, HCL (could not find the constipation pills on your site)- about $400 worth of supplements, I will try them too. Hoping the naturopath I'm going to take her too does not make her stop taking and order another whole host of pills. So as you can see, we have been all over the board, spending a ton of $$. She has not found much relief. She is otherwise a healthy, vibrant young lady. But the constipation or irregularity is causing much anxiety now. She doesn't complain of stomach aches after eating (SIBO?? IBS??) or bloating/gas - just constipation.

Wade's Response:

If that’s the case, I would suggest going through a 21 day Pancha Karma protocol which is an Ayurvedic treatment that is really good at eliminating toxins from the body. It’s quite intense but very effective. In order to such a protocol you would need the guidance of an Ayurvedic Practitioner.
The other option is that her diet is not suitable for her genetic or eptigentics. My personal ND Katrine Volysnky would figure this out in no time. My suggestion is to reach out to her at livepurenow@gmail.com and get her input.She works remotely with people and let her know I sent you which will put you to the front of the line.
