Hi

Thanks for writing in again

The vomiting could be because of absolute constipation that you have

I would suggest you go for a colon cleansing program

To prevent constipation permenantly
Take plenty of fluids orally
Take lot of fiber
If this does not help, go for Psyllum husk or Isapgull

The pain could secondary to loaded bowel

Hope this helps
Do write back in case of concern

I have done a liver and gall bladder cleanse with Epsom salts. I have passed stones from somewhere, small and sparkly to 1 inch wide.

Now I have the runs. I am eating jello, pudding and rice. The pain is still there but the food does get by and I don't throw up.

My daily diet consist of a smoothie with wheat germ, flax seed, fruit, yogurt and coconut milk. I recently (3 months ago) went on a non-gluten diet.

My HDL's and LDL's have changed to a healthier #.

I think losing weight has created this problem. What do you think?
