Loose Bowel movemnt

I am a 38year old woman, who has been expereincing loose bowel movement for the over 13 years.  Before the occurs, my stomach cramps, my mouth wters and I feel weak and useless.  If i am not close to a bathroom then my clothes are ruin.  This could happen at least 2-3 times per month.  I have been to a gasto for this problem but was told everything is fine.  How can everything be fine when I must stay close to a bathroom because at any givien time I do not know when I will have to "explode" as I call it because it happens just like that.

You should consider getting another opinion. Your situation
does not sound pleasant to have to live with.

same here. exact same discription.  "blow up". i have concidered milk intolerance and tried lactaid. no help. i am nervous all the time and figure that is part of it.  now i am concidering the effects of coffee....caffeine, it effects nerves.  am going to try decaffinated and no cokes.  also i'v noticed that prepared sweets go straight thru in liquid form, no more sweets from the bakery and eating out seems to upset my stomach so maybe its the food preservatives and not the sugar...try a healthier, raw food diet and then add the suspisious foods one at a time.  Let me know if your the nervous type, too.  ( i also have been turned wrong side out with testing and found to have healthy inerds)//bumblebee

I know this symptom and solved it with a change in diet. Found out I am allergic to beer, which I like. So that's gone. You might have become allergic to something consumed throughout life. I now eat broccoli, zuchinni, and mushroom with fresh grated parmesean cheese with almost anything and I have been normal since. Steam them for only a few minutes. TV dinners and fast food bring me right back to LBM. As a side note, I drank quantities of milk until I suddenly became intolerant at age 18. I'm 38. Good Luck

I have had problems with my bowels as well
After my last colonics I felt great, more energetic but my bowel problems seemed to continue, which included bloating, gas, diarrhea with undigestid food in stool, and fatigue. I figured it was probably intestinal parasites, so i went out and found a clense kit and started that, as well as some black walnut to expell worms. The fiber didn't seem to bulk up my stools but the black walnut did help with Stool formation, I was ready to give up. Then one day I cam across hydrated bentonite clay, one tablespoon of that and I had perfect elimination overnight it was a little pale but all symptoms were gone. However if I stopped the clay they would return.
So the clay worked well for about 3 months and then it slowly begain to stop working I started to take black walnut, alfalfa, probiotics, charcoal,bentonite fiber just to try to keep regular bowel movements and slowly the symptoms returned eventually all of the things I used to take to keep me regular such as balck walnut and alfalfa stopped working. Even imodium (immodium) stopped working , it used to stop everything and quick fix all problems. I tried not taking everything and the stool that was eliminated became almost completely undigested and pale. So no problem right digestive problem? I went out and got the best digestive enzyme I could find and ox bile and hcl, this digestid the food alright but the day after I took it all I was completely exhasted. I made an elimination that afternoon, digestid food but still vary pale.
So Ive been taking a parasite formula, alfalfa, bentonite, probiotics(from jaro) grapefruite seed extract, some digestive enzimes and a friendly yeast called Saccharomyces Boulardii which is the most benificial supplement ive been taking. I still have smelly powdery stools but at least I feel better. I sleep well, I have no fever, my glands are not swollen, Im trying to avoid all carbs but brown rice and a little bread, also red meat, scince then I have lost some weight but it is slowly returning, I have food cravings, Im quite often hungery even shortly after I eat. I don't often lose my appitite unless Im upset or depressed which is also now a bit of a problem as well as iritability.
Doctors tell me I have IBS and that i should take more fiber and relax. Well im taking fine ground psyllium fiber and I feel a bit better but my stools are very knotted with some mucas. This seems to stop now and then but my stools become loose and brittle, could this be a sign that my colon is clearing out?
