Need suggestions for decreasing transit time
Posted 14 September 2020 - 05:18 PM
Have restored most of lost functionality since powerful antibiotic wiped out my gut flora 6 weeks ago.
Now taking daily scoop of Miralax aided by daily large mug of split pea soup and serving of cooked beans with every dinner. High quality yogurt and a probiotic for breakfast every morning.
This almost gets the job done; but not quite. Transit time is slow and that makes for having to push to get the bowel movement out. Would like to find some natural foods or beverage that can help with motility and peristalsis. Would prefer to avoid medications or supplements.
Stool is firm but not hard due to aforementioned enhancements. I wouldn't mind if it were a bit looser. I have one every day; sometimes two.
All suggestions appreciated.

Hi Rob -
Try two or three tablespoons of apple cider vinegar diluted with about a half a cup with water. It won't taste good but it should do the trick.
Good luck & keep us posted!
