All except laxatives: Are fine, though there is not much evidence that vit E is helpful. Except Exercise! That is apparently emerging as one of the most helpful things you can do for PD AND the good news for you is it also helps constipation.
You should of course drink LOTS of fluids and eat fruits, veg, and fiber. If you must take a laxative, use a fiber laxative. Good luck! ...Read more

Reintroducing grains after paleo, and I feel sick. Is my body freaking out from "foreign objects" or did grain-free cause grain intolerance?

Reintroducing grains after paleo, and I feel sick. Is my body freaking out from "foreign objects" or did grain-free cause grain intolerance?

This is the norm: Grains are really hard on a person's gut but for most of us our gut gets used to it.

Were you to keep eating grains things would eventually improve though they will never feel as good as not eating them. ...Read more
