An increase of the diatomaceous earth (DE) dosage + inadequate water intake= CONSTIPATION! Ugh. Yesterday, I felt fine except for the brief headache and bout of queasiness so I didn’t think much about increasing my DE dose for the second day in a row. Looking back, now I realize why I didn’t have more than one bowel movement yesterday. I have a water bottle which holds 33 oz. of water, I’m going to try to get at least two of those down today to eliminate the constipation, no pun intended. I drank about 66 oz. of water today, and it helped to ease the constipation. I’ll have to wait until tomorrow to see if I’m back on track.
