I have IBS alternating, so obviously I can't relate to you all in quite the same way...but I sure do get C sometimes!
In the past when I was in a C bout I would start trying to add more IF, thinking that it was what my body needed. But it didn't take long before I realized that more IF was making the C WORSE instead of better! Crazy, I know...but I guess that's what Heather's said from the very beginning, right? (http://www.helpforibs.com/footer/constipation.asp#treat)
Anyway, I've found that when I get C I just need to stick with Heather's diet (even though it seem contradictory), keep up with my Tummy Fiber, and wait it out.
