what is your past health history? menu examples for a few days? how much do you pee daily? what is your caloric intake? your activity level? daily sleep schedule?
When is the last time you used laxatives, enemas or colonics?
What meds are you on or have been on in the last 5 years?
What is your current height and weight?
Id do more cardio than that. 45 min a day of light walking is good for an 80 year old but for a 21 year old its pretty lame ass!
Get on your bike and explore the mountains. Ease into it.
so it's been 6 months of constipation? poor girl! upping cardio, increasing your caloric intake, doing an elimination diet to find if there are foods triggering poor digestion, increasing sleep, lowering stress...these are all things to try and that have worked for others with similar problems. a mega dose of vitamin C can give you a loose bowel to get things going if needed but it's not the long term solution obviously, however it does not have any bad side effects like herbs and such. there is no way to say for sure what's causing it, someone else may eat the same as you and not have any problems. if it were me, I'd do a few things first. skip the greens and/or any harder to digest stuff, juice it if you want, stick with fruit mono meals that I know digest well for me. I'd also add an hour of sleep. I would add one food a day and see how it does. This is where I would start. Sleep alone can make a huge difference in digestion! Keep us posted!
Sounds like a long road ahead of you. I've had similar problems, all I've learned is that healing takes time. I've been 100% fruitarian lately (including cooked squashes, zucchini and okra)... going to see a Gastroenterologist soon.
I just want to add that stimulant laxatives have definitely set me back significantly. Avoid them at all costs.
Rehydrated figs have been my main staple source of calories lately. I advise sticking to the high water content stuff. Gelatinous foods are the bomb!
